Finally, now Maruti has officially teased its upcoming micro-SUV slated to launch on September 30th,2019. The number of details has been seen in the designs revealed and that the new model is supposed to be sold through Maruti Suzuki’s Area outlets exclusively.
When the Renault Kwid made its appearance, it did have an impact on the mind of the viewers and the car fanatics which further got dominated by the Maruti Suzuki Alto. What showered blessing for the Kwid was that it was a beefy, imposing and SUV-like model just like an entry-level car could be.
Within 44 months, there were 3 lakh units of Renault models sold. The sales again tend to slower town remaining the mainstay of the company’s range. Finally, the newest small SUV-like car from the Indo-Japanese carmaker is set to put its foot on the ground. It is expected to be positioned above Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 and below the new-gen Wagon R.
The new Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is completely based on the Future S concept car. It was primarily showed as a teaser at the 2018 Auto Expo. But it doesn’t have the common factor to it. It features a squared-off front end with a high bonnet line. The headlines have been merged into the slim grille. And the light appears to be o the halogen units.

Coming to the design specification, S-Presso has not been breaking pathways. It has rather boxy proportions which are meant to be traditional. It could be one of the reasons for being safe in the market. As it is, it has always worked for the previous models like that of Alto and WagonR. And it could even hit the market if the brand is targeting the audience who will be enthused with S-Presso.
