It is  really a good time to consider buying a sporty hatchback when the country’s leading carmaker decides to make one. Maruti has a pedigree when it comes to making fuel-efficient, reliable and cheap-to-run cars, but for its first performance hatch, the company has for once let the fuel economy figure (21.4kpl) .




But power is right at the forefront. thats why it is  called the Baleno RS and it used a new 1.0-litre, three cylinder, direct injection, turbocharged petrol motor that makes 102hp and 150Nm of torque.

The segment, which has Volkswagen Polo GT TSI and Fiat Abarth Punto as rivals to the new Maruti model, is concentrated on delivering a richer driving experience than the regular model which is introduced first
