    Maruti S-Presso Variants Explained: STD, LXI, VXI, VXI+ - Which Variant To Buy?

    by V3Cars Team on Thursday, Oct 03 2019

    After a long wait, Maruti SPresso prices are out and it’s now on sale; just in time to cash in on the festive season. Maruti carefully observed the rise of the Renault Kwid donning the SUV-ish design and decided to take a swing squarely aimed at the Kwid. Now that it’s here, let’s dig deeper to figure out which variant offers the most value, starting with the core of the package: dimensions and specifications

    The Maruti SPresso certainly lives up to the micro-SUV name with a 180mm ground clearance. Compared to the Alto K10, it is marginally longer, wider and has a slightly longer wheelbase as well. The boot space, though, is considerably better in the SPresso.

This engine is available with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission.

    The most affordable variant of the Maruti SPresso starts at Rs. 3.69 lakh while the top variant stretches as far as Rs. 4.91 lakh (ex-showroom). That’s right up the Renault Kwid’s alley if you consider the comparable 1.0-litre variants only.

    Standard features on the Maruti SPresso include driver airbag, ABS, centrally-mounted digital instrument cluster, side body cladding, speed alert and reverse parking sensors. Optional features include a passenger airbag, sun visor and front seatbelt pre-tensioners with force limiter

    With the common attributes out of the way, let’s discuss the features that set the SPresso variants apart.

     

    Maruti S-Presso STD - Not Worth It

    While there are some standard safety features here, the lack of air conditioning and power steering makes it very difficult for us to recommend the base variant. There are better-equipped options out there like the Alto 800 LXI that you can buy instead. However, there are still three good reasons to go for the STD variants:

    1. You’re smitten by the design of the car and can only afford the base variant
    2. You can live without the air conditioning and power steering
    3. You’re tall and find the Alto 800 too cramped

     

    Maruti S-Presso LXI - Barely Enough

    For an additional Rs. 36,000, the LXI variant gives you air conditioning, power steering and sun visors. These features make it easy to justify upgrading to the LXI. For commercial use, this might be good as you’re getting the basic features along with a spacious cabin with easy ingress and egress for your passengers.

     

    LXI Features:

    • All standard features
    • Sunvisor (driver and passenger)
    • Air conditioning
    • Power steering

     

    Maruti S-Presso VXI - Making The Cut

    We can imagine getting the VXI variant for personal use as this is the most affordable variant with body-coloured bumpers. Black, unpainted bumpers totally ruin the look of a car as it comes across as a taxi.

    For just an additional sum of Rs. 19,000, we’re also getting a 2-speaker music system with USB, aux and Bluetooth, a digital multi-info display, which can show fuel efficiency and distance to empty, larger 14-inch wheels, wheel covers, front power windows and remote central locking.

     

    VXI Features:

    • All LXI Features
    • Accessory socket
    • Remote central locking
    • Front power windows
    • Smartplay dock
    • Bluetooth
    • 2 Speakers
    • USB
    • Aux
    • Roof antenna
    • Body-coloured bumpers
    • Full wheel covers
    • Fuel consumption on MID
    • Distance to empty on MID

     

    Maruti S-Presso VXI+ - The One To Get

    For another Rs. 24,000 though, you get body-coloured design inserts around the center console, rear parcel tray, body-coloured door handles and outside mirrors, and seat belt pre-tensioners with force limiters. There are three features that stand out more than the rest though in this variant:

    1. 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    2. Steering-mounted controls
    3. Internally adjustable outside mirrors

    While the infotainment can speak volumes about its own utility, the steering-mounted controls and internally-adjustable mirrors are something you don't miss until you use them. And when you do use them, you can’t live without them. While you lose the tactile feedback when you opt for the touchscreen, you gain it with steering-mounted controls. Meanwhile, the internally-adjustable mirror proves its worth every time another motorist knocks them out of place. You don’t even have to roll down the windows to adjust them. It’s a piece of kit that’s worth more than the sum of its parts.

     

    VXI+ Features:

    • All VXI Features
    • Silver/orange inserts in the cabin
    • Rear parcel tray
    • Internally-adjustable outside mirrors
    • Smartplay Studio 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system
    • Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    • Steering-mounted controls
    • Seatbelt pre-tensioners with force limiters
    • Passenger airbag
    • Parking brake warning
    • B-Pillar black out ape
    • Body-coloured outside mirrors
    • Body-coloured door handles

    Verdict

    The LXI variant of the Maruti SPresso provides enough to serve comfortably in the commercial space. The VXI is good for personal use but it’s the VXI+ variant that offers the most value for just Rs. 24,000 on top of the VXI and trumps everything else in the lineup.
