Rumour: Maruti Baleno RS discontinued

Thanks to BHPian Leoshashi for sharing this information with other enthusiasts!

The Baleno RS has been removed from Maruti's official NEXA website. This suggests that the model might have been discontinued.

The Baleno RS was powered by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine which produced 101 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 150 Nm @ 1,700-4,500 rpm. This engine was unlikely to be updated to comply with BS6 emission regulations.

The Baleno RS had received a cosmetic update in January 2019. Later that year, the model was offered with a heavy discount in order to clear existing stocks.
