Maruti’s newest offering, S-Presso, sits tightly between the Maruti WagonR and the Alto K10. In terms of pricing, sizes and features it just fits as a gap between the entry-level hatchback and the spacious one.
So, here we put the Maruti S-Presso against the Maruti WagonR, to get a clear idea of how both of them are different from each other. We have compared both of them in terms of engine specifications, prices, features and dimensions.

The S-Presso is sort of a tall-boy, but the original one is the WagonR. As you see, the S-Presso is shorter in length, width, height and the ground clearance.
