The Best( in class) Available Premium Hatchback.

for Alpha 1.2

Dear All readers, MS Baleno is the best Premium Hatchback available as compared within segment. The following are the some major points I liked - 1 - Safety First - Baleno has got 2 airbags and ABS with EBD standard in all model. Even if the weight of the car is less (Only 865 Kg), the Metal used is of high strength and durability. So, safety wise car is very safe. As for Indian roads, safety is must. 2 - Looks - Mind blowing, Fabulous, Absolutely Beautiful, Categorically Stunning, Regally Hot are some words come to my mind when I see it. The fludic design adopted by suzuki is just FAB. Also, the day time running lights with projector headlamps is Categorically Stunning. The Tail lamps with LED Cluster is just "Sone pe Suhaga". There are 6 colors available, i just liked Ray blue and Premium silver color. Premium silver color is way too premium. It has got 16" alloy wheels with 195mm which makes it look more hottie. 3 - Economy - 21.6 is ARAI Rating for Petrol. In city for B2B Traffic, we could easily get around 17 KMPL thats best in class fuel economy. 4 - Pricing - Pricing is very attractive - Cheaper than competitors(i20, Jaaz and Polo), and all good accessories package available. Zeta Model available is loded with almost all accessories which is required. Alfa is top variant. It is loaded with all best in class accessories and you could get that model in 0.85M on Road (Pune). 5 - Space It has hell lots of space. Very large shoulder room and leg room as compared to i20, Figo, Jaaz, Ameo, Polo etc, etc. I could say the leg room is more than Honda City. Also, the boot space is enough for a family to carry for vacation for say 4-5 days. The boot space is second best in class (1st is Jaaz). 6 - Drive Pleasure - Driving this car is very pleasurable. It has 1997 cc 4 cylinder engine which generates 84bhp power. But the weight of car 865 kg. so Power generated per tonne is 97bhp. So generally the competitors are nearly 1050 kg. as compared to that 97bhp / tonne is huge. The torque churned by engine is around 110nm @ 4000RPM. If you apply same logic of per tonne, you will get a super sonic pickup in the car that too with great fuel economy. So, you get a awesome feeling while driving. I have gone up to 140 kmph on highway for very longer duration, there was no shaking and wobbling or vibrations. The car was quiet as standstill. Also, the ride handling at that speed was very good. And no worries as you have got ABS with EBD to reduce your speed immediately without loosing the control over the car. And one more thing, the 16" alloy wheels give it more stability on road at high speeds. The visibility is great in front. but in back the C pillar is thick so its bit less, but its enough. During parking you have wide angel rear view camera which again will suffice. In city as pickup is higher, you could overtake easily and go through b2b traffic. The turning radius is also short. It has got good suspension to absorb bad city roads just you have to maintain Tyre pressure. In all, its a full package car. It has got enough safety, got awesome looks, economically its just top in all competitors, very satisfying driving pleasure and comfort.
