Maruti Baleno Latest Updates

Maruti Suzuki has recalled the Baleno due to a fuel pump motor issue. 11,851 units of the Baleno have been affected.The units affected were manufactured between July 30, 2019 and November 1, 2019. Maruti will be contacting the owners of the affected units.

Maruti Baleno Key Highlights

Features: The new Maruti Suzuki Baleno gets 16-inch alloy wheels, LED projector headlamps, and LED fog lamps. It also has a new cruise control system and segment-first head-up display (HUD) for essential driver’s instrumentation. Other new equipment includes rear AC vents, auto-dimming inside rearview mirror, and a 9-inch SmartPlay Pro+ HD infotainment screen paired with an Arkamys-tuned Surround Sense audio system.

Maruti Baleno Pros and Cons

Baleno Advantages

Spacious and practical interior, lost of highlight features, refined and fun to use petrol engine, comfortable ride quality.

Baleno Disadvantages

AMT is jerky to use at times, not as sophisticated as a CVT, the boot loading lip is high, not a sharp handling car.

Baleno Expert's Conclusion

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno is stll a value-for-money family hatchback that’s practical, well-equipped, efficient and easy to drive.

Maruti Baleno Expert Review

By the time you read this, there'll be little mystery to the new Maruti Suzuki Baleno. NEXA's premium hatch has been extremely popular since 2015, with one Baleno selling every three minutes since launch.

However, there's an essential question that the brochure won't necessarily answer. Does this feel like a brand new car, the way an "all-new" Baleno should?



Yes, the new Baleno is available with six airbags in the top two (Zeta & Alpha) variants. In addition to dual airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist and ISOFIX as standard, it also gets ESP with hill-hold in the top-spec manual and all the automatic transmission variants. 


The Baleno has also gained some weight by about 55kg - not from stress-eating due to the pandemic or a potential WW III. However, Maruti hasn't said it's from structural enhancements either! While some of the new features do contribute to the gains, it's also down to changes with the body panels and interior.

So while the safety credentials have improved, whether that reflects with a better crash safety rating than before is anyone's guess for now.



Nope, Maruti has, in fact, bid adieu to the CVT in favour of an automated manual transmission (AMT). Cutting straight to the chase, we like this transmission for the cost-centric technology it is. Maruti's done a great job with their AMT tuning so far, and the Baleno's no different. 


It doesn't feel lazy or dimwitted, unlike many automated manuals, and it's intuitive as well. It's also a smooth marriage with the engine's capabilities, enabling the transmission to offer good usability in smooth-flowing traffic, taking the right decisions as to when it should downshift or maybe hang on to the same gear.

FYI: Claimed fuel-efficiency: 22.35kmpl | 22.94kmpl (MT | AMT)

But you will feel the gear changes. In most drive scenarios, they'll be felt like a light sway, but in crawling traffic (1st to 2nd gear) or if you pin the throttle to gain speed quickly, the head nod is impossible to ignore. 


Yes, it's an excellent AMT, but it is an AMT at the end of the day. And considering how smooth the Baleno's CVT was to drive, this is a step-down in the experience. Even the best broadband connection isn't fibre internet. It's fine as a beginner's automatic, but it won't enhance your experience if you already own a two-pedal car from a lower segment.



Yes and no. The DualJet petrol engine is a good example of how a low-displacement naturally aspirated engine can be both usable and fun. For regular drives, it's smooth, refined and peppy enough (90PS/113Nm), making overtakes easy. It's also an engine you can enjoy getting to the limit and keeping there, especially with a raspy four-cylinder engine note that'll make you giggle. Good thing the AMT's manual mode lets you keep the motor on the boil when you need to.

FYI: There is no mild-hybrid system anymore. The Baleno only features auto engine-start/stop

The fun aspect of the Baleno is with the powertrain, though, and not so much with the dynamics package. The steering is light to use, but it's rather slow, not particularly engaging, and there is evident body roll through corners. 



To state the obvious, the enthusiast is not the primary target of a car like this. It's for family car buyers and daily commuters who need something easy to use and comfortable - a job the Baleno does with a 10/10 score. 

FYI: The Baleno's brake discs are now larger, 14" diameter units (earlier 13")

Over damaged roads, the Baleno handles bumps and cracked roads excellently, where even some SUVs would have your eyeballs rattling. Maruti has given the suspension a little more travel, so while its ride was always appreciable, as an existing Baleno owner testified, it's even better now.




Inside, the Baleno does feel new. There's an extensive redesign with the dashboard, not only with how it's styled but also with the build and fitment quality. The plastics have a smoother finish while feeling more robust and premium. There's a greater sense of solidity in the cabin, and with the new look, it also feels like the Baleno has more of a personality inside. 


The space and practicality quotient remains the same, considering the car hasn't changed much in size. Even tall users will find the cabin roomy, and while the interior is still black, the sense of space isn't compromised. Oddly, while the boot space has gone down on paper (339->318 litres), the usable space is still the same, with the added benefit of 60:40 split-folding rear backrests. The boot can accommodate large suitcases, but the loading lip is high with a big drop from the boot lip to the boot floor.


There are some nice touches like vanity mirrors with lights for both front occupants, rear AC vents with two fast charging ports (USB + Type-C) and a front sliding armrest with storage. However, there's no rear armrest or cup holders for back seat occupants, no leatherette seats, and while the seat cushion is comfortable for city use, it's a little too soft and can make long trips less pleasant.



Not even close.

  • There are touchscreens for all but the base variant. The top-spec Alpha grade gets a 9-inch HD touchscreen labelled Smartplay Pro+. It gets Arkamys sound tuning for the six-speaker music system and supports Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. This screen does support over-the-air updates (OTA), something that can be used to make CarPlay and Auto work wirelessly, though, at present, you will need to plug in.

  • The screen may seem cluttered and data-heavy at first, but you have shortcuts below for easy access to the main functions.

  • The Baleno also comes with connected car tech that ticks the basics like door lock and light control, car tracking, geo-fencing, and speed alert, among other features.

  • There's also a head-up display that's actually quite handy. The digital speedometer, tachometer, AC displays, cruise control indicator, door ajar warning and even gear indicator (for the AMT) can be found here.

  • Finally, there's a segment-first 360-degree camera. While this isn't the most necessary thing for a car of this size, it does come in handy, especially on B-roads, where you may not have the clearest view ahead. It helped us on our shoot location where certain large rocks couldn't be seen from the driver's seat.



"So, is this a new generation or a facelift?" This question has popped into many minds, including ours. Well, much like the definitions of car body styles these days, the line here is blurred. You can certainly tell it's a Baleno. Not only have the dimensions remained nearly identical, the basic shape, platform and even most of the colour options are familiar.






New Baleno





Old Baleno






To spot the first change will need a keen-eyed observer. We're talking about the body panels, which are all-new and feel a bit sturdier, i.e. they don't flex as easily as before. But they aren't VW Polo stiff either. The LED projector headlights and LED taillights are new as well, with new light signatures in both. The front grille and bumper have been redesigned, and the Baleno gets LED fog lights in the top-spec trim.



The side profile looks almost exactly the same, but now sports new 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels in the Alpha trim and single-tone alloys of the same size in the Zeta.



So, coming back to that original question, does this Baleno feel like a brand new car? The kind of change you expect after a near-decade-long run?

Not exactly; this isn't the Elite i20 to the current i20 kind of change, and that may be a letdown for some. There are also some steps back, like the removal of the mild-hybrid and the switch from CVT to a brilliant but nonetheless AMT, especially when the competition seems to be going in the opposite direction. 


However, this Baleno redeems itself by maintaining its bang-for-buck appeal, asking for more or less the same money as before but offering more features, a better ride, and importantly, a more premium build, especially on the inside, while retaining the usability, space and practicality that we always liked in the Baleno. 

It may not be the revolution many expected, but it's largely the kind of evolution you'd appreciate.

Questions & Answers on Baleno

Answered by Zigwheels Expert

  • Most Relevant
Q. Is Tata Altroz better than Maruti Baleno?
  • Both the cars are good in their forte. The Tata Altroz fits right into the mix of premium hatchbacks. But because it does not deliver a step-up or wow experience over its rivals, it fails to set a new standard in the segment. The diesel does feel like a versatile unit and delivers a good drive on both highways and in the city. The long feature list is the practicality of the cabin with loads of storage and a good fit and finish. The balance of the Alpha Apc platform too raises the bar on comfort and handling in the segment. And finally, the looks, which definitely set a new standard in the segment. On the other hand, the new Baleno is still a safe and sensible choice. Now with the design changes, feature additions, and improved drive, it has become more desirable too. Some things could have been better though. Maruti Suzuki should have improved the seating comfort, given it a more powerful petrol engine option, and made more significant changes to the exterior to help it look like a brand-new car. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city and brand for dealership details.
Q. What is the fuel tank capacity of the Maruti Baleno?
  • The Maruti Suzuki Baleno has a fuel tank capacity of 37 litres in petrol and 55 litres in CNG.
Q. What is the mileage?
  • The Maruti Baleno mileage is 22.35 kmpl to 30.61 km/kg. The Automatic Petrol variant has a mileage of 22.94 kmpl. The Manual Petrol variant has a mileage of 22.35 kmpl. The Manual CNG variant has a mileage of 30.61 km/kg.
Q. Is it better than Baleno?
  • Both the cars are good in their forte. There’s a lot to like about the Fronx, and little to fault. It brings with it a likeable balance between a premium hatchback, a sub-compact SUV and a compact SUV. The Fronx is ticking the basics of style, space, comfort and everyday usability. A few more features or a smaller asking price would’ve made it a whole lot easier for us to recommend it. On the other hand, the new Baleno is still a safe and sensible choice. Now with the design changes, feature additions, and improved drive, it has become more desirable too. Some things could have been better though. Maruti Suzuki should have improved the seating comfort, given it a more powerful petrol engine option, and made more significant changes to the exterior to help it look like a brand-new car. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your city accordingly for dealershipdetails.
Q. Which is better, Tata Tiago NRG or Maruti Baleno?
  • Both the cars are good in their forte. The facelifted Tiago NRG borrows the standard model’s 86PS/113Nm 1.2-liter petrol motor. Facelifted Tata Tiago NRG is packed with features such as a 7-inch touchscreen Harman infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a digital instrument cluster, steering-mounted audio controls, push-button start with keyless entry, manual air conditioning, and power windows. Safety is taken care of by dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and a rear parking camera. On the other hand, the new Baleno is still a safe and sensible choice. Now with the design changes, feature additions, and improved drive it has become more desirable too. Some things could have been better though. Maruti Suzuki should have improved the seating comfort, given it a more powerful petrol engine option, and made more significant changes to the exterior to help it look like a brand-new car.
