Suzuki has launched its new S-Presso SUV which aims to offer a number of high-end features in a budget car price range.
The S-Presso shares its engine with the Suzuki Celerio, a three-cylinder engine which offers 50kW at 5,500 r/min and 90Nm of torque at 3,500 r/min.
Suzuki said that this engine also has an average fuel consumption of less than 5 litres per 100km which also makes it a strong budget option.
All models in the new S-Presso range feature two airbags as standard and are fitted with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with emergency brake-force distribution (EBD).
Suzuki said that all S-Presso models also feature reverse parking sensors as standard, while the GL+ and S-Edition models will further complement this system with an in-built reverse camera.
All versions of the S-Presso feature electric windows for the front occupants, rear parking sensors, air conditioning, power steering and a multi-information display, which includes information such as distance to empty, trip duration and distance travelled.
The GL+ model includes a full-colour infotainment system. This system is touch-sensitive and includes full integration for most smartphones through the in-built Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems.
The infotainment system also offers USB and auxiliary ports and Bluetooth connectivity as standard and will display the image from the in-built reverse camera on the screen.
All versions of the Suzuki S-Presso come with a 2-year / 30 000km service plan, and 5-year / 200 000km mechanical warranty.
