Only sometime ago we reported about the variants and features which will be offered on the new Maruti Baleno scheduled to launch on October 26th. Now, we have spied the upcoming premium hatch from Maruti on Pune roads without any camouflage. As you can see, the badges have been covered with tapes.
Draped in autumn orange shade, the Baleno seen here is without any wheel caps and features parking sensors at the rear. This is most probably a display vehicle heading to a NEXA showroom since the bookings have officially commenced.
Powering the new Baleno hatchback will be a 1.2 liter VVT petrol mill cranking out 84PS @ 6000 rpm and a peak torque of 115 Nm @ 4000 rpm. Diesel engine will be the trusty 1.3 liter DDIS mill pumping out 75PS @ 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 190 Nm @ 2000 rpm. Both the motors will come mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Also on offer will be a CVT on the petrol variant.
Bookings for the Baleno have already commenced. The Baleno will be available with the following color options :
- Solid fire red
- Premium urban blue
- Metallic premium silver
- Autumn orange
- Ray blue
- Pearl arctic white
- Granite grey
Stay tuned to Motoroids for a detailed review of the Baleno.
