This generation of Suzuki Alto was produced between 1984 to 1988, however in third world markets it was manufactured for a long time. Maruti in India also produced the 2nd gen Alto, but the car was retired around 2012/13. By the time it was discontinued in India, it was available for just INR 2.78 lac, and was better equipped than the locally assembled Pak Suzuki Mehran.

Despite a higher price tag, primitive suspension setup, lack of safety and equipment and miserable built quality, Mehran has ruled the roads of Pakistan and has been associated with almost every family of this country during all these years.
