On the other hand, the Baleno DualJet has to get rid of some obstructions before it can become the de facto engine option for the crowds. Furthermore to the DualJet engine, Maruti has also simplified its 1.2-litre K Series petrol motor in unity with the coming emission standards. So the Baleno is power-driven by the DualJet engine not only has to surpass cars from recognized competitors such as the Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz, but it also has to resist with the 1.2-liter K Series-fortified version of itself!
The Heart And The Drive
Remarkably, the Baleno DualJet and the Honda Jazz yield 90PS of power while the other two yield 83PS. All four cars produce similar turning figures also. However, it’s the i20 which yields the most volume of rotation that comes previously in the cycle band. Next thoroughly is the Baleno K Series, which yields 113Nm of rotation at 4200rpm, after which the DualJet variant yields the same amount 200rpm far along.
The Jazz yields the minimum amount of rotation and in true Honda style, the rotation is formed higher up in the revolution crew at 4800rpm. All cars are presented here those are all available with a 5-speed manual diffusion as standard. All of them can be equipped with a CVT as well. But astonishingly, if you want an automatic Baleno, your only choice is to select the K-Series motorized car as the DualJet engine doesn’t achieve an automatic variation as of so far.
When it comes to fuel efficiency, the Baleno DualJet is the most economical of the greatest thanks to its light curb weight and Maruti’s Smart Hybrid technology which closes the engine off when standing motionless. Next is the Baleno power-driven by the K Series engine. The i20 and Jazz begin the last two spots, correspondingly.
Features That Matter

The Jazz is also the only car here to get features a tilt-only alteration for the direction-finding wheel.
The great information is that all these cars available with twin airbags and ABS. Also however all of them obtain back parking devices, the i20 and Jazz take it a step ahead by offering a back camera also.
Even though it comes to passing the cheque, the Jazz is the most costly option. Indeed, the petrol engine is not accessible in the base-spec ‘S’ variant, which makes you expanse your budget ahead. Moreover, the Jazz is the most sporadically furnished car here. It is close combat between the Elite i20 and the Baleno twins. Although both cars are well fortified, the Baleno K Series takes it a step forward by providing an automatic transmission in the entire variants expect the base-spec version. Therefore, this would be our option if the accessibility of a two-pedal system was on top of our primaries. To build the competition even violent, the Baleno will as all brand-new competing in the form of the badge-engineered Toyota Glanza.
