I have to agree with Sahil here. It took me some time to realize that this is A Star and not the I10.

The car seems to be quite wide from the back! - looks like a bigger car.

From the front it seems like slightly wider than the i10 [As one can see the Swift alongside looking wider].

Ankit: The white car between blue and green A-Stars is Swift.

I was most impressed by the high-speed stability and road presence. This car is much better than other maruti siblings and in my opinion is going to outclass Santro and i10 as well.

@deepakgautam:
Excellent job!

The fact that this car was doing good on highway will be definitely a positive point, but frankly I never expected the three cylinder motor to be so good. From your description it looks like the cars were cruising at speeds above 130 kmph. A pleasant surprise from Suzuki.
From the rear, the bumper looks bigger than the rear metal portion of hatch. Reminds me of older Zen.
From the front it looks nice and upto some extent attractive and cute.
The car is quite wide from the picture it seems.

Definitely a great product on hand. I hope it hits the roads on 18 November.
IMHO, this car will hit the sales of Zen Estilo and Wagon R from Maruti stable along with i10 1.1, Santro and Indica petrol.
