One of the best-kept secrets in the supermini class, the Suzuki Baleno has a great deal to offer at remarkably low pricing.
The smart grille is flanked by sleek, stylised front lights, with a swept-back windscreen completing the sophisticated appearance. All models have LED daytime running lights, which look classy as well as enhancing visibility, and higher-spec editions have rear privacy glass
Boot capacity measures a very generous 320 litres, and if you need to transport large items you can extend this to 756 litres by folding down the rear seats. There is plenty of space in the cabin too, with ample legroom for adults to sit comfortably in the rear. The interior features smart upholstery and finishes, with a leather-trimmed steering wheel fitted on all Balenos.
The lightweight platform means that the Baleno is agile and fun to drive. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder 109bhp engine gives you a return of 62.7mpg and CO2 emissions are 105g/km. There is also a 1.2-litre Dualjet edition, which gives you 67.3mpg. If you want to do your bit for the planet, look out for the 1.2-litre mild hybrid edition which incorporates a lithium ion battery to help improve fuel efficiency and cut down on CO2 emissions. It also gives an acceleration boost at low speed.
As ever, Suzuki provides plenty of features and equipment. A CD player, DAB radio and USB connection are fitted across the range, with Bluetooth® connectivity for safer, hands-free operation of the audio system and for making phone calls. All models have a colour touchscreen for infotainment in the central console, and SZ5 editions also have a screen in the instrument panel to display vehicle data. Sat nav functionality is included in the higher trim models.Check out our current selection of used Suzukis online or visit our SMC showrooms in Kent and London where our helpful advisors will be happy to show you our latest Baleno models.
