The Baleno is a cool and sophisticated hatchback with the space and smart features to make your daily drive an exceptional experience. More spacious inside than Swift, the Baleno has a considerably larger luggage area, meaning more space for you and your things.

For long trips there's cruise control and a speed limiter while Bluetooth and USB let you connect your smartphone. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to access entertainment, apps and answer calls hands-free.
