The Baleno continues to be offered in five variants, but with just one petrol engine

The best-selling premium hatchback in India has got its most significant update till date. The new Maruti Baleno has been launched with refreshed exterior styling, a revamped dashboard and a wave of new premium features. It even gets mechanical updates in the form of the latest version of Maruti’s petrol engine, bigger brakes and a new suspension setup. With all the changes, it might be hard to identify the right variant of the Baleno for you and that’s where we can help. Let’s start by looking at the specifications of the updated hatch:
