Toyota launches Glanza, price starts at Rs 7.22 lakh

Toyota launches Glanza, price starts at Rs 7.22 lakh

New Delhi, Jun 6 (UNI) Japanese auto major Toyota on Thursday launched the Glanza hatchback in partnership with Maruti Suzuki in India, with prices starting at Rs 7.22 lakh.

While interacting with media at the launch, Mr Masakazu Yoshimura, Managing Director said it is the first car to be developed under the new partnership and a version of Suzuki's Baleno. The two hatchbacks are quite similar, Toyota has made a few changes to differentiate the two. For starters, the front grille has been reworked and features more chrome than the one on the Baleno. The only other change on the outside is the different badging.

The base G (MT Smart Hybrid) variant priced at Rs 7.22 lakh. The V (MT) variant has been priced at Rs 7.58 lakh while the G (CVT) variant has been priced at Rs 8.30 lakh. The top-of-the-line automatic variant, V (CVT) has been priced at Rs 8.90 lakh.

On the features front, the Glanza is specced like the Baleno (Zeta variant of Baleno for G variant of Glanza and Alpha variant of Baleno for V variant of Glanza). It's infotainment system has been dubbed Smart Playcast but it is the same unit present in the Baleno. Toyota is offering it on all variants of the Glanza. On the safety front, the Glanza will come with dual front airbags and ABS with EBD as standard on all variants, Mr Yoshimura.

The Glanza borrows both the petrol engines that are offered with the Baleno. The base G variant of the Glanza is available with the 1.2-litre petrol engine with the mild-hybrid tech, in its manual avatar.

This engine makes 90PS/113Nm and was recently introduced on the Baleno. All other variants of the Glanza are available with the 1.2-litre 83PS/113Nm engine, that is offered in multiple Maruti cars. Both the G and V variants of the Glanza can be had with a CVT gearbox, albeit not with the newer 1.2-litre engine that has mild-hybrid tech. The Glanza is not available with a diesel engine, unlike the Baleno.

Toyota will offer their own 3 year/1,00,000km warranty with the Glanza instead of the 2 year/40,000km warranty offered by Maruti with the Baleno. The extended warranty will go up to 5years/2,20,000km, the MD said.
