Maruti Suzuki A-Star

     The compact A-star with its buzzy and willing motor, easy handling and agility is a great city car

    The nicest part about the A-star is the manner in which it rides and handles. Taking advantage of the stiffer chassis, wide track and high profile tyres, Maruti seems to have found the ideal setup. Ride quality though is not pillow-soft as some stiffness is present. It is quite comfortable even though there are some sharp vertical movements.Once you are traveling faster than jogging speeds, the A-star’s superior body control is more noticeable aiding the comfort as you’re not bounced around in the least.

    Like the Swift, the A-star is a car that genuinely is fun to drive. The steering has  a bit of a dead zone in the straight ahead, but once you push the car harder and load up the suspension the A-star really displays poise, balance and confidence rarely found in a car of this class. With its willing top-end performance, confidence-inspiring brake pedal and eagerness to tackle corners, the A-star feels a special little car. Shame about the lack of bite from the narrow 155 tyres though as the car soon runs out of grip.
