karan,

please ask him to do some basic math.
savings on spark LS versus higher investment in i10 and resale values 3 years down the line. Please understand that current prices are quite rock bottom and it'd take a fire sale to reduce prices reasonably (say more than 10%) below what it is now. I'd love it if someone can do the economics and prove me wrong but I think not

Wait for A-star. It will be launched near diwali, and if after the launch he finds A-star not suitable for him, he can still go for i10.

As wifey is little inclined towards swift, she is currently using a santro, so now wants a change. By the way Swift in ur avtaar looks nice as well as in the gallery.
Well i just bought the Swift Vxi few months back. It did fit my bill & quite happy with it. VFM ! The one in the avtaar is in some sunlight copper color i think. I have the Solid bright red. All the best for your purchase.


P.S : Phamilyman , thanks again . I shall recommend my friend the Spark again.

Thanks everyone for your valuable suggestions!

JK, The purchase has been postponed with the present situation of economy.
I dont think A Star impressed him much. Mostly i10.

If its purely between A-Star and i10. IMO, its a no-brainer. It's got to be an i10 1.2 Kappa

Definitely. And even if he wants the A-Star he's going to have to wait for a long long time..

Hello,

The A Star and i10 are both modern hatches with great engineering... one needs to check the new star for its new engine, handling etc(Suzukis small hatches must be good as always) but then i10 is now a proven unit, more powerful and quite a plush ride as well for the size of the car.... Swift Lxi is a great contender albeit stripped one at all the features... its power and handling being the best in class as far as hatchbacks are concerned... I think on the lower budget- A Star with all the loaded features or Swift basic and Higher budget- i10, Swift Diesel... All the best in selection...

Dude, A-star will be good drivers car. Its good for both city and highway. I rate A-star driver comfort better than swift, vista, i10, or any such small car. (not palio). A-star has lots of engineering into it. Less roll, good mileage, ergonomics, road gripping.


I10, looks like a car for professionals. Not much of engineering into it. But good plastics and build quality. The car does not feel stable. The driver would not feel as comfortable in i10 as in a-star.
