A banner spangled with “All-new Baleno Coming Soon” is being shared by a NEXA dealership on their website.

2016 Maruti Baleno hatchback is the next new Maruti Suzuki car to be launched in India. The new Baleno will be sold exclusively through NEXA dealerships.

Unlike the full fledged Baleno sedan which was launched by the company earlier, the new Baleno is a premium sized hatchback which comes in to compete with the Honda Jazz, VW Polo, Hyundai Elite i20 and Fiat Punto Evo in India.

Borrowing its powertrain options from Maruti Swift, the 2016 Baleno hatchback in India will be powered by a 1.3 liter MultiJet diesel engine and a 1.2 liter K Series petrol engine. For international markets, 2016 Suzuki Baleno hatchback will receive a newly developed 1.0 liter BoosterJet petrol engine offering 110 bhp power and 17.33 kgm torque. Along with manual, there will also be a CVT on offer with petrol option in India.
