Islington Motor Group is pleased to offer the new Suzuki Baleno, a spacious and practical five-door hatchback that’s perfect for a growing family. It’s also a pleasure to drive thanks to its turbocharged engine and long list of handy features, including satellite navigation and air conditioning which comes as standard.
From the outside, you’ll immediately notice the Baleno’s striking front and rear grilles featuring a chrome accent which really makes it stand out on the road. High-intensity discharge headlamps and 16-inch alloy wheels add to the car’s appeal.
Step inside the cabin and you’ll be delighted by the spacious feel, with ample head and legroom in both the front and back row. The boot is more than capable of carrying shopping, a pushchair or even luggage thanks to its generous 320-litre capacity – this can also be easily expanded to 1,085 litres by simply folding the rear seats.
When it comes to infotainment, the driver enjoys an easy-to-use touchscreen system, satellite navigation, air conditioning and auto lights. Thanks to Bluetooth and USB connectivity, you can make or receive calls and even take your music with you by playing it through the car’s stereo.
Under the bonnet, you have the choice of two different petrol engines, the standard option is a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder that’s capable of producing 109bhp while returning an official economy of 62.7mpg and emissions as low as 105g/km – maximum performance whilst delivering great efficiency. You can also select this engine with an impressive automatic transmission. Alternatively, select the 1.2-litre and thanks to its’s low emissions of just 94g/km it qualifies for free annual VED and you can expect up to 70mpg.
The Baleno also takes the safety of you and your passengers very seriously, thanks to its suite of airbags including front, side and curtain, seatbelt reminder and ISOFIX anchor points in the rear seats for ultimate peace of mind when it comes to little passengers. There’s also ESP (electronic stability programme), brake assist function and a reversing camera. Additionally, if you select the optional safety pack called Radar Brake Support you will benefit from four additional safety functions; alert, automatic light brakes, brake assist and automatic brakes. This safety system continually monitors the road ahead and automatically brakes the car if the driver fails to do so.
