Maruti-Suzuki Baleno

It’s the quin­tes­sen­tial city slicker

TTHE C-CLASS HAS GONE and this is what I’m in now. Over the past few weeks I seem to be spend­ing more time in the Baleno on my daily com­mute. It’s just the sheer con­ve­nience of the Suzuki – it’s so easy to drive in the city, easy to park, the petrol en­gine is smooth and re­fined and it has CarPlay which is such a cool fea­ture. It plays your mu­sic, reads out your mes­sages, I’m teach­ing Siri to take notes and the touch­screen works very well. Also the space in­side the car is mas­sive, much more than the big­ger cars I’ve been driv­ing. It also gives great fuel ef­fi­ciency. Down­side? The ride is too stiff and the steer­ing too vague and life­less. Hope the lat­ter gets ad­dressed in the more-pow­er­ful Baleno RS com­ing later this year. ⌧
