The Toyota Glanza has been launched in India at Rs 7.21 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Available in two variants, G and V, the hatchback comes with two petrol engine options from the Baleno. The Glanza is priced from Rs 7.21 lakh to Rs 8.90 lakh and will lock horns with the Honda Jazz, Hyundai Elite i20, Volkswagen Polo and its identical twin, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.

As you can see from the table above, all varaints of the Glanza except the Smart Hybrid are priced on par with the Baleno, which is quite a pleasant surprise. Meanwhile, the G MT variant of the Glanza undercuts the respective Baleno Zeta Smart Hybrid by a staggering Rs 65,000! However, these are introductory prices and could go up later.

The Glanza is a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. Both these cars are also made at the same Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar. Toyota, at the least, could have made some changes to the hatchback. Instead what we get is the Baleno with a fancy new name and a Toyota Badge. A revised front grille and different monikers are the only difference between both these cars. The Glanza comes with a 3-year/1-lakh km warranty as opposed to Baleno’s 2-year/40,000km warranty. Also impressive is the Glanza's extended warranty which is offered upto 5 years/2.2 lakh km (including the standard warranty).

Powertrain options include a 1.2-litre petrol mild-hybrid option that makes 90PS and 113Nm and a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces  83PS and 113Nm. The mild hybrid option is only available with the base-spec G variant paired with the manual gearbox. The naturally-aspirated engine is standard on the top-spec V variant. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a CVT gearbox and both engines are BS6 compliant.

The Glanza gets features such as a 7-inch Smart Playcast infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, auto folding mirrors, steering mounted audio controls, and LED projector headlamps with light guides. Safety features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors with camera.


 The Glanza is available in five shades - white, red, blue, grey and silver. Which is again the same colour pallette available with the Baleno. Despite not featuring any significant changes with respect to the Baleno, Toyota's decision to keep the prices competitive (and lower in case of the Smart Hybrid variant) should bode well for prospective buyers.
