The Maruti Suzuki Baleno facelift has been launched in the country with 11 variants available in total. Let’s take a look at what these variants offer.
Being a premium offering from Maruti Suzuki, the Baleno has managed itself to run the competition in the sub-4-metre segment with several established rivals such as VW’s Polo, Hyundai Elite i20, and Honda’s Jazz. The Baleno has finally made its world debut in the Indian market with a thoroughly updated facelift, following the launch of Maruti Wagon R.
Maruti Suzuki has scheduled to roll out the Baleno via the premium Nexa dealership network, after the S-Cross. A handful of Nexa dealers have already accepted the bookings and received the stocks of the face-lifted car model.

The car model is available in four grades which are Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha with a choice of either diesel or petrol engine. Let’s check out what to expect from each variant.

In terms of the powertrain, the Baleno facelift still retains the powertrain setup which is underpinned from its predecessor.
The diesel variants are offered with a 1.3-litre turbocharged motor (75PS/190Nm) which is sourced from Fiat. The motor comes only with a 5-speed MT.
Meanwhile, the petrol variants receive the power from a rather underpowered 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated engine (84PS/115Nm). This engine comes mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or CVT.
The fuel efficiency of petrol is claimed to be at 21.4kmpl which is obviously less frugal compared to the diesel engine with 27.39kmpl.
The powertrain setup will still be retained from the predecessor
With the price ranging from Rs 5.45 lakh and Rs 8.77 lakh, the variants of Baleno all deserve the customers’ long-waited time as well as the great response rate.
