Suzuki has released preliminary details and a side profile image of its all-new Baleno five-door compact hatchback.

The production model is a follow-up to the iK-2 concept shown earlier this year in Geneva and obviously it looks less exciting as Suzuki has decided to play it safe and go for a more conservative design which is perhaps more suitable for a budget hatch like the Baleno. 

We don't have details about the car's size, but Suzuki mentions it's a compact model, although from what we can see in the attached image it looks more like a supermini-sized vehicle, especially since the concept was 4023mm long, 1920mm wide, 1450mm tall and with a 2520mm wheelbase.

According to Suzuki, their new model will provide a spacious interior cabin and will implement new technologies, one of which is the 1.0-liter BOOSTERJET direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine. Without going into details, Suzuki says this newly developed unit will offer enough power and great fuel efficiency all wrapped around in a lightweight body which will enable the model to deliver "dynamic performance" levels.

More details will be disclosed on September 15 when the Baleno will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
