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.
Hi, my father is looking to buy a new car. The only criteria he has is that it should have a smooth ride and should be the least bumpy. It will be chauffeur driven car for the most part. He frequently travels to remote parts in maharashtra where the roads are not very good (ground clearence may not necessarily be an issue. However, the roads are severely potholed to the extent that some parts dont feel like the road at all. Kindly Advice. My budget is Rs 60 lakhs
Hi Varun, there are few cars available that comes coupled with the requested features but all of them are exceeding the budget that you have planned.
Also, there are some cars that comes in your budget range but lacks some features. Some do not have Navigation system, some does not have Hill assist and some does not have Cruise control.

Any recommendation of shop for car exhaust systems? I am located in Victoria and the best possible area would be around the city of Melbourne. I am aware of Scott's Rods but they are too far away from me now and i cannot drive to Queensland.
