Maruti Suzuki recently gave a mid-life update to its popular hatchback, the Baleno. The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno has recently been upgraded with the BSVI compliant 1.2-litre VVT petrol and the all-new BSVI compliant 1.2-litre DualJet Smart Hybrid petrol engine. And Maruti Suzuki has now hiked prices on the Baleno’s diesel variants and the petrol RS model.

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS has received a price hike of INR 13,000 and the diesel models have gone up by INR 12,000 – 20,000 and the new DualJet models are now higher by INR 7,000 – 14,000. The price hike is a general revision to help compete the DualJet models with the diesel variants.

As reported earlier, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno was recently updated on the exterior as well as on the interior and it includes a 7.0-inch SmartPlay Studio infotainment system co-developed by Harman and was first seen on the new Wagon R.
