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.
We’ll have more photos and information on this quirky little Suzuki when it makes its official Philippine debut on March 18, 2020. Would you go for this or an entry-level sedan like the Dzire instead? Let us know in the comments.
