Maruti Suzuki A-Star is actually a the latest generation of Suzuki Alto hatchback. The last generation of Alto, which has been on sale in India since a decade now, has been doing a lot of good to MSIL and hence, the popular car maker decided against replacing it with the latest generation. The latest development with the Alto, nay, the AStar is that Suzuki has facelifted the car for the Chinese domestic market. The refreshed A-Star gets a revised front fascia with a new set of headlamps, fog lamps, grille and the front bumper. At the rear, the car gets a new design motif and LED treatment for the tail lamps. Power option for the car remains to be the same 1 Litre, three pot K-Series motor that produces a good 67 Bhp and offers a peppy performance. The sighting also means that the AStar in Indian market might be close to getting a mid life facelift to inject some freshness in to the fast ageing car. While the AStar isn’t too popular in our car market, the latest generation of Alto has been doing good numbers in various international countries. The car is also known as the Suzuki Celerio and the Nissan Pixo in some car markets abroad. We feel that a price cut and a facelift might work wonders for the AStar in our market.
