Maruti Suzuki Baleno has been a popular choice of hatchbacks in India and has been one of the best-selling products in the Nexa chain of dealerships for Maruti Suzuki. Now, after selling more than 1.5 lakh units of the Baleno, Maruti Suzuki has come out with a new, more powerful variant of the hatchback christened – the Baleno RS. This is Maruti Suzuki's second launch of 2017 as they launched the much anticipated Ignis in January, which too was a Nexa product.
Both the Ignis and the Baleno RS were first showcased at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo and have been much sought after launches ever since. The Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS comes with a new 'BoosterJet' engine technology which makes the 'RS' offering fall into the 'hot hatchback' category, which is usually associated with hatchbacks that focus more on performance than anything else.
