Maruti S-Presso Review

Maruti’s latest small car is named after a type of coffee most of India isn’t used to. An espresso is small, bitter and usually an acquired taste. Thankfully, a Maruti Suzuki isn’t something we need getting used to. Moreover, the formula here isn’t exactly unique either. It’s something Renault has done successfully with the Kwid in the past. And, Maruti wants to cash in on the love you and I have for cars with jacked up ride heights, and also our collective hate for lunar surfaces the authorities insist on calling roads. Behold, the S-Presso.

A spacious cabin and effortless driving manners make the S-Presso an ideal first car for the family, if you can get past the looks, that is.


Maruti Suzuki says the S-Presso is a micro-SUV. And, we don’t entirely agree with that train of thought. Yes, it does have a rather impressive 180mm ground clearance and a tall-boy like stance too. But, there’s no escaping the fact that this looks more like a hopped-up Alto than a scaled-down Brezza. 

There’s an attempt to connect the dots to the Brezza, however. Viewed from the front, the headlamps, toothy grille and that large bumper will remind you a bit of the compact SUV. Bits like the tall and flat bonnet and the sharply raked A-pillar are more cues for you to think it’s got some SUV genes in its design. Viewed dead on, the S-Presso looks tall and narrow. Also (sadly) there’s no spunk here. Nothing that’d make you go wow at first glance. That a basic feature like foglamp has been omitted, and the daytime running lamp is an accessory doesn’t help either. 

From the side, you’d first notice the lack of alloy wheels even on the top-spec variant. The tiny indicator on the front fender is a straight lift from a twenty-year-old Zen, and that does make you question a few design decisions at Maruti. The S-Presso has XL-sized doors, and Maruti could’ve offered some lower body cladding to help break the monotony of solid colour.

The rather bland rear end isn’t anything to write home about. Maybe Maruti Suzuki could've chosen to liven this place up with LED elements in the tail lamps. Even something minor as spreading out the S-Presso badging over the centre of the boot would've added some life to this sedate rear end. 

Chances are you'd want to slap on some accessories to make your S-Presso stand out a bit. That list includes daytime running lamps (that seem obscenely priced at Rs 10,000), side and wheel arch cladding and alloy wheels. Tick all of them, and you're looking at a cumulative expense of nearly Rs 40,000. With these accessories, the small Suzuki does look a lot more appealing. But then again, it pushes the overall pricing dangerously close to cars from a segment above. 

Size-wise, the S-Presso is a step up from the Alto — it’s bigger in every measurable way. It’s also the tallest in its class, beating the Kwid by a significant 74mm. But in every other department, the Kwid takes the upper hand.

  S-Presso Kwid redi-GO
Length (mm) 3665 3731 3429
Width (mm) 1520 1579 1560
Height (mm) 1564 1490 1541
Wheelbase (mm) 2380 2422 2348


The doors on the S-Presso open wide, and you can simply walk into the cabin. Compared to the Alto and Kwid where you have to lower yourself into the car, this is much easier. The tiny dashboard, the quirky circular element in the centre and the centrally-mounted speedometer all grab attention instantly. On our orange test car, the bezels on the centre console and side AC vents were colour coordinated. Pick any other exterior colour, and you get a silver finish here. Quality levels here seem acceptable for a car this size. It’s a couple of notches up from the Alto, and a notch below the WagonR. 

Once in, you’ll agree that Maruti Suzuki has managed to eke out some serious space from a car this small. It’s a genuine family car that can seat four six-footers with ease. And that’s a surprise! The first part of the surprise is the cabin width. Despite being narrower by almost 60mm compared to the Kwid, the S-Presso manages to deliver better shoulder room. At the front, you’ll notice the power window switches on the centre console. That saves some vital real estate on the door pad. Then, the door pads itself are super narrow — giving you those crucial extra millimetres of width. Headroom at the front shouldn’t be a problem unless you’re way above 6ft tall. Surprisingly, the Alto offers more here.

Front Seat S-Presso Kwid Alto
Headroom 980mm 950mm 1020mm
Cabin Width 1220mm 1145mm 1220mm
Minimum Knee Room 590mm 590mm 610mm
Maximum Knee Room 800mm 760mm 780mm
Seat Base Length 475mm 470mm  
Backrest Height 660mm 585mm 640mm

Maruti has opted for super soft cushioning for the seats. And this feels comfy, if you’re out and about for a small city sprint. However, if you had to spend upwards of an hour or two in these seats, you’d wish they were a little firmer. On a related note, the seats feel narrow and could’ve done with more bolstering too. You also miss out on adjustable headrests, but the integrated unit does support the neck and head adequately. 

It’s delivering enough on storage spaces at the front too. There’s a small glovebox, a handy shelf above it for your wallet and phone and 1-litre bottle holders on the door. The floor console gets a couple of cup holders and a small cubby for some knick-knacks. Except for maybe the cubby feeling slightly small for large-screened phones, you shouldn’t have any complaints with storage space at the front. Sadly, that’s not something we can say about the rear. Save for the small rectangular cubby on the floor (behind the handbrake) - there’s absolutely nothing. No door pockets, and no seatback pockets even. 

Gloss over that for a bit, and you’re met with surprise number two. Knee room! The S-Presso is a big leap ahead compared to the Alto, and noticeably more than the Kwid too. In fact, compare the numbers to the Ignis (that’s a bigger car, with a bigger wheelbase) and the S-Presso manages to outshine that as well. Here, headroom is ample even for those slightly taller than six feet. What’s likely to be a bother are the integrated headrests. It barely supports the base of the neck for someone who’s 5’8”-5’10”. If you’re taller still, you’re left with virtually no support. 

Rear Seat S-Presso Kwid Alto
Headroom 920mm 900mm 920mm
Shoulder Room 1200mm 1195mm 1170mm

Seat Base Length 455mm 460mm 480mm
Backrest Height 550mm 575mm 510mm

*Front seat adjusted for 5'8" to 6' occupants.

It’s a bit much to expect a car this small to be able to seat five. Naturally, three abreast at the rear is super tight, and definitely not recommended. It’s a comfortable four-seater that leaves ample room for everyone when used as one. And the 270-litre boot is more than happy to swallow luggage too. We could put in two backpacks and two overnighters with ease and had some room to spare for another backpack. 


With the S-Presso, you get the tried and tested 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder engine that we’ve seen in the Alto K10 and the WagonR. While power outputs remain the same at 68PS and 90Nm, the motor is now BS6 compliant. Start the engine up and you hear the familiar thrummy 3-cylinder note. Vibrations, however, are quite well controlled. Unless you’re driving at a really slow speed in a high gear, it wouldn’t be bothersome. 

Thankfully, the stricter emission norms haven’t really choked the performance out of this engine. It’s the same peppy, thrummy engine that loves to be revved up. It’s quite easy-going inside the city. You can practically stay in second or third gear throughout the commute, and the engine wouldn’t protest. It does just fine crawling over speed breakers in second and pulling up to speed in the same gear. This also makes darting in and out of gaps in traffic stress-free. What makes the drive experience easier is that controls - typical of a small Maruti - are super light, and require no effort. 

On the highway, this engine is at ease cruising between 80-100kmph. But overtaking fast-moving traffic in fifth is a no-no. You will have to downshift to get the acceleration you need. However, if you are cruising around 60-70kmph in third or fourth, you can simply step on the accelerator and make progress. 

Of course, you can pick the AMT and leave the gear changing business to the car. It’s a commuter, so make sure you temper expectations before you head out for a test drive. Performance from the AMT is as you’d expect - it gets the job done. Upshifts, for the most part are smooth; but you’d notice the downshifts. If you press the accelerator fully for an overtake, it’d take a second or two to downshift. This is why highway overtakes in the S-Presso AMT requires a little more planning. 

Between the two, we’d pick the manual. Even for heavy city driving, it isn’t really a whole lot of effort. Second, it does make the driving experience that much more involving.

Maruti’s ‘micro-SUV’ gets a driver airbag as standard across the range, along with ABS with EBD and reverse parking sensors. Notably, a passenger airbag is available only in the top-spec VXi+ variant, and is a Rs 6,000 optional extra for every other variant. We would urge you to not buy any variant that doesn’t have the passenger airbag.

The S-Presso hasn’t been crash tested by an independent authority such as the NCAP yet. However, it complies with the crash test norms laid down for India. 


You can choose between four variants: Standard, LXi, VXi and VXi+. Save for the top-spec VXi+ trim, all other get a (O) sub variant that adds a passenger airbag and front seatbelts with pretensioners and force limiters. The base variant can be left out of the consideration list since it misses bare essentials like a power steering, air-conditioning and a power socket. 

The mid-spec LXi (O) variant can be considered if you’re on an absolutely strict budget. This just adds power steering and AC to the bare bones standard variant. Between the VXi (O) and the VXi+, we’d recommend stretching for the latter. That’s because for not a lot more money you get internally adjustable rearview mirrors, a touchscreen infotainment system, and steering-mounted audio controls.

    The style of this car is very poor, the engine is also not smooth, design of the dashboard is poor. Alto 800 is better than this in my opinion.
