To clear your doubts first, Maruti A Star is also known as Suzuki Alto in some parts of the world. Specifically, Maruti had slightly tweaked the A Star for UK market and is selling there with model plate ‘Nissan Pixo’ for a price tag of 5,995 pounds (INR 5.46 lakhs). The thing that had annoyed us the most, why that same car is seen doing test rounds in India when he has the bespoken model plate in our local specific version.
Lest, the car that one can see in this spied image is caught without any camouflage, so one can confirm it seamlessly without any second thought. Moreover, the number plate that is blurred in the spy shot is said to be of the Haryana Trade Certificate, and as per the Indian regulations one don’t needs temporary number plate for exporting a car out of the India. Hence, as a result the car is definitely of Indian owned bay.
Nissan logo of the Pixo is blackened, and the vehicle too got a rear wiper which the India specific A Star top end models are done without it. Rear is also bestowed with the fixed ‘butterfly’ type window. Well, at the front, headlamps seem drawn from the Ritz (internationally known as Splash) but the bumpers are clued from the A Star itself, clichéd differently with additional plastic moldings.
As per the rumors, Suzuki A Star/Alto is soon going to get a replacement, expectedly at the Frankfurt Auto Show, but it isn’t alone in the makeover shift, Splash too will be nagged in the same puddle.
