The Baleno was launched in India in October, and the Japanese specification was showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show the same month. Positioned above the Swift and retailed via the NEXA outlets, the car competes with the Hyundai i20 and the Honda Jazz, both of which has been outsold by it.

The Baleno exported to Japan comes with a 1.0-liter Boosterjet engine which develops 110 hp and 170 Nm, along with a 1.2-liter Dualjet engine with SHVS technology. Power is transferred via a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
