Jees George's review on Maruti Suzuki Baleno 1.2 Alpha
Year of Manufacture : 2016 | Driven no. of Kms. : 900
- Pros: There was lots of complaints regarding the suspension of Baleno. Well the good news is, Maruthy has resolved this issue 6months ago. So people who booked within this period wont face any suspension issue. Till now I didnt find any issue.
- Cons: Interior built quality has to be improved. There should have been a manual volume adjustment knob.
I had done a lot of research before buying Baleno alpha. I had done test drive of i20 and Jazz too. Initially I was more attracted towards i20 because of its ride comfort. But then I realised, I have to pay around 40K more for i20, almost same features, very low fuel efficiency(i20) and higher maintenance cost. Mileage is a big factor. I would like to share a personal experience. My friend bought i20 elite astha top varient. We both argue for which one is better. One fine day we went for a road trip of around 400Km (Kozhikode to Thiruvananthapuram). We both filled the fuel for 1500INR when it was in reserve. But he had to refuel it before reaching. Baleno reached the destination like a boss. For a rough calculation- 1500INR 400kms - i got an avg of 19kmpl.. He was getting max 15kmpl.
