The Maruti S-Presso has started reaching dealerships ahead of its official launch on 30 September 2019, a new spy video posted on YouTube has revealed.
The Maruti S-Presso will be sold alongside the Maruti Alto K10, as a Renault Kwid rival. The model spied in the video (above) seems to be the lower STD or LXi variant as it is deprived of wheel covers and even chrome garnish on the front radiator grille.
The Maruti S-Presso will feature a high-raised, flat bonnet which comprises squarish headlamps and Maruti Vitara Brezza-inspired grille at the front. The headlights have been kept as halogen units to limit the production costs but the higher variants will still feature LED strip fog lamps. The S-Presso is slapped on with black plastic cladding all around the body to give it a muscular appeal. Its tall stance and flared up wheel-arches further enhance the SUV styling.
The Maruti S-Presso will be sold in nine configurations: STD (O), LXi, LXi (O), VXi, VXi (O), VXi +, VXi AGS, VXi (O) AGS, VXi+ AGS. The VXi+ being the top-crop trim will be kitted with features such as 7.0-inch SmartPlay Studio infotainment system with voice recognition, steering-mounted audio controls, rear parcel tray, body-coloured ORVMs and door handles and a 12V-volt accessory socket. It will be made available with 13- and 14-inch wheel options. The latter will be capped with wheel covers.
The Maruti S-Presso measures 3,665 mm in length, 1,520 mm in width and 1,549 mm (with 13-inch wheels)/1,564 mm (with 14-inch wheels) in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,380 mm and it weighs 1,170 kg (gross weight).
Features like ABS, driver-side airbag, rear parking sensors, seat belt reminders and a speed alert system will be a part of the S-Presso's standard safety kit. The vehicle will run on a BS-VI K10B 1.0-litre petrol K10B engine tuned to delivers 68 PS power and 90 Nm torque. This unit will be married to a standard 5-speed MT or an optional 5-speed AMT. An S-Presso CNG will likely be launched at a later stage.
