-Two variants across five trims and two petrol engine options
-Five-speed manual and CVT
The Toyota Glanza will be launched in India tomorrow. It’s a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and is the first car off the Toyota-Suzuki collaboration that was put into place last year. There’s two variants across five trim levels and with two engine options. Bookings have officially opened at Toyota dealerships with the booking amount set at Rs 11,000.
The top spec V variant gets all the bells and whistles like LED headlamps, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, climate control and 16-inch alloy wheels. We have looked at the variant wise break-up of the Glanza and you can read about that here.
The Glanza will be offered with the 1.2-litre petrol as well as the 1.2-litre Dualjet hybrid. The former produces 83bhp/115Nm and can be had with a five-speed manual/CVT. The latter is good for 89bhp/113Nm and can be had with a five-speed manual only. The hybrid bit comes courtesy of functions like torque assist, stop-start technology and brake energy recovery function.
The Toyota Glanza will be the Japanese automaker’s first major foray into the premium hatchback segment where it will compete with the likes of the Honda Jazz, Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai Elite i20 and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. It is expected to be priced in the region of Rs 7.25 lakhs to Rs 9.25 lakhs.
