The new Maruti Baleno’s interior has been spotted for the first time, showing that it will be given a complete makeover. The new model is expected to be released in 2022. A revamped steering wheel, similar to the Swift’s, redesigned AC vents, and a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system are all seen in the spy pictures. The infotainment screen appears to be larger than the present one, and it could support wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as additional connected car technology capabilities.
The instrument cluster is similar to the existing model, but in the production-spec vehicle, it will most likely be replaced with a new unit. Because the dashboard is being completely redesigned, the climate control panel should likewise be new. Additionally, we might anticipate some alterations to the Baleno’s seat covering. New and sharper tail lamps, as well as revised alloy wheels, are also visible. It could also get new LED headlamps and a sharper rear spoiler, as well as reworked front and rear bumpers.
The Baleno now comes equipped with LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs, automatic air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver seat, push-button start/stop, dual front airbags, and a rear parking camera. To keep up with the competition, it might get additional feature additions as part of the upgrade.
The 1.2-litre petrol engine (83PS/113Nm) is likely to remain in the new Baleno, paired to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT. A 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology (90PS/113Nm) is also available, but exclusively with a 5-speed manual transmission.
