Maruti Suzuki has launched the S-Presso at an introductory price of ₹ 3.69 lakh. The ‘micro SUV’ will be made available in two engine-gearbox combinations and four trim levels. The S-Presso is based on Suzuki’s Heartect platform, which also underpins models like the Swift, Dzire and Wagon R. The platform not only brings structural rigidity benefits that will help it meet the new crash test norms, but it also helps make the car light – it weighs just 726-767kg, depending on the variant.
The car will be powered by BS6-compliant 1.0-litre K10B petrol engine that puts out 68hp and 90Nm of torque. The ground clearance is set at 180mm, which is on par with the Kwid, but it gets larger 165/70 R14 tyres in comparison on the higher-spec variants.
