You can see the car’s specs in detail here, but here are some of the features that make this award-winning car a firm favourite internationally:
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.
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.
The anti-lock braking system prevents wheels from locking in an emergency braking situation, allowing you to continue to steer the car.
During standing starts on slopes or hills, Hill Hold Control prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when the driver releases the brake.
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.
“Suzuki has refined the Baleno’s face with a new upper grille section, a more striking front bumper and a revised lower air intake. The fog lamps have also been repositioned to suit the new look.
South African specification has yet to be confirmed but models currently on sale in India are fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels as well as LED projector headlights.”
