Maruti Suzuki S Presso: new K10C engine
Maruti has been updating its entire line-up with engines equipped with DualJet technology and dual Variable Valve Timing, which gives it better fuel efficiency and lower tail-pipe emissions. Following the S Presso, the Alto remains the only model yet to receive this new technology among Maruti’s Arena line-up, and that’s likely to happen with the next-gen model set to debut next month.
The new K10C engine in the S-Presso produces 67hp and 89Nm of peak torque, which is down by 1hp and 1Nm respectively over the outgoing model. The engine continues to come mated to either a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox.
More importantly, the S Presso now gets engine start-stop feature, which, coupled with DualJet technology, gives it considerably better fuel efficiency. Maruti has revealed an ARAI-claimed fuel efficiency of 25.30kpl for the S Presso automatic and up to 24.76kpl for the manual versions. This is a marked improvement over the 21.7kpl claimed fuel economy for both manual and automatic versions of the outgoing model that was equipped with the K10B engine.
Maruti Suzuki S Presso: variant line-up
The Maruti Suzuki S Presso is available in four trims: Std, LXi, VXi and VXi+. The manual gearbox is standard across all trims, while an AMT option is available for the VXi and VXi+ trims.
Interestingly, Maruti hasn’t yet announced prices for the CNG variants of the S Presso which was available so far on the mid-spec LXi and VXi trims. CNG versions of the new S Presso will likely join the line-up at a later date.
Maruti Suzuki S Presso: new features and equipment
Apart from the new engine, the biggest update to the S Presso is that it now gets ESP with hill-hold assist as standard on the automatic variants. This now makes the S Presso the most affordable car in India with ESP.
Other feature additions include electrically adjustable wing mirrors for the higher-spec VXi and VXi+, and a new cabin air filter. As before, the S Presso continues with dual airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors standard in all variants.
Maruti Suzuki S Presso: rivals
The S Presso rivals the Renault Kwid, the French-brand's entry-level high-riding hatchback in India. The Kwid is sold with either an 800cc engine or a 1.0-litre engine option.
