Maruti Suzuki will be launching the Baleno Facelift today. It will come with more features and equipment than the previous generation. Some of those features are also first-in-segment. For instance, a heads-up display and a 360-degree parking camera. Here, we have a video that shows both the features of the Baleno.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Taurus Tech. In the video, we can see that the driver starts the engine of the new Baleno and the heads-up display panel rises from the dashboard. The heads-up display would show various information like speedometer, tachometer, fuel efficiency, climate control, gear indicator etc. The driver would not need to take his eyes off the road because the HUD is directly in the sight of the driver.
We also get a look at the 360-degree parking camera. The technology is taken from Toyota because they only use this type of floating birds-eye view of the 360-degree camera. We can see that the camera keeps swivelling and you can also pause it. Interestingly, the teaser showcased a normal top-down view of a 360-degree camera and a rearview camera also. So, it is possible that the system lets the driver change the camera view.
The 360-degree camera is shown on the new SmartPlay Pro+ System that is debuting with the 2022 Baleno. It is a new touchscreen infotainment system that measures 9-inches in size. The lower variants would come with the older 7-inch SmartPlay Studio system. Both of them support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new infotainment system also gets Alexa integration which is also first-in-segment. There would also be Arkamys Sound system.
The Baleno would also come with Suzuki Connect connected car technology. There would be more than 40 connected car features on offer. You would be able to install the application on the smartphone as well as a smartwatch. You would be able to check the various information about the car and also control various functions.
The Baleno that we see in the video is finished in silver colour. There would be six colours to choose from. You would be able to get Celestial Blue, Grandeur Silver, Pearl Arctic White, Splendid Silver, Opulent Red and Lux Beige.
The variant in the video is the top-end Alpha variant. There would be four variants on offer, namely Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. Only the Alpha variant would come with a 360-degree parking camera, a Heads-up display, Arkamys Sound System and SmartPlay Pro+ System. This variant would also get cruise control, auto-dimming IRVM, auto-folding ORVMs, leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED fog lamps, UV cut glass, LED Daytime Running Lamps and 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.
There would also be 6 airbags, rearview camera, push-button to start/stop the engine, rear wiper with washer, 4,2-inch TFT multi-information display, LED projector headlamps, multi-function steering wheel, automatic climate control, all four power windows, keyless entry and much more.
Baleno would be offered only with a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. It produces 90 PS of max power and 113 Nm of peak torque. It would be offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AMT.
