Get attracted by the next generation compact car that unites opposites. The all new Baleno is surprisingly spacious. Baleno calls for attention with expressive styling, eco efficiency, yet delivering driving performance.
Awarded '2016 Australia's Best Cars Award: Light Category', judged for value, design, function and drive by Australia's leading motoring experts.
Experience the perfect combination of surprising space and attractive design, eco efficiency and driving performance. The decision between reason and emotion has never been easier: choose both at the same time.
Building on Suzuki's extensive small car know-how, the stylish new Baleno wraps a compact, aerodynamic body in elegant, sporty lines.
The Baleno instrument panel follows the low and wide design concept of the exterior, creating an expansive interior space. The innovative design of the instrument panel centre, with easily operated audio and automatic air conditioning controls, accentuates the cabin.
Knowing you're well protected can make driving more fun. For greater peace of mind, the Baleno is equipped with preventive and collision safety features designed to mitigate injury in the unlikely event of an accident.
Baleno has a dynamic safety system which includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist System (BAS).
To mitigate the extent of injuries in the event that the car comes into contact with a pedestrian, the bonnet, cowl top, wipers and bumpers are built to absorb impact.
The cabin is protected in the event of a collision by a body structure that efficiently absorbs and disperses energies from the front, side, and rear. Another layer of protection is provided by SRS airbags for the driver and front passenger. Safety is further enhanced by SRS side airbags and SRS curtain airbags on the GLX badge.
The Baleno not only offers outstanding performance but also makes driving fun. To achieve such excellent driving performance, the Baleno incorporates a new powertrain and a lighter new-generation platform. This is a car that tempts you to keep driving on and on.
The 1.4-litre engine delivers excellent driving performance for both tremendous power and fuel efficiency. The intake VVT, cylinder head and piston crowns are designed to boost fuel economy (5.1L/100km fuel economy manual* / 5.4L/100km fuel economy automatic*), which is enhanced by a great aerodynamic body.
*ADR 81/02 results for manual and auto transmissions. NEDC Fuel Consumption figures may not mimic real-life driving conditions and should be considered for comparison against other vehicles only.
The new Baleno's design is both aesthetically pleasing and structurally advanced: it's light, agile, dynamic and streamlined. Curved lines and flowing aerodynamics make its low, wide silhouette a bold, compelling visual statement. A new-generation platform - and all its parts - has been specially designed to optimise its shape, form and performance. By increasing rigidity and minimizing weight, the platform enhances fuel economy, safety, handling, and stability. It also helps minimize noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). While a low, wide muscular stance adds extra stability, the MacPherson strut coiled suspension senses your every move, enhancing manoeuvrability, responsiveness and driving enjoyment.
