From the moment you set eyes on the Baleno, you'll know that everything is different now. A new, refined excitement that grabs your heart and won't let go - a sense of delight that changes your preconception of what a car can be. When you take off in a Baleno, you ride at the vanguard of a thrilling new life.
We wanted to incorporate new design into the style of the vehicle without losing its individuality. The Baleno combines a low and wide form for outstanding stabiligy with a body shaped by dynamically flowing curves. This painstaking attention to design is what grabs the viewer's heart and refuses to let it go.
Our focus on style didn't lead us to neglect the pursuit of spaciousness. The Baleno offers best-in-class cabin space, with plenty of room for adults to ride in comfort while also securing generous storage capacity for luggage. This sense of comfort and opennnes is what makes going out fun.
The Baleno instrument panel follows the low and wide design concept of the exterior, creating an expansive interior space. The innovative design of the instrument panel centre, with easily operated display audio and automatic air conditioning controls accentuates the cockpit.
The Smartphone Linkage Display Audio works with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.
By connecting your compatible iPhone, Apple CarPlay allows you to make calls, access music, send and receive messages, get directions by voice command or a tap on display.
Likewise, MirrorLink lets various apps appear on the vehicle’s display, allowing access to your smartphone’s features.
The Baleno not only offers outstanding performance but also makes driving fun. To achieve such excellent driving performance, the Baleno incorporates a new powertrain and a lighter new-generation platform. This is a car that tempts you to keep driving on and on.
Beneath the flowing lines of the bonnet are two engines designed in the pursuit of maximum energy efficiency. Newly designed with downsizing in mind, the 1.0 BOOSTERJET direct-injection turbo engine reduces engine displacement while achieving higher power output and torque comparable to a larger engine, resulting in improved fuel efficiency and performance. The other is the new 1.2 DUALJET engine, which incorporates a unique dual injection system to improve fuel combustion efficiency and achieve strong running power, even with natural aspiration. Combined with the new SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) mild hybrid system, the DUALJET engine offers greatly improved fuel performance.
In our quest for even greater efuel efficiency, we developed a new mild hybrid system called SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki). The SHVS assists the engine using a light, compact ISG (Integrated Starter Generator) that has an electric motor function and a high-efficiency lithium-ion battery with outstanding charge and power supply performance. This is an optimal hybrid system for compact cars, designed to offer not only fuel efficiency but also space efficiency and overall balance.
The engine is stopped and electrical components are powered by the batteries, saving fuel.
The ISG functions as a starter motor to quietly and smoothly restart the engine.
The ISG assists the engine when starting from a standstill or when accelerating, improving fuel efficiency.
The ISG uses deceleration energy to generate electricity and efficiently charge its batteries.
Developing the Baleno led to huge leaps in the evolution of its platform. The ideal form of a framework with smooth and continuous curves disperses energy and heightens rigidity while also achieving light weight by eliminating the unnecessary. This new-generation platform elevates fundamental automotive functions like cruising, turning, and stopping to the next level.
Knowing you're well protected can make driving more fun and yet many drivers have surely felt a chill when the car in front of them braked suddenly or behaved unexpectedly. In order to ease the burden on such drivers as much as possible, the Baleno is equipped with advanaced preventive safety features such as Radar Brake Support and Adaptive Cruise Control.
When travelling the Baleno uses millimetre wave radar to detect the vehicle in front. Upon detecting a potential collision, the car acts in any of the following four ways depending on the situation.
Alerts the driver with a warning when there is the possibility of a collision.
Alerts the driver by applying a light brake.
Supports the driver’s braking by increasing braking force.
Automatically applies the brake.
Uses radar to measure the distance to a preceding vehicle and automatically accelerates or decelerates to maintain a pre-set following distance.
In the absence of a preceding vehicle travelling at a lower speed, maintains a set speed.
Automatically decelerates and maintains following distance when there is a preceding vehicle travelling at a lower speed.
When a preceding vehicle that was travelling at a speed lower than the set speed is no longer present, automatically accelerates to the set speed and maintains a ﬁxed speed.
