Baleno is far better than accent..
I have both , thats why I can say that..
Spares are much more costly that its maruti counterparts.
Of Course Less Maintainance.
I always had a very gud experience with maruti products

I had similar choice and i opted for Baleno. The POsitives are:
1. Excellent compatibility with CNG ( u wud not even know if it's running on Patrol or CNG)
2. Exceptional Feul Efficiency
3. Long life of most of the parts

Disadvantages:
1. Extremely high cost of Spares , the work around is to get them from local market ( most of them would be available at 14 cost)

The Baleno, without question is a superior car to the Accent, and is in a different class from every point of view. It is solid, efficient, very comfortable, and robust in performance on the road. I had the pleasure of a 5000 km trip in a Baleno and it scored high on every parameter. The Accent is not a cheap student car in so many countries for nothing.

Going by the above Reports from my friend in auto field,and also the Owners of Baleno, I learnt lot of lesson as I am an Expert in my own era of cars and not the latest ones. Hence I go through all the replies and learn from the present Experts like Shiv,BS Kumar, and others.
I was little taken aback when Shiva informed Accent but after reading others, I think,there may be some points which others may not have experienced. I hope Shiv will answer and put forward his opinions but all said and done, I feel Maruti spares are reasonable and service is okay ,and not as JD Powers gives them the best. I was under the impression that Baleno was a failure and Maruti were giving lot of free items when one buys it but now I have to learn.

Boss, as far as I m concerned, I m very satified with Baleneo. I have this car since last 4yrs i.e a 2005 model and recently after doing 28000kms , I got a CNG kit from Maruti itself. It is doing excellent. With a tank of CNG of 12kg with a tankfull upto max of 8.5kgs, it runs upto 220kms without ac in the city. What else do u want.Also I m surprised how can one get a good car for 2.0lacs.Pl check before u buy.

WITHOUT ANY DOUBT GO FOR BALENO. IT IS MUCH SUPERIOR CAR THEN ACCENT,VERY ROOMY WITH BETTER EQUIPMENT LIST,MUCH BETTER DRIVING EXPERIENCE AND THE BEST THING IS CHEAP SPARES ALONG WITH MARUTI SERVICE NETWORK.I,M SAYING THIS BCOS MY FRIEND HAS ACCENT AND I HAVE DRIVEN BOTH OF THEM.CHECK THE CAR PROPERLY IF IT IS AROUND 60K KM OR MORE.

I suggest Accent because of its style,mileage and good resale value compared to Baleno.Present there is no production for Baleno.

all r suggesting baleno, but i resold baleno and bought an accent, baenos spare parts are very diffcult to get though as tit's components are good u do not need to run to the mechanicn often but acent's components are very gud too and it is also a manitenance free car, though it's spare parts are more expensive but u rarely need them, lookwise and comfort wise it is better too, but avg wise baleno is better, if u use cng again baleno would give ua superb avg but acent too wil give u a maintainable avg, i went for an accent becz of it's looks and comfort.
