Maruti is set to launch its next car, the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso on 30th September this year. But we can already see spy shots of the car without any camouflage. This shows that the company is in the final stages of testing the car.
One look at the front of the new S-Presso and we can see the unmistakable design cues from the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. This is because of the distinct grille shape. However, the grille is much slimmer this time around. The car also has a high riding stance just like the Future-S concept it is based on. A lot of the design elements are carried over from the Future-S concept. We can see this in the overall silhouette, wheel arches, and the B-pillar.
The front of the car is very boxy with a high hood line. The bumpers and fenders are also huge. The headlights complement the grille in a nice way. The turn indicators are mounted on the front fenders. We can also see the mirrors which appear to be internally adjustable units. The door handles are flat paddle style pieces. The side profile also gives a WagonR vibe with its tall 1,564mm roofline. Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is also longer than the Alto K10 with a longer wheelbase but is shorter than the Kwid, one of its main competitors.
The new S-Presso will run on a 1.0-liter, 3 cylinders K10B petrol engine. This is the same as the one in the Alto K10 and produces 68hp and 90Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and also an AMT option. The car will be going up against the Renault Kwid, Datsun Redi-go and also the Tata Tiago.
