The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Baleno will sport a large mesh grille, a revised front bumper with a large air dam, round fog lamp enclosures, and swept-back projector headlights with LED DRLs. It will be flanked by indicator-mounted ORVMs, B-pillars, and designer alloy wheels. A shark-fin antenna, bumper-mounted reflectors, and wrap-around LED taillamps with an L-shaped design will be available on the rear end.
The upcoming Baleno will run on a 1.2-liter VVT petrol engine that makes 82hp/113Nm and a 1.2-liter DualJet petrol motor with mild-hybrid technology that generates 89hp/113Nm. Transmission duties should be taken care of by a 5-speed manual and an AMT gearbox.
The Maruti Suzuki Baleno will have a spacious 5-seater cabin, featuring horizontally-positioned V-shaped AC vents, a head-up display, a reworked dashboard, and a flat-bottom power steering wheel. It will pack a digital instrument cluster and a "free-standing" touchscreen infotainment panel with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Six airbags, a rear-view camera, crash sensors, and an engine immobilizer will ensure the passengers' safety.
The pricing and availability details of the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Baleno in India will be disclosed at the time of its launch. However, it is likely to carry a premium over the outgoing model, which begins at Rs. 6.14 lakh (ex-showroom).
