Previewed by the Suzuki iK-2 concept from the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the 2016 Suzuki Baleno will be slotted above the Suzuki Swift, and put into a segment that comprises of well-established rivals like the VW Golf, Kia cee’d, Hyundai i30 and Peugeot 308.

It is based on Suzuki’s next-gen platform that has been optimized for fuel efficiency and dynamic performance. Under the hood, it is confirmed to pack a 1.0-liter Boosterjet, while a 1.25-liter K-Series petrol and 1.3-liter DDiS diesel unit will also be available, reportedly. The SHVS system, which is featured in the new Maruti Ciaz, will also be offered for better fuel mileage.
