A-STAR IS BORN
Suzuki to Show Concept in New Delhi Auto Expo 2008


Suzuki

Following the launch of its acclaimed fourth world strategic model, the Splash, at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, Suzuki is developing the fifth exciting model in its strategy. It will be showing some of the forthcoming model design themes at Auto Expo 2008 in New Delhi in the form of the Concept A-Star.

The forthcoming production model is an A-segment five-door hatchback reflecting a focus on world-class environmental compatibility and comfort. It will have a newly developed Euro 5-compliant 1.0-litre aluminum petrol engine with CO2 emissions lower than those of European competitors (target: lower than 109g/km). And like the alreadylaunched Suzuki world strategic models, it will prove that sporty and exciting performance can be enjoyed together with outstanding fuel economy.

Suzuki efforts have greatly contributed to the Indian motor industry development and have earned Suzuki more than 50% share of the burgeoning Indian market for passenger cars. The production model that inherits some of the design themes of the Concept A-Star will be manufactured at Maruti Suzuki India Manesar plant, to be marketed mainly in Europe and other countries including India.

The start of production is scheduled in October 2008. Substantial production for Europe is targeted to start in December 2008, followed by expansion to other markets around the world.
