Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to launch Baleno Facelift in India by June 2019. 2019 Baleno Facelift will change only minor cosmetic changes and there will be no change in the engine specs, claimed a source close to the development.
Baleno is currently operated by 1.2 liter petrol and 1.3 liter diesel engine. While both engines are available with manual transmission, petrol engine is also connected with CVT automated. Cosmetic changes have been planned which revolve around a new set of bumpers that will refresh the front and rear design. There is also hope for a new set of alloy wheels. Over and above, new features will be added to its kitty.

At present, the Baleno comes fitted with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, seatbelt pretensioners with force limiters and Isofix child seat anchorages as standard. With the facelift, however, features like rear parking sensors, speed alert system and seatbelt reminder will come as standard. On the upper variants too, we can expect the 2019 Baleno to be more equipped with features like LED headlamps and fog lamps. At present, the Baleno is available with projector headlamps in only its top Alpha variant while lower variants get halogen reflectors only. With the changes set in, expect prices of the Baleno to go up, but only slightly. At present, the Baleno is priced between Rs 5.38 lakh and Rs 8.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Baleno will continue to rival the likes of the Hyundai Elite i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo in the premium hatchback segment.
