Maruti Baleno: What to expect

Maruti has revealed details of its upcoming hatchback, the Baleno ahead of its official launch on October 26, 2015. As mentioned in our earlier reports, the Baleno will be sold via Maruti’s Nexa premium outlets and will rival the likes of the i20 and the Jazz.   The Baleno will come with two engines, the 1.2-litre 83.1bhp petrol (manual and CVT gearbox option) and the 1.3-litre 73.9bhp diesel (manual gearbox only).   It measures 3,995mm in length, 1,745mm in width, 1,500mm in height and sports a 2,520 mm wheelbase. With a 37-litre fuel tank, the diesel car weighs in at 960kg, while the petrol manual variant weighs a maximum of 890kg. This means that the Baleno is lighter than the Swift hatchback even though it is dimensionally bigger.   Maruti has given the Baleno 185-section, 15-inch wheels as standard, with the top-end variant getting bigger 16-inch alloys. The Baleno’s exteriors will be available in six colour options. As far as safety features go, all variants of the Baleno come with ABS, EBD and dual front airbags as standard.   Here’s a look at some of the features on offer on the new Baleno:   Maruti Baleno Sigma •         Dual front airbags •         ABS with EBD •         Power windows (front only) •         Power steering with tilt function •         Gear shift indicator •         Rear parcel tray •         AC with heater •         Central locking •         LED tail-lamps •         Driver seat-belt reminder warning   Maruti Baleno Delta •         Power windows (front and rear) •         Audio with FM/MP3/CD/Bluetooth/AUX/USB •         Rear wiper with defogger •         AC with Climate control •         Power folding and adjustable wing mirrors with indicators •         Rear parking sensors •         Steering-mounted audio controls •         60:40 split rear seat •         Keyless entry •         CVT gearbox variant (petrol only) •         Chrome surround for front grille   Maruti Baleno Zeta •         Leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob •         Telescopic steering wheel •         Automatic headlamps with follow-me-home function •         Alloy wheels •         Driver’s seat height adjust •         Keyless entry and go with push button start •         Front fog lamps •         Chrome-finish door handles •         Glovebox, boot and front footwell illumination. •         Multi-function display with colour TFT   Maruti Baleno Alpha •         Projector headlamps •         Reverse camera •         SmartPlay infotainment with Apple CarPlay (a segment first) •         Navigation system •         Voice command   Hari Menon   Photo gallery
