Maruti Baleno Recalled In India — Free Service Campaign For ABS Software Inspection

Maruti Suzuki has issued a recall of its Baleno hatchback in the Indian market. The Maruti Baleno recall is part of a free service campaign to inspect the actuator assembly ABS software on the premium hatchback.

As part of the recall in India, Maruti Suzuki has recalled 3,757 affected units, all manufactured between the 6th December 2018 to 4th February 2019. The inspection and updating will be done free of cost to the customers across all Maruti service centres in the country.

Maruti Baleno owners can also cross-check if their cars are among those affected on the company website. Customers can go to the important customer information tab on the website, fill in their chassis numbers to confirm if their cars are among the ones affected.

The Maruti Baleno is one of the premium hatchback offerings from the brand in India. The Baleno is sold exclusively through the brand's premium Nexa dealerships in the country. Maruti recently gave the Baleno and the Baleno RS a mid-life facelift.

The new Maruti Baleno facelift comes with a number of subtle tweaks to the design of the hatchback, along with a few additional features and equipment. With the facelift, Maruti further hopes to improve the sales of the already popular hatchback in India.

Apart from the Baleno facelift, Maruti Suzuki also launched the all-new Wagon R hatchback in the Indian market at a starting price of 4.19 lakh, ex-showroom.

The new Wagon R also comes with two petrol engine options: the 1.0-litre petrol from the previous generation and the bigger 1.2-litre unit as well.

The Indian carmaker is also working towards the launch of the Ignis facelift for the Indian market. The new Maruti Ignis facelift (2019) is all set to be launched in India. The entry-level premium hatchback has already been spotted arriving at dealerships ahead of its launch soon.
