- If you are looking for a hatch that ticks a lot of boxes, the Baleno is a great option. There's good feature list, efficient engine options and more space than a number of more expensive sedans. While the Altroz does not manage to set a new standard in the segment, it will fit right into the mix with a long feature list, sharp looks, a comfortable ride and safety. The engine refinement remains to be the major chink in the armour. Hyundai’s i20 is offering a striking design, premium quality interiors and a wide range of engine-gearbox options. Features continue to be a strong point for the hatchback. Plus, with the update we see the i20 becoming a better family car, with more space and practicality. The new Hyundai i20 doesn’t just offer loads of new tech, it also works better as a family car than before, albiet for a bit of a price increase. You may compare all these cars accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.

- Selecting a car depends on certain factors such as budget, preference of the segment, requirement of features, preference of the brand, usage of the car, preferred fuel type, service network, etc. The Kia Sonet has grabbed everyone’s attention even before it has turned a wheel. A long feature list with yummy segment firsts and the Seltos’ success story fired up the excitement considerably. If you are looking for a feature rich sub-compact SUV, then you may opt for it. Whereas, if you are looking for a no-nonsense, calm driving premium hatch with a refined engine then the Honda Jazz would be a better pick. On the other hand, the Hyundai Elite i20 makes a strong case with its spacious cabin, sheer comfort and upmarket styling and would be a great option if you are looking for an all-rounder with plenty on offer.

- If you are not an experienced driver, go for a compact, comfortable & Dependable car, preferably swift diesel or petrol.If you are inexperienced driver but have the confidence or you are experienced driver go for a compact suv, Brezza, or kia seltos or a Nexon.
- Tiago is the best. As build quality, mileage and also looks.
- Swift or Atios is best
- Both Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Maruti Suzuki Swift are brilliant vehicles and offer a lot, however, they both have different traits and are from different segment. Maruti Baleno is a premium hatch back and would be a good option if you are looking for a car with plenty of features, efficient engine options and more space than a number of more expensive sedans. On the other hand, if you are eyeing for an enthusiasts car without compromising on the practicality and fuel efficiency, then the Swift is the one to go with. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.

- In swift and Baleno I would prefer you to go with baleno as swift is one segment lower than that of Baleno and baleno get most features from its Delta model whereas swift even doesn't get the projectors in second top model, Baleno gets more space as compared to swift
- It is different segment altogether. So if you are looking for more space, more features and a premium feel to the same engine then go for Baleno without any doubts. But swift is a daily commuter for crowded city like Mumbai and is dynamic in performance
- Though value for money is Delta, if you are someone who wants more in your car, you will end up spending more for accessories. Zeta is a better buy as only difference when i got mine was lack of display screen and projector headlamp. Got music system for 22k and prijector headlamp did not matter alot so ended up saving 60k
- Best version is rs , which is the sports version. Otherwise go with the top variant petrol or diesel. It has different head lamps and tail lamps , very stylish .
- Delta o& the Alpha are the best variants. Sigma is without essential features and the Zeta is just below the Alpha, without any noticeable difference with Delta.

Baleno Detailed Review
Maruti Suzuki Baleno is back. And this time the Baleno nametag will be seen on the boot of a new hatchback, unlike the previous model which was a Honda City-rivalling executive sedan. Maruti has been losing potential car buyers who, having no choice from Maruti, upgraded from the Swift to Hyundai's hugely successful Elite i20. Now with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the company has its eyes firmly on the premium hatchback segment. This will be the second product to be sold from the Maruti's exclusive Nexa Experience showrooms which currently sell the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross.
Lighting up the midnight sky with a spectacular display of firecrackers at a grand event in Jaipur, Maruti Suzuki officially opened bookings for the Baleno nationwide, with the official launch slated for October 26. Since the Baleno will be made in India, the new Maruti hatchback will first be sold in the Indian market, and would be later exported to over 100 international markets. So, we’re here in the Pink City driving the new car, much before international media gets their hands on it. A good feeling, this.
In terms of design, the Maruti Baleno doesn’t really stand out from its peers, and seems like an evolution of the Swift. Maruti Suzuki has been rather conservative on the styling front, with soft lines and smooth corners everywhere - nothing too futuristic or any outrageous attempts to be drastically different from what’s available in the market with this car. Design being a personal thing, Maruti’s new Liquid Flow might appeal to several of the existing Swift buyers, and am sure many would be tempted to trade up to the larger Baleno.
The top variant we drove came with stylish projector headlights, with LED day time running lights and a smart silver strip which merges with a chrome strip on the grille. The design of the headlights, however, are reminiscence of the Swift. As expected, in profile, there are no sharp lines or shoulder jutting out, but the larger proportions of the Baleno make it more impactful than its smaller sibling overall. Unfortunately, just the top spec models get fancier 16 inch alloys wheels, while the rest make do with basic 15-inch steel wheels. Maruti has tried to make the rear of the car more interesting by placing a solid chrome strip on the boot, and higher variants also get a sporty roof spoiler. In all there are seven colours to choose from including a trendy Autumn Orange, Ray Blue, Pearl Arctic White, Granite Gray, Fire Red, Premium Urban Blue and Metallic Premium Silver.
Honestly, I wasn’t very impressed with the interior when I first saw it at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month. And Maruti executives confirmed that the cars given to us in India are closer to production, which explains why it seems a lot more likeable now. The smart all-black cabin looks upmarket and sporty, but there are plenty of parts carried forward from other Maruti Suzuki models, which steals some of the freshness away. We expected the premium-positioned Baleno to use some soft plastic parts on the dashboard and maybe leather upholstery options, which could have made the cabin even better. Apart from this there’s not much to complain about, as the fit and finish is pretty decent for the segment.
The front seats are large, comfortable and well bolstered. Thankfully, the driver’s seat is height-adjustable, which helps get a good driving position. In fact, the tilt and reach adjustable steering further helps this cause. The icing on the cake is the positioning of the switches and buttons, all of which are well within reach, making the cabin ergonomically sound.
As desired in this segment, the cabin is spacious and there’s plenty of space at the back too. What’s most impressive is the excellent knee room for the rear seat passengers - something Maruti car buyers were always left desiring more for until now. India being a predominantly chauffeur-driven country, this will not go unnoticed. There’s a spacious boot too, with a very useable 339 litres of storage space.
One of the keys to succeed in this segment is to offer plenty of features and driver aids, and Maruti has ensured that the Baleno doesn't skimp on this front by loading it with some of the latest gadgets you can think of. So higher models gets climate control, colour TFT information screen, a 4.2-inch touch screen with a rear parking camera and satellite navigation system, and segment-first Apple CarPlay which, by the way, is a really cool feature. Apart from this, there are also steering-mounted controls, keyless entry, push button start, USB and AUX ports, and special coating on the glass which prevents UV rays from entering the cabin. Also commendable are the safety features such as ABS, EBD and dual airbags which are offered as standard on all variants.
Despite the premium position, the Baleno has to be priced competitively in India for it to make any kind of dent in the market. So, it won't come as a surprise that the Baleno borrows the Maruti Suzuki Swift's engine to keep costs down. Not that we're complaining about it, though. The petrol engine in the Baleno is a very refined 1.2-litre VVT motor producing 85PS and 115Nm, offered with a 5-speed manual. It is also the first hatchback by Maruti Suzuki in India which comes with a CVT option.
Surprisingly, the Baleno petrol CVT is only offered in the second rung Delta trim. This means it loses out on features like DRLs, chrome handles, alloys wheels, touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, TFT cluster among others. So, expect a top-spec Maruti Baleno CVT Alpha variant in the near future. The automatic or Baleno CVT is impressively quick off the line and cut out for city use, but runs out of steam on open roads. The other issue with the automatic Baleno is that, while overtaking, the engine is continuously close to the redline and the ensuing strain can be heard even inside the car.
The diesel continues to be the tried and tested 1.3-litre DDiS 190 motor, good for 75PS and 190Nm. Yes, we were all expecting a 90PS oil-burner, but maybe Maruti is keeping that for a sportier variant of the Baleno which might be launched later on. For now there’s no automatic gearbox option in diesel either. The 75PS becomes just another number, as one starts to drive the Baleno diesel. The benefits of power to weight ratio and healthy torque of 190Nm come to the rescue. It effortlessly touches the 150kmph mark and makes for a comfortable tourer. This one is more fun to drive and absolutely loves the highway.
Ride & Handling:
The Baleno is an international model for Suzuki and is based on an all-new platform, which will underpin future Maruti models including the next generation Swift. In spite of being larger than the current Swift, the Baleno is 100kg lighter and said to be 10 per cent stronger. This not just helps it meet the stringent European safety norms, but also offers excellent power to weight ratio.
The ride quality of the new Baleno is far superior to any of the recent models launched by Maruti Suzuki in India. In fact, we could go so far as to say that it is probably the best. It rides with a certain poise and confidence, and seemed extremely surefooted on the Jaipur highway. The steering is light and reasonably communicative, more in tune for city use. It’s a large car, but there’s hardly any bodyroll or wallowing. Brakes, too, are good for their job, with ABS and EBD ensuring it stops quickly and safely.
Price & Mileage:
The Maruti Suzuki Baleno is one of the most efficient in the segment, with petrol claiming a mileage of 21.4kmpl and the diesel boasting of being the best in the segment with a claimed 27.39kmpl. Coming to price, Maruti says that the Baleno already has over 98 per cent localisation. This would translate into pretty competitive pricing. My gut feeling says that Maruti will be looking at undercutting the price of the segment leader Hyundai Elite i20 which is priced from Rs 5.34 lakh for the base petrol to Rs 8.28 lakh for the top of the line diesel variant. And if the new Maruti Suzuki Baleno manages to do that, then the segment could get a new leader.

This is a wonderful vehicle at the budget, Especially the mileage.19-23 kmpl.Simply amazing.
Overall not bad...sitting comfort..wide space..simplicity in handling...Battery issues are main dis advantages
Its look good.. ....................comfortable ride and has a great speed....It is a best car............
Baleno is a decent car from maruti, With good mileage & low maintenance cost.Where as build quality can be improved.
This is my first ever Car. I've been driving Delta variant and the experience is amazing. The only obstacle was running over potholes that could be easily felt. The car is light weighted within this range as compared to I-20 which is why it shakes a little when it's running over 80 or 100kpmh. Overall experience is smooth. Features and other alerts are good. Handling is pretty easy, speakers are normal. Dent is really common with maruti cars because of its average built quality though it doesn't give you that feel at all. Baleno gives you equal comfort and styling inside out. Dashboard looks cool and adjustable stearing is an add on. Spacious leg room. The design is apt at this price. I myself have opted for Baleno over swift and I20. Price is the major factor that beats I20 the difference is over 1lac with similar offerings.
I bought a ZETA petrol 2019 APRIL, it's been 20 months now still unable to login Suzuki connect, somehow data entry guy's made some mistakes so still I couldn't access full potential of my vehicles ease of convenience which I bought but couldn't use it, it's waste of money, after sales Service was a joke on this issue, rest is ok, can be go on easy, you paid for it but you couldn't use it that's annoying yaar, made so many calls & service's still my issue isn't resolved😡, I won't recommend, look for similar other options available not in Suzuki ofcourse.. stay safe drive safe.
Love the car as it is, awesome performance, comfortable enough, mileage wise also good. Entertainment system is also good. Sitting capacity is also enough, leg space is also gives you a fantastic feeling, only issue is in the suspension is quite stiff you will feel it while you are on a rough road. Car is very steady even you are on 120 speed. Breaking system could have improved a bit. More over style wise means overall look wise you won't feel out dated, it always looks freash..to summarise it, the car is value for your money , you won't get disappointed if you are planning to buy it.
My sister recently bought the maruti baleno delta 'base' variant in august.The car looks very premium inside out, And despite being a base model we have dual airbags, Seat belt reminder, Speed reminder etc.We also get a 12 v charging socket, Leather upholstery, An aftermarket pioneer touchscreen infotainment system, Etc too.There are ample amount of bottle holding spaces in every door, Decent amount of boot space and nice space at the rear seat.What not really good in this car is it's safety, Which remains standing at 2 stars.
It's a beautiful car and stands to the classification of being a premium hatch back.. True ambient feel inside the cabin.. Best for a family of upto 5 as all 5 can fit without any space shortage.. Love every bit of my car.. Service delivery team is supportive and manage the customer relations well (showroom from where I bought my car, so this is personal comment). Words won't be enough so let me wrap up saying the best premium hatch back I have driven so far..
