    Maruti Suzuki S-Presso is available with a 1.0L petrol engine with a 5-speed transmission. The power and torque output of this engine are 68PS and 90Nm, respectively.

    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.2 produces 83PS of power. It is the most powerful engine in the segment, having 15PS more power than S-Presso 1.0.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.2 produces 113Nm of peak torque. It has the best torque figures in the segment.
    • With a manual transmission, Maruti Suzuki Alto has the best fuel-efficiency figure of 22.05kmpl.
    • With the automatic transmission, Renault Kwid 1.0 has the best fuel-efficiency figure of 22.0kmpl.
    • It’s worth noting that the Renault Kwid automatic is the only AMT-type automatic car without manual gear selection. The Redi-Go, which uses the same engine and transmission has this option and so do all the other automatic cars in this comparison.

    Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.2 petrol engine offers the best torque in this segment, so it is expected to offer better driveability compared to all other cars. WagonR’s 1.2-litre engine is the most powerful in this comparison as it belongs in the B1 and B2 segment. So, naturally, it’ll win the performance challenges against the A-segment cars like the Kwid, Redi GO and S-Presso. But, with the 1.0-litre engine, all cars have comparable performance.

    • Renault Kwid is the longest car in the segment. It is 166mm longer than S-Presso.
    • Hyundai Santro is the widest car in the segment. It is 125mm wider than S-Presso.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is the tallest car in the segment. It is 111mm taller than S-Presso.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has the longest wheelbase in the segment. Its wheelbase is longer than the S-Presso’s by 55mm.
    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has the biggest boot space in the segment. It has 71-lt more boot space than the S-Presso. 
    • Datsun redi-GO's ground clearance of 187mm is the best in the segment. The Kwid isn’t too far behind at 184mm and it has the second-best ground clearance.
    • While all cars get 14-inch wheels at least in their higher variants, Alto 800 remains the only car that has the smallest 12-inch wheels. Its tyre size is also the narrowest in this class of entry-level cars.
    • S-Presso’s lower variants get 13-inch wheels with 145-section tyres. The Kwid and Redi-Go which also have micro SUV styling, get 14-inch wheels with 165-section tyres even on their base variants.

    Amongst all the A-segment cars, Datsun redi-GO has the highest ground clearance, so it should be the last car to bottom-out on uneven roads. Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has the biggest boot in the segment, so it can carry maximum luggage. In terms of cabin space, the WagonR’s bulbous proportions give it almost an unfair advantage. It’s tall boy design also gives it a better road presence than all other cars in this comparison.
