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

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.

    Hey Mate,

    Thank you for showing trust in our services and writing to us.

    Hyundai has launched the mid-life facelift of the popular Grand i10 hatchback in the country. It has spacious passenger and luggage space and is best suited for city. It has made significant changes; exterior design, equipment and even the engines have been tinkered with for that 'new-car' feeling.

    Click here - Hyundai Grand i10

    Talking about performance, the Grand i10 is offered with both petrol and diesel powertrains, the diesel motor was not the most powerful in the segment - the only downside in an otherwise brilliant package. It does have peppy diesel engine & extra torque helps it potter around town easily.

    As far as mileage is concerned, Grand i10 (diesel) has a mileage ranging between 21.0kmpl(city) and 24.0kmpl(highway). These are claimed mileage & will vary as per one's driving style.

    On the other hand, it is lighter on pocket i.e. easier to maintain.

    If you will be driving around 50-70kms.(Approx.) a day, we will suggest you to go with diesel variant. Otherwise, if your driving will be less, than you can opt for petrol variant.

  • im planning to buy hyundai verna diesel1.6 automatic 4 speed but it got mixed reviews about performance of 1.6 diesel manual please share your view about 4 speed auto and 6 speed manual

    Published On :2017-07-15 15:33:00.0 By Arun

    Thank you for showing trust in our services and writing to us.

    It's good to see that you wish to buy car & thank you for making us a part of it.

    Hyundai Verna is one of the best-looking sedan in the segment & offered with one of the most power diesel engine in the segment.

    Coming to the performance, figures are same for both the variants which reflect similar power & pickup.

    Verdict:

    If you'll be driving more in heavy traffic conditions then we suggest you to pick for a Automatic Transmission variant to enjoy a hassle free ride. Otherwise, if you'll be driving more on highways/hilly areas then Manual Transmission Gear-box will be a better choice as you'll be having more command on the car.

    On the other hand, Service cost will be a bit on higher side in Automatic Transmission cars.
