The Baleno RS will come with the same palette of colour options as the regular Baleno, which includes Fire Red, Premium Urban Blue, Premium Silver, Autumn Orange, Ray Blue, Pearl Arctic White, and Granite Gray. As seen in the concept car at the Auto Expo 2016, the Baleno RS will feature a black mesh grille, sportier bumpers with larger intake, silver highlights, black-painted 16-inch rims, an aggressive rear bumper, and a roof spoiler.

The interior, however, looks mostly identical to the regular Baleno. The Baleno RS will only be available in a single, well-equipped variant, which will come with all the features seen in the Baleno Alpha, such as a keyless entry, Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED DRLs, LED taillamps, 4.2 inch color MID, auto dimming IRVM, 7 inch Smartplay with reverse camera and Apple CarPlay support, and automatic climate control.
