Since its launch in October 2015, Maruti Baleno has been a great success. In October 2019, its sales number has crossed 6.5 lakh units.

The Maruti Baleno has been the top-selling premium hatchback in India since its launch. Until now, it has experienced an average monthly sales number of approximately 14,000 units with a market share of more than 27% in its segment. The facelifted Baleno was launched in January 2019; three months after that in April 2019, the vehicle got a BS-VI 1.2-litre VVT gasoline burner and a BS-VI mild-hybrid 1.2-litre DualJet gasoline burner. In the meanwhile, the 1.0-litre Boosterjet motor in the now-discontinued Baleno RS and the 1.3-litre oil-burner still comply with the BS-IV emission standards. The latter pair of engines will soon be discontinued when the stricter BS-VI norms come into effect.
