As far as features are concerned, the S-Presso’s base variant includes goodies like driver side airbag, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and digital display in the instrument cluster. The base Std. variant can be had with the passenger-side airbag as well in the Std.(O) variant. Other than the passenger side airbag, the optional variant also includes seatbelt pretensioners and driver and co-driver sunvisor. The base variant misses out on some important and basic features like AC, power steering and manually adjustable ORVMs.
