Good solid reliable affordable

Sound functional useful. Not something to get excited about but something that works at the price point. Light weight so fuel efficient but must come at a safety trade off. Ok for a reliable run about. Show details

Sick of Suzuki problems

Car is 3 years old. Done 50k km and clutch is already gone. Brakes lasted longer than clutch. Never getting another Suzuki. Can’t even get it checked under warranty. Never again Show details

Excellent spacious and beautiful Baleno

The Baleno 2022, is beautifully designed car. Spacious for 3 kids in the back. Larger than other cars in its class. 670k per 37 litres fantastic. Good safety such as ABS. Brake Assist, Stability Control and 6 airbags. No AEB unfortunately but not a deal breaker at all. 1.4 engine is great city and on freeway. Transmission pleasant and efficient. Interior design is more classic than flashy but if you need something more contemporary, get a Swift. Averaging 19.4k per litre. Show details

Good car with potential for more improvements

I have a Suzuki Baleno MY 2021 Auto. Overall it's a good car with an average fuel consumption of 17 KM/L. From my point of view, the computer requires better interface with Android-Auto App. Half of the time I have to switch off, wait 1 minute and switch on the car again so my smartphone with synch with the display.
A little bit of more horse-power would be beneficial, especially on steep slopes. The audio systems requires also some improvements (more volume please). It would be great if the glove-box would be bigger.
Besides that, it's a good cheap car to take you from A to B. Show details

2022 is not an upgrade

Had the 2021 model and it was fantastic. Better fuel economy, better infotainment system, GPS and all round a great little car. Upgrade has less fuel economy, no GPS. Disappointing. Show details

Great car except for transmission issue

I really love my 2017 Baleno except for the problems it has recently caused me. A sound was picked up on the test drive after a major service which turned out to be a problem with the transmission. My car was 4 years old but I have only driven 40 000 kms and have it serviced 6 monthly as per warranty requirement. Suzuki replaced the transmission with a new one which was good, but I was without my car for 4 weeks which was very frustrating. Prior to this only a few small issues a new remote as this was faulty and paint bubble which were all fixed. Other than this a fuel efficient car that looks sleek with some alloys. Show details

Simple no fuss motoring

Purchased brand new in Melbourne in Jan 2018 for my wife and immediately driven to our Grafton NSW home in 2 days. It performed perfectly, despite 2 adults, a working kelpie and 85% of the travel luggage (removed from our X-Trail trade-in) on board. The more you drive this car the more you appreciate how "fit for purpose" it realy is (my SUV is a luxury Nissan Murano Ti and the Suzuki still gives me a smile when ever my wife allows me to drive it). Suzuki's are like iPhones, they simply work without the unnessasary crap that comes with android devices. Would I buy another Suzuki? Yep! Show details

Good city car, economical, affordable, reliable... Excellent AC

Good city car, economical, affordable, reliable...
Excellent AC.
Good value for money.

But
Due to reduced insolation it can become a bit noisy (in bad roads) and hot (requiring the use of the AC)
The head rest is too much leaning forward becoming uncomfortable for long drive

The central console work's well but it is not the easiest to use... Requires some getting used to and some patients Show details

Good value zoom car

The paint top coat is easy to chipped off, annoying for a new car.

Overall suit for the purpose, reliable and affordable city commute car. It has large space inside for up to 4 people. If the seat can be flatted down like Jazz, it will be perfect. Show details

Very bad car and special very bad customer service also

Hi Purchased Suzuki Baleno Jan 2020. i am not happy with car the amount i paid. i am thinking if i paid similar amount you with other brand might be i get better quality car and better customer service. within a two months my car key broken and i went to Suzuki service center to fix my car key. According to them they don't cover warranty. Second important thing on car doing to much vibration on highway. Third important things front internal dashboard is very cheap quality you hear all time noise of plastic. Show details

Has anybody else had issues with the clutch on their Baleno car? I had only done 48000 when the original clutch failed. I had bought the car new.

Yes mine went at about the same time. Gear box rod fell apart when they changed it. Was told no clutch and would have to wait weeks. Had to get it fixed privately.
