The new S-Presso micro-SUV will be based on Maruti Suzuki's Heartect platform; which also underpins other models such as the Swift, Dzire and the Ertiga, to name a few.

It will be powered by a BS-VI compliant 1.2-litre petrol engine borrowed from the likes of the Ignis, Swift and the Wagon R. Maruti Suzuki might also introduce a CNG-variant of the S-Presso, however, this will be launched at a later stage. The engine will be mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox.
