Maruti Baleno has been in India for a while now, with its interior looking a bit old. However a Tesla-style touchscreen easily modernizes the cabin
In the Indian automotive market, you usually can get a multitude of trim levels for on single model, from bargain bin to top of line feature-packed variants. Take the Maruti Baleno for example, its prices range from Rs 5.70 lakh up to Rs 9.03 lakh, ex-showroom respectively. With a difference of over Rs 3 lakh between the variants respectively, you will see a marked difference in the number of features and goodies you get in them. But luckily, India has a vast and varied aftermarket that will provide you with basically anything you can think of. Here we have a video that shows multiple options for aftermarket infotainment systems that you can fit for your Baleno.
The video has been uploaded by Musafir AKA Joshi over on their YouTube channel which shows android touchscreen infotainment systems from Hypersonic systems mounted on a Maruti Baleno. The video shows 4 different systems with the flagship being a new 9.25-inch vertical infotainment system that mimics the likes we see on Tesla and Volvo currently. All the systems we see here are powered by Android with the 9-inch flatscreen getting inbuilt Apple Carplay and Android Auto functionality. All the infotainment comes with multiple brackets to fit various cars and comes with easy plug and play fittings which should make it very easy to replace. Additionally, you get the ability to map all your steering wheel-mounted buttons to the system.
The Maruti Baleno is powered by a 1.2-litre four-pot petrol which puts out peak power and torque figures of 83PS/115Nm respectively. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It is the premium hatchback offering from the brand but Maruti has managed to undercut most of its competitors like the new Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz, and the Volkswagen Polo in the value-for-money segment.
