Maruti Suzuki’s latest offering A-Star is out today in India. I am very excited about this car. The official site of the car at www.marutisuzukiastar.com is terribly slow. May be everybody is rushing to the site to know more about this gorgeous looking car! (BTW the site is developed in .Net with heavy dosage of Flash by BCWebwise) What makes A-Star extra special is that it is fully designed in India – first for Suzuki of Japan.
I have made up my mind as to which car I am going to get when I upgrade from my M800 in about a year! :)
I got hold of a video of the A-Star.
The car has been launched in three versions – Lxi, Vxi and Zxi. Ex showroom prices in Delhi are Rs. 3,46,775 for Lxi, Rs. 3,74,000 for Vxi and Rs. 4,11,775 for Zxi. All the variants have stuff like body coloured bumpers, Air Conditioner and Power Steering which usually comes only in the higher versions in other cars of the class. Vxi and Zxi come with additional features like power windows, built in speakers etc and Zxi has air bags too.
