Suzuki Baleno Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior & News in Australia

The Suzuki Baleno succeeded the Suzuki SX4 crossover during 2016, though brand fans will recall a bland, mid-'90s three-door hatch, four-door sedan and five-door wagon wearing the same badge. That wasn't a huge success in Oz.

This time around, Suzuki pitched the Baleno as a near-Corolla-sized five-door hatch but at a cheaper, Yaris price point. Combined with sharp handling and eager powertrains, this Indian-built, spacious and well-equipped runabout has proven to be a reliable, economical and affordable little family car.

On the flipside, AEB Autonomous Emergency Braking isn't available at all, limiting the Baleno's safety standing somewhat. The cheapest grade starts from $18,490, rising to $22,990 for the most expensive version. 

Suzuki Baleno Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Suzuki Baleno here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What is the ANCAP rating for the Suzuki Baleno 2020?

    The 2020 Baleno was not tested as part of the ANCAP program, but without standard autonomous emergency braking (AEB) which some of its competitors now have as standard, it possibly wouldn’t have been a safety front-runner anyway. That’s not to say it’s an unsafe car, simply that AEB is a proven life-saver and it’s a shame the Baleno didn’t have it.

    Meantime, while it wasn’t crash-tested locally, the Baleno was crash tested by Euro NCAP in 2018. A relatively poor result in the pole-crash test saw the Baleno emerge with just three safety stars out of five.

  • What is the ANCAP rating for the 2018 Suzuki Baleno?

    The Baleno sold in Australia was fitted with six air-bags in total. That was made up of two front bags, two front-side bags and two full-length curtain air-bags that protected those in the rear seat as well. But it missed out on other safety tech including autonomous emergency braking and lane-keep assistance.

    The Baleno wasn’t crash-tested locally, but it was tested by Euro NCAP and didn’t perform too well. Combined with that lack of active safety gear was a relatively poor chest-protection rating in the pole-impact test, leaving the Suzuki with a safety score of just three stars.

  • Suzuki Baleno 2019: Any known issues?

    There is nothing to suggest that the 2019 Baleno has anything to be concerned about, but it is very early in its life, so it’s impossible to be certain about what could happen down the track.

  • Suzuki Baleno 2019: Does it have AEB?

    The August update is a minor refresh for the Baleno, it’s mostly cosmetic and there’s no suggestion of autonomous emergency braking.

Suzuki Baleno Interior

The interior of the Suzuki Baleno is a bit like the exterior - pleasant, but not exciting or overly plush. The material and trim used is hardy rather than heart-warming, but you do get a leather steering wheel on all grades. The space is good - check our images - and that's part of its appeal.

Shown above are interior details for the Suzuki Baleno 2020.
