Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Long Term Report: August 2020

By Ravi Ved | on August 23, 2020

Over the last few weeks, rains have really hit Mumbai hard, but even in such deranged weather conditions and with the coronavirus still out there, it has been a rather busy month full of shoots – as they say, the show must go on. The S-Presso, of course, continues to be our companion for all shoots. As is the case every year, roads in the maximum city have taken a massive beating. Thankfully, the visibility up ahead is great and it is easy to spot and avoid potholes. Around the back though, the visibility is sometimes compromised as the rear windscreen tends to fog up very easily – makes me wish it came with a rear wipe wash. 

I have said this in the past, but I want to reiterate that the S-Presso could really do with better bite from the brakes – emergency braking under such weather conditions really give me the heebie-jeebies. While the S-Presso’s light weight construction really endows it with reasonable performance and good efficiency, the strong cross winds in this weather have an adverse effect on its stability. On the positive side, even 10 months after its launch, the S-Presso still manages to turn a lot of heads – something tells me the orange candy shade has a role to play here.
