    Following are space and performance explained: -Space 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.Performance: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.Please take a test drive of the vehicle on confirming more on performance.
