The Maruti S-Presso hatchback is the latest entry-level offering from the brand in the Indian market. The S-Presso is based on the ‘Future-S' concept showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo and will be positioned above the Alto K10 in the brand's product lineup.

The Maruti S-Presso will come with a tall SUV-ish stance, similar to its main rival, the Renault Kwid. The hatchback has been spotted testing in the Indian market on multiple occasions.

The Maruti S-Presso is said to be based on the brand's Heartect platform, which also underpins other models such as the Ignis, WagonR, Swift and a few others. This will make the car extremely lightweight yet rigid. The car is expected to weigh 726kg, making it lighter than the entry-level Alto 800.

The Maruti S-Presso is said to be offered in a range of four variants: standard, LXi, VXi and VXi+. All four variants of the hatchback will be powered by the same engine. This includes the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit, which powers the Alto K10.

The engine will produce 68bhp and 90Nm of torque and will come mated to a five-speed manual as standard. Maruti Suzuki is also expected to offer an AMT as optional as well.

The current 1.0-litre engine on the Alto K10 is BS-IV compliant. However, the engine will be upgraded to BS-VI emission norms, for the Maruti S-Presso hatchback.

Also, once launched in India expect the Maruti S-Presso to be priced in the range of around Rs 3 lakh to Rs 3.5 lakh, ex-showroom.
