The new offering from Maruti, a mini cross-hatch, catches attention for its ruggedness and SUV like stance. From the front, S-Presso has a tall front end with a dual-tone bumper with a grille similar to Vitara Brezza. It also sports a muscular stance and the high ground clearance just adds up to the SUV stance of the S-Presso.
Under the hood, S-Presso’s 1.0-litre BS6 petrol engine generates 67hp and 90Nm of torque. Overall, Maruti Suzuki’s new offering is priced just according to the features inside. Though the standard version does not seem like a fair deal, but with a few accessory inputs it can become a comfortable ride for consumers.
