Suzuki are well renowned for their quality small cars and SUVs for a very reasonable and affordable price and the latest Baleno range is no different. Starting at only $21,990 for the base GLX manual and $25,990 for the RS auto, as tested. This makes it a very affordable conveyance indeed, especially considering all the standard equipment it comes with. All models come with satellite navigation, handsfree Bluetooth with audio streaming, Apple Carplay/Android Auto, cruise control with speed limiter, reversing camera and a partridge in a pear tree. Well, not that last bit, that would cost extra. The RS adds neat little displays on the instrument panel such as a G-force meter and fuel economy and performance info screens, although not sure how often you would actually use them, might be nice to play with every now and then just for something different to look at. Also added to the RS is four-wheel disc brakes, the two GLX models come with the old-school drums on the rear, LED projector auto levelling headlights, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry with push button start and climate control air conditioning.

Have been wanting to get there every year for a while now, whether or not I had a car to show I just wanted to get along and perv at some nice shiny metal. I’ll admit I’m a Ford guy, always have been always will be, so it is rather odd that it has taken me so long to get along to the Auckland All Ford Day. Something or other has always come up and I could never make it. This year the calendar was circled and I also had my own car to show, yeah it’s not exactly a show car and I was worried it wasn’t good enough to put on show but glad I didn’t let that stop me!
