2019 Maruti Suzuki S-Presso revealed ahead of September 30 launch
Maruti Suzuki has revealed its upcoming small-SUV, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, on its website ahead of the car's formal launch on September 30. These new pictures show all the details of the new car, including those of its interiors.
These pictures confirm all of the styling cues we've anticipated from the slew of spy photos that have been doing the rounds lately. Notable cues here are the high ride height, a factor accentuated by the large dark inserts on the bumper. also notice the slight bulges along the sides of the car and around the reflectors. There's also a rising window-line, a chunky C-pillar and tail lamps with a slight hint of the Vitara Brezza to them. The frontal design has a high bonnet line and a big grille with the cubic chrome inserts from the Brezza bringing in the traditional SUV cues. The headlamps are large squarish halogen units.
The interiors of the S-Presso take on an all-black layout with body-coloured inserts. A distinctive feature is the central instrument cluster, which along with the SSmartplay Studio infotainment system, is enclosed in a round instrument binnacle. This is flanked by a low-set dash while the Ac controls sit below the central unit. There's the steering wheel from cars like the new Wagon R along with a set of mounted controls. The sits are finished in fabric with contrasting stitches. Notably, this seems like the mid-spec AMt version, as evidenced by the manual windows in the second row.
The S-Presso is expected to sit above the Alto in the Maruti Suzuki line-up and come powered with the BSVI compliant 1.0-litre 3-cylinder motor seen on cars like the Alto K10 and the base versions of the WagonR. This should be paired with either a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox. The S-Presso will be a more direct rival to the Renault Kwid and will be slightly larger than the Alto in terms of size.
We expect prices of the S-Presso to start under the Rs 5 lakh mark on-road.
