Maruti is working on a new SUV crossover based on its popular Baleno hachback that will come out in the future. The upcoming 2023 Maruti Baleno SUV Cross appears to be a close successor to the S-Cross. The latest spied pictures of the Baleno SUV Cross appear to be including a unique sloping roof. 

As consumers’ tastes shift toward compact SUVs, Maruti wants to increase its share in this sector by expanding its portfolio. Since the newly launched Maruti Grand Vitara is receiving a huge number of pre-orders, the Baleno SUV Cross will act as an affordable alternative.

It’s too early to guess the powertrain options attached to Baleno SUV Cross, the car is anticipated to be powered by a 1.0L BoosterJet turbo petrol mill. The transmission options should include both manual and automatic gearboxes.

Maruti Suzuki is expected to price the Baleno SUV Cross above its other Brezza SUV to seek the interest of compact SUV buyers. Also, we could expect Glanza Cross SUV based on the same platform similar to Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Urban Cruiser HyRyder twins, thanks to the Maruti-Toyota partnership.
