Speaking about the latest Toyota, the Glanza is doing as was expected by Toyota. The company had hoped to sell about 2,000 units of Glanza each month this year. Toyota Glanza is Toyota Kirloskar Motor’s first venture into the premium hatchback segment. It is offered in two variants – G and V and based on the top two variants of the Baleno – Zeta and Alpha. This rebadged Maruti Suzuki Baleno sees no change in its exterior design or in its interior makeup. The Glanza is also powered by the same engine lineup as seen on the Baleno with the only differences being in its badging seen on its grille, wheels and tailgate.

Toyota Glanza G variant is powered by Suzuki’s 1.2 liter, dual jet engine with SHVS mild hybrid system. This engine offers 90 hp power and 113 Nm torque mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. The other grades get a 1.2 liter VVT engine offering 83 hp power and 114 Nm torque mated to a 5 speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox. Both these engines are BS VI compliant while there is no diesel engine option. Mileage figures on the Glanza V MT stand at 21.01 kmpl going up to 23.87 kmpl on the G MT and at 19.56 on the CVT. These mileage figures are the same as that seen on the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
