Maruti Baleno

for Alpha 1.2

It has smart storage spaces, it's well equipped, and it has comfy seats and spacious insides. It is also easy to drive, the 1.2-litre petrol engine doesn't feel anemic, and apart from the stiff ride, there's very little not to like about it. But, it might be a different story out on the highway with the Baleno being loaded to the brim and it having to tackle gradients and cross winds. Handling gradients is an even bigger challenge for a fully loaded Baleno. If the winding road isn't too steep and the corners are flowing, the momentum pulls the car through without warranting too many downshifts. However, around steeper climbs, especially hairpins bends, the Baleno needs high revs and constant shifts to make decent progress. Now, given the Maruti Baleno's lack of weight, one might assume that the car won't feel as stable as the competition especially at three digits speeds. But, it does, even with just the driver. It doesn't feel flighty, isn't affected by cross winds much, and is completely planted under quick lane change no matter what speed. It brakes well too. Here the lack of weight helps. It has strong braking power, which is easy to modulate, and there's hardly a twitch even under hard braking.
