The direct competitors of Suzuki Baleno were Toyota Corolla and Honda City. Like always, Suzuki sedans have to compete with the two very popular vehicles. A major reason why Suzuki Sedans cannot perform well in Pakistani auto industry is that they need to compete with the already established Toyota Corolla and Honda City. Honda City is a popular vehicle in Punjab however Toyota Corolla is a popular vehicle in Sindh and Baluchistan. However, both these two cars are present all around Pakistan. A common mindset trails in Pakistan that Suzuki is best for hatchbacks and not for Sedans, also the Sedans they've been offering to customers after Margalla did not impress the customers to purchase one.
Resale value of Suzuki Baleno was not bad, and even now brokers like to deal in Suzuki Baleno as it gives good profit. However, if you compare the resale value of the vehicle couple of years back with the current value, it surely has decreased.
The most popular model of Suzuki Baleno was the 1.3L version in the 2005 model shape. No doubt the vehicle had good design along with good grip and mediocre power making it loved by customers. A major reason why this particular model couldn't grow as it could have been was that of its failure in CNG. The vehicle entered Pakistan when the petrol prices were increasing, and more people were switching to compressed natural gas, the EFI engine of Baleno was not suitable enough to run on CNG, and therefore the demand slowly started to decrease. However, before purchasing a Suzuki Baleno second hand it is necessary to check of the vehicle had been run on petrol throughout or not.
