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. The gearbox has the typical rubber-band effect of most CVT’s when you put your foot down, but then for most of its in town use feels quite adept. 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.
Both cars are really good offerings from brands like Maruti and Toyota. Baleno is a far more spacious car than the Liva, both in the front row as well as the rear. The Baleno also trumps it in terms of a much bigger boot-space. While the Toyota Etios Liva scores high in terms of interior space, affordability and dependability, its built-to-a-cost quality which pleases all.Moreover, the selection of the car completely depends on one's choice and preference. Do take the test drive for both the cars in order to get a clear understanding regarding the ease and comfort offered.
Sorry to inform you that we can not comment on the build quality of Maruti Baleno 2019. Due Baleno hasn't been tested by NCAP till now. But due to its safety features such as Dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Seatbelt with pretensioner and load limiters, ISOFIX child seat anchors, Rear parking sensors, Seatbelt reminder, High-speed warning as std. The quality of the vehicle is good. The euro NCAP rating of the vehicle is 3 stars.
Maruti Suzuki has launched the updated version of the Baleno. While it doesn’t look drastically different compared to the car it replaces, it does get quite a few likeable updates. This includes a wider grille, new 16-inch machine-finished alloy wheels and a brand new front bumper. The headlamps too now feature LEDs instead of Xenon lighting. On the inside, Maruti has given the Baleno a new 7-inch touchscreen. Other changes come in the form of a blue-black interior theme and dark metallic accents on the dashboard. Engine options remain unchanged with the 85PS 1.2-litre petrol and 75PS 1.3-litre diesel doing duty under the hood. In line with the upcoming safety norms, rear parking sensors, speed alert and seatbelt warning are now offered as standard. Maruti Suzuki has also rejigged the feature list in each variant, and the Delta seems more value for money than ever before. The claimed ARAI mileage for the Maruti Baleno petrol is 21kmpl, and for the Maruti Baleno diesel is 27kmpl.

Elite i20 is a good car, very good comfort level, good build quality materials used inside & outside of car but need to compromise with mileage of petrol i20. One thing is sure once you enter inside of car & drive it, you feel premium car like Audi driving experience. Performance wise car takes times to get pick up in 2nd gear, It easily go 60 - 100 km without any extra efforts very smoothly. Need to say if you are looking for premium class with good comfort can go blindly with i20 but mileage wise slightly slow compare to any Maruti vehicles... What else to say further.... As i have Elite i 20 Asta O Petrol 2017 model and driving busy Bangalore city traffic gets around 11 -12 km in city & highway around 16 - 18 km depends on driving pattern. You can easily get around 17 km with smooth driving on highway & 12 km in city with full time Ac. Even i gets same till now. Maintenance come around 5- 7 thousands with service interval 10000 km.Your daily driving of 40 km petrol is best option.

The one that has it all! The Elite i20 brings a sense of class and features to this segment like no other. Premium build, loads of kit on offer, looks that turns heads and space for five. If you want to buy the Baleno because everyone else is, go ahead. It truly is a well-rounded package. We’re glad ABS and dual airbags are standard no matter what variant you choose. We’d recommend the slightly naughty RS variant - because we’re fun that way. Baleno and Elite i20 both the cars are of premium hatchback segment and have good features list. If we talk about power performance Baleno and Elite i20 both have similar power figures in petrol version whereas, i20 has more power than Baleno in diesel version. If we talk about fuel efficiency then, Baleno has a upper hand in both petrol and diesel versions.

Both the cars are of different segment and good enough. The Maruti Dzire sits at the top of the compact sedan segment quite comfortably. The new generation has improved by leaps and bounds, and is among your best bet if you’re looking for a compact sedan. On the other hand, if you want to buy the Baleno because everyone else is, go ahead. It truly is a well-rounded package. We’re glad ABS and dual airbags are standard no matter what variant you choose. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts.

If you want better resale value.Better boot space and automatic in diesal.Go for DZire.If you want hatchback with manual gearbox than Baleno.My advice would be to go for DZire since it's pricing is almost similar and it AMT in diesal.If you peppy car to drive than Baleno with CVT gearbox petrol.Which gives less Torque also less fuel efficiency than diesal.Ho for DZire diesal AMT.
I think it's dzire ... it's more premium ...with better suspension...baleno is a little more value for money with better features even from delta variant which r missing in dzire vxi mid variant equivalent to delta. Baleno is more spacious . But i think dzire will surely give more owner satisfaction . Looks r subjective but to me dzire looks better than Baleno.
If you needed a hatchback with more power and luxury features so you can go for Maruti Suzuki Baleno whereas if you needed a sedan with more mileage and bigger boot space so you can go for Maruti Suzuki Dzire.

Both of there hatchbacks are not natural rivals, since Baleno is the bigger hatchback, prices of some variants of these cars overlap. And so, there is bound to be some confusion when shopping for a premium Maruti hatchback. The personalized Swift LDi delivers more value for someone who can’t spend beyond Rs 8.5 lakh. If you see the incremental cost of the Swift ZDi over the Swift VDi, buying the ZDi makes more sense. But there’s the Baleno Zeta as well that costs around Rs 30,000 more than the Swift ZDi and brings more value to the table with additional features like telescopic steering and auto dimming IRVM. Buyers with a Rs 9 lakh spending capacity should, therefore, go for the Baleno Zeta over Swift ZDi. The Baleno Zeta is approximately Rs 55,000 cheaper than the Swift ZDi+, which gets LED headlamps with DRLs and Smartplay infotainment system with rear parking camera that the Baleno Zeta doesn’t get. There are some features that the Baleno Zeta gets and the Swift ZDi+ doesn’t get, like auto dimming IRVM, telescopic steering, UV-cut glass, front armrest and follow-me-home headlamps. The fact is, most of these features can’t be fitted onto the Swift ZDi+ while you can have the Smartplay infotainment system with a parking camera that the Swift ZDi+ gets fitted in the Baleno Zeta.For more companion Please click the below link Maruti Baleno vs Maruti Swift Comparison: - https://www.zigwheels.com/compare-cars/maruti-suzuki-baleno-vs-maruti-suzuki-swift
Both are from same well known Brand Maruti Suzuki,but baleno is being sold by Maruti's premium section NEXA and swift is being sold by Maruti dealer,baleno is little bit more premium as compare to swift but swift is always have been first choice of youngsters,and still looks more attrative than baleno.both cars have same engine specifications related to power,but in budget its differs alot,baleno is little bit more costly compare to swift.
Baleno be my first choice because it is more spacious than the swift and have relaxing space for my legs. In swift feels like compact space even it's a great car. Other things swift has much smaller boot space as well as the Baleno has a wide boot and ground clearance of the Baleno is more than swift. Mostly other features are same in both and engines are also same. Now you have to choose what you prefer.
I am very comfortable with swift .Maintenance cost is minimum and market I servicing is the best in the country. Anywhere any time in any place in India.Because while buying every car looks good but the main thing need to be considered is maintanence cost including spare parts and facilities available.In both account I will give thupms up to maruti.
The 2018 Honda Amaze, which is priced between Rs 5.86 - 9.16 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi) not only takes on sub-4m sedans and SUVs but also premium hatchbacks such as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. While the Amaze is a sub-4m three-box sedan, the Baleno is a hatchback. However, they have one thing in common - both utilise the sub-4m length to the fullest. Both the cars are powered by a similar capacity petrol engine, but its the Amaze which is more powerful (by 6PS). However, when it comes to torque and claimed fuel economy, the Baleno takes the lead. Talking about transmission, both the cars can be had with a 5-speed MT or a CVT automatic. Unlike their petrol versions, the diesel-powered Amaze dominates the 1.3-litre DDiS-powered Baleno in every parameter. It not only has the bigger engine, but it is more powerful, torquey and frugal, albeit by a very small margin. On the transmission front, the Baleno is offered with a 5-speed MT, while the Amaze can be had either with a 5-speed MT or a CVT automatic.
Amaze petrol, if you are in need of performance and power. Go for Baleno if you need well designed interior and comfort. Added advantage of Amaze is cruise control (High end variant) its very handy when your are on highway for a long drive this gives you effortless driving experience.
Baleno is a hatch back and Built premium and one of the top sellers in india now. You can compare this segment with Honda jazz and Hyundai i20.So the division is clear . The all new amaze is a compact sedan . It is 2nd generation face lift version . It is totally reengineered exterior interior gear box and engine section .It stands out unique on road amongst the segment vehicle in design . Clearly New Amaze is top class and premium built and a perfect family car
The answer is in your expectation Mr.Sajith, are you looking for a sporty looking hatch back with extra coloring it could look like a rally car with alloy wheels and a spoiler. But Amaze is a sedan which gives you a different look, as it is a soft looking car and makes you to be looked at with a different outlook.
Diesel engines are more powerful than petrol engines. Diesel engines have higher torque and they give a smoother drive for long drives. On the other hand, the harshness, noise, and vibrations in diesel driven cars are way higher than that of a petrol-driven car. The maintenance cost of diesel cars is higher than petrol cars.

Baleno petrol will be the best option because the k series petrol engine in baleno is highly refined engine and gives a punchy drive experience. In 2020 MS will discontinue their 1.3 litre diesel engine and introduce new 1.5 litre diesel engine if it is offered in baleno then go for that.

Baleno is the best for adult. Very smoothly drive and normal mileage. Maruti suzuki servicing center for Manipur, Imphal - 795001 is very lazy and dull compare to the other car company servicing center. I hate Manipur,Imphal MARUTI SUZUKI servicing center next time when something happened to my car I will never go to MARUTI SUZUKI servicing center I will go to normal car workshop.
this is my honest review after driving this car regularly for 10 days i am loving it its easy to handle and performance is great and as i have get this car for my family and its really better and it wont catch of on accelaration and thats good for hilly area and a narrow roads on hills as mine one is cvt and engine makes less noise and is quite cabin even while having a heavy storm try it to believe it
This is one of the hatchback which offers you good space inside along with good performance.I have Delta, very well packaged for the amount.One complaint is with boot loading lips thats too high and putting in luggage takes efforts.Rest on safety front good structural strength witnessed. Abs and airbags worked really well.
