Maruti Suzuki is the most successful hatchback dealer in India from the times of the 800. While it has normally made nippy hatchbacks, there was never a specific effectiveness variant. That changes now with the Baleno RS.
The Baleno RS takes on a Polo GT TSI in the popular hatch segment as well as argue that it fractures the Figo 1.5 and the Abarth Punto with its efficiency figures. Powering the particular Baleno RS is a 1-litre 3-cylinder Boosterjet generator making 100.5bhp associated with power and 150Nm connected with torque. The Boosterjet motor is a new turbo-petrol motor that is short on a single cylinder to the common Baleno, but courtesy a variable geometry turbocharger, makes Eighteen.bhp and 35Nm more than that.
In addition to the more impressive engine is better ceasing power with game brakes for the backside wheels as well. To really make the RS stand out, them gets revised back and front bumpers with black plastic-type material cladding, a different mesh grill and blackened A-pillars. The black colored theme continues with the alloy wheels on and on by the amount of shifts that have been made externally, youd expect something similar within the car as well. Sadly, that is not the case since the interiors are identical to your regular Baleno. The heartening point however is the presence of a 5-speed manual gearbox in the Baleno and not a new automatic, immediately boosting its value to be a drivers car. Besides the Urs, only the Abarth Punto comes with a handbook gearbox, and if it’s anything like the common Baleno, the RS must be an involving auto to drive.
We will be driving the car tomorrow on the BIC so stay tuned for a detailed review.
