Maruti Baleno price to be hiked post Diwali
Maruti’s new premium hatchback Baleno is grabbing eyeballs for its aggressive price tag, giving it an advantage over its rivals. Starting at Rs 4.99 lakh, Baleno is way cheaper than Honda Jazz that starts at Rs 5.35 lakh and Hyundai Elite i20 that is priced at Rs 5.36 lakh (all prices mentioned are ex-showroom Delhi). Now the automotive industry is abuzz with the news of MSI hiking the price of Baleno post the festive season. With key features like anti-lock-braking system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and dual front airbags as standard across the range, Baleno is in a sweet spot.
As for the revised pricing, there is yet no clarity on the additional premium over the introductory price. Hence, all the customers who are planning to buy the Maruti Baleno should rush to the nearest NEXA outlet to make use of the offer.
Available in petrol as well as diesel engine options, the hatchback is positioned above Maruti’s flagship model Swift in its line-up. Seemingly bigger in dimensions, the premium hatchback wears a fresh design, however the front is reminiscent of the Swift, but otherwise MSI has infused fresh elements that outdo other Maruti`s. Yet another highlight of the hatchback is the claimed fuel economy of 27.39 kmpl delivered by the 1.3 litre DDiS diesel motor.
