Maruti labels the S-Presso as a "Micro SUV", and certainly this small car tried very hard to look tough. Today we have got this set of alloys which greatly helps the S-Presso look more imposing.
Maruti launched the S-Presso in the Indian auto market in September 2019 and it became an instant success among younger buyers who liked its youthful design and appeal. Maruti terms the S-Presso as a “Micro SUV”, and it sits below the bigger Vitara Brezza in the brand’s lineup. The S-Presso sold 10,634 units in its first month of being on the market itself and helped Maruti finally post a YoY sales growth after a slump period. The micro SUV market has also seen rapid growth with new models getting launched like the Mahindra KUV 100 and The refreshed Renault Kwid being the main rivals. Today we have got this S-Presso which gets a rather fetching set of alloys.
The pictures that you can see have been uploaded by Velocity Tyres over on Instagram and it shows their new 16-inch rims for the Maruti S-Presso. The new diamond-cut 5-spoke alloys are going well with the Metallic Granite Grey paint job of the car which also gets sporty red brake callipers. It also gets faux skid plates front and rear to complete the tough “Micro SUV” look.
The Maruti S-Presso is based on the Future S concept, and surprisingly a large part of the concept ended up being carried over to production form. It certainly looks different from its rivals in the price range and you can further enhance the looks with the Expedition or Energetic accessory package. Both the packs give the buyer an increased degree of personalisation choices. The S-Presso comes in six colour shades from the factory namely Sizzle Orange, Pearl Starry Blue, Metallic Granite Grey, Solid Fire Red, Metallic Silky Silver and Solid Superior White.
You can spec your Maruti S-Presso in either petrol or CNG trim. Both are powered by a 1-litre 3-cylinder engine which makes similar power and torque figures of 69 PS/90 Nm respectively. A 5-speed manual is the only transmission choice you get currently. Prices for the S-Presso start from Rs 3.70 lakh for the base STD variant and goes up to Rs 5.13 lakh for the top end VXI OPT CNG trim. Do note that all prices are ex-showroom, respectively.
