The Std and LXI trims have been discontinued, but the Option versions of the same with two airbags are still available


  • Maruti Suzuki discontinues single airbag variants of Alto and S-Presso.
  • LXI in Alto, and Std and LXI variants in S-Presso are no longer on sale.
  • These variants are now only offered with the Option pack, basically with dual airbags.
  • No other changes have been made.

Maruti Suzuki has discontinued the Std and LXI trims in the Alto and S-Presso. These trims were the entry-level single airbag variants of both models, and can now be had as the Option trims with dual airbags. As a result, the entry-level pricing of both cars have gone up. 

Take a look at the prices:


Standard Price

Option Price


Alto Std 

Rs 3.25 lakh

Rs 3.39 lakh

Plus Rs 14,000

Alto LXI

Rs 3.94 lakh

Rs 4.08 lakh

Plus Rs 14,000

S-Presso Std

Rs 3.86 lakh

Rs 4 lakh

Plus Rs 14,000

S-Presso LXI

Rs 4.29 lakh

Rs 4.43 lakh

Plus Rs 14,000

*March prices mentioned as it has been discontinued 


Both models will be offered with dual airbags only from now, which is a good move in our opinion. This move comes after a draft from MoRTH has made it mandatory for all cars to have dual airbags as standard. Apart from this, no other changes have been made to both cars.  


The Alto gets a 48PS 0.8-litre petrol engine, while the S-Presso gets a 68PS 1-litre three-pot petrol motor. A 5-speed manual is standard in both cars, while the S-Presso can be had with an optional 5-speed AMT. Plus, both cars get a CNG option for those looking to beat the skyrocketing petrol prices.
