Maruti Suzuki launched the S-Presso in September 2019 with only a petrol engine. It has now launched its CNG variant with prices ranging from Rs 4.84 lakh to Rs 5.13 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The CNG kit is available in four variants: LXi, LXi (O), VXi, and VXi (O), missing out on the base-spec STD and top-spec VXI+ variants.
They get a uniform price hike of Rs 75,000 over their petrol counterparts.
Like the Celerio’s CNG variant, the engine of the S-Presso CNG also gets a dual interdependent ECU (electronic control unit) that is tuned for usage with both petrol and CNG. The CNG variant is offered with the same BS6 1.0-litre petrol unit (68PS/90Nm) mated to a 5-speed MT. It produces 59PS and 78Nm when used on CNG.
It gets a water-filling equivalent tank capacity of 55 litres and returns a fuel efficiency of 31.2km/kg. Maruti also offers the petrol-powered variants of the S-Presso with a 5-speed AMT gearbox.
As the CNG kit is offered in the existing variants of the S-Presso, its equipment list remains as is. Features on offer include manual AC, keyless entry, and front power windows for the top-spec CNG variant.
Standard safety features on offer include rear parking sensors, ABS with EBD, and driver side airbag.
