- Maruti sells an average of over 13,000 units of the Baleno every month
- Maruti Suzuki Baleno holds a 25% market share in the premium hatch space
Commenting on the new sales milestone, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, "With a staggering market share of over 25 per cent, Baleno has led and redefined the premium hatchback segment. Inspiring over a million customers and bagging numerous awards, Baleno has truly won the hearts of both customers and auto experts across the country. Today's evolved urban Indian customer is self-motivated, tech-savvy, and bold in their life, and the Baleno is just the right companion for these discerning minds. Baleno makes for a premium style statement on wheels with its extraordinary road presence and drive experience. We are confident that with the love and support of our customers, Baleno will go on to reach even greater heights in the future as well."
As mentioned before, the Baleno was launched in October 2015, and in just one year the company sold the first 1 lakh units of the car. By December 2017, three lakh Balenos were sold in India, post which the company continued to sell nearly two lakh units of the car every year until December 2019. However, due to COVID-19 related challenges, the Baleno was able to cross the eight lakh unit sales milestone only by October 2020, but Maruti did manage to sell the next two lakh units of the car in just over a year, by November 2021.
The Baleno comes with a bunch of smart features like - LED projector headlight, LED DRLs, alloy wheels, and LED taillight. The car also comes with features like - a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, idle start-stop, rear parking camera, auto climate control and more. While the car was initially available in both petrol and diesel engine options, as of April 2020, Maruti Suzuki India offers the Baleno in petrol engine option only, powered by the 1.2litre Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine with Suzuki's mild-hybrid system offered as an option. The Baleno comes in both manual and CVT automatic options. The car is currently priced in India at Rs. 5.99 lakh to Rs. 9.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
