Maruti Suzuki is India’s larges car manufacturer. They have a variety of products in the line up. One such product that Maruti Suzuki launched back in 2019 was the S-Presso hatchback. Maruti Suzuki calls this small hatchback ‘Micro SUV’ for its looks. The S-Presso was introduced in the market to competes with cars like Renault Kwid, Datsun Red-go in the segment. Maruti has designed S-Presso in a way that it looks like an SUV. We have seen several modified examples of S-Presso from different parts of the country and here we have render image that imagines S-Presso as a small beach SUV.
The render images has been shared by alpha_renders on their Instagram page. The artist has actually made several modifications or changes to the stock S-Presso to make it look like an SUV. Starting with the front, the front grille on this S-Presso remains stock but, it now gets gloss black treatment. The headlamps have been smoked out and that gives it a distinct look at the front.
The bumper remains the same as original and it also comes with the LED DRLs on it. The hatchback is painted in white shade and the black plastic parts on the lower part of the car gives it a rugged look. As this is imagined as an SUV that is mostly used on sandy beaches, the artist has given a snorkel for better air intake and a radio antenna is also seen. Coming to the side profile, you would notice that this S-Presso sits a lot more higher than the stock version. The ground clearance on this hatchback has been slightly increased and a foot board has also been given for easy ingress and egress.
Maruti Suzuki S-Presso comes with steel rims and that has been replaced for blacked out aftermarket alloy wheels. The wheels are wrapped in chunky looking All-Terrain tyres. The artist has included disc brakes on all four wheels. On the roof, the artist has included a luggage rack or roof carrier which holds a canoe and couple of other boxes. As we move to the rear, we see a spare wheel mounted on the tail gate. By adding this, the SUV look of the S-Presso is completed. The tail lights on the S-Presso have also been smoked. A gloss black spoiler is also seen on the roof of the hatchback.
Maruti Suzuki offers S-Presso as a front wheel drive hatchback or micros SUV but, looking at the render image, we feel that the artist has imagined it as 4×4 SUV. Overall, the design and the concept of imagining S-Presso as a4x4 micro SUV is quite good and artist has also done a great job with the digital render. Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is a small hatchback that is available with variety of customisation options from Maruti itself. Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is powered by a 1.0 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 68 Ps and 90 Nm of peak torque. A CNG fuel option of this hatchback is also available in the market. S-Presso is available with both manual and AMT gearbox options. CNG version get manual transmission only.
