CarDekho Verdict

In spite of what the spec sheet suggests, the Baleno RS doesn’t feel biblically different compared to its regular cousin.

"The 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine, though refined and punchy, doesn’t add much to the already-fun package of the Baleno."

The reasons to pick the RS then, especially considering that whopping price premium remain limited to the sporty bodykit, and if you really like the turbo’d engine. For practically everything else, the Baleno Alpha does just fine.
