Suzuki Baleno 2017
Carsguide Deputy Editor James Cleary had this to say at the time: The Suzuki Baleno GLX Turbo manages to pull several rabbits out of the hat. It's roomier than it should be, delivers excellent economy with more than acceptable performance, and it's comfortable. Ultimately, though, it doesn't conjure up the design sophistication, safety spec, or value equation to seriously challenge equivalent models from the dominant players in the light car segment.You can read the full review here.
This is what James Cleary liked most about this particular version of the Suzuki Baleno: Lots of space, Economy, Comfortable
The 2017 Suzuki Baleno carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1000 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Suzuki Baleno 2017 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.Show more
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.Show more
