Suzuki Motor Corporation globally
premiered a new compact hatchback Baleno at the 66th IAA Frankfurt Motor Show
on September 15, 2015. Toshihiro Suzuki, President, Suzuki Motor Corporation
said, “The Baleno stands out in terms of styling and utility as well as in
terms of both driving and environmental performance. It is a car that will go
beyond—in all areas—what people have come to expect in a compact car.”
The car comes with a “Liquid
Flow” design theme, compact body, spacious interior, and efficient
powertrains—all on a new-generation platform. The new-generation platform, with
increased rigidity and reduced weight, enhances fuel efficiency, handling and
stability, while still achieving high levels of safety and NVH performance.
Talking of powertrains, the
Baleno is powered by a new 1.0 Boosterjet direct-injection turbo engine with high
torque output and SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki). It also has a 1.2 Dualjet
engine. Sporty profile that is low and wide, avant-garde front section,
wraparound windows, expressive character lines and gently contoured, continuous
surfaces convey elegance and power.
Innovative features on the
inside include advanced multi-information colour display, active cruise control
with speed limiter, and a Smartphone Linkage Display Audio compatible with
Apple CarPlay2. Seating for five people
features generous shoulder room in front, and generous legroom in the rear.
Exterior features include high
intensity discharge projector headlamps, with a black and chrome design that
emanates virility and sharpness, and LED position lamps, which also work as
daytime running lights, with inner lenses that produce an even line of light,
convey a high-tech impression.
“Guide me light” headlamps
help users find their way in the dark after leaving the vehicle or when
unlocking the doors by remote control. LED rear combination lamps give an
advanced impression due to an inner lens that projects an even beam.
Wraparound windows with
blacked-out A-pillars and black sashes add to a sporty look. A thin
roof-spoiler integrated into the flowing body lines help improve aerodynamic
performance.16-inch alloy wheels or 15-inch steel wheels have a mechanical
design that contrasts with the flowing design of the body.
A new S grade has also been added
to the lineup of the Vitara, which has been selling well since its launch in
spring 2015. With a 1.4 Boosterjet engine for enhanced driving performance and
a five-slotted front grille based on that of the iV-4 SUV concept model shown
at the previous Frankfurt show, as well as red accents throughout its interior
and other features to provide a sportier feel. The vehicle was on display at
