Latest On Maruti Baleno
Maruti Suzuki has launched the updated version of the Baleno. While it doesn’t look drastically different compared to the car it replaces, it does get quite a few likeable updates. This includes a wider grille, new 16-inch machine-finished alloy wheels and a brand new front bumper. The headlamps too now feature LEDs instead of Xenon lighting. On the inside, Maruti has given the Baleno a new 7-inch touchscreen, the same unit we saw in the new WagonR. Other changes come in the form of a blue-black interior theme and dark metallic accents on the dashboard. Engine options remain unchanged with the 85PS 1.2-litre petrol and 75PS 1.3-litre diesel doing duty under the hood. In line with the upcoming safety norms, rear parking sensors, speed alert and seatbelt warning are now offered as standard. Maruti Suzuki has also rejigged the feature list in each variant, and the Delta seems more value for money than ever before.

Maruti Baleno Highlights
Maruti Suzuki’s premium hatchback just got an update. Sure, it isn’t anything groundbreaking, but there was very little wrong with the Baleno to begin with. With the update, the Baleno gets a sportier design, while retaining its strengths of a spacious cabin and loaded feature list. With the tried-and-tested engines, value-for-money pricing and massive service reach, the Baleno is a package that’s hard to resist.
Exterior and Interior
The Baleno debuted as the iK-2 Concept way back in 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show. Maruti Suzuki has given the hatchback a subtle update now, which deviates ever so slightly from the concept. There’s a new bumper that appears sportier, courtesy a revised enclosure for the foglamp and sharper creases. The grille has grown in size, and the layered effect looks posh too. Over to the sides, you’ll notice a set of new machine-finished 16-inch alloy wheels. A minor update comes in the form of LED lighting that replaces bi-xenon setup in the projector headlamps. With the RS variant, you get a sportier body kit that hopes to show-off the Baleno’s sporty side.
Inside the cabin, the Baleno now features a blue-black interior theme. The silver accents on the dashboard are now darker too. This, we feel, is a refreshing change from the beige-black setup most of its contemporaries use. It’s among the most spacious cabins in its class too, with rear seat kneeroom managing to eke past a few C-segment sedans as well. Yes, the small windows might make you feel hemmed in at times, but that’s not really a deal-breaker in our books. You also get 339 litres of boot space, which is ample for a modern nuclear family. But remember that the opening is high off the ground and narrow, so you’ll end up working the lower back while loading big or heavy luggage. In terms of features, Maruti Suzuki has changed the touchscreen on the top-spec Alpha variant. It’s still a 7-inch unit, but it’s the new ‘SmartPlay Studio’ unit we’ve seen in the new WagonR. Developed by Harman, this screen too supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features include a 6-speaker music system, automatic climate control, puddle lamps, a coloured TFT screen for the MID, and automatic headlamps. As far as safety is concerned, you get dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard. The 2019 Baleno also gets seatbelt reminder, a speed alert system, and reverse parking sensors as standard across variants.
The Baleno facelift engine options remain unchanged. There’s a 1.2-litre petrol motor and a 1.3-litre diesel. The diesel engine makes 75PS of power and 190Nm of torque, and comes paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. This engine is plagued by turbo lag, but once on the boil, it does deliver grins alongside efficiency. The 83PS/115Nm petrol motor loves it when you rev it to its redline. It’s smooth, refined and peppy, a combination that’s hard to say no to. Over the 5-speed manual, there’s an optional CVT too that bumps up the convenience quotient. There’s a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine under the bonnet of the RS variant. Sadly, it’s not as sporty as Maruti claims.
You get to choose between five Baleno variants - Sigma, Delta, Zeta, Alpha and RS. The base variant gets nothing more than the essentials such as manual air-conditioning and front power windows. It also misses out on a music system, which is why we recommend you skip this altogether. With the Delta, there’s a whole lot of added goodies, including LED projector headlamps, automatic climate control, reverse parking sensors, rear washer/wiper, and a 4-speaker audio system. Coming to the Zeta, this variant adds in some feel-good elements such as alloy wheels, a touchscreen infotainment system, push-button start/stop, automatic headlamps and an auto-dimming IRVM. With the Alpha, you additionally get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, UV cut glass, puddle lamps and a reverse parking camera. The feature list of the RS variant is identical to that of the Alpha.
Ford Figo: The Figo is an all-rounder that does a bit of everything. It’s spacious, well-equipped and, if you pick the diesel (especially in the S trim), it’s a hoot to drive as well. Did we mention it sips through a pinched straw all the time?
Hyundai Elite i20: The one that has it all! The Elite i20 brings a sense of class and features to this segment like no other. Premium build, loads of kit on offer, looks that turn heads and space for five. What more do ya need, eh?
Volkswagen Polo: Volkswagen’s Polo may not have set the sales charts on fire, but it has its own little fanclub. Primary reasons being the rock-solid build quality inside-out, and the fun-to-drive engines in the GT variants. It might seem a bit dated to some, but we aren’t complaining just as yet!
Honda Jazz: With space that would shame a few apartments in Mumbai, the Honda Jazz is a sensible hatch for the practical lot. The engines are refined, equipment levels are on par with its peers and it’s backed up by Honda’s reputation for its reliability and after-sales support.
You can’t really go wrong with the Baleno. It’s loaded, spacious, efficient and can be fun too! We wish for better build quality at certain places and a punchier tune for the diesel motor. Look past that and it’s a no-nonsense choice!
