Maruti Suzuki Baleno has been in the country for a while and is one of the best selling premium hatchbacks in the country. Baleno is also a car that is preferred by many enthusiasts who are into car modification. We have seen many examples of modified Maruti Baleno’s across the country. Most of the examples that we have featured on our website belong from southern part of India and here we have another tastefully modified Maruti Baleno that looks gorgeous.
This car belongs to one of our reader Aswin Saseedharan from Kerala. The car looks unique and is based on 2016 model Maruti Baleno. The owner has tried to avoid any sort of wide body kit on the car. The first thing that one would not on this car is the dual tone coloured wrap on the car. This modified Baleno gets a Avery Dennison Wrap that plays a major role in making this car stand out in the crowd. The wrap job looks neat and gives the car a sporty look.
The chrome inserts on the car have completely been removed or blacked out to give it an aggressive stance. The headlights and foglamps all remain stock but the air dam dam area on the lower part of the bumper has been replaced with a honeycomb design grille. There is a small lip spoiler at the lower part of the bumper too. Coming to the side profile of the car we notice the huge 17 inch sporty looking alloy wheels. The roof has been completely blacked out so are the ORVMs. At the rear, the bumper remains the same and the tail lights get smoked effect.
This modified Baleno is based on 1.3 litre diesel engine version which is no longer available in the market. The car gets an ECU remap too and is powerful than before. It got the performance remap from Pete’s which is a well known name among car enthusiasts. The 1.3 litre diesel engine in stock form used to generate 74 Bhp and 190 Nm of torque. After the ECU remap, the car generates 20 Bhp more which is a huge power update for a car. The owner has also replaced the stock brake pads with Brembo units for better braking experience. The interior of the car has also been modified with custom made black interiors and high end music system. Overall, this is a neatly modified Baleno that looks gorgeous from every angle.
