S-Presso is a model strongly suspected to be sold by Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SISTER) in Indonesia. This car was first launched on September 30, 2019 in India as a gap filler above the Alto and below the Wagon R.
Suzuki designed the S-Presso using the Heartech platform which is also used as the basis for the Swift and Wagon R. Overall, the S-Presso is smaller than the Wagon R, measuring 3.56 meters long, 1.52 meters wide and 1.56 meters high.
The heart of the S-Presso is a 998 cc K10B 3-cylinder with a big 67 hp and 90 Nm of torque. This engine is BS6 or Euro 6 equivalent with a fuel tank capacity of 27 liters available.
Two transmissions are available, namely a 5-speed manual and Auto Gear Shift (AGS). All engine power is transmitted to the two front wheels.
S-Presso empty weight 726-767 kg, this is one of the points favoring energy efficiency. Maruti Suzuki claims on its website that the best fuel consumption of this car is 21.7 km per liter.
Features available in this car include dual airbags for driver and passenger, ABS plus EBD, power steering, remote keyless entry, immobilizer and parking sensors.
The Indian-spec S-Presso had undergone a Global NCAP crash test with a disappointing zero-star result.
After India, the Renault Kwid competitor was sold in Nigeria in 2019 and in South Africa in 2020. Then in 2020 it will also slip into Chile, Peru and the Philippines.
The strong S-Presso will be launched in Indonesia, possibly at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) from August 11-21, 2022.
The S-Presso was previously seen in a domestically designed patent application, then last week netizens reported receiving a photo of its appearance being transported by truck in Indonesia.
Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SIS) has not confirmed the launch of the S-Presso in the country.
“For new products, be patient,” said Donny Saputra, chief marketing officer of SIS.
