According to some sources, Maruti S-Presso will come into four equipment lines. At first, Maruti will be available with petrol model only. It will derive power from the K10B 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine. This petrol engine is able to produce a maximum power of 67.98 PS and a maximum of 90 Nm. Besides, Maruti S-Presso will comply with the BSVI emission norms from the get-go. Maruti Suzuki also promised to offer CNG variants at a later stage.
About the transmission option, it is expected that Maruti’s cross-hatch will come with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. While the manual transmission will be offered as a standard option, the 5-speed AMT is only available for the top-spec variants only.

The Maruti S-Presso reflects the design of the Future S Concept. The production version carries forward the SUVish styling of the concept car but it will be tuned down to some extent. It is expected that the Maruti S-Presso will follow the Renault Kwid’s design approach with chunky bumper and other accentuated SUV-ish elements.
Previously, Maruti S-Presso was expected to replace the Alto 10. However, as it turns out, the Alto K10 will be continued to go on offer and the S-Presso will be slot above the current Alto K10. Maruti S-Presso will compete against the Renault Kwid which is about to receive a new facelift soon. Maruti S-Presso is expected to be launch at the price from Rs 3.25 lakh to 4.7 lakh.
