EXTERIORS

As said earlier, the car is really beautifully sculptured. The distinct creases and lines which runs through out the side,give’s  the car a really aggressive but user friendly feel . From outside , the car does seem really compact .Pull handle’s have been added to the doors, to give a premium feel .From the side’s however , the biggest eye catcher’s are the Alloy’s. The concept uses 185/55 R16 tires , with a really funky inward curling alloys . Two color’s have been showcased on the concepts , energy yellow and panoramic blue .

On the front runs a twin ,split chrome grilles , which protrudes in to the projector headlamp’s. However’ whether the design would be available in the production model is yet to be seen. The LED turn indicators completes the beautiful front portion of the A:Wind. The Rear portion has a minimalistic touch to it . The rear windscreen is really wide and should provide a great view .The rear compliments nicely with the overall design of the car.

The Interiors of the A:Wind gets a dual tone color scheme . Most of the design features have been lifted straight out of its elder siblings ,the Swift and the Ritz . The A:Wind is stated to be much more spacious than the A-Star , signifying that the ‘crammed rear’ problem is a thing of the past. Again the Interior’s seem’s to compliment the exterior really beautifully.

VERDICT

The concept sure looks beautiful and if the actual production car is anything like the concept , we have good new’s for Maruti Suzuki . The car is worth the wait . It is expected to be showcased at the 2014 Indian Autoshow 2014 . Initially it will be launched in Thailand in 2014. Indian launch is expected to be 1-2 month after that.
