Maruti Suzuki Baleno is one of the favourite hatchbacks of India that has already gained the hearts of millions. Competitors pressure has worked more than people’s demand to come up with a facelift of 2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
There are certain factors that you need to look for in the new Baleno:
Maruti Suzuki Baleno of 2019 is experiencing certain tweaks in the front of the car. The bumpers may get replaced with new ones and bumper grille with a premium and sporty look. You will get fog lamps on both ends of the bumper grille. The front grille will be stretched more to give a smiley look to the car.
There won’t be any major change in the rear bumper, but the car will get a sporty look from the back too. The headlights will not receive any change as of now. The ongoing version will still continue.
In 2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno, you will get to see a facelift in the new set of alloy wheels. Currently, the car has a multi-spoke alloy wheel design in gunmetal shade. The same design will be maintained in the new uplift but with a sportier look.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno features include tachometer, trip computer MFD, power window front and rear, power steering, steering adjust rake, aircon, climate control, remote fuel lid, folding rear seat, steering controls, rear defogger, rear wash wipe, cup holders, MP3, AUX, USB, steel wheel, etc.
There are 13 variants of the car available in the market. Maruti Suzuki Baleno variants include 4 variants of diesel and 9 variants of petrol.

- Baleno Zeta Diesel
- Baleno Alpha Diesel
Maruti Suzuki Baleno Petrol:

- Baleno Duel Jet Delta
- Baleno Duel Jet Zeta

Under the hood:
There won’t be any major change in the engine part. It will be 1.2-litre petrol unit with 83 PS of power and 1.3-litre diesel unit with 75 PS power. The RS proportion will also be the same as the ongoing model. However, there may be a diesel CVT transmission with Baleno and the petrol motor will continue with CVT and manual transmissions.
We have already experienced rich unit with a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, front and rear centre armrest, steering-mounted audio controls, and many more, in Baleno’s interior. However, there can some changes fit, finish and ambience inside the cabin, to give a more premium look and extraordinary comfort.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno price ranges from 5.46 – 8.78 lakhs. But this is the ex-showroom price of the car. In addition to this price, you need to pay for RTO, taxes, etc. and then comes the on-road price. So, the on-road price ranges from Rs. 6.03 – 9.79 lakhs.
The car has taken care of all the passengers in the car both in the front seat and rear seat. It is offering two airbags- driver and side passenger airbags, ABS, immobilizer, child locks, central locking and remote locking.
A few more new additions to the 2019 model are speed alert warning, seatbelt reminder for the front passengers and rear parking sensors. These are now being made mandatory by the Government of India.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno is an interesting offering in the market by two brands. Toyota Bharat and Maruti Suzuki have come to a collaboration with a brilliant engineering concept. Earlier also, we have seen such collaborative efforts like Vitara Brezza and Corolla Altis. So, one more such brilliant combination is going to hit in 2019. The original Toyota Yaris will appear in 2020, so either adopt this or wait for the Toyota one till 2020.
If we start counting the major competitors of Maruti Suzuki Baleno 2019, it will definitely be Hyundai Elite i20 and Ford Figo. In 2018, Elite i20 has got a facelift and some aggressive changes have been noticed with the new front grille and tailgate design. Ford Figo is also going to come up with a facelift, but this is expected to be the much-sophisticated outlook. The new Baleno 2019 will be a result of inspiration from both the offerings.
This new facelift was one of the most awaited introductions to the automobile industry. If you appreciate these changes or want some more from the brand, please write them on the comment section!
