2022 Maruti Baleno Spotted With Redesigned Rear Bumper

Maruti is all set to launch the next-generation Baleno in the Indian market. Now it has been spotted testing the new vehicle.

The 2022 Maruti Baleno is one of the most-awaited cars this year. The popular hatchback is getting a comprehensive facelift. This includes an optional 1.5-ltr K-series petrol engine from Brezza (with exactly the same specs!). Additionally, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd is now working hard to get a good safety score. The next-gen Maruti Baleno will feature a strengthened platform. The company hopes that it will help the upcoming cat get a 4-Star NCAP Score. This will be a huge improvement over the zero-star score of the current model. The new pictures also show a completely bumper.

The rear panel also gets a reprofiled rear bumper with new taillights. Overall, the hatchback features a wider central air intake on the front and looks a lot sharper than the current curvy version.
