The Maruti S-Presso micro SUV will go on sale during Diwali, 2019
We reported earlier that Maruti will launch an all-new mini SUV, based on the Concept Future S this year. Media reports claim that the new model, codenamed Y1K could be called the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso. Scheduled to be launched during festive season, the upcoming small SUV will take on the likes of the Renault Kwid, the Mahindra KUV100 and the upcoming Tata H2X.
The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso micro-SUV has recently been spotted testing, which reveals the brand’s new design direction. The spy images reveal that the small car will have an upright and imposing front fascia with short bonnet and big pillars along with high ground clearance. The small SUV will come with wraparound headlamps with LED daytime running lights for the top-spec model. The rear images reveal a compact design with wrap-around tail-lamps, roof rails and beefier bumper with possible black plastic cladding. The spotted model was equipped with regular steel wheels, but the production model is expected to receive around 14-15-inch alloy wheels. Also See – All-new Maruti Celerio launching in 2020
