Maruti Suzuki is back with a brand new product – The New-age Baleno. With a punchy tagline – “Tech goes Bold“, the company is specifically targeting youngsters and new-age customers who is in the market for a premium hatchback. As you know, Maruti Baleno is exclusively sold in Nexa Experience outlets that claims to offer premium experience to its customers. The car has seen multiple iterations and updates over the years based on the consumer feedback.

So what are these 3 BIG tech things which Maruti Suzuki is campaigning about? Does the New-age Baleno impress the customer like it did for original Baleno? Let’s find out.
360 View Camera
The city population density, urbanisation and busy lifestyle of Indians has resulted in people craving for more advanced assistance features for their every day driving requirements. The 360 degree view (or around view monitor – refer Magnite review) seems like a most desired feature to have among new-gen customers. A feature like this, which was once limited to luxury cars has now broken barriers and can be now seen on cars that are about Rs 10 lakhs. The New-age Maruti Baleno too is equipped with this feature – An extremely helpful parking assistance feature.
Head up Display
This is a pretty fancy feature – a slightly glorified feature as well. The HUD or Head Up Display facilitates the driver to keep his eyes on the road all the time by displaying important and useful information like Navigation direction indicator, speed information, current gear number etc right in front. This avoids distraction and gives a more superior experience to the driver. Glad to see the New-generation Baleno getting Head up Display feature.
9″ Inch Infotainment System / Smart Play Pro+
The most-time spent in your car is the cabin, and Maruti Suzuki has made sure to keep its customers engaged by offering a full size infotainment system – Smart Play Pro+. The screen is big and wide with 9′ inch screen. The Smart Play Pro+ claims to offer immersive sound experience and rich experience. The New Baleno is equipped with this brand new equipment.
