India’s largest automaker Maruti Suzuki is currently working on a new small hatchback, the S-Presso, Scheduled to be launched on the 30th of September, the S-Presso is the production version of the Future-S Concept that was earlier shown at the Delhi Auto Expo. The micro-SUV like stance of the car suggests that it is aimed squarely at the Renault Kwid. Though the car has been spied on numerous occasions, there are no clear pictures of the car without camouflage to date. In its final stages of development, several details about the upcoming car are already out but to get you an idea of how the car could look like, here is a render of the car that shows the possible design of the S-Presso. Let’s now check out the video below by Yogi Sejwal Design that shows how this render was created.
The render here shows quite a modern and stylish take on the S-Presso. The production-spec model may look a bit different but this render gives one a glimpse of how the design could turn out to be. On the front, this one gets a sleek grille which goes all the way around the headlamps. The bonnet is quite high up while the bumper design is also quite muscular, which makes the front end look pretty bold. Though this render shows stylish alloy wheels and low profile tires, the production-spec unit will not get them to maintain the pricing.
The side profile carries a tall boy look that is seen on other Maruti cars like the WagonR and Ignis. Towards the rear, the same tall stance continues with sleek horizontally placed tail-lights and a silver diffuser. All across the car, black cladding has been plastered on the lower end to give the vehicle a more rugged appeal. According to the information leaked until now about the S-Presso, the hatchback will get a dynamic central control, commanding high seating position, best-in-class ground clearance, enhanced 10 plus safety features and large cabin space.
Maruti Suzuki plans to position the car such so as to aim young professionals, college-going students and people who are looking to buy a stylish car as their first vehicle. For the same, the manufacturer has gone for a bolder and SUV-inspired bold front-end. On the inside, it is expected to get a floating-type touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with Suzuki Smart Play system. Safety features include dual airbags, ABS+EBD, rear parking sensors, speed alerts, seatbelts and more. The engine details of the S-Presso are not known but it is likely to get two petrol engine options, which will be similar to the Maruti Suzuki WagonR. There will be a 1.0-litre petrol engine while a more powerful version with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. When launched, the S-Presso will rival the likes of Tata Tiago and Renault Kwid among others in the Indian market and will be sold through the Arena dealership network
