Spec Comparison: Toyota Glanza vs Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Toyota has entered the highly competitive premium hatchback segment with the Glanza. Mostly a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the car is priced between Rs 7.22 lakhs to Rs 8.90 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). Interestingly, the Glanza G MT variant is Rs 65,000 cheaper than the equivalent Zeta variant of the Baleno. Here’s a spec comparison between the Glanza, and the car that it’s based on.

Engine and Transmission

Under the hood, the Toyota Glanza employs two 1.2-litre BS-VI compliant petrol engines. There’s an 83bhp/113Nm K12M motor that is available with either a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Then there’s also the K12N DualJet mild hybrid mill that produces 89bhp and 113Nm. It is available only with a 5-speed manual. The Dualjet motor is only available in a single G MT variant, while the K12M engine is offered in G CVT, V MT and the V CVT trims.

Meanwhile, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, on which the Glanza is based, is also available with the same petrol engines. However, it also gets a 1.3-litre diesel motor that makes 74bhp and 190Nm. Further, there’s also the Baleno RS, which is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor that puts out 100.5bhp and 150Nm. All the powertrains are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, and only the 1.2-litre gets an optional CVT.


Apart from the twin-slat chrome grille and the Toyota logos, the Glanza is identical in design to Maruti Suzuki Baleno. It gets LED projector headlights with DRLs, 16-inch machined alloy wheels and LED combination taillights. The interiors, too, are similar on both the cars, save for the Toyota logo on the steering wheel in the Glanza.


As is the case with design, the features of Toyota Glanza are similar to the Baleno as well. It gets the 7-inch ‘Smart Playcast’ infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Glanza is the first car from Toyota to get these connectivity features. The same unit is called SmartPlay Studio in the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. The Glanza gets the Toyota Connect app, which offers navigation, location-based roadside assistance and services like dealer locator and a 24x7 concierge service. The Toyota Connect app services are free for the first 12 months.

In comparison, the Baleno comes with the Suzuki Connect app, which offers services like vehicle telematics, geo-fencing, vehicle tracking, driver behaviour analysis, trip details, fuel efficiency report, and real-time vehicle alerts among others. That said, the Suzuki Connect services are chargeable at Rs 10,000 for a three-year subscription.
