Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Not confirmed for launch in India.

Overdrive has acquired spyshots of an export-spec Maruti Baleno Dualjet SHVS testing on Indian soil, which is not confirmed to launch in India.

In export-spec, the Baleno 1.25 SHVS produces 90 PS and 120 Nm of torque.

The reason could be attributed to the 1.25L (1,242 cc) Dualjet engine, which does not conform to the government’s sub-4m tax incentive, thus placing it at a higher tax bracket. In export-spec, the Baleno 1.25 SHVS produces 90 PS and 120 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

However, Maruti will launch the Baleno with the 1.0L Boosterjet engine as the sportier Maruti Baleno ‘RS’, which made its debut at the Auto Expo 2016. Maruti hasn’t revealed technical details on the Baleno RS. In export-spec, the engine produces 111 PS and 170 Nm of torque, and is available with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.

When launched in the festive season period this year, the Boosterjet variant will rival premium, performance oriented hatchbacks like the VW Polo GT TSI or the Fiat Punto Abarth.
