The Maruti Suzuki Baleno has become high volume vehicle in the market. It also gets a hot-hatch version in the form of Baleno RS in India. With scores of Balenos on the road, it’s become rather too common. This modification job by Auto XSculpt shows how small changes can be significant, and how they can lift up the look of the vehicle.
The job is done on a Maruti Suzuki Baleno petrol automatic in red stock colour. The vehicle gets simple and powerful changes. To start with, there are new AES DRLs that are placed similar to the stock DRLs of the vehicle but gets a slightly different shape. Maruti offers the DRLs only with the top-end version of the Baleno.
The car gets a de-chrome treatment and all the chrome parts on the grille have been painted black. Even the Suzuki logo now gets a black mask. To match the new blacked out theme, the roof also gets a gloss black wrap that goes well with the overall tone of the vehicle. Even the headlamps and spoiler have been painted with the new black theme. The fog lamps have been upgraded to new LED ones. They are much brighter than the stock lamps.
There are new 16-inch mag wheels that are also black in colour and look great on the red Baleno. At the rear, the tail lamps have been given a smoked effect and they are ow darker than the stock lamps. The rear also gets a new bumper diffuser with quad exhausts coming out. We are pretty sure that the three out of four exhausts are there just to grab the attention.
Mechanically, everything remains the same. However, to feed the engine with more air, a new K&N air-intake has been installed with some customisation. We are not sure if there’s an increase in the power. The stock Baleno CVT uses a 1.2 liter K-Series petrol engine with 83 Bhp-114 Nm on tap. The gearbox is a smooth CVT automatic unit.
