Maruti Suzuki had recently revealed a sketch of the upcoming S-Presso which was based on the Future S Concept shown by the company during the Auto Expo 2018. Maruti Suzuki prefers to call it a mini-SUV and say that the name of the car has been inspired from the coffee drink, Espresso. It surely will cater to the active and energetic youth of today.

Seeing the success of the Renault Kwid, which is another compact car with SUV-like design, Maruti Suzuki have decided to launch the S-Presso in the same segment hoping to disrupt the other entry-level offerings. Powering the new S-Presso will be a BS-VI ready, K10B, 1.0-litre petrol engine that delivers 68 hp at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 90 Nm, while delivering a fuel efficiency of 21.7 km/l. The engine will come paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or an AMT.

Some leaked brochures suggest that the S-Presso will be offered in six variants that include STD, LXi, VXi, VXi+, VXi AGS, and the VXi+ AGS. The top-end VXi variants feature body-coloured ORVMs and door handles, steering-mounted audio controls, a 7.0-inch SmartPlay Studio infotainment system with voice recognition and a 12-volt accessory socket.

The S-Presso will get small 13-inch wheels on the lower variants, while higher grades will comes with 14-inch wheels. Safety features on the car include ABS, driver-side airbag, rear parking sensors, seat belt reminders and a speed alert system as standard. We sure hope Maruti Suzuki also brings the option of having more airbags at least in the top-end variant.

I am happy to share that S-PRESSO joins our BS6 range, as the 8th vehicle compliant with new emission norms. We are confident that S-PRESSO will bring excitement in its segment, attracting the ever evolving young customer.”
