Cars Q&A

I am thinking of buying a 2nd hand car 2005 model, either Maruti Baleno or a Hyundai Accent GLE. Could you guide me as to which is better based on the parameters of enginepower wise, maintenance wise, exterior looks wise, interior wise, curb height clearance wise, smoother feel while driving, interior space wise, dikki/boot space wise.

  • Hi Hemant-as a second hand option, maruti baleno's tend to be a better bet in the used car market. Although you need to always check the vehicle history and physical condition before opting for any of them.

  • I have been using a Baleno for the last 3 years. It gives 12kpl for city use. The ride is excellent and the pasenger comfort is any day better. The boot is bigger than that of Accent.I have never been to a garage except for regular manitenace job.The only issue is that the suspension being very soft the bottom rubs while negotiating speed-brakers. The quality of components used in Baleno is superb. They are found to be having long life.

  • Expert Hi,
    Among the two Accent will be a better selection on account of overll performance and parameters.Though boot space and ground clearence of Baleno is better, the Accent has better performance and resale value.
