After 10 Years with Swift VDi, I was looking for an upgrade but didn't want to lose the swiftness. So the obvious choice was a Baleno. I almost had my eyes set on Baleno Delta Diesel, But just waited a bit for Toyota to see what they offered under their badge. To my disappointment, there's nothing new except for the Toyota badge. When I was about to finalize on Baleno, Toyota lured me back with the pricing. For the same money, they offered an upgrade (to Zeta equivalent variant at the price of the delta) with the SHVS, saving me 63K! So I bought it immediately not wanting to lose out on the offer! But was sceptical about the petrol performance/mileage.
Now it's been a year almost and I have no regrets so far (except for the pathetic service experience at Lanson Toyota). To my surprise, Glanza exceeded my expectations in all areas (barring the turbo performance offered on the 1.3L Multijet Engine). The drivability and manoeuvring in city traffic is best in class. The recent recall for changing the fuel pump improved the pickup a bit more than it was (at the cost of mileage - a drop of 5% of course). But overall it's a good car especially for urban commuting with a bit of luxury (spacious).
I've rated it 4 out of 5. Reduced one star for the poor service experience during both first and second service at Lanson Toyota. They caused a small damage as well, then promised to rectify it in the second service. But they denied it when I took it there next time. Second time also they goofed up with cleaning and maintenance. Also safety is a bit of concern as the Heartact Platform doesn't offer that much structural rigidity in the build quality as they claim to be. But since I mostly use it within the city not much complaints.
