The Maruti Suzuki Baleno is a subcompact hatchback produced by the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki in India since September 2015. Prior to this, the “Baleno” nameplate had been applied to the Cultus Crescent in numerous markets and also for sedan version of Aerio and SX4 in Indonesia. Unlike the previous generations of Baleno when it was offered as a sedan, wagon, or a 3-door hatchback, the model sold since 2015 is exclusively offered as a 5-door hatchback. Since June 2019, it is also marketed at Toyota dealerships in India as the Toyota Glanza, and since September 2020 in several African countries as the Toyota Starlet. The second-generation Baleno hatchback was released in India on 23 February 2022. It is continued to be assembled at Suzuki’s plant in Ahmedabad and will be exported to Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America.
