The Maruti Suzuki Baleno Premium Hatchback has updated popular connectivity features: wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These are being rolled out as OTA updates on top-spec Zeta and Alpha variants of the car. The company recently introduced a similar update to its Brezza SUV, and we expect it to be available soon for the Maruti Suzuki XL6.
The Baleno is a very popular hatchback in a segment that is a direct rival to the likes of the Hyundai i20 and Honda Jazz. Under the hood is his 1.2-liter petrol engine with idle start/stop technology. This powertrain produces 88bhp and 113Nm of torque. The transmission is a 5-speed manual and an AMT unit.
The car is currently available in four variants, Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha, with prices starting at Rs 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom).
Meanwhile, earlier this year, Maruti also released Baleno in a CNG avatar. In CNG mode, the car he produces 76.42 bhp and 98.5 nm of torque. Maruti Suzuki also offers the Baleno S-CNG with 6 airbags. It also features a built-in Suzuki Connect with over 40 connected features, a 17.78cm Smartplay Pro touchscreen infotainment system with voice assistant, and more.
