The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso currently faces competition from the likes of Renault Kwid, Datsun Redi-GO as well as its very own sibling, the Maruti Suzuki Alto

Since its arrival back in 2019, the S-Presso has received a fairly positive response from Indian buyers, and the entry-level car has continued to perform well month in, month out. Its quirky styling, high ride height, unorthodox paint schemes, its equipment list as well as its attractive pricing; all of it has seemed to work well for the micro SUV.

In the month of April 2021 alone, Maruti Suzuki managed to sell 7,737 units of the S-Presso in the Indian market. As compared to the 7,252 units sold in March 2021, the entry-level car recorded a positive MoM growth in sales by 6.7 per cent.

The S-Presso retains its position as one of the best-selling entry-level cars in the Indian market, and currently rivals the likes of the Renault Kwid, Datsun Redi-GO, while it also faces competition from its own sibling, the Alto. Maruti Suzuki retails the S-Presso at a starting price of Rs 3.78 lakh, which goes up to Rs 5.26 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom) for the top-end trim.
