Carmakers don’t often launch multiple vehicles—let alone multiple all-new nameplates—in the same event, but when they do, there’s a good chance the cars making their debut are highly anticipated models.
That’s why Suzuki Philippines’ cancellation of its big launch back in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic was nothing short of a disappointment for a lot of us, despite the reason being completely understandable and justified. But had the event taken place as planned, we would’ve seen the formal introduction of two new Suzukis—one of which is the S-Presso, a car that I myself have been eagerly waiting for to arrive here.
Thankfully, Suzuki is now lending out test cars once again. I believe Lady Luck smiled on me this time, as I was offered the chance to get up close and personal with the very hatch I was excited to try out. It was an offer I wouldn’t ever dare refuse.
And now that I’ve finally gotten my hands on this little thing, I have to say it’s way more than everything I expected it to be. As its name suggests, it’s not like your usual cup of coffee.
