मारूति Baleno: My Story

Maruti Baleno: My Story

This review covers the driveability, passenger comfort, and the most important additional features that make Baleno worth having in your list of options. Quick glance. Positives: No engine noise, firm steering, electronic rear view dimming mirror, extraordinary backseat comfort. Negatives: Stiff suspensions, acceleration lag, built of thin metal. My Baleno is a petrol engine, Zeta variant. It has a CVT transmission. In addition to the package, I got black leather seats, a rearview camera, and exterior tweaks fit on the car. This together cost me around  9. 2Lakhs to 9.4Lakhs. I bought the Baleno in January 2018, which is exactly a week after I sold my i20 Elite. Almost every car has a very competitive looks nowadays. So I'll just talk about how the Baleno feels while driving and being driven at the backseat, and about the practicality it offers. In driving, a very good thing is how steady/firm the steering wheel is. Among the Dzire, Ertiga, i20, and Baleno, this one is the most confident i have felt about when driving at speeds above 100km/h. Seat height adjustment and the digital rear view dimming mirror are very helpful in driving comfortably. There is rear and front windshield defogger which helps in keeping the vision clear from the fog that forms on the same, especially during monsoons. The petrol engine is very silent when driving the car normally. However, it's very audible when the accelerator is pressed hard. There is also a noticeable lag during acceleration. The backseat of Baleno is one of the most comfortable among other cars in hatchbacks. The 2 important reasons are good under-thigh support and a massive leg room. Even after taking the front seat fully behind, i have approx. 1 palm length of the gap. For reference, my height is 5'6". Two major setbacks of the car are the build quality of car and jerks felt on potholes. Unlike a Tata Tiago/Tigor, the metal of Baleno feels thinner and prone to get dents easily. That also justifies the Baleno being so light weighted. And you can evidently feel the thuds/jerks when you drive the car about a bump. If the Dzire's handling over potholes is rated 7/10, one would rate the Baleno's 4.5 or 5 out of 10. But additional features like big boot space, small turning radius, informative display (MID) behind the steering wheel, and of course, the affordable after sales service make the list of pros dominant over the cons. The boot is big enough to carry 4 suitcases with ease. When driving in traffic, taking u-turns in narrow lanes, the small turning radius helps a lot in avoiding multiple reverse, and forward rounds. The MID provides information likes real-time average, range, torque/power output which helps to keep the fuel consumption in check. Before I made my purchase i had three other cars in consideration too. The i20 elite feels better in driving, but the uncomfortable seats, lesser legroom and higher price make it less preferable. The Tigor falls in the same range as the Baleno and while it outperforms latter in suspensions, and better build quality, the IRVM, legroom, comfortable seats, better infotainment system make Baleno a better buy. Baleno is also better than the Dzire in almost every regard except for the suspension. That being said, the Baleno truly stands apart in its completion because of the package it offers.
