About Suzuki Baleno

The Suzuki Baleno nameplate has been used by the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki to denote several different compact cars since 1995.

  • From 1995 to 2002, the Suzuki Baleno that was sold in Europe and Asia-Pacific was a rebadged Suzuki Cultus Crescent. It was also produced and sold in India as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno until 2007.
  • After the introduction of the Suzuki Aerio in 2001, the Baleno nameplate was discontinued in Europe and Asia Pacific, and remained in use only in Indonesia. This Baleno was a rebadged Suzuki Aerio sedan, marketed as the Suzuki Baleno Next-G, sold from 2003 to 2007.
  • From 2008 to 2010, the Indonesian market received a rebadged Suzuki SX4 sedan, marketed as the Suzuki Neo Baleno and then Suzuki Baleno SX4.

The Suzuki Cultus Crescent (Japanese: スズキ カルタス クレセント, Suzuki Karutasu Kuresento) is a compact car that was produced by Suzuki in Japan between 1995 and 2002, with South Asian production continuing until 2007. The Cultus Crescent was sold as such in Japan until May 1998, when it was renamed Suzuki Cultus due to the sales discontinuation of the previous Cultus in the Japanese market. The Cultus Crescent was also marketed as the Suzuki Esteem in North America, Philippines and Thailand, and as the Suzuki Baleno throughout Asia, Australasia, Europe, and Latin America. In India where it was manufactured by Maruti Suzuki, the Cultus Crescent was sold as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. In the Philippines, the facelift model was marketed as the Chevrolet Cassia.

The Cultus Crescent was introduced in Japan in January 1995 and then to the global market in the first half of 1995. It was Suzuki’s first attempt in the competitive compact segment. As a North American replacement for the Suzuki Cultus (Swift) sedan (the three-door hatchback remained after it was redesigned in 1995), it was built on a slightly stretched Cultus platform for improved cabin room, but otherwise sharing most of internal components with the smaller model—and marketed as a distinct model.

The Cultus Crescent was initially available as a three-door hatchback and four-door sedan, with the SOHC belt driven 16-valve G-family engines, in 1.3- and 1.5-liter form, with power ranging from 85 to 97 PS (84 to 96 hp; 63 to 71 kW). The 1.3-liter was only offered in the hatch while a 1.5-liter was only fitted to the sedan. Eventually, four-wheel drive was offered with the 1.6-liter variant in February 1996,basically the same engine as found in the Suzuki Escudo, with power raised to 115 PS (113 hp; 85 kW). At the same time, 1.8-liter DOHC chain driven 16-valve J18A engine with 135 PS (133 hp; 99 kW) appeared, the lineup was also extended with the wagon body style, called Cultus Crescent Wagon GT. This was Suzuki’s first station wagon (excluding kei cars), also with the same 1.6-liter, which also received the optional four-wheel drive in the wagon. In Europe, the 1.5-liter engine was not available for sale. The 1.8-liter engines was exclusively fitted to GTX sport model and was rated at 121 PS (119 hp; 89 kW) (EEC). A commercial van with higher roof was also available in several European countries. Cultus Crescent also assembled in Colombia at GM Colmotores in 1995, marketed as Chevrolet Esteem and only available as sedan with 1.3-and 1.6-liter engines. Suzuki also produced this car locally in Indonesia in 1996 as replacement of previous Cultus sedan (marketed as Esteem there) and sold as Suzuki Baleno and only available as sedan with 118 PS (116 hp; 87 kW) 1.6-liter engine and 5-speed manual transmission. The Suzuki Esteem was introduced in the Philippines in 1996 and sold until 2000, and was only available as a wagon. Suzuki then dropped the “Esteem” name in favour of Chevrolet, who had just been returning in the Philippine-market to have at least one sedan model to compete with other popular Japanese-made sedans.
