Maruti Baleno Prices Slashed Down By Up To Rs 13,100
Prices of Maruti’s premium hatchback, Baleno have been dropped by up to Rs 13,100. Prior to the GST implementation, the Baleno prices fell in the range of Rs 5.28 lakh to Rs 8.43 lakh, whereas the GST pricing of the hatchback starts from Rs 5.26 lakh to Rs 8.42 lakh (ex-showroom, Pan India). Launched in 2015, the hatchback recently received a sportier variant in the line-up dubbed Baleno RS. With a more powerful engine and subtle cosmetic changes, the Maruti Baleno RS is positioned above the top-spec trim in the carline.
Commanding massive popularity in the segment, Baleno recently crossed the 2-lakh unit sales milestone. Interestingly, it achieved the landmark in just 20 months within its launch in India. With an average of monthly sales of 16,000 (in the last three months), the hatchback commands a waiting period of 20 to 21 weeks on select variants. In December last year, Maruti Suzuki India introduced ISOFIX mounts on the hatchback that are being offered as standard across line-up.
