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.
With a huge cult-following in Southern-Africa, the very capable and nimble Suzuki Jimny just expanded its model line-up with the new GL and Rhino edition variants. This comes as more customers are looking for slightly more added extras than the GA, as well as the automatic gearbox, only found up until recently, in the GLX variant.
In our increasingly complicated and bewildering modern lifestyles, I find more and more favour in simple things. Easy stuff. There’s a wonderful wholesomeness to a device that only does what it’s supposed to, and thank Heavens we still get automobiles of such a type: like this Suzuki Swift.
The new Suzuki Celerio has just been launched and it takes to the Southern-African market with quite an ambitious claim. Should Suzuki’s claimed fuel consumption be correct, the Celerio will be the most fuel-efficient car on the current market.

The world authority in compact cars has just unveiled its new Baleno and confirmed that it will arrive in local showrooms three months from now.
Be honest now, did you know about Suzuki’s practical Baleno before it spawned a twin?
The Suzuki Swift has picked up where the VW Polo and Vivo left off. There, I said it! While Volkswagen and the rest of the car world tear each other to pieces for any morsel of the premium markets, Suzuki is left smiling all the way to the budget bank…
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.
‘n Volmaakte stedelike sluiper
Laat ons eers die grootste vraag uit die weg ruim. Ja, die Toyota Urban Cruiser is in werklikheid dieselfde as ‘n Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Behalwe vir die vloer matte, die voorste roostersamestel, asook die prysreeks (hier wen die Vitara Brezza algeheel), en die waarborg (die Vitara Brezza wen weer met twee jaar). Beide die Urban Cruiser en Vitara Brezza, nes die Suzuki Baleno en Toyota Starlet, is ‘n Maruti produk.
The darkest horse of them all
The Suzuki Baleno was introduced into the Southern-African market in 2016 and while it has not created many waves since, we at NamWheels believe it to be the other way around. Why look away from a car with outstanding fuel consumption, massive amounts of space, a reliable engine, and a B-segment price, even if it challenges the price offering of most C-segment cars?
