Difference Between Maruti Suzuki Fronx And Baleno

Difference Between Maruti Suzuki Fronx And Baleno

The Maruti Suzuki Fronx crossover is set to be on sale in the coming months, and reservations have already begun. The Fronx, based on the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, will compete with the Brezza under the Nexa brand. While we have already compared it to its Arena sister, this article will look at what distinguishes the Fronx from its parent car.

Design Inspired by the Grand Vitara

  • Both vehicles have unique looks. The Fronx has a broad grille with thick chrome strips and thin DRLs, whilst the Baleno has a more aggressive grille and sweptback headlights. It features an SUV-like appearance, similar to the Grand Vitara.
  • There are significant parallels in their profiles. The Fronx, on the other hand, sports blacked-out body cladding, hefty fenders, and wide wheel arches. Furthermore, the roof rails and extended rear end give the Fronx a more rough and crossover-like appearance.
  • Similarly to the front, the modifications in the rear are rather dramatic. The Fronx has an entirely unique tailgate design with linked LED tail lights, whilst the Baleno has a more standard LED splitter.
  • Because to its upright form, body cladding, and pseudo skid plates, the Fronx seems more butch overall. The Baleno, on the other hand, is definitely a hatchback.
  • Despite sharing the same Heartact platform as the Baleno, the Maruti Suzuki Fronx is somewhat longer, broader, and higher, owing to the enlarged body components. The wheelbases of both cars are equal, but if you choose the Fronx, you will have to sacrifice cargo room.

Interior Design and Features

  • The Fronx features the same dashboard layout as the Baleno, but it has a burgundy-and-black motif instead of the Baleno’s blue-and-black design.
  • Both vehicles have automatic headlamps, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an Arkamys-tuned sound system, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic AC, rear AC vents, an auto-dimming IRVM, a heads-up display (HUD), a 360-degree camera, up to 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP with hill-hold, and much more. The sole difference between the two is that the crossover has a wireless smartphone charger and wireless integration compatibility for cellphones.

Powertrain

Maruti Suzuki equips the Fronx and Baleno with the same 90PS/113Nm 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine, which is available with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT transmission. The Baleno lacks the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine option found in the Fronx, which produces 100PS and 148Nm of peak torque. This engine is available with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
