Toyota Glanza India launch has been confirmed for June 6, 2019. Primarily a rebadged version of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the premium hatchback will be available with a 1.2-litre petrol engine initially. As per Toyota Glanza images leaked online, the model will mimic the styling of its donor model on the outside. Interior will also be identical to Maruti Suzuki Baleno save for some additional features if any.
A teaser video featuring upcoming Toyota Glanza has also been released which reveals its front. The face looks identical to Maruti Suzuki Baleno save for the new chrome finished grille. Moving to the side, it borrows the same alloy wheels as seen in Baleno. Similarly, rear has been styled akin to its donor model save for Toyota Glanza badge. As reported earlier, Toyota Glanza will be available in two variants-G and V. The G trim is likely to be entry-level variant and will be based on the Baleno Zeta. On the other hand, the top-spec V grade will be based on Baleno’s range-topping Alpha trim.
Talking of the Toyota Glanza interior, it will be same as Baleno in terms of styling with the same design for the dashboard and steering wheel featuring an additional Toyota badge. There will be no difference in terms of the interior colour scheme. Toyota Glanza feature list could include the SmartPlay Studio infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen which is offered with Baleno. However, Toyota could either make tweaks to the infotainment system’s interface or offer an additional feature with Glanza.
Coming to Toyota Glanza specifications, it will be available with a single 82 bhp, 1.2-litre K12B petrol engine. This is the same unit which powers Maruti Baleno facelift. Toyota could add a new 1.2-litre K12C Dualjet engine with Suzuki’s Smart Hybrid technology at a later stage. Transmission options will include a conventional five-speed manual unit and an optional CVT. The upcoming hatchback is expected to get three-year/100,000 km warranty as standard in line with other Toyota cars. It could additionally come with extended warranty plans including the five-year True warranty package that can be availed within the standard manufacturing warranty. On the other hand, the seven-year Toyota Timeless Warranty package can be bought only after the standard warranty is over. While Toyota Glanza will be identical to Baleno save for some changes, the Toyota Glanza price in India is likely to be slightly higher than its donor model. In its segment, the premium hatchback will take on the likes of upcoming Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and Hyundai i20.
