am not a car freak but automatic is the way to go these days in traffic jams... gear shifting is fast dont get tired... i do not know abt a star but as far as i know the average is also good ...

Answer by Avnish Shastry 09 September 2010

A Star Manual transmission gives around 17-18 km/lit. Can assume a drop of 1-2 km/lit in automatic version. Yes backside is a bit tight. You must also be preared to assume that there will be no luggage space at the back (only briefcases can be accommodated- not even small suitcases/strolley)

Expert`s comment:

Astar though made quite lesser sales due to narrow leg space for rear seat and lesser luggage space.Its otherwise a reliable car with good mileage and power. Now its available with AT version.The main competitor for Astar AT version is the Hyundai i10 which costs bit more. In overall Hyundai i10 AT version seems to be better option.Recommended to test drive both.

I bought an i10 automatic in March this year. I did a lot of research before buying the same. Believe me, I made d right choice. It is just fantastic to drive this car. It has beautifull interiors, a lot of leg romm both in d front and rear as well as a lot of boot space too. Fuel average is around 10-11 with AC in Delh. I bet A star won't give more than this with AC in Delhi's traffic.Plus it does'nt have enough leg room at the rear and a very small boot. I think that comfort comes before anything and everytghing. So don't luk at the average part and go in for i10 automatic.
