Suzuki Baleno Teaser 02

The all-new Suzuki Baleno, essentially the production version of the iK-2 Concept unveiled in Geneva earlier this year, is all set and ready for its premiere at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

Not much information has been given except that the B-segment hatchback will be powered by the new 1.0-litre Boosterjet direct injection turbocharged petrol engine that is claimed to “save fuel while delivering driving pleasure.”

No mention on the output either but the downsized turbo engine could be joined by a mild hybrid drivetrain called SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki).

In terms of dimensions, the Baleno shouldn’t be bigger than the iK-2 concept, which measures in at 4,023 mm long, 1,920 mm wide, 1,450 mm tall and a wheelbase of 2,520 mm. Suzuki says lots of effort has been put into the car’s layout in order to meet the rigorous size and weight requirements specific to compact cars.

The all-new Suzuki Baleno will be launched in the UK next summer.
