Home / Baleno


Styled for every taste

The Baleno is inspired by the design concept of “Liquid Flow.” Its low and wide stance, along with harmoniously flowing curves on its body give it an elegant yet powerful look. At the same time, the car’s frontal design adds a sporty vibe to it, making its style appealing to all.

Captivating from within

The Baleno is not just about outer beauty. Its elegant and urbane styling extends into the interior of the car. The cabin is lined with high quality silver ornaments, which add a touch of sophistication, leaving you spellbound.

Comfort in every moment

Whether it’s a long drive or a quick spin in the city, the Baleno ensures unmatched comfort. The fine textured fabrics and elaborate patterns used for the seats create a calm and soothing experience in the cabin. The multiple compartments and its 355L luggage space allows ample storage for all of your items.

Powered to make every drive exciting

Every part of the Baleno is equipped to ensure maximum efficiency and comfort. That’s why when you take it for a drive, it’s always an extraordinary experience.

1.4L engine

Designed to deliver maximum energy efficiency, the 1.4L engine delivers strong power, while ensuring fuel efficiency.



The 4-speed automatic transmission delivers powerful acceleration at low speeds and fuel efficiency at high speeds. The 5-speed manual transmission provides smooth and precise shift feel, for a more enjoyable and nimble drive.

Light and rigid “HEARTECT” platform  

The light and highly rigid HEARTECT platform lowers fuel consumption and vastly improves the fundamental vehicle performance in terms of running, turning and stopping. Its frame is characterised by smooth and continuous curves, which efficiently disperses impact energy in case of a collision.

Enhanced Safety for a pleasant drive

Drive from one exciting moment to another, knowing that you are well protected. The Baleno is equipped with advanced safety features such as occupant-protective airbags and anti-lock braking systems to enhance your daily peace-of-mind.


SRS airbags

To protect not only the driver but the front and rear passengers, front, side and curtain airbags are equipped for enhanced safety.

Light, impact-absorbing TECT body

Suzuki’s TECT (Total Effective Control Technology) body helps protect the cabin in the event of a collision by efficiently absorbing and dispersing energy.

Rear parking sensors

Ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper detect obstacles and issue audio-visual warning to the driver.

Pedestrian protection

To mitigate pedestrian injuries in the event of a collision, the Baleno’s bonnet, cowl top, wipers and front bumpers are designed to absorb impacts.

Anti-lock brake system and brake force distribution

In an emergency braking situation, the anti-lock brake system (ABS) keeps tyres from locking. The electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) optimally distributes front and rear braking force to help stably stop the vehicle.
