Next Generation Maruti A Star spied in India

2014 Maruti A Star to debut 800cc diesel engine in India.

The next generation Maruti A Star has been spied testing in Gurgaon India. The new Maruti A Star codename ‘YL7’ had already been spied in southern Europe some time ago. Thanks to Vipin of for bringing us the spy photo.

The ‘YL7’ is Suzuki’s global model likely to replace A Star and Ritz. Since Ritz is doing well in India, Maruti Suzuki might keep the Ritz along with the new A Star. Possibly the company had intensions to replace the existing A Star and Estilo with the ‘YL7’ model and hence stopped the production of Estilo. The sales of A Star is not too good and don’t be surprised to hear about axing A Star very soon.

The big thing about next generation A-Star/’YL7’ is that Maruti’s might bring in the 800cc 2 cylinder diesel engine with this model. Currently development of the small 800cc engine is going on and according to sources company aims at achieving record breaking fuel efficiency of 30 Kmpl.

The next generation A Star will make its appearance at the Auto Expo 2014 held in January 2014 at New Delhi.
