Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch the new S-Presso hatchback in the country on September 30, 2019, and the company has given us a sneak peek into what it looks like by revealing a sketch of the car today.
The company has released a new teaser as well as a sketch. Set to be the carmaker’s smallest SUV, the Maruti S-Presso will arrive just in time for the festive season 2019.
The sketch of the car corroborates the assertion that the upcoming Maruti Suzuki micro SUV will come bearing some design and styling elements that are bound to remind onlookers of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Some of the most notable features include the pentagon-Esque headlamps flanking the chunky grille and the riding height, which appears to be quite SUV-like.
C.V. Raman, Senior Executive Director (Engineering), Maruti Suzuki India, said, “Maruti Suzuki has always developed new segments and cars to match the changing needs, tastes and lifestyles of our customers. Designed in-house by Maruti Suzuki, S-PRESSO marks a big shift in the way compact cars are created and crafted in India. Its design language is inspired by our line-up of SUVs and the modern user’s lifestyle. The Mini SUV S-PRESSO is a testimony of Maruti Suzuki’s journey to deliver designs, technology, and experiences that are ahead of their time, taking consumers on a drive into the future.”
The company noted that Maruti Suzuki S-Presso has been designed and developed for India as well as other international markets across the globe. The SUV, which will be retailed via Maruti Suzuki ARENA dealerships in India, is expected to get the same engine as the Alto and Celerio — a 1.0-liter motor that generates 67 bhp and 90 Nm. For transmission, Maruti Suzuki is likely to offer the S-Presso micro SUV with two options, namely, a five-speed manual and a five-speed AMT.
Maruti Suzuki S-Presso’s price is expected to range between ₹3 lakh – ₹4.5 lakh.
