- The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso has proportions worthy of an SUV thanks to its upright position. It also benefits from a raised ground clearance of 180mm, bold coatings all around as well as almost vertical pillars.
- The S-Presso gets a funky and sleek all-black interior with a dashboard that receives body-color inserts. The main highlight is the round center console which is inspired by the Mini Cooper.
- The car is fitted with the brand’s SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system, which has smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
- The S-Presso uses the company’s proven 1.0-liter K10B petrol engine, developing 67 hp at 5,500 rpm and 90 Nm with manual and AMT options. The car is also available in a CNG version, offering an impressive fuel economy of 31.2 km / kg.
- The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso has a 2380mm wheelbase providing good head and knee room at the rear.
- The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso looks boring and outdated with an unappealing design. While appearance and style is a subjective matter, we think it could have been more aggressive.
- The car lacks several essential features such as rear power windows, IRVM day / night, rear defogger. Maruti could have offered these features on higher versions.
- Although it gets a driver’s side airbag, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors as standard, the car received a zero star crash test score in the Global NCAP. We think Maruti Suzuki S-Presso could have had better structural security. The passenger side airbag and seat belt reminder for the two front passengers are standard on the premium trim only.
- With a width of 1520 mm, the car is best suited for 4 adults. It gets a bit cramped for three adult passengers in the back seat. However, accommodating two adult passengers and a child is not much of a problem.
- The engine is a bit noisy and the soundproofing could have been much better, especially from the engine compartment.
