Hatchback buyers looking to stretch their legs and their budgets, can now pop in
to their nearest Suzuki dealership to test drive the refreshed Suzuki Baleno.
The new model is available immediately with a new look, new colours, upgraded
trim and upholstery inside and a high specifications level on both the GL and GLX
In the new model, the signature Liquid Flow line is more accentuated, thanks to a
wide and more three-dimensional chrome strip that frames a new grille and Semblem. The grill itself is more aggressive, and the chrome strip now passes through the front headlights to end at the fender-line.
Rounding off the new look is a deeply sculpted lower bumper with a hexagonal
centre intake. Sharper creases mirror those on the bonnet and add to the more
aggressive profile. The GLX models have integrated fog lamps in this lower section.
The Baleno in GLX specification also adds new polished diamond cut alloy wheels
and chrome door handles, beltline and on the rear tailgate. There is a spoiler on
the rear tailgate and dark privacy glass on the rear doors and tailgate.
Like before, the Baleno is a specification leader in this market segment. The GLmodel, which is only available with a five-speed manual gearbox, has air conditioning, power steering, electric windows front and rear, a radio with Bluetooth, MP3 playback, USB socket and CD player and steering-mounted audio controls.
Added to this, Suzuki also offers remote keyless access, front and rear 12V
accessory sockets, a height-adjustable driver seat and a luggage area light.
Under the bonnet, is Suzuki's highly popular K14B petrol engine. Fitted with a
tumble flow intake manifold, aluminium head and, in this configuration, variable
valve timing, the engine delivers 68 kW at 6 000 rpm and 130 Nm at 4 200 rpm.
Both the GL and GLX models are available with a five-speed manual gearbox - with
stated fuel consumption of 5.1 litres per 100 km in a combined cycle. GLX buyers
can swop the manual for a four-speed automatic gearbox, which is rated to use
5.4 litres per 100 km.
