( Expected Price )
Expected Launch :
The small displacement engine will develop a torque of 150 Nm from as low as 1700 rpm and that'll be something to look forward to. Maruti Suzuki appears to have detuned the engine for Indian conditions, but has certainly managed to reach the three figure mark. What is also confirmed is that the Baleno RS will come with a 5-speed manual gearbox and that's a big plus too.
On the styling front we expect the company to play around a bit with the front bumper just to give it a sporty look. The new Baleno RS' list of provisions is likely to include the sporty bucket seats, a flat-bottom unit steering wheel with mounted controls, a moderately refurbished dashboard, SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay support, and aluminium finish pedals.
Considering it's the most powerful Baleno in India, Maruti Suzuki will price it right and yes the additional dose of horsepower will attract a premium price compared to the normal version. We expect the Baleno RS to be priced between ₹ 8.5 to 9.5 lakh (ex-Delhi)
