Dear Rajat ji,

Greetings !!
Pls find below our initial observations basis experience of Swift 2024 and in comparison to Baleno

Engine: Although its a 3 cylinder Z Series engine in Swift - but the sheer level of refinement which Maruti did to this 3 cylinder unit is commendable in terms of benchmark in engine noise, vibration. Noise is almost non-existent in idling, however minor idling vibrations can be felt in Swift.
But yes once you go pass to speed of 100 Kmph can hear and understand that its a 3 cylinder unit

On other hand Baleno engine noise, vibrations are minimalistic in 4 cylinder and feels super refined both at idling and even at speed of 90 to 100.

So although Swift Z Series Engine is benchmark among 3 cylinder one - but once you compare in to Baleno with 4 cylinder one - Baleno wins marginally in overall Noise, Vibration levels
But - coming to fuel efficiency - can confirm you that Swift will end up to be near 10% more fuel efficient in day to day usage.

From pickup factor - Swift is light weight, and way Maruti tuned up performance at low end - you will not find Swift underperformer at 82 PS as against 90 PS in Baleno for day to day city use. But again at higher speed at 80+ marginal lag felt in Swift over Baleno

So - if you compare ENgine noise, vibrations, pickup response - Baleno has marginal edge
While on Fuel Efficiency per se - Swift has near 10% better mileage

Safety- Although Baleno carries higher kerb weight - but both cars are based on hearect platform of Maruti Suzuki.
Swift however comes with advanced safety of 6 Airbags, ESP, Hill Hold Assist as been scoring higher in safety element of car
But for high speed - Baleno offer from R15 185/65 tyre as against Swift with 14 Inch Wheel with R14 165/70 tyre

Interiors -
a. Baleno has better cabin space, longer wheelbase, superior legroom and even bigger boot space
b. Both cars are offered in dark interiors but Baleno again looks having marginal edge in overall interior styling
c. Baleno feels longer and has slight better design layout to Swift - but again subjective

Features - Almost similar equipped in lifestyle, convenience, infotainment feature except
> Swift offers more safety with 6 Airbags,ESP, Hill Assist
> Baleno offers in Auto Climate Control, Power Fold ORVM, Bigger 15 Inch Wheels with Wider Tyres and top of it discounts too on car

Overall- To View Baleno looks more impressive with
> Superior Engine NVH
> Better Performance at higher speed
> More Stable ride at higher speed due to wider tyres
> Better Lifestyle Features
> Relatively more spacious

While Swift has primary edge in Advanced Safety Features, Mileage

So have preference on what you seek - if advanced safety features coming in way - may even consider in Baleno Zeta offered with 6 Airbags - but as product - price package - Baleno definite has advantage over Swift

Should help !!
