Maruti Suzuki Alto, S-Presso now get dual airbags as standard fitment

Maruti Suzuki has discontinued the single airbag variants of the Alto and S-Presso. Both these small family cars are now offered with dual airbags as standard fitment across the range.

Maruti Suzuki has discontinued several variants of its entry-level family cars, Alto and S-Presso. The company has ceased the sales of the single airbag-equipped variants of these cars. As a result, the price of the base variant of the Maruti Suzuki Alto has gone up by almost Rs 80,000 while the S-Presso has witnessed an increment of Rs 14,000 in its base price.


The company has taken these steps as the MoRTH (Ministry of Road Transport and Highways) has now made it mandatory for all cars to have dual airbags as standard fitment across the range. Apart from this update, both the cars remain the same as before. The variant-wise new prices of the Maruti Suzuki Alto and S-Presso are mentioned in the tables below:
