    I dont need power windows/steering etc etc, I will use it as a second car i already have a liana in my home and using it as a family car. I will use that car for my office, so economy, suspension, performance on CNG is more valuable to me as compared to auto trans / power steer/windows etc......

    Suspension of SANTRO is all good. But one can't underestimate ALTO 660cc. As it is not the product of PakSuzuki.

    As far as economy & performance on CNG is concern no doubt SANTRO GV is a decent option.

    Just dont look only for suspension, but also look for reliability and EFI Technology via which ur fuel economy would be lot better than any oridnary or without EFI Car.

    Go for Santro,,,,,It has no match in its class in all aspect.

    Best Of luck.

    660cc alto is gud in sense of 2nd or 3rd car if talking abt usage, its obviously not in coparission with santro which is a gud family car with 1000cc MpFi engine, and runs like hell on cng with Ac and gives best mileage if concerning any 1000cc car in market right now,
    although its ur personal choice, in my openion santro has no comparission with Alto 660 cc .......

    few things like spares not available like that of santro which is a market car.

    cng will be big issue in 660 cc alto .

    mileage of 660 cc car will be fine if u drive at like 60 to 70 max, but if u cross 70 km/hr , it will eat like a 1800cc car, and thats a fact, example is mini pajero, or any car u take , power to weigh ratio does matters in this regards.

    resale of alto will never be like that of santro in upcoming few years cos santro has made its market but alto have to take some time,

    but besides all that ........ there is gud price difference in both cars also, alto is 2002 model one person bought for 425 k ...... santro u can have 2005 in 400-450 k depending on condition .......

    else choice is urz bro ...... do some research before thinking of any out of market car .
    my vote is for santro for sure ..........

    Best of luck

    @aly
    yaar tell me abt the spares availibilty ? any shopes providing parts like that of engine and body parts ? any name of shop ? here in pindi isb ppls are still not aware of its spares, just curious cos if there are parts availble then they could be compare with santro's, so it would be easy for many ppls to compare both cars, economy wise, i belive alto is best but with in a city where u dont stress ur car and be in 60 and less km/hr speed, above that u can imagine,

    cheerz
