The A-Star is in a league of its own. MSIL introduced it as a mini hot hatch and the A-Star does live up to being just that. Powered by a 1.0 liter K series petrol engine, the A-Star is peppy, fun to drive and handles rather well. It's a little cramped on the rear bench, but being a size smaller than its larger hatch siblings, this is understandable. The design is fresh and the bug eye headlights have won hearts. Designed for the young at heart, the A-Star is the ideal city car for its fast, nimble and easily fits into just about any parking spot.
Both cars being trend setters in their own right, the Hyundai i10 in its new avatar is now much more than a great urban family car, while MSIL's A-Star continues to be one of the safest and smartest ones around
