Ikon is pretty unrefined in terms of ride or rough rode noise insulation..the handling is really superb...Baleno offers better performance in general and better ride.

Cool Must Have Car

Hey all ,


The Cheetah Mobile is also a black baleno these days (got it modified for the Rally Desert Storm ), and i can say this now , its the best car on indian roads on what price Maruti is selling it these days , I read some where down the thread where Revvmaster was explaning the choice between LXI and VXI , i am totally with him on that one " LXI " all the way .

The stuff what you dont get in the LXI and is there in the VXI , can be put and infact better things can put on the car with the money that you save in the price difference ...

Close your eyes and get the baleno LXI if you are looking for a mid segment car , and slightly off the topic , if you are looking for a diesel car then the Hundai Axcent CRDI is a must , also a good buy ( but then diesel )

so chuck it ,, get the baleno who ever is going to buy one ......


Cheetah Out .....
