Suzuki at 2016 Geneva International Motor Show: European Market Launch of New Hatchback BALENO

After celebrating its world premiere at the last Frankfurt Motor Show, Suzuki is pleased to announce the market launch of the New Baleno in Europe. The Baleno features a harmonious combination of style, packaging, performance and fuel efficiency.


Under the mid-term management plan “SUZUKI NEXT 100” Suzuki emphasises strengthening of sophisticated and dedicated manufacturing, which includes a new platform strategy. The new generation platform with increased rigidity and reduced weight is used in the new Baleno, and it contributes to fuel efficiency, collision safety, space utility, and fundamental vehicle performance like cruising, turning and stopping.

The lightweight-hatchback is powered by the highly responsive BOOSTERJET direct-injection turbo engine, or the DUALJET naturally aspirated engine which is available with the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) featuring engine assist by an integrated starter generator.

All new Baleno was already launched in India last October and has been selling well. It will go on sale in Europe in this spring.

Suzuki invites all journalists to visit the Suzuki booth in Hall 4 (stand 4251) where further highlights are on exhibition.

*The 86th Geneva International Motor Show will be open to the press on 1st and 2nd March and then to the general public from 3rd to 13th March.
