Anjali Arora’s initial Instagram story showcases the Baleno discreetly draped in a black satin cloth within the delivery area of a Maruti Suzuki NEXA showroom in Gurugram. The subsequent story exhibits Anjali proudly displaying the keys to her pristine car against the backdrop of the vehicle itself. The caption accompanying the story reads, “A daughter’s gift to her father,” along with the heartwarming message, “Welcome home.”

In the subsequent narrative, both Anjali Arora and her father, with excitement brimming, unveil the car from beneath the satin covering, revealing its captivating allure. The duo embraced the Grandeur Grey shade for their Baleno. Notably, the presence of machined alloy wheels suggests that the showcased hatchback version in the Instagram stories is likely the top-tier Alpha variant, as it exclusively features such wheels. However, it remains unclear whether Anjali Arora’s acquisition is the manual or automatic rendition of the Baleno.

Mass-segment choice

Celebrities often opt for luxury cars to enhance their collections, yet there are instances where they opt for more modest and mainstream choices, as seen with Anjali Arora’s Baleno. While the Baleno may belong to the common spectrum of vehicles, the Alpha variant she acquired boasts an array of premium attributes. These encompass six airbags, a head-up display, a 360-degree parking camera, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED headlamps, fog lamps, and tail lamps.

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno is available in four distinct variants – Sigma, Delta, Zeta, and Alpha – all equipped with a 1.2-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine as the standard powertrain. Generating 90 PS of maximum power and 113 Nm of peak torque, this engine comes mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission across all variants. Additionally, from the Delta variant onwards, an optional 5-speed AMT is offered. In the Indian car market, the Baleno faces competition from other premium hatchbacks like the Hyundai i20, Tata Altroz, and Toyota Glanza.
