Suzuki Baleno 1997 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.
