4 lakh sales milestone for the Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Maruti Suzuki has been selling the Baleno hatchback as hot cakes. Ever since its launch, the Baleno has been flying off the shelves at Nexa showrooms. The brand has now revealed that the Baleno has crossed the 4 lakh unit sales milestone in India. Launched in October 2015, the Baleno has achieved this feat in less than 3 years.

The Baleno is Maruti Suzuki’s most premium hatchback offering which rivals the likes of Hyundai Elite i20 & Honda Jazz. And out of this lot, the Baleno is the highest selling model. Maruti Suzuki retails the Baleno from their premium Nexa dealerships. It consistently stays in the top 10 cars list in the sales department month-on-month.

Powering the Baleno is a 1.2L petrol and a 1.3L diesel engine option. Both petrol and diesel engines get 5-speed manual gearboxes while the petrol also has an optional CVT gearbox.

The Baleno comes loaded with features such as a colour MID, steering mounted controls, touchscreen SmartPlay infotainment system, automatic headlamps, LED DRLs, projector headlamps, LED tail lamps, automatic climate control, dual airbags, ABS, and more. This makes the Baleno a very competent product as per segment standards.
