Maruti Baleno is the top-selling premium hatchback in the country. The car is on sale in India since 2015. It is popular among the buyers for its amazing driving dynamics, performance and fuel-efficient motor. Most Maruti Baleno owners around the country are youngsters, and they like to customize it as per their preference. Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of examples of the customized Maruti Baleno and here’s one more Maruti hatchback, which has been tastefully modified by its owner.
This is claimed to be India’s first-ever Maruti Baleno to feature air suspension. The front fascia of the car gets a custom RS-themed wrap along with an aero body kit. It gets stock bumper up front, but one can see an aftermarket lip spoiler at the bottom. It also employs new front grille, aftermarket fog lamps, LED taillights and custom headlamps. This Maruti Baleno sits on 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, which are shod with 204/40 Accelera Phi-R tyres. The rear end of the sporty hatchback gets a new bumper along with a faux diffuser.
To make the hatchback look more eye-catching, the modifier has blacked out its A & B pillars, roof and side mirrors. The owner of this Maruti Baleno can alter the height of the car via air suspension, and it looks amazing at its lowest setting. The modifier has also upgraded the car mechanically by putting DixelEC brake pads, Code6 stage 1 ECU tune, stainless steel full system exhaust and a K& N air filter. Inside, the hatchback gets an upgraded audio system with tinted windows. The Maruti Baleno you see here is the 2017 model of the car. Earlier, it was offered with 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine. The former puts out 83 PS of power and 113 Nm of peak torque, while the latter is capable of shredding out power and torque outputs of 75 PS and 190 Nm. The petrol engine comes coupled to a 5-speed MT or CVT, while the diesel mill only comes paired with a 5-speed MT.
