Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Long Term Report: September 2020

By Ravi Ved | on September 26, 2020

Earlier this month, the S-Presso went for its routine 10,000kms service, which means that it was out of commission for a good part of the month. In its absence, I had to drive my father’s Fiat Linea, which made me realise, once again, just how effortless it is to drive the S-Presso. And it isn’t just about the AMT transmission that our car comes fitted with – I would gladly trade that for a manual – it’s the visibility from behind the wheel that really makes a world of difference. The S-Presso’s tall seating and the narrow A-pillar ensure good visibility from behind the wheel – something that makes driving and parking in Mumbai an absolute breeze. I missed the practicality of the S-Presso’s cabin every time I drove the Linea. While the Fiat has no usable cup holders and the door pockets are too small to accommodate bottles of any size, the S-Presso has no such issues. What I didn’t miss much was its ride quality. The suspension is firm, especially for a car in this class, and it does make the ride a bit restless and noisy over potholes and broken tarmac.
