The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso marks the debut of the first car in the Indo-Japanese carmaker's 'Mini SUV' segment. It becomes the direct rival for the Renault Kwid, which upon its launch was actually the first SUV-inspired hatchback to have entered this segment. Now that the S-Presso is launched, take a look at its picture gallery to know all its details.
The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is based on the Future-S concept and boasts of the SUV-inspired design that was first shown at the Auto Expo; namely, a tall hood, a tall-boy stance, beefy cladding and more.
It's distinct SUV character comes to the fore thanks to bold design elements like the tough looks, big halogen headlamps, a muscular bumper, an aggressive grille, cladding and tall proportions.
What's more, it has an upright stance and boxy silhouette to keep the SUV proportions intact. Even at the rear, the S-Presso boasts of a big boot-lid and squarish tail lamps.
Inside the cabin too, the design and layout is fresh with a centre console inspired by tough sports watches. There are body colour accents on the dashboard.
Maruti Suzuki is also offering their seven-inch Smartplay studio touchscreen infotainment system in the top-end variant of the car.
The S-Presso comes in four trims - standard, Lxi, Vxi, Vxi+. All of them boast of safety features like airbags, ABS and reverse parking sensors as standard.
Meanwhile, the entry-level Maruti Suzuki S-Presso gets blacked out bumpers, ORVMs and door handles instead of the body-coloured ones.
There's only one engine option - a 998 cc, three-cylinder petrol engine, which is BS-VI compliant and produces 67bhp of power and 90Nm of torque.
Transmission duties are handled by a five-speed manual gearbox and an optional Maruti's AGS (Auto Gear Shift) automated manual transmission (AMT) unit.
The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is a completely made-in-India product and it will be exported to South America, Africa and Asia as well.
