Maruti Suzuki Baleno posted 8,077 units in September 2021 as against 19,433 units during the same period in 2020 with 58 per cent de-growth

Maruti Suzuki Baleno continued to lead the premium hatchback segment in the month of September as 8,077 units were sold against 19,433 units during the same period in 2020 with YoY negative volume growth of 58 per cent. The Baleno is expected to get a facelift sometime next year and test mules have already been spotted on public roads.

The mid-cycle update could help in expanding the lifespan of the B2 segment hatchback further as new features are expected to be introduced along with visual revisions. The Tata Altroz has emerged as one of the top-sellers for the homegrown manufacturer in recent times on a consistent basis and last month, 5,772 units were registered domestically.

The first model underpinned by the ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) platform is one of the safest and most affordable cars money can buy in India currently as it has a Global NCAP safety rating of five stars. It derives power from a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol, a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine.
