    Baleno flat torque is one good reason to drive baleno, with flat torque you don't have to shift gears very often in slow traffic and hilly roads. Steering is direct and give high confidence while driving Only downside is looks and dull dashboard Read More

Review of Maruti Baleno

UPDATED: Read detailed roadtest of the Baleno (click to read)

Crisp Summary: The Baleno is Maruti's ticket into the premium hatchback segment. It is positioned above the Swift and rivals cars like the i20, Polo and the Jazz. The Baleno is a very important car for not only Maruti but Suzuki as well - it will be sold across the globe and will be exported from India as well. 
The Baleno is under 4 meters in length and the design is pretty catchy. It is a wide hatchback but sits pretty low and this gives it a sporty stance. The front end is dominated by a smile shapred chrome outline that runs from under the chrome, all the way to the 'eye lids' of the headlamps. Side profile is where you get to see the rising shoulder line which tapers off into the tail light area slightly. Rear of the Baleno is rather interesting with well finished tail lamps and a horizontal chrome line running across the width of the car. Loading lip of the Baleno is placed very high though and this could be an issue when you have couple of heavy suitcases to lift around. But at 339 litres, the boot is the second biggest in the segment after the Jazz.
On the inside, the Baleno impresses a lot. Its just not the space on offer but the long list of features and the feel good factor that has the ability to keep customers and their families happy. It also gets a touch screen infotainment system (like the Ciaz and the new Ertiga) and the cabin seems well put together for this price. Our only grouse is the 'low' and 'hammered' in feeling which is due to the low roof height. Space at the back is excellent and you can easily seat three adults without a fuss. 
The Baleno gets a choice of two engine options - a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.2-litre diesel. Both these motors are also seen on other Maruti offerings. Though the power and torque outputs of the two engines are not class leading, the low kerb weight of the Baleno really helps. Infact, the car is approximately 170 and 240 kilos lighter than the Jazz and i20 respectively. As a result, performance from both the engines is really good. The petrol engine is also offered with an optional CVT and the car will soon get a 1.0-litre Boosterjet (or turbocharged petrol) unit by end 2016. 
Priced from Rs 4.99 lac onwards, the Baleno offers terrific value for money and is a serious contender for the hatchback of the year award. Safety is taken care of by offering ABS and dual airbags as standard even in the base version! Note that the Baleno is only being sold via Nexa dealerships but yet has managed to become the 2nd largest premium hatchback in India and is giving the Elite i20 sleepless nights.

The Baleno top end version comes with keyless entry and start-stop which means you can enter the car by pressing the black button on the door handle while the key is in your pocket. The Swift suffered from lack of space on the inside but the Baleno has surprised everyone. It offers more space than the Elite i20 and its easy to seat five adults in comfort. It also offers 339 litres of boot space which is way more than that of the Swift but more on that later. However, due to the a low roof (the Baleno is the lowest car in the segment) headroom is limited especially at the rear. 
The Baleno has an all-black theme on the inside, broken well by clever usage of silver and chrome inserts. That said, quality of materails isnt a match for the Elite i20 which feels 'richer' on the inside. From the driver's seat, what catches your fancy is the speedometer console - definately the most funkiest of all the premium hatchbacks. But it is functional as well - it shows the power and torque curves, average and instantenous fuel economies, tank range, driving time and outside temperature. The steering wheel looks good and feels great to hold and gets controls for audio system and voice commands. The wheel does not get thumb contours but we like the little detailing in the form of chrome inserts at 3,6 and 9pm slots. Neat. And the steering has both tilt and telescopic adjustment. 
On the right of the steering is the start/stop button and a small place to keep your wallet. You also notice the provision for accessory buttons under the start/stop button - we guess the international version has this area very busy. 
The top end model gets your attention thanks to the segment first Apple CarPlay system which is similar to the one seen in other cars like the S-Cross. This is a 7" touchscreen system that lets the user pair his iPhone with the system - the screen also doubles up as a rear camera and has navigation as well. 
The climate control sits below the infotainment system and has a sharp sloping desing with controls finished in silver. The Aux-in and USB ports are located in front of the gear lever and so is the charging outlet. There are two compartments under this for knick knacks and your cups or mobiles. 
In terms of storage places, you can place one litre bottles in the doors, there is a front arm-rest with storage space and a glovebox that is not cooled like the one found in the i20. 
The Baleno has impressive rear seat space, so much so that it is easy to seat five adults. There are no rear ac vents or an arm-rest but the car impresses us with its massive boot. Rear passengers also get a charging outlet which is located at the back side of the front arm-rest console. There is also a place to keep your mobile phone while its been charged. The rear windows also roll dowm completely which will be a hit with Indian families. Now while the rear bench gets a 60:40 split, it does not fold flat complately.
