android, updated suzuki s-presso now available – the most affordable car in south africa

The updated Suzuki S-Presso “micro-SUV” has gone on sale in South Africa with six variants priced from R162,900 to just under R200,000.

The compact Suzuki gains new features, a more economical power unit, as well as fresh design elements.

The S-Presso is available in GL, GL+, and S-Edition trims, each one now offered in both manual and automatic.

What you get

From the factory, the new S-Presso is shipped with front electric windows, central locking, manual airconditioning, rear parking sensors, ABS, dual front airbags, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, and radio preparation – which means the GL derivative comes with two speakers and an antenna, but that a radio unit must be installed for an additional cost.

New for the facelifted line-up are also a multifunction steering wheel, electric wing mirrors, an engine auto start/stop system, and electronic stability control that regulates wheel slip around corners for better handling performance.

Design-wise, the side and wheel cladding was removed and replaced with a more pronounced side sill, and silver bezel inserts are now found on the front and rear bumpers.

Upgrading to the GL+, the S-Presso brings a 7-inch central touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth; as well as 14-inch alloy wheels.

For the top-of-the-line S-Edition, fitments additionally include a 9-inch infotainment system, reverse camera, and a model-exclusive styling kit.

Under the bonnet, the new S-Presso is equipped with the same 1.0-litre, petrol motor as its sibling, the Celerio.

The entire range can now be had with a five-speed manual (MT) or automated manual transmission (AMT), which is the first time the entry-level GL is offered in a self-shifting guise.

The new drivetrain gives the small Suzuki an output of 49kW and 89Nm, 1kW and 1Nm lower than the outgoing generation.

However, it scores a better average fuel consumption than before, reporting 4.4l/100km in manual and 4.6l/100km in AMT.

Price 

The South African pricing and model line-up for the new Suzuki S-Presso are as follows:

  • Suzuki S-Presso 1.0 GL MT – R162,900
  • Suzuki S-Presso 1.0 GL AMT – R176,900
  • Suzuki S-Presso 1.0 GL+ MT – R169,900
  • Suzuki S-Presso 1.0 GL+ AMT – R183,900
  • Suzuki S-Presso 1.0 S-Edition MT – R185,900
  • Suzuki S-Presso 1.0 S-Edition AMT – R199,900

Each purchase includes a 5-year/200,000km warranty, a 2-year/30,000km service plan, and one year of insurance.

The GL and GL+ variants are available immediately, while the new S-Edition will go on sale in the first quarter of 2023, said Suzuki.
