The Argentinian market will get the 1.0L Boosterjet engine.

The Suzuki Baleno made its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Less than two weeks later, Suzuki Argentina have confirmed that the premium hatch will launch there in mid-2017.

The communication was made through a Facebook page update which also confirmed the 1.0L Boosterjet engine for the market, whose power is “equivalent to that of a 1.7-liter engine.”

Powering the hatchback will be a choice of the new 1.0-liter Boosterjet, a 1.2-liter Dualjet engine and a 1.2 Dualjet engine with the SHVS system, Suzuki confirmed, for the international market. The SHVS is the mild hybrid system which is already present in India in the form of Ciaz. It has a start/stop system, brake energy recuperation and torque assist for better acceleration and increased fuel economy.

MSIL will launch the Maruti Baleno in the festival season, while exports to the UK will begin around March 2016.
