Maruti Suzuki has launched the Baleno with automatic transmission in its top trim (Alpha) at Rs 8.34 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). That's Rs 1.05 lakh pricier than the Baleno Alpha manual. However, it's still not the priciest Baleno you can buy with a petrol engine. The Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS with a turbocharged 1.0-litre Boosterjet motor is even costlier at Rs 8.38 lakh. With this, Ertiga and Ignis are now the only two cars in Maruti's lineup that offer an automatic transmission but not in their respective top variant.

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno uses a CVT while the Ertiga and Ciaz rely on traditional torque converters, which have a proven track record for reliability. Ignis and Dzire are the only two cars in Maruti Suzuki portfolio to combine the AMT with the frugal and torquey diesel engine. Cars with an automatic transmission and Maruti badge start at Rs 4.1 lakh (Alto K10 VXi AMT) and stretch up to Rs 10.42 lakh for the Ciaz Alpha petrol automatic.


The Indian audiences have finally warmed up to the idea of two pedal driving and the demand for automatic transmissions has gone up across all segments. Buyers can now opt for an automatic transmission in Baleno without having to sacrifice the LED DRL, HID projector headlamps and Smartplay touchscreen infotainment system available exclusively on the Alpha variant.
