The Glanza is a hatchback made by Toyota and has replaced the Etios in India. The Glanza is basically a rebadged Baleno with few changes but as a hatchback it is a very good premium small car. The various trims on offer include G and V. MyNewCar recommends the V. The colour options are Insta Blue, Gaming Grey, Enticing Silver, Sportin Red and Cafe White.

TOYOTA GLANZA EXTERIOR

Just like the new Baleno the Glanza gets distinctive headlamps plus the V shape grille along with 16inch alloys where there are sharp looking projector headlamps with LED DRLs too. The dimensions are 3995 mm in length, 1745 mm in width and 1510 mm in height. Its wheelbase is 2520 mm.

TOYOTA GLANZA INTERIOR

The interior of the Glanza carries a black sporty theme with V shaped centre console and a futuristic instrument cluster with blue lighting plus the Hybrid version has added features. The quality is good and all black cabin does seem airy with good space. It has a good amount of features on offer with push button start, touchscreen with all smartphone connectivity, electrically foldable mirrors, steering controls, rear camera etc though there are no rear ac vents.

TOYOTA GLANZA DRIVING

The Glanza is petrol only and comes with a 1.2l petrol but in that it comes with two petrol engines with the both engines being available with a manual but crucially the 1.2l dualject petrol comes with a smart hybrid system. To drive the Glanza manual is a nice and comfortable hatchback and even though the manual is light we will say go for the CVT automatic for convenience. The ride is good and the handling decent for a hatchback with light electric steering.

TOYOTA GLANZA ENGINE

There are two petrol engines while the 1.2l standard makes 83 bhp and 113Nm, the Dualjet makes 90 bhp and 113Nm. There is a 5-speed manual and CVT on the 1.2l standard while the 1.2l Dualjet makes do with a manual gearbox only as standard. The mileage is 21.01 kmpl for the petrol manual to 23.87 kmpl for the smart hybrid petrol to 19.56 kmpl for the CVT.

TOYOTA GLANZA SAFETY

It gets safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking camera, ISOFIX.

TOYOTA GLANZA MAINTENANCE

The first service is free at 5,000 km or 6 months while the next ones are within 10,000 km or 6 months with cost varying from Rs 2,000 to Rs 5,000.

TOYOTA GLANZA RIVALS

The Glanza counts the Hyundai i20, Tata Altroz, Maruti Baleno, Volkswagen Polo as rivals.

TOYOTA GLANZA VALUE

The Glanza starts at Rs 6.9 lakh to Rs 8.9 lakh and at that price it is a good premium hatchback that has all you need with good space, features plus looks along with fuel efficiency. It has better warranty and is better value than other hatchbacks.
