Nice car

I have seen various models in Maruti Suzuki make car's...but i really inspired by this Baleno...its really a Made of Mettle..it looks more sturdy car...European lookand meets latest trend...right now i have maruti suzuki Alto K10...which is a perfect peppy car but having space constraint...and also i am not compromise about build quality and sheet thickness of the maruti suzuki car's...but Baleno meets European's requirement...like airbag, ABS & EBD, Body style & Crash test too...Baleno having good spacious, good comfortable, having loaded with lots of features...i like the top variant Head light (Projector)...and tail light (LED)...during hyundai Elite i20 launch i feel that...equal premium hatch back like rival look and loaded features car noting is there in India.... but now Maruti Suzuki proves that have better model to rival Elite i20....Baleno gives good response from India....its keep going...What I like:? A well-priced, smart looking hatchback? User-friendly cabin with loads of space! Can easily seat 5 tall adults? Accommodating 339 liter boot. The 2nd biggest among hatchbacks (after the Jazz)? Peppy petrol, efficient diesel & smooth automatic - take your pick? Comfortable ride quality matched to neutral handling? Dual Airbags & ABS with EBD are standard across all variants!? Maruti's excellent after-sales service & fuss-free ownership experience? Loaded with features such as UV-cut glass, projector headlamps + DRLs, reversing camera, Apple CarPlay, navigation, electrically-foldable ORVMs and moreWhat I won't like:? Ordinary interior quality is Swift-like. Several budget grade parts in here? Rear seat headroom & under-thigh support are limited for tall passengers? Light build quality (weighs merely 865 kilos). Lacks the solidity of its rivals? CVT variant only in Delta trim (one above base). Suffers from rubber-band effect on the highway too? More substantial & premium Elite i20 is priced only Rs. 17,000 - 37,000 above? Waiting period running over 4 months for some variants / cities? Sold exclusively through Nexa outlets. Limits the reach of the car.The old versus the new Baleno. Other than the name, they have nothing in common, not even their body style. Maruti will be pleased with one differentiator though - if the initial 40,000 bookings are anything to go by, the 2015 Baleno is a strong seller! Last month, Maruti shipped out a whopping 9,000 Balenos.We 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. Then, Maruti pulled off a coup by pricing it closer than expected to the Swift. The Baleno's positioning became clear right then. If you like the Swift, but want something bigger, the Baleno is for you. While the Swift is still a competent hatchback selling over 17,000 units each month, those looking for more cabin space, better quality and a more upmarket feel were forced to look outside of a Maruti showroom.With the introduction of the Baleno, Maruti has given its customers an option to upgrade 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. That's in conflict with brand Nexa's positioning as the Baleno isn't a 'truly premium' car. The smaller Nexa network will also limit the reach of the car across India. We find it to be a flawed strategy.Also i am eagerly expecting Baleno RS....i like it...
