Baleno - Welcome to the Home of Thorp Suzuki In Cape Town


Elegant and dynamic, the new Baleno combines style with space. The interior is unbelievably roomy and the boot is practically enormous. With a powerfully efficient 1.4 litre engine the Baleno offers you the economy you want and the performance you need. Plus you get all the latest mod-cons and safety features – for a lot less than you would expect.

The Baleno’s next-generation frame has freed up an enormous amount of space in the cabin. With Suzuki’s unparalleled small car know-how, every centimeter has been used to its fullest potential. Sitting inside, the sense of openness and freedom is almost unbelievable – especially when you consider the Baleno’s compact exterior.

Addition of SLDA radio with rear-view camera
The new SLDA (Smartphone Linkage Display Audio) system features a 7-inch touch-screen
display for intuitive operation. Touch sensitive power, volume “home”, voice command
and settings buttons are located around the touchscreen for convenience. Reverse camera
functionality is included as well.
Audio features
– Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink smartphone connectivity
– FM/AM Radio
– USB port, SD card slot (AVI, MPEG4 video compatible)
– Bluetooth (hands-free, music streaming)


The highly-tuned suspension enables you to take corners on the optimal line, and gives you full stability and road-hugging performance on straight roadways. This suspension system gives you a direct response, and phenomenal handling.


The cabin is also protected in the event of a collision by a body structure that efficiently absorbs and disperses shocks from the front, side, and rear. The bonnet panel, cowl top, wipers, and bumpers all contribute to this safety consideration.


The Baleno is available in a 5-speed manual transmission, with a smooth and precise shift feel and optimal gear ratios that benefit fuel-economy. A 4-speed automatic transmission is available for the GLX grade.
