Now this is what we call affordable. Suzuki Philippines has finally revealed the starting price of the upcoming S-Presso, and at just P518,000, the new model is an extremely enticing proposition for individuals making the jump into vehicle ownership.

Only one variant of the S-Presso will be made available locally: the Suzuki S-Presso GL MT, powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine that does a modest 67hp and 90Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Those figures might not blow you away, but keep in mind it’s reportedly capable of averaging 21.7 km/L.

It’s also worth noting that the S-Presso boasts 180mm of ground clearance. This, as well as the fact that the vehicle was first made available in India to help motorists over there cope with less-than-ideal road conditions, bodes well for how it will fit into our setting.

If you’re interested in owning the S-Presso, you can get a P15,000 discount if you reserve between now and March 18, 2020. Keep in mind this requires a minimum P5,000 down payment, though.
