You won't get that much discount when new Baleno will come. As per my info new Baleno will come with one more variant ZXi like Swift plus clear rear lamps. There won't be any change in engine so driving will not have any difference.

If you haven't put any money down, heed this advice. Anybody who has spent some time in Team-BHP would not buy a Baleno Vxi, unless they they got to have rear-glass demister and driver seat height adjuster. The smart thing to do is buy Baleno Lxi and upgrade with your choice of accessories with half the money you save, you can spend the rest of the saving on anything else.

Example, Vxi comes with AM/FM cassette player, 165/80R13 bridgestone 322s and alloys, body color bumpers, etc. My Lxi has AM/FM/MP3/CD player, 195/60R14 with BSA alloys, Llumar front sunfilm as well as sides, fake leather seats, K&N filter, 100/90W lights with relay, body color mirrors and bumpers, etc, etc. After all the accessories of my choice, it still cost me less than Vxi and it is a much better car than stock Vxi in looks/handling/features.

Yeah show them and if possible switch your dealer if you get the same deal else where.
Happy buying.
