Despite packing similar features as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the Glanza is likely to command a premium over its donor car
The Toyota Glanza likely to feature both the 1.2 VVT petrol and 1.2 DualJet Smart Hybrid engines.
Will be available in two variants – G and V. Both variants likely to be offered with a CVT.
Glanza G and V could share their feature list with the Baleno Zeta and Alpha, respectively.
Toyota is gearing up to launch the Glanza on 6 June 2019. Various spy shots of the hatchback confirm that it will not only look similar to the Maruti Suzuki Baleno but share its features too. The Glanza will be offered in two variants – G and V – instead of the four variants that Maruti Suzuki offers. A few dealers across various cities have already started accepting bookings for the Glanza for a token payment of Rs 10,000 ahead of its launch.
Toyota is likely to offer the Glanza with the Baleno’s BS6 petrol engine options. So there will be the 1.2-litre K12B engine that makes 83PS and 113Nm of torque and the 1.2-litre DualJet engine that gets a mild hybrid unit and produces 90PS and 113Nm of torque.
The entry level variant of the Glanza could pack the same set of features seen on the Zeta variant of the Baleno while the top variant could share its feature list with the Baleno Alpha. Both variants will be available with a CVT option as well. Here’s what we think the Toyota Glanza is likely to be priced at when launched in the country.
|Variant (ex-showroom price)||Expected Toyota Glanza Prices||Prices Of The Equivalent Maruti Suzuki Baleno Variant|
|1.2 Dualjet (mild-hybrid) MT G||Rs 7.99 lakh||Rs 7.87 lakh|
|1.2 Petrol CVT G||Rs 8.50 lakh||Rs 8.30 lakh|
|1.2 Petrol MT V||Rs 7.79 lakh||Rs 7.58 lakh|
|1.2 Petrol CVT V||Rs 9.09 lakh||Rs 8.90 lakh|
The Toyota Glanza is likely to receive a 3-year/1 lakh kilometre warranty instead of the Baleno’s 2-year/40,000 km warranty package. As a memory refresher, we’ll leave you with the prices of the Toyota Glanza’s rivals powered by a petrol engine below.
