Man more than any thing, when will maruti learn? they need to give us better suspension setups!

all they do is throw in the weak and cheaper suspension all the time and ADD HIGH Profile tyres to compensate. I find that to be one of the bad aspects of a typical maruthi car!

this was a HUGE LET DOWN on swift too, and now they continue the same saga for all their new models its really sad.

at least for their newer cars i sincerely hope they put in better suspension setups that can do with a little low profile at least as low as 60 profile height if not less and retain the same comfort as a stock profile tyre.

GUYS!!! NEWS hot from the Oven!!
MSIL is holding a conferance for the auto journalists at a premium hotel in Navi Mumbai. as i type right now. I got a tip off and went straight to the place to try and catch a glimpse of the car. The car looks fab!, Was a bit disappointed by the overall size of the car its slightly bigger than i10 but definately smaller than i20,
The security guys did not allow me near the car but, somehow later managed to click some pics in a hurry which i would be posting by today evening!!
it has lxi, vxi, zxi, ldi, and vdi but no ZDI AGAIN.
Its the first car to be launced in India with Bharat stage IV, so expect it to be pricey , MSIL salesman was not ready to quote any prices.
stick on to this for the pics!

I thinks it will priced more than a SWIFT. If so the fate of i20 will be shared by Ritz at least in the Patrol Variant.

Waiting for the real pics buddy.

I think Maruti should change the Music player for each model or atleast different segments. They give the same player from Vitara to Astar.

Awesome pictures...Thanks from everyone on TBHP!!
The boot space is indeed small and will be an issue if you have to leave anybody at the airport. Don't care much for the mole on the dash they call a speedo (trying to copy the mini) or the colour co-ordinated dash.
I think you did a great job with the photos inspite of your phone cam!!

Hi schitre05. Good job mate. Guess we people(T-Bhpians) cannot wait for the official display of new launches by the company people and thus risk our lives for such scoops. BTW nice looking car. Looks well planted and the rubbers don't look undersized too. I noticed one more thing, I think this will be the first car in our country to come with a factory fitted perfume as a standard fitment coz i saw it in all cars.HE he he he, now that's going to be some change. The boot looks ridiculously small though.

What an ugly car! From the way the roof at the rear tapers down, it looks like the first generation Hyundai Atoz. It also looks like it was banged from front and rear, looks so unfinished.

One of us should go to a Maruti showroom and ask about the car. I am sure salespeople will give the standard Maruti sales line of "There is a 6 month waiting period for the car, sir."

perfume ? Where ? You don't mean the RPM meter do you ?

@amit : +1 to that. Maybe the MSIL guys wanted t make the A-Star look better.

i dont think so. Its not a Lexus SC70 going Toyota Soarer.

He he he he he. It's time for you to look at the photographs again my friend. I knew someone would say this. Just check the left corner of the dash and vola... you'll see a first in the industry. BTW I'm not a fan of such stick out RPM meter's and prefer the conventional ones.

Don't you guys feel that it would have been better if the rpm meter was placed on ther right of the driver rather then left as it is now?
