Toyota Glanza, the premium hatchback from the automaker, was launched in India in June last year at the price range of Rs 7.22 lakh to Rs 8.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Glanza is the first product of Toyota and Maruti Suzuki’s partnership in India. Despite India’s auto industry facing the worst slowdown, Toyota Kirloskar Motor managed to sell 24,380 units of the premium hatchback since its launch.
Toyota Glanza is being offered in two variants - G and V, in four different iterations depending on the engine and transmission i.e. G MT, V MT, G CVT, and V CVT. The petrol engine on the Toyota Glanza are BS6 compliant, while there are no diesel engine options.
The Glanza looks identical to the Maruti Suzuki Baleno facelift on the outside, however, it has got a new chrome-lined grille. The car even wears the 16-inch same alloy wheels as the Baleno. At the back, the only changes are the addition of the Toyota and Glanza badges and the variant logo.
Also, the interior of the Toyota Glanza is almost exactly the same as that of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno facelift. From the dashboard and steering wheel to 7.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, the Glanza is practically the same as the Baleno. The only difference comes as the Toyota's badges.
On the engineering front, the G trim of Glanza has the 1.2-litre K12N engine with a mild-hybrid motor that churns out 89 bhp and 113 Nm. The Glanza V trim has the regular 1.2-litre K12M engine without the mild-hybrid system. It churns out 82 bhp and 113 Nm. The Toyota Glanza will get a 5-speed manual gearbox as well as the option of a CVT.
The Toyota Glanza mileage is 21.01 kmpl for the V MT trim, 23.87 kmpl for the G MT (Mild-Hybrid) trim and 19.56 kmpl for the CVT, which are the same for the corresponding variants of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
