Maruthi Baleno: oodles of space minus power

We bought Silver colored Baleno Petrol Zeta last December(2016) and we drove 6000 kms until now with no problems at all. One thing anyone would like about Baleno is interior space and comfort. Zeta variant in petrol or Diesel is best as you get almost everything in that model except for touch screen infotainment and led projector head lamps which I think are not necessary and can depend on one's desire. The ride comfort is good if not best in class. The styling of the car isn't contemporary but like all Maruti's it has good appeal and mileage which every Indian brags about.What I don't�like? Firstly, 16 inch alloys suck on this vehicle(Maruti addressed this issue in August 2016 with suspension setup but still I and my friends don't like it. 15 inch wheels on lower models have better set up) and they make sure entire occupants in car feel even small bump on roads and also throw you around if you don't slow down. From my own experience, I can claim, I20 can better handle potholes and speed bumps. Secondly, If you are looking for performance from the engine then this isn't a vehicle for you and you should probably opt for Honda Jazz or any other vehicle. Thirdly, Never drive Baleno above 120-130kmph..should any unfortunate incident occurs, it would turn fatal as the body isn't strong even though they compensated with 2 airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners and ABS. Maruti claims higher mileage than its competitors only because it's entire portfolio weigh less than 950kgs except for Ertiga & Ciaz which also weigh less when compared to it's class of vehicles.

I would suggest you buy Baleno if you are looking for city and highway driving with a big boot and good interior leg space and no expectations regarding performance though it has adequate power to satisfy you in city driving.
