The Suzuki Baleno is a subcompact car produced by the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki since 2015. Prior to this, the "Baleno" nameplate had been applied to the Suzuki Cultus Crescent in numerous export markets.
The car was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015, and was launched in India on October 24, 2015 and in Japan on March 9, 2016. It became available in Europe in April 2016.
It is manufactured exclusively in India, by Maruti Suzuki, as a five-doorhatchback. It is built on a newly-developed platform, that features a powertrain range of three options (for the international model): a new 1.0 l Boosterjet 3-cylinder direct-injection turbo petrol engine, a four-cylinder 1.2 l Dualjet petrol engine with SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) and a normal 1.2 l Dualjet petrol engine. There are two engine options for the Indian model: a 1.2 l four cylinder K-Series petrol engine and a 1.3 l four cylinder DDIS 190 diesel engine. The 1.0 l Boosterjet is yet to arrive in India. It is expected to launch till Diwali in the Baleno RS variant.
It was tested by Euro NCAP in April 2016, receiving a four-star overall safety rating. It offers standard frontal and side head and chest airbags, as well as forward collision warning with auto braking.
