Suzuki Baleno Reviews
Total Aggregate Score
7 / 10
The Suzuki Baleno is a cheap family runabout that excels where it matters. It's very easy to drive, the boot is the largest in its category and the interior will stand all the tests of family life.
4 / 5
While the handling feels set up more for comfort than fun – the latter taken care of by the Swift instead – another highlight is the interior space on offer. Four adults will easily fit, and the 355-litre boot is one of the biggest on offer for this type of car.
4 / 5
If you can see beyond its rather dull styling inside and out, the Suzuki could be a great choice and capable of fulfilling all of your needs. It’s fun to drive, practical, comfortable and reasonably cheap to run.
3.8 / 5
The Suzuki Baleno is a practical supermini thanks to its roomy interior. In fact, it gets a lot right, but can’t match all its rivals for material quality.
3.5 / 5
It’s not without its caveats, but thanks to plenty of space, an impressive kit list and that energetic little Boosterjet engine, the Suzuki Baleno does the sensible supermini better than most, and for less money.
3 / 5
Spacious, nippy and well-priced Suzuki lacks usual dynamic flair.
3 / 5
The Suzuki Baleno is not the cheapest or most premium feeling supermini, but it is frugal, well equipped and very spacious.
