Pros : Good mileage, low maintainence


Look and Style: In terms of looks I feel the car has a very distinct design that is appreciated by many and disliked by many as well. The looks of the car are pretty trendy and unique in a certain way. I personally loved the looks of the car but have met many people who have hated the same. I think this is a very subjective thing and all I can say is that I like the way the car is shaped and designed. Comfort: I found A Star very comfortable, the leg room and head room is pretty descent. The comfort level that the car offers can be placed somewhere between Maruti Alto and Hyundai i10 as it is more comfort to drive than Maruti Alto, but not as comfortable as Hyundai i10.  Pickup: The K Series petrol engine used in the car is the same that powers Maruti Wagon R and is a good performer on road. The engine has a 3 cylinder unit which adds to the efficiency of the car in terms of its performance.  Mileage: I have heard the the car delivers  a good mileage of around 15-16 kmpl in city areas, which is really nice. The engine that powers a car becomes the main attraction factor while buying and this works as an added advantage in case of A Star.  Best Features: Some of the best features of the car is certainly its performance, which is good. The people who own it have never really reported any drastically major problems, which is nice. I feel the looks of the car very attractive but that cannot be generalized as I told that there are many people disliking it as well. The car comes from Maruti Suzuki, which makes the after sales service an easy outlet as any where one goes, the car can be repaired and the maintainence is not really an issue.  Needs to improve: I feel that the build quality as in other  Maruti Car can be improved on by the company as the sort of plastics used are not really great and bring down the net worth of the car. However it has been proved time and again that the durability of the car is superb and there are no issues on that front. Overall Experience: The Overall experience for me has been pretty good. I am not an owner of the car, but I have been in A Star a number of times and my brother owns it. Having driven the car for atleast 20-30 times I had enough of reasons to write this review. I hope the information I have provided helps someone looking out to buy an A Star.

    ABS is mostly useful if you driving at high speeds, you can very well manage without ABS on the A Star, go for the LXi A Star as decided its a wise choice. Thanks, CarDekho Team
