Maruti Suzuki Baleno is a very popular car in India and the carmaker is all set to launch the 2019 Baleno soon. The company has announced that its Nexa dealership chain has commenced accepting bookings for the updated model. At the moment, bookings for the facelift have opened up with an initial payment of Rs 11,000. The company expects to launch the model later this month or early next month.
The new Baleno has a new and aggressive front design and will compete with Hyundai i20 Elite, Honda Jazz and the upcoming hot-hatch from Tata Motors. Speed alert system, co-driver seat belt reminder & rear parking assist sensors are additional safety features. These features are over and above the standard dual airbags, child seat restraint system (ISOFIX), pre-tensioner and force limiter seat belts and ABS with EBD.
Last week, Maruti Suzuki had announced a price change for select models owing to the increase in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates, among others.
The price change varies across models and ranges up to Rs 10,000 (ex-showroom – Delhi), the company had said, adding that the new prices were effective from January 10, 2019.
Since 2016, Baleno has featured among India’s top-selling cars. The company has sold over 5.2 lakh units of the model cumulatively till date.
