While Honda Jazz clocked a 15 per cent increase on a YoY basis, the VW Polo registered a downfall of 4 per cent. The Altroz, however, fails to be a part of this tally because it was launched in January this year. Overall, Maruti sold 1,47,912 cars in September this year, whereas, in the same month last year, the sales figures were at 1,10,454 units only. This showcases a YoY growth of over 34 per cent.

Helping the Baleno score big numbers on the sales curve is its affordable starting price of 5.63 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Also, it comes with a powerful yet frugal 1.2L 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol motor. It is offered in two states of tunes – 83 PS and 90 PS. However, the peak torque in both the iteration remains identical at 113 Nm. The gearbox options on the Baleno include a 5-speed MT and a CVT. The Baleno returns an ARAI-claimed mileage of 23.87 kmpl with the manual gearbox and 19.56 with the CVT in place.
