After that, the car makers updated the mini SUV and offered two airbags for the front seat passengers as a standard feature. This model is being currently on the sale in the Indian car market. During the test for the Safe Car for Afric Program, the S-Presso scored a three-star safety ranking for adult occupant protection and a two-star rating for child protection.
