Toyota Glanza Preview

The Suzuki and Toyota in 2018 made an announcement to share their best selling cars with each other. As a result, Baleno and the Vitara Brezza from Maruti Suzuki brand will be exchanged with Toyota’s best selling Corolla.
This can help Toyota to step into the entry-level divisions where it holds a mere presence and Maruti targets to step in the higher divisions with the presence of the re-engineered Corolla. Both the companies have agreed upon the terms of bringing a significant difference in the exteriors and interiors from each other. Toyota Glanza is the name which will comprise of only 2 variants namely Alpha and Zeta.

Toyota Glanza Exterior

We can expect the upcoming Toyota Glanza to host a design that resembles the global Toyota vehicles. The grille in the front will be somewhat more conventional rather than the prominent ‘U’ shaped. The foglights, bumpers and headlights will likely get tweaked to match the design appeal of Toyota. Talking about the rear, it will be hosting wider tail-lights that are typical of the Toyota cars and an upgraded design to the bumpers and spoilers. We can expect the Toyota to add more of chrome to render the car with an upmarket feel.

Toyota Glanza Interior

While talking about the interiors of the Glanza, it is possible that it will get a makeover and very unlikely that it will carry forward the prior same design of Maruti. We can possibly expect the interiors to be more upmarket and be finished with the superior quality of materials. The dashboard structure can be the same as the prevailing Toyotas, similar to the case of exteriors. As Toyota cars generally are well-equipped hence the Toyota Glanza will be equipped with dual-zone climate control, leather seats, massive touchscreen infotainment system, electrically adjustable front driver seats and the sunroof will get added as well.

Toyota Glanza Engine & Transmission

Talking about the engine in the Toyota Glanza, the 1.2-litre K12 petrol engine is likely to get carried over. Having said that, the Glanza might receive a k12C engine on which Maruti Suzuki is currently working. The fully hybrid option will be offered by Toyota as its signature. Both Toyota and Suzuki will be mulling on electric power. The car with the 1.2-litre K12B petrol engine will produce a max power of 83PS and 115Nm of peak torque. The engine will come mated with either a 5-speed CVT or a manual transmission. The petrol engine of the Glanza will be a BSVI compliant.

Toyota Glanza Braking and Safety

We can expect great safety specs in the upcoming 2019 Toyota Glanza for sure. There will be a possibility that Toyota will be offering features like ABS with EBD, Electronic safety Program, disc brakes in all wheels and a total of 6 airbags. Toyota surely has to prove the strength of their build quality so they could better excel in the crash test norms forthcomingly.

What do we think about Toyota Glanza ?

In our opinion, Toyota which is a global leader in the Automotive Industry will surely play their masterstroke in transforming the overall look and features of the car and will definitely give a very tough competition to its rivals catering to the hatchback segment.

Toyota Glanza Competitors

Key competitors of the Toyota Glanza comprises the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20 and Honda Jazz.
