Toyota Glanza launched, undercuts the Baleno’s price

Toyota India has officially launched the Glanza hatchback in the country. The Glanza is essentially a rebadged version of the Maruti Baleno. It has been pegged at a starting price of Rs. 7.22 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Glanza is available in two trim levels, and three engine-gearbox options. Toyota Glanza

The Glanza shares its platform, design, and mechanicals with the Baleno. The only change visible is the revised grille with the Toyota badge, and updated moniker badges on the tailgate. The Toyota Glanza hatchback can be opted in two variants – G and V, which are based on the Baleno Zeta and Alpha variants, respectively.

Under the hood, the Glanza hatchback comes with two BS-VI compliant petrol engine options. The lower ‘G’ manual variant gets a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder, K12C DualJet engine that is complemented by a mild-hybrid system. It develops 90 PS and 113 Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, the G CVT variant and V trim come with a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder K12B block rated at 83 PS and 113 Nm of torque. While both engines come with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, the CVT automatic is available only on the K12B non-mild hybrid version. Fuel efficiency figures for the K12B MT is 21.01 km/l, for the K12C MT is 23.87 km/l, and K12B CVT is 19.56 km/l. It is worth noting that the fuel economy figures are identical to that of the Maruti Baleno. Toyota Glanza interiors

Let’s now talk about the variant-wise feature distribution of the Toyota Glanza. The entry-level G variant comes with an automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, navigation and voice command functionality. Occupant safety is taken care of by the presence of dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors. The Glanza G variant even gets precision-cut dual-tone alloy wheels, steering-mounted audio controls and push-button start-stop system. Meanwhile, the V variant adds features like UV-cut glass, LED DRLs for the headlights and different LED treatment for the tail-lamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto headlights with follow-me functionality and a reverse camera to the feature list.

The key differentiating factor for the Glanza is its best-in-class 3-year / 1,00,000 km warranty. Toyota is even offering customers an option to upgrade to a 5-year warranty. In comparison, the Maruti Baleno comes with 2-year / 40,000 km standard warranty.
