Is it me or does it look like a baby XUV300 with a Marazzo grill?

I tried to hate this as much as possible, but have to admit, the design and the overall product does look acceptable.

Except for those Round things on the grill, which looks like they came from an old scorpio/maxximo.

And that gargantuan black bumper (Looks like it was received in "Daan" from some other vehicle).

The centrally mounter cluster does looks neat though.

You spoke my mind. The tail lamps too feel similar to the Kwid and the orange job in the central console seems to be inspired by Mini.

The front looks acceptable for this price range. The back too seems okay although I would prefer bigger tail lights. The side profile looks bad and may need some sticker work like the Triber/Kwid. Overall this seems okay if the sales target is similar to Celerio. It certainly may not be able to replace Alto in the near future. I remember Suzuki launching Alto to replace the 800 but they sold both for quite sometime. A successful model like Alto may indeed need another facelift or even a complete platform change if Future S fails to pull the crowd.

The dashboard concept is apparently inspired by some watch like structure. Looks like a smartwatch somewhat.

Its actually inspired by Mini ! Suzuki loves taking design cues from the MINIs and this is another example of that.

In comparison, the facelift Kwid looks more promising.

Maybe it's something about the orange color.

S-Presso begs for some more SUV character with Scuff plate, beefier claddings, roof rail, thicker wheels.

Leaked! Maruti S-Presso launch guidelines

Thanks to Kisna for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

Maruti S-Presso, the SUV'ish hatchback. EDIT : Launched at Rs. 3.69 lakhs-1.jpg

Maruti Suzuki is set to launch the S-Presso on September 30, 2019. Now, launch guidelines for showrooms have leaked online.

The images contain details about the display guidelines for Arena and Non-Arena dealerships. All dealerships will have the top-spec VXi+ variant in Solid Sizzle Orange on display. For the unveiling, the car has to be covered in a blue satin cloth. The S-Presso logo unit and accessory kit should be put on the car. The accessory kit includes daytime running lights, black roof end garnish and chrome inserts on the grille.

Arena showrooms with space for two vehicles must display a Pearl Starry Blue car in addition to the Solid Sizzle Orange vehicle. The cars should be displayed on the Dynamic Road.

Non-Arena showrooms should have the S-Presso artwork at the back with banners on either side. A 4 feet tall cut out of Varun Dhawan should be displayed on the left hand side of the display platform.

Wow, that's quite a detailed and comprehensive list of guidelines by the company, it ensures uniform experience throughout all its dealerships across India. I doubt if any other manufacturer in India does the same level of preparation for their launches. I am not much of a fan of Maruti products except for few models, but a fan of Maruti's management.

Is it just me, or it looks very similar to the 8th-gen Alto sold internationally?

If the S-Presso is, in any way, related to this model, then congratulations Maruti! You have managed to sell yet another international model alongside its current generation
They really do look similar. Just look at those headlights, for example! And it wouldn’t be too hard for Maruti to tweak the grill, wouldn’t it? Please share your thoughts.

S Presso available in BS6 Compliant Petrol Engine as against Renault Kwid available in BS4 Compliant Engine

Buying Criteria:

Quote:
If you seek more Stylish, Features Loaded Car with Superior Styling, Better Proportionate in Looks. A Car which looks stunning and possibly most stylish in Sub 5 Lakh Price zone with bigger boot space has Renault Kwid Facelift for you

However, where preference is of Superior Engine Refinement, Future Emission Compliance, Best in class Ingress and Egress and Reliability and After Sales Service Experience in a car where Resale Value is what you seek better at then is S Presso for you.

Looks like Maruti-Suzuki Design has been infiltrated by the car designers from Mahindra Motor. Suzuki should shut down Maruti-Suzuki Design, before it is too late. I wouldn't accept the S.Presso even if given one gratis. The design looks so revolting and disgusting to me especially the console.

To put it gently, the car looks hideous! Not sure what the designers were thinking. The car looks like a bread box planted on a set of wheels.

The AC control on S-Presso seems to have been borrowed from the legacy Alto that I use from 2007 . The kwid control looks more modern to me. If maruti thinks central console is funky, why use old design AC control? These cannot be expensive. I can find such controls for less than 100 rupees on AliExpress! Another legacy part is the door handles.
