Hey that a really nice info. Well the price seems to be bit high. However, the looks are good.

New esteem got to see how it looks. and got to see how they are going to be priced.

Not sure I like the new nose, looks broken. Is that a panel gap?

What engine will they give? If it is bigger a car, they better give the 100hp engine, or else Baleno will lose the performer tag, just like NHC did.

I love the flat styling of OHC and O'Baleno. Slowly Iam getting used to the new aerodynamic designs. New Baleno looks good. Hope they dont compromise on POWER

the new styling is good I must say. I liked it.

Has a close resemblance to Nissan.

Being a maruti it has an advantage of being a hit.

looks extremely good, except for the gap. but with the present baleno engine, it will suck.

thanks for the link

IMHO the front and wheels are similar to the corolla and rear somewhat looks similar to the optra.. I HOPE maruti isnt going hyundai's way and making mixed breeds!!! and the pic seems very fishy... it could all well be a photoshop job!!!

Is SX4 sedan will be lauch same time as SX4?
any news on diesel engine for SX4 sedan?

Sucks! It looks like it's been made by borrowing parts from other cars. Look at the front quarter glass. The bonnet looks like it's been stuck on with Fevicol.
Still, I like the grill.
The old Baleno was no great looker either, but, it was still unique.

Baleno needed this desperately. Looks like maruti has finally woken up to the fact that giving huge discounts will not keep the sales ticking. This will really heat up the competition in C+ segment. More choices...Yummy ;-)

If this is how it's going to look, I must say it will be a lot uglier than the current Baleno !

The new Baleno is substantially different. Since Maruti doesn't have a track record phasing out models, I wonder what will happen to availability/ cost of spares for the existing Baleno a few years down the line !

Ajay_J 12th September 2006 13:42

Doesn't it look like the FIESTA ??

pmbabu 12th September 2006 14:09

Horrible to say the least...... BTW, do folks believe that Maruti can manage to sell big numbers of 8-10 lac cars?

Hightime the Baleno got a lift. However they've tried to modernise it with those lamps and the grill. Not a great job though. The front is obscure..
