Maruti Suzuki Fronx vs Maruti Suzuki Baleno: Specification

Maruti Suzuki Fronx has two different petrol engine options: a 1.0-litre turbocharged unit and a 1.2-litre motor. This makes the Fronx one of the very few Maruti Suzuki cars to be offered with dual engine options. The turbocharged unit produces 100 hp peak power and 147.6 Nm of torque. The 1.2-litre naturally aspirated engine kicks out 90 hp of peak power and 113 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a five-speed manual unit or a six-speed torque converter automatic for the 1.0-litre motor, while the bigger naturally aspirated engine gets a five-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed AMT unit.

The 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine delivers 21.79 kmpl mileage for the manual variant and 22.89 kmpl for the AMT. In contrast, the turbo-petrol unit offers 21.5 kmpl mileage with the manual gearbox and 20.01 kmpl with the automatic. The bigger engine is offered on the first three trims - Sigma, Delta and Delta+, while the turbocharged engine is available with the Delta+, Zeta and Alpha trims.
