Customers interested in the Baleno can place an order online at a dedicated microsite, with prices starting from 15,900 Euros (INR 11.55 lakhs) excluding IPT (Insurance Premium Tax). Suzuki also announced a limited Baleno “Web S Edition”, featuring a new colour – the Blue Boreal, a red stripe on the edge of the front bumper, 16-inch alloy wheels and a body-coloured rear spoiler. However, customers can only expect the Baleno to arrive from March 2016.
