The existing Baleno models are priced between 7.01 lakh (ex-showroom) and 10.86 lakh (ex-showroom). However, given that Maruti will be driving in a much more feature-packed Baleno, the price will be higher. Yet, to keep it competitive to take on its rivals, Maruti is likely to price the new generation Baleno starting from around 6.50 lakh mark. The price of the top-spec variants may go beyond 10 lakh for all the tech features on offer.
