Maruti Suzuki has launched the facelifted 2019 Baleno premium hatchback in Goa. The facelift comes after 5 years of the premium hatchbacks launch in the Indian market.
From the design side, the Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz rivalling hatchback receives a fresh makeover in the form of cosmetic changes to its face. It now gets a sporty new front grille with 3D design flanked by LED projector headlamps and daytime running lamps.
There’s also a new design for the front bumper that comes with wider air dam along with separate housings for the fog lamps. On the flipside, the rest of the design is unchanged but it does ride on new 16-inch precision cut two tone alloy wheels.
Step into the inside and you will be greeted by the same black interiors with premium blue detailing and dual tone fabric design. However the 2019 Baleno now comes equipeied with an advanced 7-inch Smartplay Studio inforrtainment system. The system is said to have an edge over the interface we are used to seeing on most and every Maruti Suzuki launched lately. It does get Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and combines the vehicles and cloud based services for a delightful experience.
Under its hood, the 2019 Baleno is powered by the same 1.2 litre petrol and 1.3 litre diesel engines. The 1.2 litre petrol motor produces 62 Kw @ 6600rpm and 115 Nm of torque at 4000rpm. On the other hand the diesel mill churns out 55.2 Kw @ 4000rpm and 190 Nm at 2000rpm. Transmission options range from a 5-speed manual for both engine options, with the petrol benefiting from a CVT automatic as well
Maruti Suzuki has also adhered to the up-coming safety regulations by updating the 2019 Baleno with ABS, EBD, dual airbags, ISOFIX child safety seat mounts and rear parking sensors as standard on all variants of the car.
The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno can be purchased in 6 exciting paint shades that include Nexa blue, Premium silver, Artic white, Magma grey, Phoenix orange and Autumn orange.
