The new Suzuki Baleno showed up at the at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show showing off lots of DNA that it borrowed from the Suzuki IK-2 Concept that debuted at the Geneva Auto Show. Compared to the concept, the new Baleno isn’t far off at all. It isn’t quite as sporty on the exterior as the concept, but it features the same headlights, front grille, side profile, and a toned down rear end. Inside, there are a few subtle hints that point back to the Suzuki Swift, however, the interior is smooth and pleasant. There is a large touch-screen display with Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, a partially digital instrument cluster, simplified center console, and decent fit and finish. Under the hood, the new Baleno features a 109-horsepower, three-cylinder engine or an 80-horsepower, four-cylinder engine.

As a “supermini” or subcompact, the Baleno competes against the likes of the Volkswagen Polo and Ford Fiesta, to name a couple. As such, the Baleno has some big shoes to fill if it’s going to be successful in such a competitive market. It does feature a sporty enough exterior and a nice enough interior to keep up, but that only goes so far, considering most competitors in this market offer up trim levels with significantly more horsepower. Of course, Suzuki hasn’t exactly been known for its performance in four-wheel vehicles, so that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

So, will the new Suzuki Baleno be able to tear off its own chunk of the market? Only time will tell, but for now, you can check out our full review below.
