Answers for this Question

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.

    Yes, you can get them fitted from the aftermarket, this facility isn't provided by the authorized service center. If you get them fitted from the after market, it is going to void the warranty of your car. Hence, we would not recommend you to go for it.

  • Hi I'm confused between getting an Elantra or Toyota Corolla Altis,

    Published On :2016-11-29 08:24:08.0 GOPINATH S

    Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla Altis

    Hyundai has decided to shake things up a little with the launch of the new generation Elantra. Toyota's Corolla Altis continues to be its biggest rival.

    Price:
    Thanks to aggressive pricing, the Elantra undercuts the Corolla Altis is terms of price. Most of the diesel variants of the Elantra are more expensive than those of the Corolla. However, it should be noted that Elantra's diesel engine is bigger and more powerful.

    Specifications:
    The new Hyundai Elantra comes with a 2.0-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. Both engines are more powerful and produce more torque than the ones that power the Toyota Corolla. Also, Hyundai offers the diesel Elantra with an optional automatic transmission, something the Corolla misses out on. Toyota Corolla Altis’1.4 L diesel is a bit too small for a car in this segment. While it does give the car a price advantage, it affects performance severely.

    In comparison, the Altis Petrol fares much better than its diesel counterpart. However, the Elantra is still more powerful and produces more torque. Both cars can be had with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission.

    Exterior Design:
    Most modern Hyundai's these days get very attractive exteriors and the new Elantra is no exception. Although, the Altis has now become a familiar face, it still looks very modern and quite appealing. It is worth mentioning that Toyota will launch a facelift of the Corolla Altis next year.

    Interior Design:
    The next generation Elantra features a sportier look on the inside. Much like the exteriors, the interiors of the new car look more mature and less in your face than before. The Corolla Altis gets very stylish yet a highly functional cabin that is made up of high-quality materials. Its asymmetric layout looks very modern and is likely to age very well. Corolla Altis gets a dual tone black -beige colour theme.

    Features:
    While the base models skimp out on a lot of features, the top-end trims come packed with equipment. Toyota offers the Corolla Altis with only 2 airbags. Hyundai offers 6 airbags at least in the top-spec trims. Elantra also gets ventilated seats, which the Corolla doesn’t. Therefore, the Elantra is more feature rich than the Corolla Altis.

    Verdict: 
    The biggest advantage the Toyota Corolla Altis had over the Hyundai Elantra was its price. With the launch of the new model, that advantage has all but disappeared. Also, in terms of engines, features, etc. the Elantra seems to be better than the Corolla Altis.
