The report states –

Digital inquiries for the Suzuki Baleno seems to have eclipsed others. The search share captured by the recently launched Maruti Suzuki Baleno is far ahead of peers. Although most recent launches delivered relatively lower digital interest, the search-share for the Baleno has reached the pitch last seen during the launch of Ford Ecosport in 2013. Among the rest, Renault Kwid manages to outshine with its aggressive pricing and SUV-type looks.

The Baleno was launched in the last week of October 2015, and has quickly garnered over 70,000 bookings and commands a waiting period of up to six months. While prices started at INR 4.99 lakhs, ex-Showroom, New Delhi, Maruti increased prices by INR 5,000-12,000 earlier in the month.
