First impressions of Maruti Suzuki A-STAR - A User Review
It can be said that the Maruti Suzuki A-Star was born to rule the roads.
Maruti Suzuki has come up with a strong competitor for Santro, i10 D-Lite and Getz GLE. The body style of the A-Star looks similar to the Getz, but improved. The front of the car gives a good impression of a skilled work in improving style. At the same time, the car can be called as an intermediate between an Alto and a Swift.
There is distinguishable difference between the model shown in the Auto Expo and the one actually produced - it looks like a decent updated style car. Surely though it will be disappointing for the people who were expecting the actual concept car A-star.
The interiors look good. The legroom has been improved and the seats are very much comfortable. Dashboard is awesome with all controls available at no stretch of arm. The consol and dashboard display are delightful with dashboard lights on . The hatchback door design gives impression of an improved version of Zen.
With 3 cylinder 998 cc engine and a power output of 67/6200 you can expect 16KMPL in city and max 20KMPL in highway. The power is quite good compared to i10 with 4 cylinder 66 ps engine.
With the power of 67Ps, very good dashboard design, refreshing body style compared to Alto, this car will become the chosen one for the people looking for a car better than an Alto and with a lower price and decent body style compared to a Swift.
