Bookings for Maruti Suzuki's premium hatchback, Baleno, have crossed the 100,00 mark in just 4 months. The Baleno was launched last year during the festive season of Dusherra and Diwali.
In the 4 months the Baleno has been on sale in the country, the new Maruti Baleno has been going toe to toe with the Hyundai i20 and managed to upstage its rival in the month of December.
The Baleno hatchback is currently offered with the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines found on the Swift hatchback.
A faster variant of the Baleno called the Baleno RS which is powered by a brand new 1.2-litre boosterjet was introduced at the 2016 Auto Expo. The Baleno RS is expected to launch during the festive season of 2016.
