Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Long Term Report: June 2020

By Ravi Ved | on June 27, 2020

Since the time the S-Presso entered the autoX garage in Mumbai in November, it has been used extensively as a support car for all our shoots. With Mumbai to Lonavla and Pune runs being a weekly affair, this city slicker was spending more time on the highway than in its natural habitat. On long straight expressways, limitations of the S-Presso’s puny motor and slab-sided body really came to the fore. While driving up the hills of Lonavala, the S-Presso’s limited power and the sluggishness of its AMT were often evident too. 

But now, with the Coronavirus hitting the country hard and forcing us into a complete lockdown, all our shoots have, of course, come to a halt. The car remains mostly parked, except for the weekly grocery runs to the local market. 

For the first time since it came, the S-Presso has been restricted to the urban surroundings, and it doesn’t come as a surprise that it feels right at home. In fact, it has got me thinking that in the post-corona era, cars like the S-Presso can be an ideal mobility solution. With the Maruti badge on the nose, it is reliable, efficient, and easy on the pocket. Sometimes functional capability is all you need.
