No Beige interiors in this too. Man why Maruti didn't like giving Beige in interiors.

I dont understand why maruti isnt providing the rear screen wipe and wash even in the topend version. Its a good safety feature during the rains.

The car with Stickers on it looks to be Demo car. A-star URL can be read on the rare side and the phone number on the front.

The windows on the rear doors are not well designed- meant to partly suffocate rear seat occupants. Why the swing upward in the lower part of the rear quarter glass? It reduces the green area.

thanks sid and horsepower, for the brochure and the pics. A friend called asking for details on the A-Star, I did a search on tbhp and sent him the link to this thread. And it was useful, thanks!
neat colors to choose from too, looks like a good competitor to the i10

Niceee scoop with the brochure & the pics

Car doesn't look that bad in real life, & the 155/80R13 tires are cool !

Should be able to upsize to 15" rims easily - hmmm !

Again MSIL is fooling the INdian Customer, another new offereing for India where as a replacement for the Alto worldwide.

ANyways, not a bad vehcile but Seriously speaking that Mini-Styled Tacho looks a bit funky and the interior not as with par with the i10. Not because of the beiege interiors but overall the interior looks too much crowded and messy to me. Not a clean design as the i10, i personally dont own i10 and not even plan to buy one but the interior part scores way more over this new AStar.
