Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch the Baleno facelift soon. While the brand is yet to divulge any information about the upcoming hatch, a teaser image has been leaked online that partially shows its front facia. Its unofficial bookings are already underway at select Nexa dealerships across the country.
Revealed by the teaser image, the 2022 Maruti Baleno will get a redesigned grille coupled with new LED headlamps that will give it a bold look. It will also be equipped with circular LED fog lamps.
Going by the earlier spy shots, the new Baleno will also receive a slightly tweaked bonnet design, along with new bumpers at both ends. The rear will also bring a new LED tail lamp setup that now extends to the tailgate.
Inside, the facelifted Baleno will come with a layered dashboard like the global-spec S-Cross, where the middle part will get a grey treatment, while the upper and lower sections will be finished in black. It will also get a floating touchscreen infotainment system that looks like an 8-inch unit. It should be equipped with features like wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto and connected car technology.
The other notable features could include a heads-up display, up to 6-airbags, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, a colored multi-info display, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel with controls for the music system as well as cruise control.
Under the hood, the 2022 Maruti Baleno could be offered with the same 83PS 1.2-litre K12B and 90PS 1.2-litre Dualjet Dual-VVT (with a 12V mild-hybrid system) petrol engines as the ongoing model. However, its CVT automatic transmission option could be replaced with an AMT unit to keep the prices in check.
