Yes,finding ideal driving position is not at all difficult.Thanks to height adjustable seat,tilt and telescopic steering wheel.All round visibility is way better than my SX4.Baleno doesn't feel cumbersome to drive in traffic.

2. How is the entry/exit of rear seats ?
3. How are Front Seats ? Are they as good as Swifts ?
4. Do you feel the potholes, bumps filter to the cabin (both in terms of sound/ moment)
5. What is the biggest thing Baleno has impressed you ?
1.Baleno feels more refined than swift petrol.Low end torque is also better,don't know if it's because of 100 kgs lighter or different tuning by suzuki
2.Rear seats are set little low.Elderly might have problem with ingress/egress,definitely can't catch up with my sx4 in this aspect.
3.Front seats are really good.Adequate side bolstering and thigh support
4.Ride quality is superb,only very large potholes unsettles the car.Suspension is softer than my Sx4 and stiffer than my Grand I10
buy.Perfect car with all goodies at that price point.Heart wanted Ford Figo Diesel Titanium( 40 k more than my baleno zeta petrol)

can you explain more about MID modes? I heard there's a torque chart as well.
MID in Zeta and Alpha trims have advanced functions.Average fuel efficiency,Instantaneous fuel efficiency,Average speed,Distance to empty etc.
Also you can change various settings using MID like auto door lock/unlock,follow me lamps,foot well lamps,Anti theft functions etc.
Power/torque chart gets into action only when you pedal the accelerator.I don't think it's reliable.Should look into it properly once.
