Here's Why The New Age Maruti Suzuki Baleno Should Be Your Premium Hatchback Of Choice

By DriveSpark Bureau

In 2015, Maruti Suzuki revealed the Baleno premium hatchback to the country. Since then, the Baleno has become an iconic figure on Indian roads and has gained quite a following in the country's premium hatchback segment. The Maruti Suzuki Baleno currently dominates the UA2 segment of the Indian car market with 26% market share and is the nation's No. 1 premium hatchback.

Earlier this year, Maruti Suzuki updated its premium hatchback revealing the Baleno in an even Bolder and Tech-focused avatar with multiple first-in-class features and a host of connected tech that make it an even more desirable car for those looking to buy a premium hatchback today.

Since its launch earlier this year, the New Age Baleno has garnered over 2 lakh bookings with over 60% of customers opting for the higher-spec variants. Till date, over 1 lakh customers have already welcomed the New Age Baleno into their homes.

The New Age Baleno draws you in with its boldest and most expressive design ever. The dapper design of the new Baleno is further accentuated by its dynamic stance, strong shoulders, and sharp character lines. The front end of the New Age Baleno is dominated by the all-new NexWave Grille which features a chrome accent strip that accentuates the wider and more aggressive look of the premium hatchback. Other standout design features that instantly catch your eye are the all-new LED projector headlights with NEXTre' LED DRLs and the new Rear Combination Lamps. The New Age Baleno rides on a set of snazzy 16-inch precision-cut alloy wheels.

Step inside the new age Baleno and you'll be greeted by the premium hatchback's bold new tech-focused outlook. Sitting right above the steering wheel is the New Age Baleno's segment-first Head Up Display which displays the Speed, RPM, Fuel Economy, AC functions, and warning notifications in colour with multi-display options in your line of sight.

The Head Up Display allows owners to concentrate on driving the all-new Baleno especially in situations like crazy traffic jams without having to move his/her eyes from the road.

Another segment-first feature comes in the form of the all-new 360 view camera. This makes use of multiple cameras placed around the car to give the driver a 3D view of the car and its surroundings.

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno's 360 view camera allows drivers to manoeuvre around and park in tight areas like busy city markets, which would usually be a chore, with absolute ease. Parking is made even easier by steering-based dynamic gridlines and the approaching object detection sensors that alert drivers when any obstacle gets too near the Baleno.

The New Age Baleno sports a 9-inch high definition Smartplay Pro+ infotainment display. The large touchscreen infotainment display offers connectivity options in the form of both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for those wishing to connect their phones and apps to the Baleno. The SmartPlay Pro+ also features voice controls that allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road while getting connected to their favourite people, apps and tunes.

Speaking of tunes, the SmartPlay Pro+ infotainment display comes connected to a brilliant audio system that features a premium acoustic tuning experience in the form of Surround Sense powered by ARKAMYS. The audio system allows you to play your favourite tunes when you're on the go with the family or friends, ensuring everyone inside the Baleno enjoys the trip to the nearby mall or the long journey to your weekend destination.

The New Age Baleno also sports the next-gen Suzuki Connect system. This in-built connected car system from Maruti Suzuki is an advanced telematics solution with a host of safety & security functions while also allowing real-time monitoring of the new Baleno.

The Suzuki Connect app also allows owners access to trip and driving behaviour reports. Owners can remotely operate the Baleno's headlamps, hazard lights, doors, alarm, and engine immobilizer directly from the app. Owners can also connect to the Suzuki Connect app using Amazon's Alexa assistant or by using a compatible smartwatch.

The Baleno also features a whole load of convenient features including the likes of rear AC vents along with both USB-A and USB-C charging ports for those sitting at the rear allowing them to keep their smart devices charged at all times.

The new Maruti Suzuki Baleno also packs a host of safety features including 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP and Hill Hold Assist among others that ensure your loved ones are kept as safe as possible.
