Toyota Glanza: CHEAPEST variant of Maruti Baleno based premium hatchback reviewed on video

Toyota Glanza, the first product to come out from the partnership of Suzuki and Toyota in India is already in showrooms across India. The first-ever premium hatchback from the brand, which is a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno is available in two trim levels – G and V. Both the trim levels get a manual and automatic transmission. While there are quite a few walkarounds of the Toyota Glanza V version, which is the top-end variant of the model, here is the first walkaround of the Toyota Glanza G variant, which is the entry-level version of the car.

The video by Car Duniya shows the Toyota Glanza from all around. The entry-level manual version of the Toyota Glanza is priced at Rs 7.21 lakh, while the automatic version of the car is priced at Rs 8.29 lakh. It should be noted that the Glanza’s manual base variant is offered with the Smart Hybrid technology, which makes it the most affordable car in India with the system. Maruti offers the system with the Zeta variant, which is priced at Rs 7.87 lakh, ex-showroom. However, the Glanza G offers a lesser number of features when compared to the Zeta variant of the Baleno.
