The S-Presso is basically the production version of the Maruti Future S concept model that was showcased at the Auto Expo 2018. The upcoming Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is expected to draw power from a 1.0-litre three cylinder petrol engine that will come mated to both, a five-speed manual transmission and AMT. The Maruti S-Presso is expected to return a fuel efficiency of close to 24-25kmpl. The upcoming Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is all set to be launched in India on 30th September. Maruti Suzuki’s first ever SUV styled hatch will go up against the likes of the Datsun redi-GO and the Renault Kwid in the segment.
