I am not a fan of the start/stop button - I really like to crank the car. So, I am thinking of the Delta. But, would like to add the following:
  • Chrome at rear and window beading
  • Boot and glove-box illumination
  • Height adjustable driver's seat
  • Driver armrest

Also, I disliked the alloys from Maruti so will think of an aftermarket option.

I did not see any difference in the tint shade of the glass on Delta/Zeta/Alpha. Can anyone tell if there is any visible difference in a "UV-cut glass" as the brochure says.

Agreed. Driver armrest is close to useless. You can max use it as a storage compartment.
Alloys look like wheelcaps when you see them for the first time.
I don't think there is any visible difference on the "UV cut glass" and the normal ones.

I initially thought about Delta, but then chose Zeta for the following reasons:

1. Bigger tyres compared to Delta.
2. Comes with the TFT screen in the speedo console which even shows the parking sensor.
3. Auto dimming IVRM
4. Height adjustable driver seat and telescopic steering (I'm 5'4" so, I prefer this).... and the other features are good to have.

After 4 days of reading this thread ,2 consecutive visits to showrooms and multiple test drives (alone and with family), finally booked Granite Grey Petrol Zeta today

As per them, Red, White and Ray Blue has the maximum wait period with Ray Blue estimated around 3 months. He has told me a wait period of 45-60 days.
Orange and Urban blue seems to be the ones lesser in demand

First time I visited, I really liked Ray Blue and was determined to book it. But today when I visited, Grey appealed more to me. All in family liked both Grey and Ray Blue and I went with Grey

Personally felt that Red did not have the metallic luster when compared to some other colors in offer. Could not see an Orange version, but from a photo posted on this thread, I assume that too lacks a metallic finish. Just my observation

Only concern during the TD was the placing of the horn. Found bit difficult to engage them freely as in my 2007 WagonR

I visited Kalyani JP Nagar. Can someone please confirm a display availability of Silver and Orange in any showrooms in Bangalore?

Agree with you on this. After a week of driving the Baleno I feel the horn is a little too hard and not conveniently placed. Need to stretch the fingers and also press hard.

This Monday I saw an Orange Baleno on display in Bimal Nexa ORR.

The 15 inch alloys cost Rs. 5,490 per piece whereas the 16 inch ones cost Rs. 5,890 per piece. Both ones are MGA for Ciaz, and should fit Baleno too.

Go to Pratham Nexa on St. Marks road. They have all colors except orange. Kalyani Nexa in JP Nagar is very crowded at all times. We came back from there after waiting for an hour for a TD.

Thank you. Just checked the 15 inch 5-triple spoke ones are 4990 per wheel. Got it checked in two cities through dealer portal directly. The 16 inchers from Ciaz ZXI+ are correct @ 5890 per wheel.

IMO both these are much better than the Baleno OEM ones.

My experience at Kalyani wasnt that bad regarding TD. Did 2 TD one on Friday and the other today. Did not have to wait more than 15 minutes for both. But both days I was totally unattended due to the crowd till I said I am booking.

Is there parking available around Pratham Nexa?

My bad- should have clarified. In 15 inches, they have two models for Ciaz-
1. Which comes as OEM in ZXi/ZDi-Rs.5,490
2. Those 5-triple spoke ones which comes as MGA-Rs. 4,990.

Hope this helps prospective Baleno owners.

Shashi

There is 2 wheeler parking at Pratham. 4 wheeler isn't available.

Regarding the start stop button feature.

What happens if someone breaks your car window? Can they drive away without the key?

+1 on the horn placement issue. The horn is not accessible by thumb is you hold the steering at the corner spokes. You have to loft the hand to honk or hold the steering at the middle spoke.

One more thing which is a bit inconvenient is the placement of the ivrm and the angle of the front glass. This tends to create a blind spot when you turn left and I have to lower my head to get a clearer view when I have to turn left.

Isn't this Baleno a trifle under-powered?
Any comments?

I haven't yet driven it but would love to hear from others on TBHP!

From part sharing across models, seems Ciaz, Swift twins and Baleno used the same power window switches.

It also seems, the fog lights are also same on all Ciaz, Swift and Baleno. Would anyone know.

Why did MSIL miss the engine cover? Doesn't look good. I guess noise insulation would be better with a cover. Any after market options?
