On the other hand, the Amaze only adds Rs. 90,000 or less if you want it with the CVT automatic transmission.

Petrol Engine Review

  • The Honda Amaze petrol makes the same power as the Baleno Hybrid.
  • While it has a decent power output, its torque is concentrated towards the top of the rev range.
  • The Amaze makes less torque and that too at a higher 4800rpm, which will greatly impact its drivability and in-gear acceleration.
  • The Baleno, with or without the hybrid will offer better drivability as it has more torque, which peaks sooner. The Hybrid will do an even better job at this as it’ll have an additional 50Nm of off-peak torque from the electric motor.
  • The Baleno petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the Amaze manual. Even with the non-hybrid engine, the Maruti Baleno beats the Amaze with ease in the mileage battle.

Is the Maruti Suzuki Baleno better than the Honda Amaze?

Price of the base variant of Maruti Suzuki Baleno is Rs. 5.64 lakh and Honda Amaze is Rs. 6.10 lakh (both ex-showroom). The Baleno non-hybrid petrol MT costs less than the Amaze but with the automatic, the Amaze has a slight advantage.

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno’s normal petrol engine makes less power while the hybrid engine matches the Amaze’s power figure. The Baleno’s torque output is what impresses us as it is marginally better and it comes in sooner than the Amaze’s. So, it’ll offer far better drivability than the Amaze petrol. The other thing impressive about the Baleno is its mileage figure. Even without the hybrid tech, the Baleno easily beats the Amaze in the ARAI fuel efficiency figures.
