Just In: Toyota Glanza launched in India

Toyota has launched a new premium hatchback, the Glanza to its India lineup. The car is priced from INR 7.22 lakh to INR 8.90 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). The Glanza is the first outcome of the Suzuki-Toyota collaboration that will see the two carmakers cross-badge more models apart from sharing tech and developing new cars. Check out the features of the car below:

The base variant of the Glanza (G MT Smart Hybrid) undercuts its corresponding Baleno variant by Rs 65,000. All other corresponding variants of the two are priced identically.

While the Glanza is based on the Baleno, the two hatchbacks are pretty similar, Toyota has made a few changes to differentiate the two.

Like, the front grille has been reworked and features more chrome than the one on the Baleno. The only other change on the outside is the different badging. The car has LED projector headlamps with light guides, LED rear combination lamp, 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome grille, body colored ORVMs and door handles, electrically folding ORVM with turn indicators and roof antenna.

 

The Glanza comes with petrol engines that are offered with the Baleno. The base G variant of the Glanza is available with the 1.2-liter petrol engine with the mild-hybrid tech, in its manual avatar. This engine makes 90PS/113Nm and was recently introduced on the Baleno. All other variants of the Glanza are available with the 1.2-liter 83PS/113Nm engine that is also used in multiple Maruti cars. Both the G and V variants of the Glanza can have a CVT gearbox, albeit not with the newer 1.2-liter engine that has the mild-hybrid tech. The Glanza is not available with a diesel engine, unlike the Baleno.

Other features that the car offers include Push button start/stop, electric power steering, tilt and telescopic steering wheels, climate control, co-driver sun visor with vanity mirror, 60:40 rear seat split and remote keyless entry.

On the features front, the Glanza carries like the Baleno (Zeta variant of Baleno for G variant of Glanza and Alpha variant of Baleno for V variant of Glanza). The car has the infotainment system dubbed Smart Playcast but it is the same unit present in the Baleno. Toyota is offering it on all variants of the Glanza. On the safety front, the Glanza will come with dual front airbags and ABS with EBD as standard on all variants.

It is available in five color variants: Insta Blue, Enticing Silver, Sports Red, Café White, and Gaming Grey.

Toyota has improved the warranty package compared to Maruti (2years/40,000km). The Glanza will be offered with a 3 years/1,00,000km warranty from the factory and RSA (roadside assistance) is free for the same period. While the Glanza is manufactured at Maruti’s factory, the service and spares will be taken care of by Toyota.
