    2022 Maruti Suzuki Baleno: engine and gearbox details

    Under the hood, the new Baleno is powered by a sole 90hp, 113Nm, K12N DualJet petrol engine. This engine comes with variable valve timing and an integrated starter generator (ISG) that allows for auto engine stop/start to help save fuel. It, however, does not feature Maruti’s SHVS mild-hybrid system for additional torque boost and efficiency.

    The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, but for the automatic gearbox, Maruti Suzuki has swapped the CVT from the outgoing model in favour of a 5-speed AMT. This is in the interest of cost saving and making the automatic variants more accessible to the buyers. The outgoing version of the Baleno was also offered with an 83hp, 1.2-litre K12M petrol engine, although this has been discontinued with this new model.

    2022 Maruti Suzuki Baleno: rivals

    The new Baleno continues its rivalry in the premium hatchback segment with the likes of the Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz, Tata Altroz, Volkswagen Polo and the soon-to-be-updated Toyota Glanza

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
