The Maruti Suzuki Baleno was first launched in India in October 2015 and it took just a little over six years to accomplish this landmark, becoming the fastest premium hatch to do so.

If we talk about Baleno’s history in India, it was first launched in October 2015. In 2017, Maruti Suzuki even launched the performance-oriented Baleno RS but it was later discontinued owing to poor sales. In 2019, this premium hatchback received a mid-life facelift and also became the first mass-market car in India to comply with the BS6 emission norms. Now, after six years of its official launch, the Baleno has become the fastest premium hatchback to cross 1 million sales.
