The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso might not be an ‘SUV’ as what its parent carmaker is marketing. However, the S-Presso, with its high-stance and crossover-ish looks has appealed to a lot of first-time budget-oriented car buyers. There is no denying the fact that the design of the S-Presso is quirky at its best, thus making it a love-it-or-hate-it kind of affair. Here’s a digital image of the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, which can just be a facelift which people are demanding out of it.
This rendering, prepared by digital artist SRK Designs, is a fresh take on the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, which made its debut in India almost three years ago. The digital rendering, based on the standard design of the S-Presso, gets visual tweaks for the front and side profiles, making it look sharper and in line with the current design trends seen in modern-day SUVs. For an easier understanding of this digital rendering, we are going to call it a ‘supposed facelift’ of the S-Presso.

At the front, this supposed facelift of the Maruti Suzuki gets a tweaked front fascia, comprising of a new sleeker horizontal line across its width. This line accommodates a new revised front grille with wide U-shaped elements with a Suzuki logo in the middle, which make it look inspired by the all-new Brezza. The corners of this wide fascia are occupied by sleek and edgy-looking horizontal strips of daytime running LEDs, much like those in its direct rival, the Renault Kwid.
There are more significant changes in the lower part of the front profile. The headlamps are now repositioned in the corners of the lower bumper, much like in modern-era SUVs like Tata Harrier and MG Hector.
These square-shaped headlamps are all-halogen units incorporated within T-shaped black cladding. The air dam on the front bumper also looks redesigned, and in the process has grown in size, while getting a grown-up silver skid plate in the middle. The lower corners of the front bumper also get additional black cladding parts.
There are a few significant visual tweaks on the side profile of this supposed facelift of the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso. The A and C pillars, outside rear view mirrors and roof of the S-Presso, are finished in a theme of gloss black, giving it a floating roof effect, which has become common in modern cars which offer dual-tone paint schemes. The car also gets rounded black cladding over the wheel arches, side body cladding on the lower part of door panels and 6-spoke machined alloy wheels.
While Maruti Suzuki hasn’t confirmed any update for the S-Presso soon, this digital rendering might just serve as the perfect update to make the S-Presso’s design edgier with wider acceptance among the public.
