Handling and off-road performance

It should be noted right away that although this car has the Cross prefix in its name, it does not correspond to it in terms of cross-country ability.

The model is equipped only with front-wheel drive, and also does not stand out with an impressive ground clearance.

That is why, only the city and the conditions of the track will be the field for the operation of the cross. If you get out on the off-road, then the car will simply draw with the bottom almost everywhere, barely meeting even the smallest obstacle on its way.

Despite the lack of off-road qualities, this urban SUV boasts excellent handling compared to its competitors in this price segment.

The car confidently holds the road, reacts with lightning speed to the steering, and besides, it allows the car enthusiast and passengers to fully enjoy the comfort during the next trip.

The model received a strong and very reliable suspension system with MacPherson struts in the front and a torsion bar on the rear axle.

Dynamic properties and fuel consumption

The Suzuki Baleno cross presented in this review, although equipped with a subcompact power unit, can boast of good dynamics due to its compact size and relatively low weight.

In the version with a manual transmission, the car confidently gains the first 100 km / h in a rather modest 12 seconds.

Also, this car has a considerable ceiling of the maximum speed, which is limited to 170 km / h. Among other things, this vehicle stands out for its economy.

On average, for every 100 km of run, a car in a combined cycle will consume about 5.5 — 6 liters of fuel.

This model uses AI-92 gasoline as the main combustible mixture. The lowest fuel consumption is provided here in variations with an automatic gearbox.


Perhaps one of the strongest aspects of this car can be called the exterior and interior design. The urban compact SUV, although it looks simple, but at the same time, almost all modern car enthusiasts like it.

The manufacturers managed to achieve this due to the significant elaboration of the model. The front of the car looks practical, but at the same time there is an individual style and some mystery here.

The model received a rounded grille, stylish head optics, as well as a powerful air intake on the bumper and deep-set fog lights.

All this makes the car stand out against the background of direct competitors. If we talk about the interior arrangement, then it is done mainly in dark colors.

Here, the main emphasis is also on practicality and accuracy. The model really looks neat, thanks to which it will not bother its direct owner for a long time.


The compact cross Suzuki Baleno quite easily merged into the modern realities of the automotive market, and now the model can be called a serious competitor for such popular SUVs as Renault Kwid, Hyundai I20, Suzuki S-Presso.
