Maruti Suzuki Baleno Reviews

  • Maruti Baleno Zeta awesome hatchback!

    By Rahul
    I got Baleno Zeta version just last week and I am willing to share the experience I had. I was a little reluctant in picking Maruti as it comes with that budget brand tag, but do not at all regret my decision of buying the beauty from Maruti. Nexa showrooms are unlike the old Maruti showrooms. You receive a warm welcome. Now about the car...getting mileage around 20 average, comfort is great...specially liked the armrest for driver and co-passenger. If you have a budget of around 7.5 lakh, this is the best hatchback to go for.
  • Poor suspension and low mileage

    By Prabhat Gopalan
    Since purchase, the vehicle is showing very poor suspension even on very low speeds. The same was communicated to service centre during the first service and two times again but the service centre/workshop engineers were not able to rectify the problem sighting reasons that the suspension is same across the versions and can only be rectified by the company. This is very disappointing that the company like Maruti Suzuki is putting such kind of poor suspension in a vehicle they called premium hatchback and selling it through their premium showroom chain Nexa. Apart from the above low mileage issue (12-13 kmpl) is also a major concern in comparison of the claimed mileage (21kmpl).
  • Poor mileage & very light plastic components

    By Umesh Kejriwal
    I've been driving ZETA CVT since 2 months. Mileage is very poor about 11km/ltr as against promised 21km/ltr. One more thing which I did not like is the plastic component like dash board, door back supports, front and back bumpers, etc. are very light.
  • Awesome car of the year!

    By Vijay N Mane
    This is an amazing car and looks-wise best car. It's spacious and stylish. Unbelievable price!
  • Very bad vehicle

    By Sajan gowda
    I have purches this car last 8 days back it's now gearbox problem service center gm told its parts problem please don't buy baleno car

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Preview

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS hot hatchback has officially been launched in India. The Baleno RS has been priced at Rs 8.69 lakh and is available exclusively through the Nexa outlets. The new Baleno RS gets a 1.0 litre petrol engine. The turbo petrol Baleno RS makes 101 bhp and 150 Nm of peak torque. The Baleno RS gearbox is a 5-speed manual and there is no automatic in either AMT or CVT offered yet. Maruti’s regular hatchback Baleno, on the other hand, is positioned above the extremely popular Swift. Featuring similar looking head lamps, Baleno shares few styling elements with Swift. Inside the cabin, Baleno offers ample space and packs in features like blue lit instrument panel, TFT multi-information display and infotainment touchscreen among others. Dual airbags, ABS with EBD and seat belt with pre-tensioners are standard across line-up. Petrol variants draw power from 1.2 litre engine mated to five-speed manual transmission and there is also an option for a CVT unit. Fiat sourced 1.3 litre DDiS engine claims impressive mileage of above 27 km/l and is available with manual transmission.

Maruti Suzuki has launched the long awaited Baleno RS. It gets a slightly altered exterior look as compared to the standard Baleno. It has a new front mesh grille with a chrome bezel and a larger and sportier front bumper too. The front bumper also gets a lip spoiler/splitter, which has been finished in satin black. The car also gets a satin black side skirt and a set of 16-inch wheels that are identical to the standard car but painted in a shade of black. The rear bumper is also completely different with the lower half reminding us of the sporty Japanese hatchbacks from the late 90s and 2000s. The Baleno RS also gets a new and slightly larger spoiler as compared to the standard car.

With Swift being the only B segment hatchback to take on the more contemporary premium rivals, Maruti felt the need to introduce a new model. Positioned above the flagship model Swift, Baleno is priced aggressively between Rs 5.15 lakh and Rs 8.32 lakh. The  upmarket hatchback from Maruti is reminiscent of Swift which reflects on the front profile. Dimensionally, it is larger, more on the lines of rivals and gets a contemporary design, something Maruti cars have been missing on. Maruti has taken a long leap in terms of interior design and features, again something not seen usually on Marutis. Mechanically, Baleno is similar to Swift with same petrol and diesel units mated to five-speed manual gearbox, although there is an additional CVT missing on Swift. While there is no doubt about the credibility of the product, pricing plays a crucial role in making things work and for Baleno it got a perfect start, thanks to the competitive Maruti Suzuki Baleno price. Compared to rivals like Hyundai Elite i20, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz, Baleno has a relatively low price.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Exterior

When Maruti decided to segregate its premium range from the usual, it made sure the difference is conspicuous in the look, feel and experience. Baleno is a chic hatchback that gets a contemporary design on the lines of rivals. Reminiscent of Swift, front features honey-comb mesh grille with sleek chrome surrounding meeting with the projector head lamps. Lower side of bumper has air-dams and fog lamps. View from side is pretty impressive too, the tapering widow glass, prominent beltline, flared wheel arches and slightly sloping roof add to the overall appeal. Get to the back and you realise how much attention Maruti has paid to the design of the car. The protruding boot make things stand out for Baleno, other key styling elements like chrome garnish beneath the raking wind-screen, pointed spoiler and well-shaped tail lamps further accentuate the chic tail. 

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Interior

Step inside the cabin to be surprised by the premium interiors earmarked by modish design. Although, what remains a disappointment is the quality of plastic used on glovebox, door pads and dashboard. On the space front, Baleno scores well with ample room for occupants in front and rear seats. There is a large touchscreen placed on the v-shaped centre console and temperature dials are placed just beneath it. What stands out is the blue-lit instrument panel that adds to the premium appeal inside. Seat fabric is again not very upmarket and the use of silver accents inside is a bit overboard. Maruti has provided various storage points inside like cup holders, door pockets, bottle holders and back seat pockets etc. 

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Engine Specifications & Transmission

Under the hood, Baleno gets choice between two engines, the 1.2 litre petrol and 1.3 litre DDiS unit. The 1.2 litre engine powering the petrol range puts out 62kW at 6000rpm and 115Nm at 4000rpm. Diesel trims get the Fiat sourced 1.3 litre Multijet engine good for 55.2kW at 4000rpm and 190Nm at 2000rpm. Both the engines come mated to a five-speed conventional manual variants and CVT is available with select petrol trims. 

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Features

On the outside, Baleno gets body coloured door handles in lower trims and chrome finished door handles on higher variants. Honey-comb front grille gets chrome accent, ORVMs come with mounted indicators, back doors get spoiler, projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights and rear combination lamps with LED.  Cabin gets metal finish door handles, multi information speedometer with display and leather wrapped steering wheel.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Performance & Mileage

Fuel economy for diesel engine is rated at 27.39 km/l and petrol trims are claimed to deliver 21.4 km/l. The light body weight infers good power to weight ratio which reflects in the performance both in terms of fuel efficiency and while on the go. 

Baleno Accessories & Infotainment

Maruti’s SmartPlay infotainment system comes only on the range topping variant, while rest of the trims get audio system with FM/MO3/CD player. The remote control through Smartphone App is also restricted to top-spec trim along with other features like navigation system, voice command, Smartphone Connect/Apple CarPlay. Bluetooth, AUX-IN, USB port and steering mounted controls for audio are standard across line-up save for the base trim. 

Baleno Braking & Handling

Front axle features disc units and rear comes with drum units. Anti-lock-braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution is standard across line-up. 

Baleno Safety & Security

Dual front airbags for driver and co-passenger and ABS with EBD are standard across variants. The only feature that is exquisite to the top-spec variant is the reverse parking camera. Other eminent equipment aboard include anti-theft security system, front disc brakes, dual horn, auto head lamps, front fog lamps, front seat with belt pre-tensioners and force limiters, pinch guard power window for driver, auto dimming IRVM, driver side seat belt reminder, reverse parking sensors, rear wiper and washer and rear defogger. 

Baleno Comfort and Convenience

Comfort goodies aboard include central locking, remote keyless entry, power windows in front & rear, auto-up power window for driver, electrically foldable ORVMs, telescopic steering, tilt steering, adjustable head rests in front and rear seats, automatic AC in higher trims, front centre armrest with storage, 60:40 split rear seat, height adjuster for driver’s seat, front and rear accessory socket and push start/stop with smart key. 

Baleno Wheels and Tyres

Tyres are available in two size, 185/65 R15 and 195/55. Alloy wheels are provided on higher trims while other variants get full wheel caps. 

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Competition 

In the premium hatchback segment, Baleno fields against rivals like Hyundai Elite i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. Of all, the Korean make remains the toughest competition to Maruti Baleno. Buying decision in India is largely dependent on price of the vehicle and considering the price difference between both, Baleno is on the safer side.
