Suzuki Baleno 2022. According to preliminary data, a hatchback with a different design will hit the market next year.

It is not excluded that the «five-door» will keep its «atmospheric» engine and at the same time it is predicted to get a new hybrid version.

The hatchback, for which the name Baleno was revived (in the ’90s, there was a whole family with such name in Suzuki’s lineup), is available since 2015.

The model was conceived as a global one; even the possibility of its appearance in Russia was considered.

But it did not reach us; the Baleno did not get accustomed in Europe: the sales in this region were canceled last year.

But in India, where the basic industrial site is located (Maruti Suzuki is responsible for its output), the five-door is in great demand.

Thus, according to local mass media, almost 94 000 cars were sold there in the first half-year (then sales collapsed, but the matter here is not lack of interest, but lack of semiconductors). And here comes the new Baleno.

Disguised hatchback caught on Indian roads at the end of the summer, a photo of the test prototype published edition MotorBeam.

And now declassified the interior, and inside there is not a shred of camouflage: pictures of the interior appeared on YouTube-channel Harsh Vlogs.

By the way, two years ago, the «five-door» was upgraded, but then there were few updates.

This time, they worked on the model more thoroughly, that is, it is possible that Suzuki will position such Baleno as the next generation.

According to spy photos, the silhouette remains the same, but wide headlights will be replaced by optics with predatory squint, and taillights are new too — horizontal instead of rounded.

The bumpers and grille will be different. But inside the hatchback will change the most: there is a new front panel, «climate» control unit and steering wheel, and multimedia touchscreen now «floats», because of which the central air deflectors had to be moved lower (the actual Baleno has them on each side of the tablet).

Local specialized media believe that the model will keep petrol four-cylinder atmospheric engine 1.2 in India; it produces 83 hp on the present hatchback and is combined with 5-speed manual or variator.

Pre-reform Suzuki Baleno with FCP can also have hybrid addition in the form of starter-generator (in this case, the engine produces 90 hp).

Some publications still predict more powerful hybrid version — probably, it means that the hatchback can be transformed into «full-fledged» hybrid.

On sale the new Suzuki Baleno is expected at the beginning of the next year, although it may well celebrate its premiere in 2021 (or the company will distribute the first teasers).

The actual hatchback in India costs from 599,000 rupees, which is equivalent to about 579,000 rubles at the current exchange rate.
