Made-in-India Suzuki Baleno rolls out

Recently, spy pictures of what looked like the production version of the upcoming Suzuki Baleno surfaced on the internet. Today, a new set of images have unofficially confirmed the roll out of the new Baleno from Maruti’s plant. The new Baleno (Codename: YRA) is likely to hit Indian showrooms very soon.

The new made-in-India Baleno is a global model and will be officially unveiled globally at the upcoming Frankfurt motor show 2015. In India, it will sit above the Swift. Though not officially confirmed, but Maruti could sell this new hatchback via its newly launched Nexa premium dealership that also sells the S-Cross.

Powering this new hatchback will be an all-new 1.0-litre turbo petrol Boosterjet motor. Maruti, in India is also likely to offer the 1.2-litre K12 as well as the popular 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced diesel engine. Maruti’s recently launched SHVS diesel-hybrid technology will also be coupled with the diesel version.

In India, the new hatchback will take on the likes of the Hyundai i20 and Honda Jazz. It is based on a new-generation platform which will underpin upcoming models from Suzuki. The carmaker is also readying an all-new compact SUV (Codename: YBA) for the market.
