Pros : Looks, Boot space

Cons : Back seat support, Rear shockers, Low mileage


Over the 1000Kms that I have done with the Baleno, here are the plus and minus points of my ownership till date:-

Plus points

1. The car looks great on the outside. It has a big stance on the road.

2. It has a big boot.

3. Front seats are comfortable and have reasonable headroom.

Minus points

I own about four cars currently and I did a lot of research on this car before purchasing. However, I am disappointed on the following fronts.

1. Low Mileage - So far it is around 13km/litre. I hope this increases after service. This was among one of the main reasons of buying this car of Maruti brand.

2. Worst Back Seat comfort - This car needs more of thigh support for the back seat passengers. This becomes problematic if travel duration is more than an hour.

3. Issues with Rear Shockers - Even if we drive slowly over a smallest of the pot hole, there is a definite thud which is felt by the passenger sitting on the rear seat. This issue was confirmed to me by other car owners as well. I hope Maruti comes out with a solution to this. This can actually affect Maruti's future for this car.

    Of all the problem mentioned by u the most irritating is rear suspension! So dumb it is.. Maruti shd call back to rectify it as well. Its not fit as of now looking on to indian road condition.

    BALENO DELTA AT PETROL Whats the problem: 1. The suspensions don't really work much - The ride of Baleno is way too bumpy. 2. The poor suspensions does nullify the premium-ness of the car and gives very-very poor ride quality. 3. When compared, we could find that even car cheaper than Baleno have better suspensions and ride quality. I won't wonder if suspension reduces your sales numbers.

    I own a baleno Delta petrol version and after 5000kms of run, I found that Rear suspension is worst in Baleno, as my family memebers sitting on the rear side are very much irritated to travel as bumps are more, and we cant travel longer distances above 100kms with this type of suspension..Maruruti should recall and fix this isuue ASAP, otherwise sales will drop

    dayanand |13 Mar,2017 04:56:41 PM

    right a m agree with u

  • Dfghjkk |20 Feb,2017 10:52:38 PM

    Your getting mileage is totally wrong, because i got 19 km/lit on highway...

  • Rajashekar |17 Mar,2017 01:00:10 PM

    My Baleno Delta has done 5000 km and the rear suspension needs to be changed, please recall before the defect is highlited by many people.

  • neha |22 Mar,2017 02:49:57 PM

    Suspension is really very poor ...ride is not at all comfortable its rather too bumpy and not feel like you are riding a premium segment car

  • zahid |23 Mar,2017 03:28:09 PM

    The rear suspension is an acknowledged and unresolved problem faced by all Baleno owners.The manufacturers have decided to ignore the issue in spite of several complaints from my end

  • SANJIV TRIKHA |07 Apr,2017 12:12:44 PM

    I agree that Baleno has very very poor suspension and I am sorry that I have bought this car. Maruti should address this problem

  • SUNDEEP MONGA |26 Apr,2017 04:01:49 PM
