Maruti Suzuki Baleno is a very popular premium hatchback in the Indian market. It was first launched in the year 2015 and got a facelift in 2019. Now, the carmaker is planning to give it another facelift update and ahead of its official launch, the upcoming facelifted Maruti Baleno has been spotted undisguised in India. The new Maruti Suzuki Baleno Facelift has been spotted without any camouflage, revealing some of its key design elements, and hinting at its imminent launch in India.
Talking about the design, the spy images reveal that the facelifted Baleno will get a revised front fascia. At the front, it will get a re-designed grille and revamped bumper that seems to give the car a wider appeal than the outgoing model. Moreover, its headlamps are also tweaked and they feature new L-shaped LED DRLs too. The side profile of the car isn’t visible in the images but it is expected to remain more or less the same as before, save for the possible addition of new alloy wheels.
Moving to the rear profile, one can see that the new facelifted Baleno gets revamped bumpers and new LED taillights that extend all the way to the tailgate. The interior images of the car are not yet out but its previous spy shots confirm that the new Baleno Facelift will get a re-designed dashboard with a large free-standing touchscreen infotainment system. However, the company won’t tweak its mechanicals and it will continue with the same set of petrol engines as before.
