Suzuki Baleno elegant hatch back

The Baleno just launched in South Africa after massive success in India. Here’s our round-up of some recent, local reviews.

They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and with a car it’s certainly in the driving. The Suzuki Baleno launched early November 2016 and has already amassed reviews from some of South Africa’s finest publications. We’ve collected and curated them (those online anyway!) for you to look through.

“Everything about this hatch feels good. The ride is solid, the steering feel is much better than the average in this segment, the cog-swopping process is slick and well attuned to power on demand and the living quarters are really well-insulated. In typical Suzuki fashion it clings to the tar with tenacity with hardly any body lean through the corners. To drive the Baleno is pure pleasure and undoubtedly amongst the best I have piloted in this class and price range.”

“The design of the Baleno is contemporary with modern elements up front such as LED daytime running lights, while the overall silhouette will not look out of place among some leading models in the segment.”

“This compact hatch offers more space than the Swift, with the grown up looks and drive of the Ciaz sedan, all at a price that promises to please.”
