Recently, a Maruti S-Presso has been thoroughly customized by an Arena dealership. Read on for the details of this customized Renault Kwid-rival
Launched in the Indian auto market last year, the Maruti S-Presso is considered to be a micro SUV, owing to its SUV-ish front bumper along with cladding and faux skid around the car. The hatchback rivals the Tata Tiago, Renault Kwid, etc. in its segment. The Indian largest automaker sells the S-Presso via Arena dealerships with numerous modification options available. Below is a modified Maruti S-Presso which has been customized by Arena dealership.
The modified Maruti S-Presso is called S-Presso Live limited edition which has received numerous modifications and has an upmarket feel. In the front, the chrome inserts inside the grille have been maintained. It lacks features like LED DRLs which are originally equipped on the bumper. Nevertheless, it is equipped with a black garnish which matches the general theme of the car. The silver faux skid plate and the black lower part of the bumper give the hatchback a robust appearance.
The dual-tone treatment on the side profile is more evident. The side cladding comes with a silver insert. The ORVMs and roof are totally blacked out. The car now runs on dual-tone diamond cut alloy rims which are an accessory of the car. The rear reflector area also comes with black garnish. The spoiler has also been blacked out while the boot gets a chrome strip which stretches between the taillights.
It remains unclear whether the cabin also comes with black and red treatment as part of the package. The Maruti S-Presso receives its power from a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated gasoline burner which can deliver 67 BHP against 90 Nm and is mated to a manual and an AMT unit. A CNG version was also launched in India earlier this year but it is available with only an MT unit. The Maruti S-Presso is priced in the range from INR 3.7 lakh to INR 5.13 lakh (ex-showroom). The car is a suitable option for people who are looking for an affordable hatchback with a high ground clearance and a unique appearance. This hatchback is aimed to be sold mainly to younger customers.
