Funniest thing I read today. Thanks for that. When will Maruti ever make a worthy car with a nice powerful engine and roomy interiors?!! The answer is NEVER.

Top trim pricing of this thing is almost equal to that of the Tiago XM. If this still sells, Tata should close auto business. The market isn't worthy of good cars. Period.

I think Tiago XM is close to 5 lacs ex-showroom and it still is BS-IV. Though you are bound to get good discounts on the Tiago and it still makes a lot of sense. Totally agree with your point on this.

Even though the car in the video/ images leaked earlier were laughable, The Designers of the Brochures have always done a great job.

The car looks like a proper Mini " SUV " for once in the brochures, not sure how they pulled it off. Hats Off to the marketing agency !

The car on the other hand - Not sure what Gap they are trying to plug in here ?? In Between the K 10 and Wagon R ? There is not much room there

But being Maruti, I am sure they will sell a good 3 - 4 K per month

A friend just pointed it out that the designers didn't really have to look too far for "imagining" the SPresso. They copied a Mahindra! Suddenly the Jeeto looks more useful to own.

Can someone please tell me where the S-Presso actually resembles the Future-S Concept? Just the circular console? Why spend money on making an elaborate concept!!

After fleecing Indians for a Decade with their ugly entry level tin cans cannibalizing each other, for the first time Maruti felt pressure from the Renault Kwid !

Believe this abomination was the response to counter Kwid !

Looks like parts from different crashed cars were assembled to complete a car of some sorts ! Feels like Project work of Automobile Engg Final semester students !

Almost all the manufacturers these days are like(quoting S-Presso for example):
  1. Starts from ₹ 3,69,000 but sells from ₹ 4,05,000. Buy the base variant if you can live with it, and also you must be lucky enough to get one from our dealers.
  2. Hold the beer, it's not over yet, these are introductory prices and will be revised upwards once the required traction is achieved!
  3. Here you go, you have no choice but to opt the top variant for the features which you feel are really necessary. Or at times you won't get them even in the top trim.
  4. We will load the car with all the bells and whistles, but don't ask us for a much safer & better built car, we will build it just enough to meet the set norms by your government. Want a much better built car? go ask your government to improve the norms!

S Presso Specs and variants,

Maruti S-Presso, the SUV'ish hatchback. EDIT : Launched at Rs. 3.69 lakhs-12.jpg

Quote:
S-Presso Std [Rs 3.69 lakh]
Driver airbag
ABS
Rear parking sensors
Front seatbelt reminders
Speed alert system
Digital speedometer
Vehicle immobiliser
13-inch steel wheels

S-Presso LXi [Rs 4.05 lakh]
In addition to the Std trim, the LXi gets:

Air conditioner
Power Steering
Sun visors

S-Presso VXi [Rs 4.25-4.68 lakh]
Over and above the LXi, the VXi packs in:

Keyless entry
Central locking
Speed sensitive door locks
Marutiís SmartPlay Dock audio system with Bluetooth connectivity
Front power windows
Body coloured bumpers
Wheel covers for the 14-inch steel wheels
Gear shift indicator (MT only)
12V accessory socket
Gear position indicator (AMT only)

S-Presso VXi+ [Rs 4.48-4.91 lakh]
The fully-loaded VXi+ additionally gets:

Front passenger airbag
7.0-inch SmartPlay Studio infotainment system with voice recognition
Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
Steering-mounted controls
Rear parcel tray
Internal wing mirror adjustment
Front seatbelt pre-tensioners
Body coloured wing mirrors and door handles
Parking brake warning
At this price point, it seems like the base variant is priced competitively but is barebones, while the higher-spec trims are well-kitted if pricey, considering the segment. As the Kwid facelift is set to launch tomorrow, we canít objectively say if the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is competitive compared to the Renault. However, compared to the Datsun Redigo 1.0 (Rs 3.90-4.37 lakh), it does seem like Maruti may have another hit on its hands.

Looked the car in a video and appeared quite okay if not as proportionate as Kwid. The rear tire looks odd, and appears way off from center. A rear wash/wipe, broader/larger tires with some funky alloys would have enhanced the road presence.

To my eyes it is a modified previous gen Wagon R. Although the interiors designs are unique and will appeal the market it is being target to, the quality is yet to be known.

Kwid is proportionate and with the recent facelift, it will be better than S-Presso. However, Maruti as a brand can sell anything in India so envisage Kwid sales to dwindle down even more.

Maruti does not want the thinnest amount of gap to be kept unplugged.
Since the current gen Alto K10 did not grow significantly larger than it's predecessor, but the WagonR did, that left a gap to be plugged with a new model - both from dimension & price perspectives. The Estillo is discontinued, and the Celerio seemingly is failing to excite private buyers.
Add to that the newfound market fad for anything shaped like a SUV, but frugal enough to drive, and we have the new S presso !

I think this SUV will be in the top 10 if not the top 5 best selling cars starting next to next month . Everyone needs an SUV here, big or small. I only hope sometime down the line, Hyundai comes up with another Micro SUV which looks like mini Venue to stop this. We have Kwid, but who cares, it does not have the Suzuki logos on it.
