Since it’s a facelift, the changes weren’t expected to be major and 2019 Baleno isn’t a significant departure from its predecessor. For Instance, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno gets a new Bumper which sports a wider centre air-dam and air ducts on either side which are surrounded by C-shaped profile. The grille of the new Baleno now gets three-dimensional detailing and has also been slightly tweaked to make the face look wider which in-turn gives it a ‘smiling face’. The lower bend of the chrome finish which forms a basin to surround the grille has been kept less sharp and more angular on edges to blend with the width of the grille. The new Baleno gets new set of dual-tone 16-inch alloy wheels while the side and rear profiles largely remain unchanged. Moreover, Maruti has added two new colours in the Baleno range- Phoenix Red and Magma Grey.
