Maruti Suzuki India has announced the launch of new S-Presso today – Prices now start from Rs 4.25 lakh, ex-sh
Just a few days ago, Maruti had discontinued multiple variants of S-Presso. Then, we saw that S-Presso sales declined to its lowest ever in June 2022. From averaging over 5k units every month, sales of S-Presso declined to around 600 units last month. Some thought that this was because Maruti was getting ready to discontinue S-Presso. But that is not the case.
The reason sales declined last month is because Maruti Suzuki India was getting ready to launch an updated S-Presso. Today, Maruti has announced the launch of 2022 S-Presso, with prices starting from Rs 4.25 lakhs, ex-sh. This makes it up to Rs 71,000 more expensive than the old S-Presso.
2022 Maruti S-Presso Prices
New S-Presso is offered in a choice of 4 variants – Std, LXI, VXI and VXI+. All four can be had with manual transmission, while you also get the option of AMT with the top 2 variants – VXI and VXI+. The base variant of 2022 Maruti S-Presso is now priced at Rs 4.25 lakh, ex-sh. Earlier, it was priced from Rs 3.85 lakh, ex-sh. This makes the base variant expensive by Rs 40,000.
Similarly, other variants of the 2022 Maruti S-Presso have also gotten expensive. LXI MT variant now costs Rs 4.95 lakh, which is Rs 65k more expensive. VXI MT costs Rs 5.15 lakh, VXI+ MT costs Rs 5.49 lakh, VXI (O) MT costs Rs 5.65 lakh while top of the line VXI+ (O) AMT costs Rs 5.99 lakh – making it Rs 71,000 more expensive than old S-Presso. All prices are ex-sh.
Interestingly, there is no CNG variant on offer with the new 2022 S-Presso. It is likely to launch at a later date. Earlier S-Presso was offered in 4 CNG variants of LXI, LXI (O), VXI and VXI (O). The reason prices of the new S-Presso are increased by up to 15.12%, is because it now gets many new features, and an updated engine that delivers more mileage.
