Maruti Suzuki A-STAR Facelift Launched in China!

Recommended Posts


Recently, we'd seen test-runs of new fluidic I10 & now It's rival is ready to feight against it! The facelifted Alto (known as the A-star in India) has finally made its official debut at the Chengdu Auto Show in China.

The new design now makes the cute looking front very edgy and mature. The round and bubbly headlamps are replaced by an elongated and much sharper ones. The headlamps are joined with a sleek looking front grill that gets a chrome bar with the “S” logo sitting proudly on top.

The bumpers have also gone under the knife and look much better with this design. The fog lamp enclosure too gets some curves and cuts and gives the car a beef upped look. The centre bumper grill is inline with the upper grill’s slope and together they both lend the trapezoidal appearance to the whole front grill area.

The rear too gets to see some changes in the bumper area, which now comes in two tone. This reduces the visual bulk that the older design had and also makes the car look a bit sporty. The tail-lamps too have been revamped and add to the freshness of the looks. That reverse parking lights in tail-lamp is similar wth one in Ford Fiesta Classic & Skoda Rapid.

The interior is said to be updated, although the changes are barely noticeable. I think the changes are limited to the upholstery and the shade of the plastics.

The price for this facelifted version in China starts from 39900 yuan (roughly Rs. 3.5 Lakhs) and goes upto 64300 yuan (roughly Rs. 5.6 lakhs).

It will be powered by a 1Litre, 3 cylinder gasoline engine that produces 71 hp and 92Nm of torque. All this power can be transmitted to the front wheels either through a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gear box.

The main cause of rejection for A-STAR was It's ugly looks & This new facelift may help to improve the sells & stand as a strong Competitor against I10.
