Maruti Suzuki has expanded its range of automatic cars by adding the CVT gearbox to the Alpha variant of the popular Baleno premium hatchback. With this addition to the top variant, the CVT in Baleno will be offered in three variants now, including the Delta and Zeta variants. The move is seen as an effort to democratize two-pedal technology in India and Maruti Suzuki India is the leader in the automatic gearbox, including AMT and CVT in India.
With this launch customer looking to buy an Automatic Baleno will get hi-end features including the Smartphone Linkage Display Audio that works with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink. The CVT Alpha variant is priced at Rs 834,052/- (ex-showroom Delhi).
Since its launch in October 2015, over 200,000 Balenos have been sold by Maruti Suzuki, making it the leader in the premium hatchback segment. Baleno achieved the 100,000 unit sales milestone in less than a year setting a record for being the top selling premium hatchback in India.
Baleno has been retailing through the premium chain NEXA dealerships, consistently topping the charts of the 10 best-selling passenger cars. The Baleno comes with many firsts in the segment like Apple Car Play, standard safety features like dual airbags and ABS with EBD, and a sporty Baleno RS version.
Baleno is being exported to over 100 countries and is the first car from Maruti Suzuki being exported to Japan under Government’s “Make in India” mission. Over 68,000 units of Baleno have been exported across the world, including Japan, Australia, New Zealand and several parts of Europe and Latin America.
For Maruti Suzuki, the contribution of two pedal technology has increased from 6% in FY 2014-15 to 11% in 2016-17. Maruti aims to double the two-pedal contribution from the current levels approximately (150,000 units) and achieve 300,000 mark by 2020.
