2022 Maruti Baleno: Here’s What We Expect

Maruti Suzuki will launch the 2022 Baleno next month with a significant list of changes & upgrades. This is a much-needed update if Maruti wants to continue ruling the particular hatchback segment. It will help tackle rivals such as i20 & Altroz better and maintain Baleno’s position at the top.

There are various new things, from a reworked & more aggressive exterior to a fresh interior and additional safety features. Let’s see what we expect:

  • Fresh Cabin

    A significant update would be a fresh interior for the hatchback. The all-new cabin will have a free-standing centre console with the aircon vents below. This would be the highlight inside the cabin with upmarket upholstery& a basic heads-up display.

    The spy shots do not reveal much about the interior. But we can observe clear set dials with a multi-information display in the middle. A digital instrument cluster is missed out on, and it carries the same flat-bottom steering wheel as the Swift.

  • Stronger & Safer

    Maruti Suzuki is also working on making safer cars & the new Baleno will be equipped with 6-airbags for the top variants. Dual front airbags and side curtain airbags for both front & rear rows. The top trims might also be equipped with ESP for better stability.

    In addition, better grade steel will be used for the Baleno to provide a better build quality. Maruti will redo the outer body panels and significant parts of the chassis with thicker steel to give a more solid feel. This may not effectively make the car rigid but will be reassuring.

  • Ditching CVT?

    The new Baleno will be priced competitively which due to which the pricey CVT might be ditched to drop the price a little. The AMT transmission from Swift will be carried to replace the ongoing CVT; the AMT variants will be around ₹60,000 costlier. No paddle shifters are expected, but users can switch gears themselves too.

    This would affect the smooth ride of the CVT; however, it would help to capture more markets with the rising competition. The price will be slightly hiked, and the expected range could be from ₹6.5-10 lakhs. It has already hit the 10lakh units milestone since 2015, and the dealers expect this to be a massive hit in the given price.
