Maruti Suzuki To Launch S-Presso On September 30

  • Sep 20, 2019

India’s largest carmaker by volumes, Maruti Suzuki, is all set to introduce the S-Presso compact hatchback on September 30. The S-Presso will be sold through the company’s Arena dealership chain alongside cars like WagonR, Alto, and others. Maruti Suzuki is yet to confirm when it will open bookings for the new hatchback. The S-Presso is expected to be offered in the STD, LXI, VXI and VXI+ models, like the Alto K10, with ex-showroom prices starting at around ₹3.5 lakh.

The S-Presso is likely to borrow the powertrain from the Alto K10. The latter is hauled by a 3.0-cylinder, 1.0-litre K10B petrol motor producing 68PS maximum power and 90Nm peak torque. The current engine is of BS-IV standard and returns an Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) certified mileage of 24.07kmpl. The fuel economy is expected to change if the S-Presso is fitted with a BS-VI 800cc petrol engine, like the Alto 800, which was upgraded in April. The S-Presso will have a standard 5-speed manual gearbox with a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) available as an option.

Leaked images of the S-Presso have revealed flared wheel arches to forge a beefier look. The car offers a higher ground clearance while its grille elements are borrowed from the Vitara Brezza compact sports utility vehicle (SUV). The entry-level trim of the S-Presso may get steel wheels, standard outside rearview mirrors (OVRMs), and body-coloured B-pillars. The top-level model will get a Bluetooth-based infotainment unit and a central locking system.

The S-Presso’s safety equipment will include dual front airbags, an Antilock braking system (ABS), front seatbelts with pretensioners, a speed alert system, load limiters, and reminder, and rear parking sensors as standard features. The car, compared to the Renault Kwid, will be slightly narrower and smaller in dimension.

The S-Presso will lock horns with the top-end Datsun redi-GO in the compact hatchback segment.
