UPDATED: Enough with the Rumors, Here are the Official Prices, Variants of the 2020 Suzuki S-Presso and 2020 XL7


UPDATE: Read the complete specs of the XL7 here, and the S-Presso here. (3/13).

In the lead up to the launch of their two all-new crossover offerings this month—the S-Presso mini-SUV and the XL7 7-seater small SUV, Suzuki Auto Philippines has had it with so-called leaks and has finally revealed the official pricing for these two much-awaited models.

First up, there’s the 2020 Suzuki S-Presso mini-SUV; this de facto replacement to Suzuki’s Alto is priced at P 518,000 for the sole GL M/T variant.

Powered by a 1.0-liter K10B 3-cylinder engine, it makes 68 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 90 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. The sole transmission on offer is a 5-speed manual. Though the power outputs don’t seem impressive, it’s worth noting that the S-Presso only weighs a lightweight 726 kilograms thanks to its HEARTECT platform.

In terms of handling, it features front MacPherson Struts and a rear Torsion Beam Axle while at all four corners are 13-inch steelies (with full covers) shod with 145/80R13 tires.

Features include an “SUV inspired front fascia”, twin chambered headlamps, and C-shaped taillights. Inside, it also comes with a center-mounted gauge cluster which Suzuki calls Dynamic Center Console, a high-seating position, and centrally-located power window switches. In terms of safety, it comes with airbags and ABS with EBD as standard.

Meanwhile, the Suzuki XL7 7-seater sub-compact SUV go against the likes of the Honda BR-V, Toyota Rush, and upcoming Mitsubishi Xpander Cross with its P 1.068-million price tag for the only variant, the 1.5 GLX A/T.

Based off the Ertiga 7-seater MPV, the XL7 carries the same K15B engine making 105 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Unlike the Ertiga that comes in both manual and automatic flavors, the XL7 comes only with a 4-speed automatic. And while it rides on the same platform, the XL7 boasts of 200 mm of ground clearance and 195/60R16 wheels at all four corners.

Feature-wise, the XL7 comes chockfull of standard features such as LED headlights, roof rails, and blacked out roof pillars outside; and push-button start/stop, steering wheel-mounted controls, and automatic climate control inside. Safety equipment comes in the form of dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, and even Electronic Stability Control with hill hold assist.

Marking the announcement of the S-Presso and XL7’s official prices, Suzuki Auto Philippines is offering a P 15,000 and P 30,000 discount respectively for all reservations done between today and March 18, 2020.

In both cases, to avail of the special price, a P 5,000 minimum reservation free is required (can be done through cash, check, or credit card). The discount is then deducted upon full cash payment or bank P.O., or in the case of financing, full downpayment. Customers must take delivery of their S-Presso or XL7 on or before April 30, 2020.
