Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Maruti Baleno

    • LED projector headlamps from Delta variant onwards. LEDs usually offer better visibility than halogens or bi-xenon units.
    • Automatic climate control from Delta variant onwards. unlike a manual AC, automatic climate control allows the user to maintain a set temperature inside the cabin as per their needs.
    • ISOFIX child seat anchors are standard across the range. This lets you attach a child seat on the back seat of the hatchback to offer kids below the age of 10 better safety.

    Volkswagen Polo

    • Punchy turbo engine
    • Solid build quality
    • Enthusiast handling
    • Clean and classic looks

    Maruti Baleno

    • Could have been more rear passenger-centric: Misses out on side and curtain airbags, rear AC vents and rear armrest.

    Volkswagen Polo

    • Missing features like a reverse camera
    • Lack of rear seat space
    • Priced at a premium
    • DSG automatic no longer available
    • No diesel engine option
