The next variant of the Baleno comes at a hefty premium of more than Rs 80,000. It is also the entry-level option for the automatic powertrain for another Rs 50,000. Let’s find out if it offers enough value over the base trim to justify the jump in prices:

Why consider the Baleno Delta?

This variant of the Baleno is fitted with features that would make it easier to live with, such as the powered outside rearview mirrors, a rear parcel shelf, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with steering mounted controls. The Baleno Delta is also the most affordable AMT option which gets ESP and hill hold as well. The factory-fitted features covered by warranty offer added peace of mind.

Why skip the Baleno Delta?

While it does add some important features, the premium over the previous variant feels a bit too steep as it still isn’t a complete value package. If you’re considering it for the infotainment system or the wheel covers, you could get better value by fitting accessories to the base trim. Ideally, you should stretch your budget for the next variant of the premium hatchback.
