The Maruti S-Presso is scheduled to launch on 30th September at a price between Rs. 4-5 lakhs.
The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso has been spied undisguised and this single picture puts a lot into perspective. The small car is scheduled for a launch on 30th September and will be available in 4 variants.
The Maruti S-Presso carries the upright shape of the Future S concept model showcased at Auto Expo 2018 but leaves a lot of the futuristic bits behind. It gets a sharper, more angular front end with a high bonnet line. The headlights merge into the grille which has chrome elements inspired from its bigger sibling, the Vitara Brezza. Following its SUV-inspired theme, the S-Presso gets a black front and rear bumper along with black body claddings at the side.
The 2020 Maruti S-Presso gets blacked-out B-pillar and bulged front wheel arches, turn indicators mounted on the front fenders and flap-type door handles. The mini-SUV stands tall offering 180 mm of ground clearance but the steel wheels look quite basic.
In terms of dimensions, the S-Presso measuring 3565 mm doesn’t match up to Renault Kwid’s length (3679 mm) and wheelbase (2422 mm). However, the mini-SUV is 20 mm longer than the Alto K10 and has a 20 mm longer wheelbase too. With a height of 1564 mm, the S-Presso is taller than the Alto K10 (1475 mm) and the Kwid (1478 mm).
The fuel tank of the Maruti S-Presso is 27-litres, which is on par with the Kwid’s 28-litres. But higher variants of the S-Presso will ride on 14-inch wheels wrapped with 165/70-section tyres. Whereas, the Kwid comes with smaller 13-inch wheels wrapped with 155/80-section tyres.
While the exterior does not retain a lot from the Future S concept, expect the interior to follow the dark grey interior theme and colour-coordinated elements seen on it. The dashboard is likely to get a circular enclosure housing a digital speedometer and the touchscreen infotainment system.
The 2020 Maruti S-Presso is expected to offer a single BS6 compliant version of the brand’s 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder K10 petrol engine. The BS4 alternative of this same engine churns 68 PS and 90 Nm of torque. The car will be available with a 5-speed manual as well as with an AMT option. The Maruti S-Presso will be sold via the Arena showrooms at an expected price range of Rs. 4-5 lakhs.
