A- Star comes with Suzuki’s 3-Cylinder, 1 Litre KB series engine with 67 Ps of maximum power @ 6200 rpm and 90 nm of torque @ 3500 rpm. The car has been placed in the market by Maruti so that they can compete better with the Hyundai 's best selling car i.e i10 at this moment .
Compared with i 10, A star has go brutal looks . I went to the showroom yesterday and had a look , and you know what , It has got killing looks from the front especially the headlights . But its back looks much like a combination of Santro and Alto moudled like swift . The dash board also looks pretty much cool with a integrated music player . But One thing I dont like is , it gives me feeling of driving a matiz from inside i.e as a driver you wont feel like you are placed at a better height so that you can view comfortably over the dashboard as shown in the figure.
A Star rides on 13-inch tubeless tyres 155/80 R13 and comes with gas-charged dampers. Front suspension is the universal Mc Pherson Struts and Coil Springs while rear is an Isolated Trailing Link Suspension with Coil Springs.
The car will be built exclusively in India for the domestic market and will be exported to 150 countries accross Europe, Middle East, Latin America, Asia, Australlia and Africa.The A-Star comes in a total of 9 colors: Azure Grey, Arctic White, Sunlight Copper, Midnight Black, Paradise Blue, Silky Silver, Healing Green, Bright Red and Desert Brown.
The pricing Ex-Showroom Delhi is as follows:
- A-star Lxi - Rs3,46,775
- A-star Vxi -Rs3,74,775
- A-star Zxi - Rs4,11,775
What I feel about A - star is like , if I have to buy some newly released car as an alternate for i10 , one can go for this .
Anyone had a look on the new dude in town , Please throw your comments .
