-Rival to the Renault Kwid
-Expected to get 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine
The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso has been leaked ahead of its official launch later this year. This will be Maruti Suzuki’s answer to the likes of the Renault Kwid. The single image reveals a pseudo SUV design with noticeable Maruti Suzuki elements.
The silhouette is very similar to that of the current Wagon R but with the addition of flared wheel arches, high ground clearance, body coloured mirrors and a grille design similar to that of the Vitara Brezza. Also visible are the large headlamps as well as strip like fog lamps at the edge of the front bumper.
The S-Presso is expected to be offered only with Maruti Suzuki’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that produces
68bhp/90Nm and with either a five-speed manual or a five-speed AMT. it will be the third model to make use of this 1.0-litre engine and will take on the likes of the Renault Kwid, Datsun Redigo, Tata Tiago as well as Maruti’s own Celerio and the Wagon R.
