Reliable sources have revealed that Toyota Glanza will be offered in mid-spec G and range-topping V grades. The production of the rebadged Baleno is currently underway at Suzuki's production facility in Gujarat. However, the production is expected to be shifted to Toyota's twin manufacturing units in Bidadi near Bengaluru soon. This tactical move is made to free some space at the Suzuki plant while attempting to utilize the full capacity of Toyota's two production facilities in Karnataka. Besides the Baleno, TKM will also launch the rebadged version of several Maruti products such as Vitara Brezza, Ertiga and Ciaz in the Indian and the African markets. All these products will be retailed exclusively via Toyota showrooms.

Mechanically, Toyota Glanza will be powered by a BSIV-compliant 1.2L K12B petrol engine. The engine will be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard while a CVT gearbox will available as option. There is no word on the introduction of diesel variants, however they might be introduced at a later stage. Recently, Maruti Baleno got the BSVI-compliant 1.2-litre DualJet K12C engine with Smart Hybrid (SHVS) system. It is still unclear whether the SHVS system will be offered with the Glanza or not. Toyota Glanza will be in a severe faceoff in the Indian market with the likes of Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz, Hyundai i20 and soon-to-be-launched Tata Altroz.
