The Nexa, the newest destination for Maruti’s premium models, will welcome the second model to its showrooms in October. Ahead of its launch in the country, some of the dealers of Nexa have opened the bookings for Maruti Baleno with a down payment ranging from Rs 11,000 to Rs 25,000.
The Upcoming Maruti Suzuki BALENO has been sighted inside the factory premises by curious journalists. From the first look, where the vehicle is seen partially clad with a fabric cover, it is clear that the Maruti Suzuki BALENO will be mainly based on the Swift. The overall design language will be borrowed from the premium Kizashi owing to its modern approach.
