A safe & reliable hatchback that is a joy to drive

Suzuki is well known for designing reliable small cars and the Baleno is no exception! This hatch is zippy to drive and light on fuel but it is also a budget beater when it comes to maintenance alongside some key features that help keep you and your passengers safe.

The new generation Baleno offers advanced safety features which protect both you and pedestrians, wherever you are. This leading safety technology comes standard on all models. 

  • Pedestrian Injury Mitigating Body:

    The Baleno's bonnet, fenders, front windscreen wiper area, and other key areas are engineered to absorb impacts and reduce leg, and head injuries to pedestrians in the event of an impact.

  • ABS:

    The anti-lock braking system prevents wheels from locking in an emergency braking situation, allowing you to continue to steer the car.

  • Hill Hold Control:

    During standing starts on slopes or hills, Hill Hold Control prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when the driver releases the brake.

  • ESP:

    The Electronic Stability Program detects wheel slippage through wet or slippery conditions or sudden sharp turns and automatically adjusts torque and brakes to help the driver to maintain directional control.
    *ESP is a registered trademark of Daimler AG
  • Airbags:

    The Baleno is equipped with front airbags, additional curtain airbags, and side airbags on the GLX model, to protect the driver and passenger in case of collision.

“As is the case with most Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki's cars are known for their build quality and reliability. And, among the Far East brands, it has established itself as a builder of appealing light and compact cars. [...]

Slotting in slightly above the Swift is the new Baleno B-segment hatchback. It is priced closely to the Suzuki Ciaz sedan, as well as the seven-seater Ertiga, and shares its engine with both those models, as well as the Swift. The Baleno's exterior design is not the most exciting, sure, and, while it certainly is more sophisticated, it's also a more conservative styling exercise than the perky Swift.
