You can see that the Baleno automatic is now much more affordable than the pre-facelift model. That's because the CVT has been traded in for a cheaper and more fuel efficient, AMT gearbox. 

The new Baleno has been redesigned, making it look more premium. The fascia has been revamped with a new honeycomb-pattern like grille with a chrome surround, a refreshed bumper, and new LED lighting (comprising LED projector lights, DRLs with three LED elements, and LED fog lamps).

The side profile remains unchanged, save for the new 16-inch dual-tone alloys and the chrome door line. At the back, you see new LED taillights, a chrome garnish for the boot, and a tweaked bumper. While there aren’t many changes, they are noticeable.

The cabin also gets a fresh lease of life, covered in a dual-tone black-and-blue theme. The dashboard styling has been refreshed, and it now gets a tri-zone layer. Some new elements onboard include a flat-bottom steering wheel, climate control panel, and AC vents.

Maruti has put the 2022 Baleno in league with the Hyundai i20, especially in terms of features. We reckon this is one of the most feature-laden Marutis to date, offering segment-first equipment like a pop-up head-up display and a 360-degree camera.

The hatch also gets rain-sensing wipers, a 9-inch SmartPlay Pro+ touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car technology with limited remote-operation features, integrated Alexa support, Arkamys-tuned sound system, cruise control, an updated instrument cluster, rear AC vents, rear fast-charging USB ports, and 60:40 rear split seat. 

Safety seems to have been in focus for the new Baleno, as it’s the first Maruti to feature six airbags (limited to the Zeta and Alpha variants), ESP (electronic stability programme), and hill-hold assist (only for AMT). Standard safety features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, front seat belt reminders, rear parking sensors, and a high-speed alert system.

Under the bonnet, we get the 1.2-litre DualJet VVT petrol engine, paired with manual and AMT options. There’s no mild-hybrid tech on offer but the Baleno does get an idle-start/stop system. The manufacturer claims that the hatch gets an updated suspension setup, new hydraulic clutch system, and improved NVH levels.

The new Baleno is available in six colour options: Nexa Blue, Pearl Arctic White, Opulent Red, Grandeur Grey, Luxe Beige, and Splendid Silver. All colours except for Nexa Blue and Pearl Arctic White are new.

Maruti is offering the updated hatch through subscription as well, starting from Rs 13,999 a month. The new Baleno continues to be a rival to the likes of the Hyundai i20Tata AltrozHonda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. It’s rebadged compadre, the Toyota Glanza, is also set to receive similar upgrades soon.
