Certain user reviews about Maruti Baleno says that it has very poor rear suspension. Is it true?. Also it is heard that Baleno is made by using light weight material. Is there is any safty problem due to this light weight material
The Baleno is equipped with McPherson struts in front and a torsion beam rear suspension. The suspension struts at the rear eat up a little boot space, as they intrude into the cabin. Ride quality is good, although at high speeds the car does feel pretty light. If you hit a rough patch, it does tend to get thrown about – and that’s where you feel how light it is. The Baleno is tuned more for comfort than sportiness, which is a good thing. With 170 mm of ground clearance, the car can handle its fair share of bad roads too. The brakes are sharp and at par with the Maruti Swift’s braking ability.
A big talking point in the new Baleno is, the fact that it has the new platform which makes it lighter and stronger plus, we may add that in terms of build quality it feels the best from Maruti with both paint finish and overall build being very good.
Well - as per Maruti Suzuki - one of the prime reason for weight reduction is all new chassis
As per manufacturer - this new chassis is even more rigid and basis the highlights "The innovative new platform has improved the crash resiliency, enhanced the rigidity and improved NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) performance."
Maruti has offered ABS with EBD with dual airbags as standard, which to us is reason enough to buy the Baleno.
We have not heard of any complaints regarding the suspension of the Baleno. In fact, when we had the car for the review, it quite impressed us. In my opinion, it could be a problem or an issue with a particular piece, let that not spoil your choice of car. The only issue that has to come light with respect to the Baleno is the fact that it has long waiting periods and that is there because it is actually a nice, well-rounded package.
Based on the comparison on CARDEKHO.COM i purchased a Honda BR-V Diesel S Manual. It was mentioned in the comparison chart that this vehicle complies with BS IV norms but the Road Tax receipt shows the registration of the vehicle as BS III and also the guaranty / warranty condition of the vehicle guaranty the vehicle to BS III norms only. Will you please clarify...
Mate, the BR-V comes with BS-IV emission norms. Now a days, all the cars that are getting launched in India are coming with BS-IV emission norms only. There must be some issue with the Road Tax Receipt and other documents. Request you to kindly get this checked with the dealership and the RTO Authorities.
