Is the Suzuki’s Baleno Australia’s best value small car?
It's hard to go anywhere in Sydney without seeing at least one Suzuki Swift. The ubiquitous small cars have been hugely popular with Australians thanks to their unbeatable value, high tech features and zippy performance.
However, they may soon be eclipsed by the Japanese marque's newest offering – the Suzuki Baleno. This little pocket rocket bests its smaller sibling on value and has just as much to offer.
High end features
This surprisingly affordable car is packed with features you'd expect at a far higher price point. Apple Car Play allows you to connect your phone to the car's audio system to take calls, play music and listen to podcasts.
There's also a reverse camera and satellite navigation system that displays information on the car's handy 7-inch touch screen. Keyless entry and start, as well as cruise control, make getting in and out of the car and driving from A to B as easy as possible.
Fuel efficient but fun
In a response to a move towards environmentally friendly motoring, Suzuki's vehicles have started to focus on delivering class-leading fuel efficiency. The Suzuki Baleno is no exception, promising an impressive consumption of just 5.1 litres per 100 km
Despite that low number, this car is no slouch. The RS edition packs a respectable 82 kW, which makes the throttle extremely responsive thanks to the car's lightweight design and small stature.
Beautiful inside and out
The Suzuki Baleno has been designed with efficiency and ease of use in mind but, despite that, it's undeniably attractive. Smooth lines flow down the sides of its body, and its strikingly minimalist cabin is clean and spacious.
There's plenty room for your extended family and all your gear too, thanks to 355 litres of boot space and fully configurable seat positions.
Safe as can be
Your everyday car needs to keep you and your family safe on the roads. Suzuki have taken this to heart with the Baleno and packed it with safety features like:
- Six airbags throughout the cabin.
- An Electronic Stability Program that helps counter under steer when cornering.
- Dusk sensing high intensity LED lights.
- Reversing camera.
