The Maruti Baleno is the B+ segment hatchback, added the arrogant virtues by Maruti Suzuki such as iconic body, powerful stance and innovative features. In the range of premium hatchbacks, Baleno is the most recent model from Maruti Suzuki and positioned above the current Maruti Suzuki Swift.  It seems to be bigger, stronger and the dynamic new look compared to the B-segment hatchbacks.  The car made by the enhanced protection and the liquid flow design including the dominant styling and highly defined curves. The three key elements, energy wave, synchronization and elegance make the Baleno more powerful, robust and trendy in the global auto market.

The new hatchback is manufactured in India and the company would be started the exportation of the same product (India-made) to the more than 100 global countries from January 2016. It is the opening hatchback to be exported to the Japan market by MSIL, the unit of Japanese car maker, Suzuki and the Baleno expected to be introduced as a Suzuki Baleno in the global countries.  

The hatchback unveiled at the Frankfort Motor Show in September, 2015 and the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The basic versions of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno are Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha, comes with the petrol and diesel fuel options.  The two powerful engines return the ARAI rated best economies 27.39/kmpl on the diesel variants and 21.4kmpl on the petrol versions.
