Maruti S-Presso CNG Launch Expected This Month In India
The CNG variants are expected to reach the showrooms in June 2020.
The design of the car which Maruti Suzuki played with fire has come out quite amiable and the car sales have gone like hotcakes. To rule the segment MSIL has decided to bring the CNG variant of the car which would be more healthy towards the pocket of their customers.
Production of the S-CNG spec of the car has started in the factories along with the Wagon R, Ertiga, and other cars. The S-Presso will mate the BS6 norms that will result in more efficient driving experiences and softer on our planet.
However the CNG addition would cost a little more than the Pure-Petrol car, another thing that will cost you is that the CNG tank will eat the boot space of your hatch.
In the current times, the availability of CNG stations is possibly high in even Tier 2 as well as Tier 3 cities so it is a good option for those who are towards the Eco-Friendly nature.
Powerhouse and Transmission
Talking about the engine specifications thrusting the car would be the same K10B engine.
3 Cylinder Engine.
68 HP & 90 NM of Torque.
The power figures listed above are of Pure Petrol.
Whereas when the car is running on Compressed Natural Gas, there is a slight loss of power from the engine noting
58 HP & 78 NM.
The car has managed to get a fuel economy of 21kmpl from the AGS as well as the manual variant(5 speed), now how it performs with CNG being its juice is a question mark. S-Presso will have the same CNG tank as its tallboy brother, the WagonR.
Maruti Suzuki’s forte of keeping the weight of the car down has made the S Presso as light as 727kgs at the curb. Adding the CNG tank would increase some more kilos but it would manage to get a decent mileage for sure.
Maruti Suzuki has decided to present the car with the CNG option in the following variants
The CNG will also be offered with the Maruti Suzuki's Auto Gear Shift.
The Mission Green Million plan of the company has contracted the S-Presso too and the car will soon hit the roads with its optional chunky accessories and types of vinyl.
The vehicle is based on the same HEARTECT platform of the company which ensures maximum space in the cabin by keeping the dimensions of the car very ample.
S-Presso maintains a high seating position which gives you a commanding position so that you can have a feel of SUV. Maruti Suzuki also likes to call the S-Presso as the ‘Small SUV’.
The S-Presso is a highly customizable car wherein you can choose from 6 different colors, it also has some good to see features in the compact car segment such as
Steering mounted controls.
7-inch touchscreen system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay.
Center Positioned Instrument Cluster.
The prices of the car are not yet confirmed but the CNG variant will cost a little bit more premium than the outgoing model. It would be available in both LXi as well as the VXi. It will cost around 25 to 30 thousand more than the pure petrol version because of the inclusion of the CNG KIT and its fitting charges.
