Suzuki Baleno in its next generation form will be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) on 15th of September. Suzuki says that this is its "ideal compact hatchback", which has the intention of raising the bar for the other cars in its class.
Three images have been released so far and they are showing what to expect in Frankfurt. First, we see that the new Baleno has an elegant and very powerful design. Although it is a compact hatch, we also wish to see a spacious cabin and enough room for the luggage.
Being a new model, there surely must be new technologies featured. Some of the already announced goodies include a rigid but lightweight new generation platform on which the car is built, new 1.0-litre direct-injection turbo BOOSTERJET engine, and the SHVS that stands for the Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki. The last one features engine assist by an integrated starter generator.
Better fuel efficiency and more in terms of performance is also expected here. Furthermore, various measures have been used to minimize the weight in order to meet the rigorous size and weight requirements.
When is the Market Debut of 2016 Baleno?
We can expect it introduced to the market in Europe as early as next summer. It will probably have a market launch in Japan earlier next year. But if you can't wait seeing it then you will have the opportunity to do that on 15th of September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
