The Maruti Baleno is infamous for getting 0 stars on the Latin NCAP safety tests. However, it comes with a 1.2-liter petrol engine that produces 83 hp and 113 Nm of peak power and torque, respectively. The dual-jet version features the brand’s smart hybrid technology and offers 89bhp and 113Nm of torque. Both engines can be paired with a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox.

As you can see in the video above shared by Arun Panwar on Youtube, the Kia Seltos Diesel variant (manual) got stuck during off-roading. The bumper got stuck in a muddy area and the engine protection cover was bent. Despite trying multiple methods, the driver couldn’t get it out. Even after turning off the traction control, the car stuck until a Maruti Baleno arrived to help. During the first attempt, the Maruti Baleno could not help at all. It got similar results in the second attempt. Finally, a tractor managed to pull the Kia Seltos out, with little external help from the locals.
