Indian-built Suzuki under 109 g/km for 2008

Meet the Concept A-Star, the latest entry from Suzuki which will be introduced at the Auto Expo 2008 in New Dehli, India. The model, which was developed and will be produced by Maruti, Suzuki's partner in India, is set for export to European markets as well the Indian market.

Besides the styiling, which I quite like for such a small car, the A-Star promises to beat Europe's current gasoline fuel-misers (with the exception of hybrids): the Peugeot 107/Citroën C1/Toyota Aygo triad. Suzuki is developing a brand-new 1.0 liter engine with promised emissions under 109 CO2 g/km. No diesel is expected to be installed in this vehicle, which will surely hurt sales in a significant way, but the car will allow British buyers to pay the cheapest tax rate possible (£35).
