The Maruti Baleno is a premium hatchback offering from the brand, sold exclusively through their exclusive NEXA outlets. The car offers upmarket interiors and features, which is almost on par with those sold in European countries. The petrol avatar of the Baleno is through the trusted 1.2-litre Maruti engine; same as on the Swift. While this provides decent performance, the Baleno is also available in a more sportier avatar, the Baleno RS. The Baleno RS is powered by a 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbocharged petrol engine. The RS variant further offers unique styling bits all around the car, to help differentiate it with the standard model.
