The all-new Maruti Baleno has created a lot of buzz around it ever since it was launched with it aggressive pricing, premium features and a bold new exterior styling.
This is the first new Maruti Baleno that has been converted into a matte black version. The aftermarket car modification industry in India is booming at the moment. People are in a rush to make their vehicles look unique and have a distinct road presence. This is one such exterior enhancement that could make any car look more appealing and premium. The Baleno has made it even tougher for the likes of Tata Altroz and Hyundai i20 to compete against it. Let us check out the premium hatchback in matte black finish.

Maruti Baleno Matte Black
The YouTuber has wrapped his Baleno in a PPF (Paint Protection Film). It is a common practice that many people follow in their brand new cars. Essentially, the entire body of the car is wrapped with this film to protect the paint. It also has self-healing characteristics that could prevent the little chips due to rubble on the roads and bird landings. The ease of washing is tremendously enhanced. The matte black paint scheme puts it in the category of premium cars like the AMG. This colour is complimented greatly with the black ORVMs and A, B and C-pillars. The thick chrome bar on the boot lid lends a premium look to the rear profile along with the split LED taillamp unit.
The Baleno comes powered by a 1.2-litre K Series petrol engine that produces 88 hp and 113 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. Complementing this engine is the option of choosing between a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. The prices of the new Baleno range between Rs 6.35 lakh and Rs 9.49 lakh, ex-showroom. Maruti has made significant changes to the engine, suspension system, steering and clutch to make it even more engaging to drive. The weight of the vehicle has also been increased which may have been done to boost the safety and build quality.
