Maruti Suzuki’s new Alto – A-star

Recently we shown you our artisitic impression on Maruti Suzuki A-star but today we have few more special items in our menu. Here are two photos of new A-star which will be launched in India during diwali. But before that Maruti Suzuki’s A-star will be showcased at the upcoming Paris auto show in early October. The A-star will replace the Alto in european markets and in India it will co-exist with Alto and Wagon-R. The new car will be called as alto in europe and A-star in india

Maruti Suzuki A-star: Though the car is not as exciting as the concept car it looks great in the photos. The high bonnet line, vertically stacked headlamp cluster, low slung grille, neatly stacked fog lamps and four spoke alloy wheel adds chracter to the A-star. The high roof line  tells that we can expect a roomy hatch from the alto maker. The upswept shoulder line moves upward near the C-pillar which means lesser glass area for the A-star’s rear passengers. Overall the styling is eye pleasing and will lure fair sex for sure.

Maruti Suzuki A-star: The A-star will be powered by a 1L K-series engine developing 65bhp. The new engine will give Alto or A-star customer more happiness with the much better fuel economy. This family car will feature lively cabin treatment and it will come with lots of comfort features and stylish features. The novel tachometer that first seen on the splash will make into the A-star. The rev counter will sit on top of the dashboard in its own individual housing. A-star will be price between Rs3-4 lakhs and there will be no diesel option atleat till the end of 2009.  Looking for a small car! wait for two more months, the i10 killer is ready!

  1. Did anyone notice the flip out rear windows? One way to keep costs down: don’t allow the rear windows to roll down!! Cool design overall, Maruti/Suzuki should have gone for a more agressive look with smaller headlights. The present ones look too big for an A-segment car.

  2. Dear Sir, I have planned to buy Alto car. Now after seeing your advt would like to wait for 2 more months to buy your new A-STAR. Pls let me know the approx mileage A-STAR will get and also exact price. Pls also inform when booking will start and time of delivery. Pls do reply at the earliest. Regards/Sridhar. S

  8. The concept A-star looks brilliant. Sad that maruti decided to change it to a more conservative design. I was sure I wanted an A-star when I saw the pictures of the concept car. Now, I am not that impressed. I hope that Maruti has kept the interiors of the concept which looked funky and futuristic. I will wait and see whether I like it.

  26. At present Iam having a Maruti 800, purchased in february 2000. I would like to purchase Alto LXi. But I understood that Maruti is bringing out a new model in the place of Alto with Maruti A Star. Iam from Trivandrum, Kerala.My dealer is Indus.Iam interested to go for A Star. What will be the price on the road, inclusive of tax? When can I have the booking? And when this car will be delivered in Trivandrum? I have to take a decision immediately. Yesterday(6/october/2008)I made a visit to Indus and finalised the price for my old vehicle and collected my invoice. But today (7/october/2008)I happened to know about the new model A Star.So I changed my idea.

  36. I WAS ABOUT TO GO FOR I10. BUT AFTER SEEING THE ALTO A-STAR AM SURE TO GO FOR IT. NEVER MIND OF WAITING FOR TWO MONTHS.PLS LET ME KNOW THE MILEAGE.

  37. This one looks like a cheap ‘toy’ car to me. The original A-Star concept was much more trendy, sporty and muscular! It had some superb design features like broader and full-grill bumpers, sharper side skirts, dual tone headlights, futuristic side mirrors, better alloy wheels, top-class tinted glasses, classy door locks. Some other features hidden over here include a superb dashboard with digital speedometer and touch screen LCD controls, neon illuminated interiors, stylish taillights and sexy tiny antenna at the back of the car(not the long and ugly one shown over here), all this and much more… I had expected a lot more than this from the commercial version, if not the concept itself. This can be considered as an upgrade to Maruti’s existing line-up, but this is ‘no’ new revolutionary car. I would consider it an insult to the original design. This has failed to impress me!

  38. It sucks as compared to its concept design. I was very excited about A-star since i saw it concept design. But looking at the real design , it looks like a modified i10. I am very disappointed. Concept design was so good and futuristic.

  39. its realy good to see this segment its a realy beauty… very nice,thanks maruti, please let me know the expected price for new maruti alto n other technical specifications…. i am intrestet to buy this car….when it will lauch in Jabalpur MP

Pls tell me the exact date of booking The Car seems to be quite atractive enough from the Manufacturers, but need to know more on its Variants, Features, Mileage, price.
