From a mid-size sedan to a premium hatchback, 'Baleno' nameplate has raised from the dead. The sedan’s design was not to everyone’s liking while Maruti Suzuki Baleno is beautifully developed. The sedan didn’t stand out when it comes to features compared to the segment but Baleno is gloating with stuff and its Apple Car Play is an industry first in the country according to the automaker. On the flipside, it’s entire engine options are similar to that of the Swift, and Swift motors are agile. And the brand new platform has made Baleno shed nearly 100 kilos compared to the Swift so the same engine options might not bug you much. Having said that, it still leaves something to desire as the rivals have risen. Booked it? Planning to buy it? It is launching a day after, let us take a look at all the stuff we have covered on the Maruti Suzuki Baleno since its announcement.

And why take the fun away, from a car that carries the name of a 1.6-litre-ed petrol propelled rally car (at least for India). Read More
