Maruti Suzuki has begun shipping their premium hatchback Baleno to Europe just before its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show. Suzuki Motor Corp. will officially unveil the hatchback for the European market tomorrow at the show, followed by its launch soon.

The exports of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno to Europe began this month. The first consignment to Europe is of 1,800 Balenos, all of which are manufactured by Maruti Suzuki India. Exports took place from Adani Group’s Mundra Port in Gujarat and all of these Balenos will be sold in European countries including Belgium, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and Spain.

Cosmetically, the Europe-spec Baleno is the same as the one sold in the Indian market. However, the powertrains are different. Instead of the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine options, mated to a five-speed manual, the European model will be powered by the 1.2-litre petrol mill with SHVS tech. The 1.0-litre BoosterJet engine will also be offered. The transmission options will include the five-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.

Suzuki Motor Corp. will unveil the India-made Baleno at their pavilion at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show tomorrow. The event will be open to the press on March 1 and 2; and then to the general public from March 3 to March 13. More details will be available tomorrow.
