Suzuki To Bring New 2017 Baleno At Geneva Motor Show

The full production version of the new Suzuki Baleno will be at the Geneva Motor Show.

Suzuki’s new compact model features an elegant design theme called ‘Liquid Flow’, previewed by last year’s iK-2 concept car. It’s based on a new lightweight platform, while power comes from a turbocharged 1.0-litre direct-injected three-pot BoosterJet petrol unit making 110hp and 170Nm (125lb ft) of torque.

Also new is the 1.2-litre SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) engine option which combines a four-cylinder petrol with an integrated starter generator connected to a lithium-ion battery.

Suzuki promises great fuel efficiency combined with an entertaining handling package for the Polo-rivalling Baleno. Sounds and looks very promising indeed.

The new Baleno will be launched across Europe this spring, with UK sales starting in June.
