The South African version of the Baleno has been given all the same updates that its Indian version has received. However, a big difference has been kept between these two on the mechanical part. The new Baleno 2022 in South Africa has been given a 1.5 liter petrol engine. The same engine is also being offered in the Indian versions of Ciaz, S-Cross, Vitara Brezza, Ertiga and XL6. This engine is capable of generating 105 PS of power and 138 Nm of torque. The choice of 5 speed manual and 4 speed torque converter automatic gearbox is given with this engine. This car does not have an AMT gearbox in South Africa.

And features like cruise control have been given.
