how soon the government will come up with scraping option of vehicle older than 2005 to avail excise duty reduction to buy a new car. i have 2004 Baleno in very good condition sparingly used (only during vacation being a NRI) and i would like to know more about this programme.
There's no confirmed time frame yet, as the government is still in the process of acquiring the machines/technology for the scrap page scheme.
What is mean by 'Air Quality controller'. How it works?. I can see this in cardekho comparisons under comfort section. I almost booked a baleno. but when i compared it with S-cross in cardekho . I found baleno lack 'Air quality controller'. But s-cross have it. is it regarding air inside cabin quality ?
Hey, its great that you have booked the Baleno. Congratulations!!
Yes, you are right here. The Baleno does not have air quality control in it. The air quality control is part of Climatronic air conditioning system. It measures pollutants, in the form of oxidisable or reducible gases, in the air outside your car.
If the quality of the outside air drops - in a traffic jam or when driving through a tunnel, for example - the control system activates the Climatronic's air re-circulation mode, stopping polluted air from coming in and reducing the quality of air inside your car.
Both cars are quite nice to drive and compete neck to neck with each other. i20 has got some extra comfort features like glove box cooling, Air Quality Control and rear AC vents in the top spec variant. On the other front Baleno has got Voice control and a touch screen infotainment system and EBD which is standard across all the variants. Baleno is lighter as compared to i20 expect it to be a bit lighter on the steering. i20 on the other hand is heavy and is quite confident to drive over turns. The value for money quotient is higher with Baleno it is good to drive in cities. However, if you drive on highways mostly, you should pick i20.

I am afraid we will not be able to share the ex factory price as that is something which is set by the manufacturer and is never disclosed.
