Maruti Suzuki will launch the all-new S-Presso in the Indian market on 30th September. The S-Presso will be the production version of the Future-S Concept car, which was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. The all-new S-Presso will take on the likes of Renault Kwid in the market. Earlier, production version pictures of the S-Presso were leaked online showing how the vehicle will look like. Now, new information has been leaked on T-BHP that reveals many more details about the upcoming crossover-hatchback.
The all-new Maruti Suzuki S-Presso will be sold through the Arena dealership network of the brand. It will be available in four trim levels and twelve variants in total. The S-Presso will be offered in the following variants – Std, Lxi, Lxi(O), Vxi, Vxi(O), Vxi+. Vxi AGS, Vxi(O) AGS, Vxi+ AGS. The details of the variants confirm that the S-Presso will get the AMT automatic transmission too. The S-Presso will get a wheelbase base of 2,380mm while it will be 3,665mm long and 1,529mm wide. The lower variants of the S-Presso will offer a 13-inch tyre while the higher variants will get the 14-inch tyres.
It will be the first car from the Maruti Suzuki to get the updated 1.0-litre petrol engine option. In the S-Presso, the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine will be compliant to BS6 emission norms. This is the same engine that powers the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and the WagonR. However, the S-Presso will be the first vehicle to get the BS6 compliant 1.0-litre engine from the brand. According to the leaked details, the engine will produce a maximum power of 67 Bhp. However, the torque figures have not been revealed. This updated engine will also make its way into the vehicles like Alto K10 and the WagonR in the coming future. The S-Presso will be the eighth vehicle from the brand to offer BS6 compliant engine. Currently, vehicles like Maruti Suzuki Swift, Dzire, WagonR 1.2, Ertiga, XL6, Baleno and Alto offer the BS6 compliant engine option in India. Maruti Suzuki earlier revealed that about 70% of petrol vehicles sold by the manufacturer are BS6 compliant, which is a huge number.
Look-wise, the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso looks much like a mini Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. It gets upright look with a sleek grille upfront. The grille is connected to both the headlamps. Also, the car gets heavily flared wheel arches and the body itself gets deep creases to add an intimidating look. The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso will offer a funky cabin that will be designed to attract the youths. Also, it is expected to get a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
