Maruti Suzuki plans to launch the A-Star in the Indian market in October and will start exporting the A-Star from December or January. The car is being tested extensively by Maruti in India and does not look all that impressive. It will be priced between 3-4 lacs which seems quite value and will use the next generation K series engine.
The 1.0 liter K series engine will be Euro IV ready and will have good low end torque. Initially, the car will be exported to Europe and will be sold as the new Alto.
