No, this is not the Baleno
that India got to see many years ago. That Baleno sedan flopped badly. In fact
this Baleno should have been the one that made its debut at the new premium
Nexa outlets set up in country... and not the S-Cross.
This all new Baleno, an ideal
hatchback from compact car expert Suzuki is set to make its world premiere at
the 66th IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. The debut of the full production version
follows on from the iK-2 Concept seen at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this
year. The Baleno harmoniously combines stylish design, spacious interior and
These new technologies include
the first application of the newly Suzuki developed 1.0-litre Boosterjet direct
injection turbocharged petrol engine that saves fuel while delivering driving
pleasure. Fuel efficiency has been improved by reducing engine displacement;
output and torque are boosted by using a turbocharger. Unfortunately, the new
S-Cross should have also been fitted with a petrol engine...like the one they are
promising for the new Baleno.
In addition to fulfilling fuel
efficiency and dynamic performance expectations, the layout has been optimised
and various technologies used to reduce weight in order to meet the rigorous
size and weight requirements specific to compact cars. The new Baleno will be
launched in the UK soon.
Further details of the Baleno
will be disclosed at the Suzuki press conference at the Frankfurt Motor show.
The conference will be held on September 15, 2015.
