Watch long term review of new Maruti Baleno petrol manual, get best mileage


auto news desk, Maruti Baleno continues to be one of the best selling cars despite the huge demand for SUVs and is being loved more than ever in the facelifted form. Launched in 2022, the new Baleno is stronger and more user-friendly with a new cabin design. So we used it to test it thoroughly for three months and found it to be a great hatchback car. Its AMT variant is quite popular, but its manual variant is cheaper and we chose it for our testing. It has a 1.2 petrol and a manual gearbox which is quite simple and comfortable. Its 5-speed manual transmission offers a smooth throw and light clutch, so that you do not feel tired during long drives.

powerful engine
We felt that the engine is slightly more tractable than the current Baleno and requires fewer downshifts. That is, it is very easy to use it urban and daily. The car proved to be very quick and fun to drive on a daily basis. Its 90bhp power and 113Nm torque is more than enough for city use. Although it does not get a turbo petrol engine, but its current engine is also very powerful. Its power delivery is linear but it is a lot of fun to drive.
