  • It comes with a round central console, just like the Future-S concept and Mini Coopers.
  • Features include a touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted audio controls and dual airbags.
  • The S-Presso will be powered by a BS6-compliant 1.0-litre K10B petrol engine.
  • Leaked info states that the S-Presso will be available in four trims.
  • Prices expected to start from Rs 4 lakh (ex-showroom).

Maruti Suzuki’s first mini-cross hatchback, the S-Presso, is slated for an official debut tomorrow. The carmaker has already revealed the model via its official website and we know how the S-Presso will look like. But with its launch slated tomorrow, here’s a quick refresher about what to expect from the S-Presso. Will this be the most affordable cross-hatch? Let's find out:

Exterior Design and Dimensions:

 

Visually, the S-Presso’s sleek grille and halogen headlamps takes cues from the Vitara Brezza. Black cladding is present in the bumper to give it a rugged appeal. In profile, there’s no getting around the fact that the S-Presso looks like a jacked up Alto. That said, the upright stance does help it look a tad SUV-ish.  At the rear, the S-Presso comes with an upright tail gate and halogen tail lamps. 

Sizewise,  the S-Presso is a tad smaller than the Kwid and a size larger than the Datsun redi-GO. That said, the S-Presso is the tallest hatchback here. It is also the only one to come with bigger 14-inch alloy wheels. Have a look at the table below to see how its fares in the dimensions department:

Interior And Features: 

Just like the Future-S concept, the S-Presso comes with a round central console that takes influence from Mini Coopers. The top part houses the digital speedometer while Maruti’s SmartPlay infotainment system takes centre position. Contrasting orange bits are present around the central console and AC vents for bling and these are expected to be colour-coordinated with the exterior colour. 

Key features of the S-Presso include a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, steering-mounted audio controls, dual airbags, front power windows as well as manual HVAC. Other expected features include a multi-info display and keyless entry with push button start.  

Powertrain Options:

The S-Presso will come with a new BS6-compliant 1.0-litre petrol engine that develops 68PS of power. It will come mated to a 5-speed manual and an AMT. A CNG variant might come at a later date as Maruti Suzuki has confirmed that all of its small cars will be getting the eco-friendly option. 

Variants:

 

The S-Presso is expected to be available in a total of four trims with six variants: Std(O), LXi, LXi (O), VXi, VXi (O), VXi +. AMT variants are expected to be present on all the top-spec VXi variants, taking the total variant count to nine.

Prices and Rivals: 

Prices for the S-Presso are expected to start from Rs 4 lakh (ex-showroom). When launched, the S-Presso will rival the Datsun redi-GO and the upcoming facelifted Renault Kwid
