Maruti S-Presso Detailed In Pics
Take a closer look at Maruti’s Kwid rival and its details
Maruti’s latest offering is a mini cross-hatch with styling to exaggerate its ruggedness and SUV-like stance. The S-Presso has been launched in India and is priced between Rs 3.69 lakh and Rs 4.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Debuting the Heartect K platform in India, the S-Presso will be a global offering that will be exported to other parts of the world such as Latin America, Southern Africa and East Asia.
Let’s take a detailed look at the Maruti S-Presso and what it offers in the gallery below:
The S-Presso has a tall front end with a chunky dual-tone bumper for that rugged SUV-like look. Its grille is similar to that of the Vitara Brezza. The body-coloured part of the bumper features indents to house the LED DRLs which will be offered as an accessory.
The S-Presso also features a boxy, tallboy stance like the WagonR. It not only adds to its SUV stance with the ground clearance and high seating position, it also allows for more space despite its relatively short dimensions. The S-Presso is only 3565 long and upto 1564mm tall when riding on 14-inch steel wheels.
Maruti has continued the excessive use of black cladding for the rear bumper as well, integrating a skid plate design into it. The S-Presso also gets rear deflectors, positioned on the body-coloured rear fender, mimicking the optional LED DRLs setup up front. The tail lamp design is not that stylish but it is certainly different from Maruti offerings at the moment.
The Vitara Brezza-like front grille of the S-Presso will allow for a variety of personalisation options via Maruti accessories. The shapes can be had in different colours or simply feature a silver finish.
The Maruti S-Presso doesn’t get alloy wheels in any trim, but does offer them as an accessory. It also gets wheel covers on the higher variants. The low-spec variants run on 13-inch wheels with 145/80 rubber but the higher variants get 14-inch wheels that wear 165/70 rubber.
The S-Presso is available in six colour options in total, including two brand new colour options: Pearl Starry Blue and Solid Sizzle Orange.
Maruti has opted to give the S-Presso’s cabin a youthful vibe with brightly coloured accents and a distinct dashboard layout. The instrument cluster in the centre is a digital readout. In the top variant, it gets a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (from the WagonR). The controls for the front power windows are positioned below the display. The highlight of this layout is the orange accents encircling these three components on the dash.
The steering wheel with the audio controls is also borrowed from the WagonR and the Ignis. The S-Presso also gets orange accents around the circular air vents. It gets rotary controls for the manual AC.
Maruti has managed to offer plenty of space in the S-Presso’s cabin. However, none of the seats get adjustable headrests and the rear-middle occupant doesn’t get a 3-point seatbelt like all the Maruti cars.
The S-Presso offers 270 litres of luggage space in its boot.
Maruti offers the S-Presso with a 1.0-litre BS6 petrol engine only that produces 68PS of power and 90Nm of torque.
The S-Presso gets a choice of both 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT. Maruti claims the lower-spec variants deliver a mileage of upto 21.4kmpl and the higher variants can deliver 21.7kmpl.
