Welcome on board Usman.

Am not sure on the authenticity of your news but still love he BROWN swift seen in the picture.

NOw A Star is caught between devil & deep sea. IMHO Maruti can't touch it. A Star is still a car with Fun to drive attitude and excellent braking,.

So in an enthu's mind it is still living and it will live for ever.

Hi Usman, welcome to our forum

That brown swift is the older version if I am not wrong. But it is still on sale in China with minor modifications. Imagine if Maruti had discontinued the Estilo/Astar and kept selling the old swift and Dzire at a lower price point? Agreed its a dated product but M sure still a lot of people would've bought it isnt it?

The new A-Star looks way better than the current car. Front styling is going the hyundai way though. Lets see when this reaches our shores. a smaller diesel would be an icing on the cake if this happens.

When is it coming ? The tail lights have a nice clear touch to it though the headlights look incomplete , where they meet the front grill.The alloys are also refreshing.

Interiors will also give a better picture of the product , too much i10'ish .

Whats written below the SUZUKI logo in the last pic?

Hi & welcome on the bord!

I have a humble request for Suzuki, please stop this copy-pest engineering & bring out something new & completely Innovative! & stop painting this small cars in such "CUTE" colour, men also have to buy them! & took out that alto badge from new alto 800, as 800 has a lot more respect & attachment to the Indian customer! & rename the upcoming A-Star as Alto & Discountinue both normal alto & alto k10! This will also simplify the things for consumers as well as production & management peoples!

The car shown/featured above is just a chinese face-lift of current A-star/Alto & it addresses the weaknesses of Indian A-star upto very small extent & that's too on the looks front only & rest the shortcomings like Poor rear legroom, headroom & boot space remains. And to iron that weaknesses Suzuki launched the New Alto/A-star(pictured below) in Japan, nearly a year back.

Even this car is spotted many times in India, for testing purposes.

Rest lets see what happens with time & what Maruti Suzuki is cooking for us in their favourite small car segment for us in this wide growing segment, where Korean i10 rules.
