Question re: Next-gen Suzuki Baleno (YRA) unveiled. EDIT: Now launched at Rs. 4.99 lakhs

One of the articles doing the rounds on the web says that the Baleno will be bestowed with an Adaptive Cruise control. There wasn't any mention of the Indian version in the article though.

Do you think Cruise control will make the cut here?
My takes:
a) It can be there since the NEXA-housed S-Cross has it; the Baleno will sit in NEXAs too
b) It cannot be there since the Baleno is positioned not only just below the S-Cross but also below the Ciaz and the Ciaz isn't blessed with the feature in question (it has been bruited that sometime later the Ciaz too will ensconce itself in NEXAs)

This car resembles a lot with VW Polo, which is a smart looking car for sure. This is just me or other's also think the same? Polo is smart looking car, so nothing wrong in copying that design language I guess. Being bigger car though, Baleno has more space & more presence than Polo has. Maruti just need to price it right, they already have one more seller on their hand.

Cruise control - yes.

Adaptive cruise control- Not possible as far as I know since the frequencies used by such systems are not allowed for civilian use in India.

The Polo look is strikingly similar when viewed from the rear.

It is a matter of time when we can see Adaptive cruise control soon in India and maybe in the Baleno itself though maybe not at launch.

Quote:
Govt de-licenses use of very low frequency bands for automotive industry
Quote:
Car makers can use this frequency through radar-based system and offer advanced driver assistance features like blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.

These features are already available in advanced markets. According to a notification dated September 16, issued by the wireless planning and coordination wing of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, the government has de-licenced use of devices or wireless microphones in the frequency bands of 36-38 MHz, 433-434.79 MHz, 302-351 kHz and 76-77 GHz.
Quote:
Maruti should be the biggest beneficiary as it intends to use the bands for testing and installation of Autonomous Emergency Braking System (AEBS) in its upcoming Baleno, which will be exported to Europe and Japan.

Thanks guys. I was not aware of this new development. It's truly welcome.

Autonomous braking systems are being given prime importance across the western countries. Euro NCAP, for example will cap the ratings at 4 stars for cars without AEB. If Maruti doesn't compromise on the build- Baleno has a shot at 5* ratings compared to 4* rating for the Elite i20.

Adaptive Cruise Control in India will be a pain in the neck for the Indian style of driving. Just Imagine, the car leaves a gap of 4-5 meters when cruising at a speed on 80KmpH and I can imagine an Alto getting into the gap and then the system will get confused and will lead to sudden braking/slowing to maintain the gap and I see another Alto/Auto getting inside

So maybe a cruise control possible, not Adaptive

Nexa outlets gears up for the New Baleno for an end October launch.

Training for the sales personnel is rumored to be in the second week of October.

There are now approximately 40 odd Nexa outlets in operation in the country and very soon that number will climb to 60 and by the end of the year to approximately 100 across the country.

Quote:
With 100 Nexa outlets coming up soon, the company is targeting at selling at least 100 units of the S-Cross and Baleno put together in the coming months at each of these Nexa outlets.

Suzuki's 'New' Baleno being spied in the Swiss Alps on test, along side its newest Mini Crossover iM-4. The 1.0L Boosterjet engine will feature in both.

I have been looking at the Baleno images for quite some time but somehow I find the front design a little weird, probably because of the small grill and large expanse of metal. The rest of the exterior however looks pretty good. Again, the interior dash design, especially the central a/c vents, looks more like a Hyundai than a Maruti. Just my thoughts.

The above video of the test mule clearly shows that the Baleno has great road presence (have taken some screenshots from the video for comparison).

The Indian spec Baleno also seems to be raised and appears a bit tall from what we have been seeing from the Frankfurt Motor Show pics. Hope the wheel well gap isn't too much to spoil the look.

An exciting product from Maruti for sure!

From the above screenshots , the car being a hatch has definitely good road presence and it looks as wide as the Terrano and as tall as the old Desire.
Maruti needs to provide this car in 6-MT in both petrol and diesel as it can be a great highway cruiser.
