I noticed that many people have commented about jerky ride and blamed suspension. Guess what, I had same experience. I found that cause was overinflated tyres.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Overview

Maruti Suzuki India’s Swift has been the most popular model in its portfolio, albeit it somehow got overshadowed by bigger hatches, like Honda Jazz and Hyundai’s Elite i20. Hence, Maruti had to bring a stronger contender in the arena to face off these B+ premium hatchbacks. More than the size, Jazz and Elite i20 have got newer elements that put them out of the league. From exterior styling to cosy interiors and stuffed cabins, these hatches have it all. Despite Maruti’s reign in the hatchback segment, it lacked a proper premium hatch that offered extra comfort. With Baleno, MSI has brought back the old moniker once used for its already-phased-out sedan, but it has nothing in common with the former. However, cues of similarity can be noticed among Swift, S-Cross and Baleno.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno Overview
To start with, the Baleno is a fairly large hatchback that gets Swift-resembling front fascia, but what brings uniqueness to the hatch is the side view and rear profile, which is very unlike a typical Maruti. There is profuse space inside the cabin, especially on the front. The material quality is still compromised, but equipment-wise, it is heeled well. Engine configuration is similar to Swift, which includes the same 1.2-litre, K Series petrol motor and Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine. Maruti Suzuki Baleno Overview
Fuel economy for the diesel version is hands down the best in the segment; at least the claimed mileage figures infer that. Pricing is bang on and is one of the strengths of the vehicle that add brownie points to its reliability. Maruti Suzuki Baleno Overview

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Exterior

Measuring 3995 mm long, 1745 mm wide and 1500 mm high, Baleno is a large hatchback with a bigger stance than Swift or, for that matter, arch rival Elite i20. The pictures of Maruti Baleno give a clear insight into the car’s imposing silhouette, which seems to be Maruti’s best work so far.
In the front projector head lamps, the reminiscent of Swift are equipped in the range-topping trim. The head lamp cluster also features LED daytime running lights. V-Shaped radiator grille on the front gets chrome accent and the body-coloured front bumper comes with air dams. The rear gets combination lamps with LED. Moreover, the protruded rear gets to be one of the highlights of the design, rendering the hatchback a contemporary semblance. Maruti Suzuki Baleno Exterior
Alloy wheels are available on the top-end trims, giving a miss to the entry- and mid-level variants. The A, B and C pillars are finished in black. The top-end trims get chrome outside door handles, while the rest of the range features body-coloured outside door handles. Outside rear view mirrors come equipped with integrated turn indicators. The ORVMs can be folded and adjusted electrically. Maruti Suzuki Baleno Exterior

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Interior

The wheelbase measuring 2520 mm may not be the best in the segment but indicates comfortable space for passengers on the front and rear. Maruti has utilized the space well. The thigh support is good on the front and there is enough leg room for the passengers seated at the back. What MSI has missed is superior-quality material; instead, it has used same-dated dials and, buttons and compromised plastic material. However, presence of contemporary features does make for this void.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno Interior
Instead of chrome finishing around the door handles and parking brakes, the hatchback gets metal finishing. The cabin is well illuminated. The multi-information speedometer display with colour TFT appears vivid amid the dark colour scheme. Leather is used only on the steering wheel, otherwise it is absent around the gear knob and door trims. Comfort gizmos aboard consists of a string of goodies, such as remote keyless entry, front/rear power windows, auto-up power window for driver, telescopic steering with tilt function, adjustable head rests in front/rear, automatic AC, height adjuster for driver’s seat, accessory socket in front/rear and push start/stop with smart key. Maruti Suzuki Baleno Interior
Besides the usual features, MSI has stuffed a Smatphone Connect/Apple CarPlay system in the range topping variant, although the lower trims get an audio system with FM/MP3 and CD player. Yet another exclusive feature available on the range-topping variant is the SmartPlay infotainment system, along with the navigation and voice command systems. Steering-mounted audio controls, Aux-In, USB port and Bluetooth are other significant features available on the hatch. Maruti Suzuki Baleno Interior

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Engine & Transmission

The two sets of engines have been inherited from the petrol versions of Maruti’s Swift hatchback. The petrol versions feature Maruti’s 1.2 litre, K-Series, DOHC petrol engine, developing 62 kW at 6000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.The diesel variants get the usual Fiat-sourced, 1.3 litre DDiS engine good for 55.2 kW at 4000 RPM along with 190 Nm at 2000 RPM. Maruti Baleno transmission options include a five-speed manual gearbox and a CVT tranny available only on the Delta petrol variant.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Mileage

Fuel economy delivered by the petrol-powered Baleno is 21.4 kmpl. The diesel variants, on the other hand, are capable of pulling off 27.39 kms in a litre, which is the best in the segment.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Braking and Safety

Power is retarded by disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. Anti-lock-braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution is a standard feature available across the model series. Dual airbags for the driver and co-passenger are also incorporated in the entire line-up. Among the vital safety fitments, front fog lamps, pinch guard power window on the driver’s side, reverse parking sensors, reverse parking camera and rear defogger have also been employed. Other than the above mentioned features, the hatchback gets dual horn, anti-theft security system, head lamp levelling, auto head lamps, front seat belt pre-tensioners, front seat belt force limiters, auto diming IRVM, driver side seat belt reminder, rear wiper and washer.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Performance and Handling

The petrol motor is far more agile than the lower power output version of 1.3-litre DDiS diesel motor. Even the automatic version is responsive; however, the diesel engine feels a little sluggish and noisy too. Although there are certain challenges related to each motor, Maruti hasn’t really risen above in terms of performance, but overall, the petrol variants are better performer than the diesel ones. The segment-best fuel economy on offer kind of makes for the lack of punchy performance on the road.

What do we think about Maruti Suzuki Baleno?

Maruti Suzuki India has got most of the boxes ticked, indicating that Baleno is here to stay, unlike the sedan version that had to retire. Ignoring the front fascia, rest of the body looks fresh adorned by chic design. Interiors are well equipped and offer good space, and even the storage space is commendable. Performance may not be as impressive as one would expect but mileage delivered is smashing. Yes, Maruti has hit the sweet spot. Baleno is likely to be the next popular model in the B+ segment.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Competitors

As mentioned in the beginning, Baleno’s strongest competitors in the B+ segment are Honda Jazz and Hyundai Elite i20. The respective auto makers have pumped in life in these models. Jazz has been transformed from being a sizeable car to a complete package with fresh dose of updates. Hyundai has been improving with each facelift. Design is its core and that cannot be denied. In terms of design, Elite i20 is the best option, but there are several other key elements that need to be looked upon. All the hatches have chic styling. Cabin space is the best in Elite i20. However, as for the interior styling is concerned, Baleno still lags behind. Feature-wise, all three are well equipped. In terms of practicality, Baleno being a Maruti tops the list. Mileage is another pro that makes Baleno the lead. Most importantly, as always, the price of Maruti Baleno is rightly tagged for Indian buyers.
