A frutier version of the recently launched Maruti Baleno hatchback made an appearance here at the 2016 Auto Expo. In a concept stage yet, this go fast version could go on sale by late 2016.
The Baleno RS is powered by a 1.0L Boosterjet engine that promises juicy performance from all its 3 cylinders, packing a 112 bhp punch and 175 Newtons of twist. Understandably, the Maruti Baleno RS will only be available in the top-of-the-line alpha variant.
Go fast visual changes on the outside include a different looking rear bumper that embeds honeycomb finish and blacked out alloy wheels.
The front grille on the Baleno RS sports a mesh pattern, while the air dam has lost a few of its slats. On the inside, sportier seats and pedals are the only differentiating factors.
