Prepare yourself for one of the most impressive hatchbacks in this segment. The Suzuki Baleno have now hit our roads with an impressive selection of driver features as well as a spacious design, and have already attracted a wide range of drivers.
The new Suzuki Baleno has been dubbed a more family-friendly version of the Swift – and it’s easy to see why. An all-new platform features and the total length of 3,995mm is a full 100mm more than the Swift. It is also 50mm wider.
The cabin space is geared towards making it accessible for families with children or those who need to move a full car on a regular basis. With this in mind there are excellent levels of passenger head and legroom throughout, especially in the back. A 355-litre boot also provides more room than its Ford Fiesta or Honda Jazz competitors. Interior features include a refreshed dashboard that has the option of a seven-inch touchscreen display. You can also add Apple Carplay, giving you the chance to connect a smartphone to the vehicle to safely take calls, select music, check emails and browse social media on the move.
Under the bonnet the power comes from a choice of efficient engines. The Boosterjet 1.0-litre turbo petrol option produces 110bhp and 170Nm, which is impressive given the size of the engine. There is also a naturally-aspirated 1.2-litre Dualjet option. Either unit can be fitted with the five-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. If you are looking to dramatically lower your carbon footprint then the mild hybrid is the way to go. Assisting the 1.2-litre engine you will find an integrated starter generator, which helps to keep CO2 emissions as low as 93g/km.
