Maruti has released a new CVT for the Maruti Baleno. The commercial video features the special appearance of the brand's ambassador, Ranvir Singh.
Maruti Baleno is one of the most important products of Maruti Suzuki in the hatchback segment. Positioned in the premium hatchback segment, Maruti Baleno is currently retailed via Nexa showrooms. It is competing against the likes of Hyundai i20, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. Recently, Maruti has released a new TVC for the Baleno. The commercial video stars Ranvir Singh, the Brand Ambassador for Nexa cars.
Maruti Baleno was first launched in 2015. Since its launch, the Maruti Baleno was given only some minor visual updates. Earlier, Maruti has updated the premium hatchback to meet the new BSVI emission norms. As a part of the transition, the Baleno also got some small cosmetic changes including a redesigned grille, revised front bumpers and a larger lower grille.
The latest commercial video highlights Baleno’s projector headlights, LED DRLs, and its overall stunning and bold design. On the side profile, the Baleno gets chrome inserts around the door handles and 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.
Even though the interior of the Maruti Baleno is not shown in the video, it is worth to note that Baleno can offer generous interior space along with various comfort and convenience features. The highlight interior features of this premium hatchback include an infotainment touchscreen, an analogue instrument cluster with digital MID, climate control, a multi-function steering wheel, and more.

In terms of power, Maruti Baleno is offered with two petrol engine choices. A 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit is capable of making 82 Bhp of maximum power and 113 Nm of maximum torque. On the other hand, the other engine which is a mild hybrid unit is more powerful with a power output of 90 BHP and 113 Nm. While the N.A petrol unit is available with both manual and CVT gearbox, the mild hybrid version is paired to a manual transmission only. Along with the BSVI updates, Maruti has discontinued the diesel engine. However, it is expected that Maruti will soon bring back the diesel engine to its product line-up. Maruti will reintroduce the 1.5-diesel engine on the Maruti Ertiga and Maruti Ciaz first. It is possible that Maruti Baleno will be the next to see the return of the diesel engine.
