Baleno-Made for India...!!!
First of all i whant to tell u what i like about this car;User friendly cabin with loads of space , can easily seat 4-5 adults.comfortable ride quality matched with neutral handling.It is welled priced , smart looking hatchback.it has 339 liter boot(tank).comfortable ride quality matched to indian roads.its has lots of current tranding features such as Apple carplay,navigation,projector headlamps & DRLs, reversing camera,electrically foldable ORVMs and lots of other attrative requried features.BUT the things which don,t really like about it is; ordinary interior guality .rear seat headroom not enough for tall guys.etc.we all were always wondering where the new Baleno would fit in. If you see the pre-launch discussions, there was scepticism as we expected it to be priced higher. Maruti pulled off a coup by pricing it closeer than expected to the swift.Maruti has given its customers an option to upgrate to a product from its own stable. Because Nexa dealerships need to cover their investment, the company has decided to sell it through that premium dealership network.when i drive this car for70-90 speed for 190> km and after that i drove another 240>km speed between 80-100 and it gives milage around 22kmpl.Another one of the purpose of purchasing this car is milage and low cost of ownership which you will not get in other company.The company also gives various attrative colours( blue,white...etc)Its engine , gearbox and the performance are also somthing one can comfortably live with.The 83bp, 115Nm, 1.2 liter engine might seem run of the mill on paper. but, the way the baleno is geared, and its lightweight, gives the hatchback good driveability and highway performance. it doesnt feel light or floaty at speed either , something one might deduce gives its lightweight.The petrol versions of the Baleno are powered by the 1.2-litre K-Series VVT engine developing 83bhp and 115Nm of torque. The fuel efficiency of the engine is officially rated at 21.4kmpl and it is available with a choice of a five-speed manual or the CVT automatic transmission. The diesel engine is the same 1.3-litre multijet from the Swift producing 75bhp and 190Nm of torque. It uses the five-speed manual gearbox and has a claimed fuel efficiency of 27.39kmpl.The Baleno is based on an all-new platform and despite being bigger than the Swift in dimensions, the car is actually close to 100kg lighter.The Baleno is available in four trims ? Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The Sigma is the base level, while the Alpha variant is the top-spec with all the features. The CVT automatic transmission is available only with the Delta variant of the hatchback.Maruti Suzuki is offering the car in seven colours - ray blue, fire red, met premium silver, autumn orange, premium urban blue, pearl artic white and granite gray.The sharp design lines, sleek headlamps, wide honeycomb grille, diamond-cut 16 inch alloy wheels, sloping roof with a ?floating impression?, and neat taillamps culminate to form this dynamic, European design that I adore.On the other hand, the Maruti Baleno is one of the nicest looking Marutis currently sold. It adopts a cleaner exterior with curvaceous elements that highlight its new ?liquid flow? design theme. While the design of the front-end is a mixed bag, the Baleno starts to look pretty when you step towards the rear, where the sloping roofline, high waistline and raked windscreen give it a potent look.
