Maruti Suzuki Baleno 1.2L Dualjet SHVS: Why should you buy?

Maruti Suzuki has added to its hybrid portfolio, the Baleno 1.2-litre Dualjet hybrid. It’s available in the Delta and Zeta variants and they are priced at Rs 7.25 lakhs and Rs 7.86 lakhs respectively (ex-showroom Delhi). It’s the first of a new lot of hybrid models from Indo-Japanese automaker and here is our guide to why you should buy these versions of the Baleno.

What’s good about it?
The hybrid engine, of course. This new 1.2-litre K12C Dualjet features two injectors per cylinder for optimal thermal efficiency and dual VVT (variable valve timing) for improved performance and fuel economy. It now gets a reworked exhaust system along with a precise software-controlled fuel injection system that employs various sensors for better emissions. The BS-VI compliance has led to a reduction of nearly 25 per cent in Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions.
This engine has also been fitted with Suzuki’s next-generation progressive SHVS mild-hybrid system that uses a dual battery setup. Along with the lead-acid battery, the system also gets a lithium-ion battery that offers a 'torque-assist function'. There is also an ISG (integrated starter generator), which has a motor function that enhances the fuel economy by providing a power assist to the engine. Besides the torque-assist function, the SHVS mild-hybrid tech also comprises of idle start-stop system and brake energy regeneration technology.

What’s not so good?
There’s not much to complain about apart from the fact that there is no top spec model for this engine option. However, that is only expected to be a minor issue as we believe that this will be a planned update for the hatchback later this year.
Best variant to buy?
The Zeta variant as it offers more features than the Delta variant.
