Maruti S Presso against rivals


The S-Presso is not only the smallest in length, width and wheelbase but it also has the smallest boot and fuel tank in the segment. However, being the smallest in the segment has its own benefits, as the S-Presso turns out to be the lightest in this segment. The Kwid outperforms its competition with its huge boot space capacity, but the Ignis turns out to be the biggest and boldest as it is the longest, widest and tallest in the segment and also gets the biggest fuel tank. On the other hand, the ground clearance is the only thing that is common between these cars.
