Maruti Baleno Exterior

Exteriors

Publicized as the world-class car from MSIL, this premium hatchback carries a unique liquid flow design. It is a specific sculpture based on energetic mass of water in motion that renders powerful styling and highly defined curves to its body. The build quality and the finish it gets is far superior unlike other models present in company's portfolio. Its front facade has a V shaped radiator grille underlined with a chrome strip. This feature is not available in the base version. The headlight cluster has a swept-back design featuring projector lamps and LED DRLs as well. Being a premium grade hatch, it also gets body colored bumper on front and rear facets. Its front bumper commands sporty cues, which adds bold appeal to this classy front facade. Coming to the sides, it even alluring than any other company's model, thanks to its beautiful curves and window frames. Except the C pillar, all the others are coated in black. The outside rear view mirror caps are done up in body color giving a sense of elegance to the sides.

Its width measures at 1745mm, while the height is 1500mm. The wheelbase is pretty long with 2520mm, but the ground clearance is normal with 170mm.

Maruti Baleno Interior

Interiors

Its interiors styling is just a continuation of its exterior elegance that emulates richness from every corner. It has a black colored interior cabin, which gives a soothing effect to the eyes. Also there are metallic accents given on the door handles and gear knob that further elevates the regal stance of the cabin. Apart from the base Sigma trim, all the other trims are provided with a three-spoke multi-functional steering wheel that eases the operation of audio and call function. Its dashboard has a design that reflects the cues of liquid-flow pattern of its outsides. There is an infotainment system placed elegantly on the central console, which can be accessed easily. As mentioned earlier, its ergonomic seating arrangement does explain why choosing Baleno will be the right choice. The seating arrangement is very comfortable or perhaps better than any other hatchback in its class. Its driver's seat has height adjustment function, while the rear bench seat gets a split folding facility for improving the boot capacity.

Interior Comfort:

This recently launched vehicle is currently available for sale in a total of four variants as mentioned earlier. Sigma is the base version that has very limited amount of features and the list starts with central locking system, front power windows tilt steering, front seat height adjustable headrest and it goes on until manual air conditioning system. The next-in-line Delta has a better package with facilities like remote keyless entry, all four power windows with driver's side auto up/down facility, electrically adjustable outside mirrors with folding and rear seat headrests. This version also gets an automatic air conditioning system helping to keep the cabin pleasant for a pleasurable driving experience. Moving on to the Zeta trim, it gets features like steering with telescopic facility, follow me home headlamps, front center armrest, height adjustable driver's seat and push start/stop button with smart key. In addition to all of these, this trim gets a leather wrapped steering wheel and a multi-information speedometer with display. These features are also available in the top end Alpha version.

Interior Measurements:

This Baleno has a large boot compartment of 339 litres, which is perhaps the most for a hatchback. The space inside the cabin is also generous, especially with good leg and shoulder space. Overall, this vehicle has enough space inside to provide a comfortable traveling experience to five passengers.

Maruti Baleno Gear

Acceleration & Pick-Up

ED's take: Baleno accelerates quick of the line due to its short first two gear shifts, Minimal turbo lag will mean that it will be delight to drive around the city & highways as well.

Its petrol version comes with two transmission options including the CVT automatic. This is the first Maruti Suzuki model to get CVT gearbox as an option that propels the car towards a top speed of 150 Kmph. This mill also powers the vehicle to break the 100 Kmph mark in just 14 seconds. Its manual version can also achieve the same top speed, but it is quicker in terms of pickup, since it can accelerate from 0 to 100 Kmph in just 12 seconds. Its diesel version is not as good as its petrol versions in this regard, as they requires about 16 seconds to break the 100 Kmph mark. However, they can go upto a top speed ranging between 155 to 160 Kmph.

Maruti Baleno Engine

Engine and Performance

ED's take: Performance of the 1.2-litre VVT petrol & 1.3-litre oil-burner is good, it doesn't run out of steam even on open roads or highways. Due to its lighter weight in comparison to its competitors it feels extremely powerful.

The manufacturer has launched this model series with a choice of two engine options. One is the 1.2-litre VVT petrol motor that has MPFI fuel injection technology. It comprises of 4-cylinders based on DOHC valve configuration. This engine received no tweaks and it continues to produce 83.14bhp of power at 6000rpm and 115Nm of torque at 4000rpm. This petrol motor is available with a five speed manual and a CVT automatic transmission options. The diesel versions are powered by a 1.3-litre oil-burner, which is integrated with common rail fuel injection technology. This power plant churns out 74bhp of power at 4000rpm that results in a pounding torque of 190Nm at 2000rpm. This engine's transmission duties are handled by a five speed manual gearbox that sends out torque to the front wheels.

Maruti Baleno Mileage

Mileage

ED's take: Baleno has impressed one and all with its mileage, by virtue of light weight body & smaller engine it has become one of the most fuel efficient car in its class.

To the surprise of everyone its petrol versions are currently the most fuel efficient in its class. Its 1.2-litre VVT mill with MPFI technology is capable of returning a mileage of 21.4 Kmpl, which is perhaps the best. The other one is a 1.3-litre DDiS oil-burner, which is also quite good in terms of mileage. This mill powers the car to give away a peak mileage of 27.39 Kmpl.

Power of Maruti Baleno

ED's take: The power of Baleno makes you feel alive, the refinement of the motor is top notch. It has a lighter clutch & slick gear shifts make it extremely powerful.

Its 1197cc petrol motor is a 4-cylindered one, based on the DOHC configuration. This mill can churn out 83.14bhp of power and a torque of 115Nm. Its diesel version is also based on the same configuration like its petrol version. This 1248cc mill has the ability to unleash 74bhp along with a torque of 190Nm.

Maruti Baleno Accessories

Stereo & Accessories

ED's take: Baleno is loaded with integrated music system with all the latest connectivity options, steering mounted audio controls, Apple Smartphone users will relish the fact that it comes with Apple CarPlay.

Like other premium hatchbacks, this Baleno too houses a quality audio unit featuring FM/CD/MP3 player. Accompanied with this is the Bluetooth connection, whose controls are placed well on the steering wheel. Also, there are connectivity options like USB port and AUX-In. These features are given to all, expect their Sigma version. The top of the line Alpha trim gets a SmartPlay infotainment system as standard equipment. It also includes navigation system, voice command and a facility for smartphone connectivity and Apple CarPlay.

You can now buy Maruti Baleno accessories online. Great discounts available.

Braking & Handling

ED's take: Brakes in Baleno feel spongy, ABS & EBD make it feel progressive but it lacks that initial bite, Handling is top notch as it feels extremely comfortbale on bad/bumpy roads.

This hatchback gets ventilated disc brakes for its front wheels and drum braking system for rear ones. Interestingly, all the variants are being offered with ABS and EBD, which aids the braking mechanism. As for the suspension, its front axle is fitted with a McPherson strut and the rear one has torsion beam type of mechanism. It also gets a reliable electric rack and pinion type of power steering system that ensures better response.

Maruti Baleno Safety and Security

Safety & Security

ED's take: Baleno has active safety features with ABS & its TECT body structure makes it one of the safest cars in its segment.

This hatchback is built with Suzuki TECT body structure that creates a safety shell for passengers and minimizes any form of risks in the event of an accident. Moving on to the features, its Sigma version gets essential factors like anti-theft security system, ABS with EBD, dual horn, headlamp leveling device, dual airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioner, seatbelt force limiter and driver seatbelt reminder.
