I realise that, by now, this comparison has probably been done a hundred times. Still, here’s my take on the differences between these cars and a few more considerations before you sign on the dotted line.
The Suzuki Baleno has for long been the dark horse of the hatchback segment. There are several reasons as to why this Maruti product is so popular and why other manufacturers are even looking at incorporating this into their own product line. Now, the Japanese manufacturer has once again launched the latest version of the new Baleno.
Be honest now, did you know about Suzuki’s practical Baleno before it spawned a twin?
It had to be done. I’m sure it’s already been done a couple of times but when two near-identical cars pitched up in my driveway, and less than a month apart, I simply had to compose this comparative review.
