Maruti Suzuki launched the S-Presso, its micro-SUV to face-off against Renault Kwid, on the 30th of last month. In the future, the company could launch a more rugged variant either as a regular offering or a special edition. Here's one such derivative called 'S-Presso X', illustrated by IAB's in-house digital artist Shoeb Kalania.
The Maruti S-Presso has already been designed to look muscular like an SUV. With high-raised stance, flat bonnet and swollen wheel arches, it is pretty much already a physically sturdy-looking offering. The S-Presso X only adds more visual elements to make the package look more intimidating. Speaking of which, at the front, it gets dual paint treatment on the front bumper which has additional lights. On the sides, the large-sized S-Presso X badging on the silver-finished pallet looks bold. Also, it makes use of gunmetal alloy wheels. Furthermore, it also uses black-coloured ORVMS, blacked-out roof and roof rails. Overall, the S-Presso X definitely looks more intimidating than the regular model.
On the inside, the Maruti S-Presso X should have the same design and equipment. However, there could be exclusive upholstery and colour highlights on various elements such as the centre console, door panels, AC vents and more for a funkier styling.
As for the mechanicals, Maruti Suzuki will probably not bring any major change to the current setup in order to keep the costs in check. Speaking of which, it is based on the Heatect K platform and sources its power from the BS-VI K10B 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine which generates 50 kW (67.98 PS) at 5,500 rpm and 90 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT.
