The dashboard features a centrally-mounted digital speedometer

Interiors – The S-Presso’s cabin is one of my favourite things about the car, the price and it’s BS6-compliance being the other two. The Mini Cooper inspired instrument cluster surrounds Maruti’s 7-inch SmartPlay infotainment system. It’s an interesting take and definitely amps up the dashboard. It also gets Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and navigation in a very easy to use interface. The instrument cluster is placed centrally, instead of being traditionally positioned behind the steering wheel. It gets a large digital speedometer but no tachometer.

The dashboard gets basic controls all around

The front seats are comfortable and offer good lumbar support. There is enough legroom and knee room keeping in mind its compact size. Though the under-thigh support is average, the headroom is abundant, thanks to its tall-boy stance. There’s even some side bolstering to keep the passengers in place. Having said that, the seats are a little on the stiffer side and get non-adjustable headrests.

3 people at the rear will be a very tight fit

The seats are comfortable and the cabin offers great legroom but the under-thigh support could’ve been better

The second row feels roomy due to good headroom but the shoulder room will isn’t ideal for three people sitting abreast. The under-thigh support could have been better but hey, the buyer’s on a budget right.

The boot isn’t too big but enough to carry a weekend’s luggage

The boot space is quite capacious at 270-litres and there are numerous storage areas in the cabin. At the front, there is a sizeable glovebox, cubby holes on the front and rear doors and one at the end of the gearbox for the rear passengers. But even after all that buzz, there are no power windows for the rear passengers even in the top variant.
