Stylish, spacious, and loaded with features. If “having your cake and eating it too” were a versatile hatchback, it would be the Baleno.
“Surely,” you think. “Nothing with that price tag can be this perfect.”
And you’re right. Our mistake when crafting the Baleno, was not making it cost more.
It Looks Like It Should Be Expensive But Isn’t For Some Reason
The new Baleno’s flowing curves and lines create an elegant and aerodynamic silhouette, instantly drawing attention from the street.
Stylish, advanced dash
The centrally located 7-inch touchscreen is user-friendly with a built-in satellite navigation system, display audio and smartphone connectivity using Bluetooth®, USB port, Apple CarPlay, or Android Auto™.
Refined interior touches
The new Baleno is not just about outer beauty. Its elegant and urbane styling extends into the interior of the car. The cabin is lined with high quality silver accents, which add highlights of sophistication.
Its low and wide stance along with the harmoniously flowing curves on its body give the Baleno an elegant, powerful look. Its front design and aerodynamic form give it a sporty style and grace that alludes most hatchbacks, but makes the Baleno appealing to all.
Colours to choose from
Made for You to Enjoy
The Baleno was meticulously engineered for maximum efficiency and comfort. People say that a lot, but we mean it. Straight up: there were some late nights and some missed events.
No, the Baleno’s advanced suite of features and comfy seats didn’t just happen; they were made for you to enjoy.
Power under the hood
The 1.4L engine delivers consistently strong power and the intake VVT, cylinder head and piston crowns are all designed to maximise fuel efficiency.
Choose your transmission
The 4-speed automatic transmission delivers powerful acceleration at low speeds and fuel efficiency at high speeds. The 5-speed manual transmission (GL) provides smooth and precise shift feel, for a more enjoyable and nimble drive.
Enhanced vehicle performance
The Baleno’s vehicle underbody has been revised with a new-generation platform called HEARTECT. The platform is light and rigid and improves performance and safety particularly when cornering and stopping. Vibration and noise are also kept in check, all while maintaining riding comfort.
Better Cost Per m2 Than Some Houses
“It has 355 litres of luggage space,” we tried to explain to our bosses. “It would be financially irresponsible for us to charge so little for the new Baleno.” But they didn’t listen. They just calmly said, “why charge more for empty space?”
It’s actually a really good point.
Leg room for days
The Baleno also has ample leg and shoulder room, ensuring the most comfortable experience possible for you and your passengers, while the multiple compartments offer proper storage availability and practicality.
Pack all your gear
The 355L* luggage space allows sideways stowage of long items and, by folding down the rear seats, it affords even greater space to accommodate all your items. As an added amenity, a luggage shelf offers additional privacy.
Crafted for your comfort
The fine-textured fabrics and elaborate patterns of the seating invite total relaxation within the cabin, while the navy seats add a touch of vibrance.
Added safety for your everyday
Occupant-protective SRS airbag system
Both the driver’s seat and front passenger’s seat come standard with SRS airbags, with curtain and side airbags helping to reduce further impact for enhanced safety.
Anti-lock brake system
This advanced system keeps tyres from locking and enhances your ability to avoid obstacles through steering. The electronic brake-force distribution optimally distributes front and rear braking force to help bring the vehicle to a safe and stable stop.
Light, impact-absorbing TECT body
Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology body helps protect the cabin in the event of a collision by efficiently absorbing and dispersing energy. It also widely employs high tensile steel to achieve both lightness and excellent safety performance.
