I own a Baleno LXI, 2007 model

By Vishal Sharma on 11 September 2009

I own a Baleno LXI, 2007 model. It is the only car from Maruti pack which is directly imported from Japan hence performance no other Maruti car can beat it. with 1800 CC and 105 BhP it is a super efficient car in its league and even more powerful than most of its contemporaries. The A/C is very powerful and among the best in this segment. There are some drawbacks though, which are very less mileage (10-12 km/L), low ground clearance and rarely non-availibility of it's spare parts. But still most of its parts are readily available. Mileage issue can be addressed by a CNG kit (which I am presently using), lower ground clearance increases the jerk-free ride but makes it prone to collide with some higher speed-breakers. Maintenance cost is very low as in case of all Maruti cars.
