Home » News » Suzuki » 2016 Suzuki Baleno UK pricing announced
Suzuki will add a new member to its range of small models with the inroduction of the Baleno, amodel that is a little bit bigger than the Swift and it is built in India. The new Baleno has 3.99 meters long and is the most aerodynamically efficient Suzuki to date with a Cd figure of just 0.299.

The Baleno’s active safety equipment includes a Radar Brake Support (RBS) system on SZ5 models.  When travelling above approximately 3mph and the system detects a risk of collision with the vehicle in front, it warns the driver to apply the brakes. At higher speeds and if it senses the possibility of a collision, it warns the driver with a buzzer and also via a notification on the multi information display.

The RBS system fitted as standard on the SZ5 model monitors the road ahead by means of milliwave radar. The radar technology enables it to work even at high speeds, in darkness, and in rain or other bad weather. The system prevents or mitigates a collision by means of three functions which are Warning, Brake Asssist and Automatic Braking.

Standard equipment for all Baleno models in the range is comprehensive and the SZ-T model (Available with 1.0-litre Boosterjet) includes six airbags, 16-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, air conditioning, satellite navigation, DAB Radio with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, rear privacy glass, cruise control with speed limiter and front electric windows. The prices start at 12.99 GBP.

SZ5 (Boosterjet and SHVS model) adds automatic climate control, rear electric windows, 4.2 inch central colour trip display, LED rear lights, Adaptive Cruise Control and Radar Brake Support. These features come at 13.999 GBP.

The engine range include an all new 1.0-litre three cylinder version and has an output of 111 hp and is also Direct Injection turbocharged (DITC). The new engine has very compact dimensions and offers 170 Nm of torque available from 2,000 rpm through to 3,5000 rpm. The optional six speed automatic transmission equipped model offers 160 Nm of torque and is available between 1,500 rpm and 4,000 rpm.
