Excellent Car..

Baleno RS or Road Sport is a brilliant car and I think it has outstanding features. It is a very light car with extra speed and rare disc brakes. The engine is the talk of the town which is a 998cc with three cylinder unit imported from Suzuki’s Boosterjet range. The car is phenomenal with amazing exteriors and Baleno design in front along with a projector head lamp. Talking about the interiors, I got more leg space and extra comfortable seats. I bought the one from Baner NexaPune with black interiors which gives it a sophisticated appeal. The car is designed to provide more practicality and is the best-looking car from Maruti-Suzuki.
