Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Long Term Report: July 2020

By Ravi Ved | on July 19, 2020

While my colleagues in Delhi have been whining about the rise in fuel prices over the past few weeks, I can’t help but make snarky remarks at them about the topic. You see, at about Rs 79 per litre, the cost of petrol in the NCR is still relatively cheaper than the Rs 87 per litre in Mumbai. Thankfully though, the S-Presso is proving to be quite economical. With shoots in Mumbai resuming, the S-Presso too has resumed its duties as a support car. On my recent trip to Lavasa for a shoot, it returned roughly 17-18km/l, which, considering the small engine, sluggish AMT, and the rather steep hill climbs of Lonavla and Lavasa, is frankly quite efficient. In fact, with offices still not operating in full capacity and the traffic within the city lower than ever, the S-Presso is proving to be quite efficient in the urban jungle too. 

But I do think that the S-Presso has a huge scope for improvement in the headlight department. With the onset of the monsoon in Mumbai and visibility compromised, the headlights don’t seem to have a satisfactory spread or reach. The early morning fog in Lavasa made things very difficult in terms of visibility, and the S-Presso’s headlights did little to make it better.
