New BALENO – Suzuki’s ideal compact hatchback

The all-new Baleno—which will make its world premiere at the 66th IAA Frankfurt Motor Show —will raise the bar for compact hatchbacks.

Since manufacturing the Suzulight in 1955, Suzuki has produced a variety of compact cars that deliver value much greater than their sizes. Developed using the company’s compact-car expertise, the Baleno has an elegant and powerful design, a spacious cabin and luggage space, and a host of new technologies.


The new technologies include a rigid, lightweight new-generation platform, highly responsive 1.0-litre direct-injection turbo BOOSTERJET engine, and SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) featuring engine assist by an integrated starter generator. All of these contribute to a fun yet efficient driving experience, giving the Baleno much more than just good looks and convenience.


The all-new Baleno will go on sale in Europe next spring.
