Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, the much-awaited small hatchback, or Mini SUV, as the company is calling it, has launched in India today, and we have all the highlights from the launch event here. The new entry-level car from Maruti Suzuki India will rival the likes of the Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-GO. The new Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is based on the Future-S concept car that was shown at the Auto Expo 2018 last year, and Maruti Suzuki has already revealed a bunch of details about the car, including what it looks like. We have already shared the engine details and other specifications of the car with you, and also our expectations with regards to its pricing.
Under the hood, the new Maruti Suzuki S-Presso gets the same 1-litre engine that powers the Alto K10. The 998 cc, three-cylinder petrol engine is BS6 compliant and makes about 67 bhp at 5500 rpm and a peak torque of 90 Nm at 3500 rpm. Transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox and Maruti's AGS (Auto Gear Shift) Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) unit.
The car will come in 4 variants - Standard, LXI, VXI, VXI+ and is likely to come with safety features like dual airbags, antilock braking system (ABS) + electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and reverse parking sensors as standard. Moreover, Maruti is also offering a 7-inch Smartplay studio touchscreen infotainment system in the top-end variant of the S-Presso.
