Smile SPIED: Maruti Testing Its A-Star Platform For Their New Hatch!

Quote:
Maruti Suzuki has spoken about developing a diesel engine for its mini segment, which includes the Alto, A-Star and Wagon R. But there has been no visible action from the company so far, so we didn’t know what is happening. The new international Alto, which is the A-Star in India is now about to complete its life-cycle and we can expect Suzuki to showcase the new concept vehicle in the upcoming Auto Expo.

This means the company could be testing its new vehicle on the A-Star body, or it is testing the same platform to check the sustainability with the harshness and vibration of its new oil burner that the company is working on.

One of our readers Jaspreet Dua spotted a European spec Suzuki Alto (known as the A-Star to us) with temporary number plate that too a white one on the streets of Delhi. Some of our fellow reporters from other websites have also spotted the Nissan Pixel being tested.

I can spot a rear wash wipe as something extra on this test mule. It is missing on the Indian A-star. But am sure they would not be testing for wash-wipe alone. There could be something big underneath not visible in the picture.

Mod Note : News item is too speculative. Thread closed until more concrete information is available.

Thanks
