Maruti Baleno Variants

The Maruti Baleno has taken the Indian automotive market by storm. It comes in four variants in both petrol and diesel namely: Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. An automatic transmission option (CVT) is available with the top-three variant of the petrol model. Where Sigma is a perfect choice for someone who is newly making a move into the premium hatchback segment from an entry level car, Alpha is dedicated to those who are buying probably their second car or are buying a hatchback because they are easier to manage in growing traffic.  

As many of our readers struggle to decide on which variant of Baleno to buy, here is a comprehensive variant description of Baleno which will help you make an informed buying decision.
