Pros : Interesting looks, great comfort, smooth drive

Cons : Smaller leg room and head room

I bought a Maruti A Star a few months back and was really excited to share my experience with everyone as I am happy with my purchase. Within my budget of 4-5 Lakhs I had narrowed down to Chevrolet Beat, Chevrolet Spark, Maruti Wagon R and Maruti A Star. There is no doubt that Chevrolet was offering a lot of freebies and offers on the purchase of Beat and Spark, but due to the low resale value of Chevrolet cars I zeroed down to Maruti A Star. There is no denying the fact that one of the initial aspect of the car that Indians get attracted to is the department of looks and design. Maruti A Star according to me provides the most attractive looks from exteriors. The looks are very contemporary, sporty, trendy yet classy and elegant. The only area of concern for me was the limited leg room in the car, which when compared to its competitors like Hyundai i10 is pretty less. The pick-up and acceleration of the car is good. Indeed, the car is really provides a comfort drive in the crowded city areas. The car has been designed to suit the requirements of any average Indian household. I just wish that the designers should have the made the car more spacious in terms of the leg room, head room and the boot space. The overall satisfaction level from the car is really great and it is a good buying decision for any Indian family.

    Hi ! I am the owner of the A-Star VXI from chandigarh and i can say that my experience with A-star is extra-ordinary. This is the perfect car for stylish people. Few days back i was very much confused between BEAT, FIGO , SPARK

    Astar is a good car If we consider legroom area is small yes but did you notice the sits of Astar its wide and good thy support which in long drive or sitting long time in traffic is important, we can get relaxation. This is there in Astar, even comparing Waganor-sits are not much supporting i.e thy support which even having good legroom area you may feel uncomfortable sitting long in car

    Day before yesterday, i purchased A star after reading lot reviews and test driving other cars like i 10, Wagon r, spark etc. I personally found this car way ahead of its competitors in appearance and performance. i am happy and satisfied that i have made right choice. I suggest to all proposed buyers to definitely give a try to A star it will not let you down.

    Dear Capt.Ram Krishan Sharma, Please buy Maruthi Ritz for leg room. It gives atleast 16.5 kmpl in cities and 18.5 in long drive. it is the best car from maruthi. 5 people can sit and the width of car is around 1650 mm. cheers, bokka lambodaram
