2022 Maruti Baleno India Launch Next Month; Bookings to Open Soon
Maruti Suzuki is planning to introduce a bunch of new cars to the Indian market and the updated Maruti Baleno is one of them. We have the latest reports that the brand is going to debut the 2022 Maruti Baleno in the last week of February and that the booking process is also going to commence soon. Some time back, the spy shots of the upcoming undisguised Baleno became viral, which were taken during the TVC shoot, in which we have seen that the manufacturer has made plenty of exterior updates to the car.
As per the latest details available, it is being said that the new 2022 Baleno’s cabin will be pretty similar in design to the cabin of the new-gen Suzuki S-Cross. The MY2022 S-Cross made its official debut a few weeks ago, and this model has gone through a plethora of tweaks in comparison to the current model. Excitingly, both cars share a lot of elements in terms of interior styling.
According to the sources, the dashboard arrangement of the new Baleno is mostly inspired by the S-Cross. However, the touchscreen display will be slightly different from the latter. Moreover, the instrument cluster, which comprises two analogue dials and a digital multi-information screen, would be identical.
While the Suzuki S-Cross still gets the traditional multi-function steering wheel that is being used in the Vitara Brezza. In the next-gen model, the Baleno is most likely to feature remote keyless entry, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, auto climate control, start/stop push button and a lot of other comfort features.
Speaking of the powertrain, the forthcoming Maruti Suzuki Baleno is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre K12M VVT petrol or a 1.2-litre Dualjet unit with SHVS mild-hybrid tech. Transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox with the option of a CVT automatic unit.
