Maruti Baleno is a highly popular model in the Indian car tuning scene. Here's one which is tuned to put a lot of hot hatches to shame. Take a look at it here.
Maruti Suzuki really excels in producing the crowd favourite models. It has the long-serving best-selling Maruti Alto, then comes the Maruti Swift, Vitara Brezza and the premium hatch segment’s leader Maruti Baleno. In reality, the Maruti Baleno is not only loved by the new and used car buyers but also equally adored by the modified car freaks. Previously, we’ve showcased various examples of the modified Baleno that come as a complete surprise to the motoring enthusiasts. Here’s another tastefully modified Baleno that is converted into a hot-looking lowrider that would surely turn any head.
The Maruti Baleno looks great in its original form. However, this modified Maruti Baleno is definitely an attention-seeker with the stellar modifications. It belongs to Mr Wasil Hussain. The colour cards were being played smartly on this modified Baleno with the contrasting black and white combination and some mild red highlights. This Baleno looks fantastic with a custom black-wrapped bonnet merged with the blacked-out front grille, giving a nice mix with the gloss black lower air dam.
The stock chrome treatment has been deleted to upscale the sportiness. The front bumper is revised with boomerang-shaped LED lights at both ends that look totally impressive. The upgraded headlights of the Alpha trim do give the hatchback a meaner look. The factory-fitted wheels have been replaced by the 17-inch 8.5J infinity unit shod with 225/45 Maxxis tyres. Also, instead of the regular air filter, this little beast employs the HPI Megamax option that helps in improving the performance. Lastly, the modified Baleno gets a custom exhaust system with HKS end-can. The aftermarket spoiler is utilized at the rear and compliments the sporty quotient of the car.
In terms of performance, the modified Baleno is powered by the regular 1.2-litre 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine. In the stock guise, this gasoline burner is capable of producing 83 PS of peak power and 113 Nm of max torque and comes mated to either a 5-speed MT or a CVT. We are not sure if there’s any tweak to the engine as there’s no information of the same. Regardless, from the look of it, this modified Baleno looks superb as a fast racing car and these modifications can definitely catch everyone's attention.
