Engine & Transmission Options

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno comes in 5 petrol and 4 diesel variants across four trim levels – Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. While the petrol variants of the car come equipped with a 1.2-litre VVT unit (84bhp and 115Nm), the diesel engine is a 1.3-litre DDiS 190 engine (74bhp, 190Nm). Though both these engines also power the Swift twins, the Maruti Baleno offers better power-to-weight ratio due around 100kg less weight than the former. The Maruti Baleno is based on Suzuki’s new-generation platform that makes it lighter and stiffer than that of the Swift. While a 5-speed manual gearbox comes standard, a CVT automatic gearbox is only offered with the Delta petrol trim.

Petrol – 1.2-litre VVT with a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic gearbox
Diesel – 1.3-litre DDiS 200 with a 5-speed manual


Besides several exciting features, what also goes in the Maruti Baleno’s favour are the class-leading mileage figures claimed by the company. While the Maruti Baleno petrol version returns an ARAI-certified fuel-efficiency of 21.4km/l, the diesel offers an outstanding 27.39km/l.

Petrol – 21.4km/l
Diesel – 27.39km/l


Coming to dimensions, the Maruti Baleno hatchback measures 3995mm in length, 1500mm in height, 1745mm in width and has a wheelbase of 2520mm. This certainly makes it one of the most spacious cars in its segment. The car also offers an impressive 170mm of ground clearance, which helps it handle all sorts of potholes and undulations with quite an ease.
