Baleno highlights

March 3, 2017: Maruti Suzuki has launched the Baleno RS in India at Rs 8.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Customers can book one with a refundable amount of Rs 11,000 on the Nexa website. The performance-oriented version of the popular hatchback is powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which produces over 102PS of power and 150Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Visually, it stays true to the concept showcased at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo. It has a claimed fuel efficiency of 21.1kmpl and features 16-inch wheels with disc brakes on all four wheels.

Launched in October 2015, the Baleno is Maruti's one of the best selling models having sold over 1 lakh units in 2016. It is offered with both the petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.2-litre petrol motor produces 84PS and 115Nm, while the 1.3-litre diesel pumps out 75PS and 190Nm. Besides the standard five-speed manual with petrol and diesel engine options, the petrol can also be had with an optional CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic gearbox. It is available in four trims – Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha – and in seven colour options.  It rivals the Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and the VW Polo. The Maruti Baleno delivers a claimed mileage of 21.4kmpl for the petrol and 27.39kmpl for the diesel.

    Maruti Baleno 1.2 Alpha
    When the Baleno was launched in 1999 in India as a sedan, it's sales were significantly lower than both the Maruti Esteem and the Hyundai Accent. Therefore it was withdrawn from the Indian market in 2007. Maruti, however, decided to dust off the Baleno label and re-launch it as a hatchback in 2015. It was an immediate hit, clocking a much higher than expected sales and a huge order backlog, which encouraged further production. Since it's a Premium car, it is sold through the upmarket  read more 39

    I own Baleno Zeta 1.2 ltr Petrol Urban Blue Color car. It's a great car on highway/state road and hill stations too.

Riding comfort is so great with regards to steering, seating, rear seating, suspension, AC, ignition sound and when you rise the torque in 1st to 3rd gears are so great and feels like I am in a racing car.

Maruti Baleno review

Mass-market, reliable, fuel efficient and cheap cars. Well not cheap but reasonably priced. These are the character traits that come to mind when you look at a Maruti Suzuki ‘S’ badge. You would rarely associate it with being premium or glamorous. Maruti has tried, multiple times, to have a shot at the premium segment. They’ve never really been able to shake off their existing image. Case in point, the Kizashi. At around 17 lacs, the only thing deterring people was the badge. A similar story with the Grand Vitara. The S-Cross too is placed at a high premium. It saw a decent opening but numbers have been falling consistently. Maruti has learnt its lesson after the whole Nexa-S-Cross debacle and has priced the Baleno just above the Swift.

Does the Baleno have what it takes to take Maruti ahead in the already fierce premium hatchback segment? Or is it just a jazzed up Swift? Read ahead to find out!

Things We Like in Baleno

  • The long length and wheelbase of the car have translated into huge space in the cabin as well as the boot.
  • Premium features such as projector headlamps and daytime running lights.
  • Dual Front Airbags, ABS & EBD (Anti-Lock Brakes & Electronic Brake Distribution) standard across all variants.
  • Liquid Flow design works well. One of the better looking Maruti cars.
  • Priced aggressively when compared to its competitors.

Things We Don't Like in Baleno

  • No rear AC vents.
  • The diesel is the most underpowered of the lot. At 75PS, it is 15PS short of the VW Polo and Elite i20 and 25PS short of the Honda Jazz.
  • Being sold only through Nexa Dealerships. They are limited in number as compared to the regular Maruti dealerships.

Stand Out Features

  • Great rear legroom.

  • We love the futuristic design on the instrument cluster with graphic readouts.

CarDekho Verdict

The Baleno offers good fit and finish compared to any other car in the Maruti portfolio. The car looks beautiful from the outside and isn’t too bad on the inside either. While the diesel may seem underpowered, it makes up with a lightweight body and splendid fuel economy. Something that Maruti has always been synonymous with. In terms of performance, it falls in the middle of the segment and the car is easy to drive in city conditions.

One of the biggest advantages of having the Baleno over the completion is the access to Maruti’s unmatched after sales and service network. 

"The Baleno offers the perfect balance of performance, features & quality. "

The Baleno is a step up from the Swift in terms of what it offers. It’s perfect for someone who is looking for something more than the Swift and at the same time wants to retain the peace of mind of owning a Maruti Suzuki.
