The 2019 Toyota Glanza is coming soon. It is launched this month and places Toyota in the premium hatchback segment. Apart from that, the exterior of the car does not seem to have any changes and appears to be a facelifted Baleno. The car gets a new grille with the Toyota logo and Toyota-centric badging at the rear. The pricing of this new hatchback starts at Rs 7.21 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The weight of the Baleno and the Glanza are exactly the same too. No difference in the build quality as well.

The car is made with The Maruti Suzuki Baleno in the same plant at Gujrat. Toyota offers only two top variants of the car. The Baleno on which it is going to be based has been recently updated with a new engine and a Smart Hybrid system as well.

2019 Toyota Glanza – Baleno Comparison
The overview of the 2019 Toyota Glanza is that is mechanically going to be the same car. The Baleno has an impressive road presence. The interiors are also roomy and feel quite airy. All these traits are going to be great for a Toyota car. The cars have some characteristics changed to their appearance. The Maruti Baleno was the car that gave the premium hatchback segment a boost. While being spacious and feature-loaded, it is economical as well. But apart from this, there is no change in the car. The Baleno and the Glanza is the same mechanically and features wise too.
The difference between the two is the 3 year/1 lakh km warranty which Toyota offers on Glanza, while Maruti continues to offer a 2 year/40,000 km warranty on the Baleno. Additionally, Toyota is expected to offer additional warranty packs, including a 5-year True Warranty package and a 7-year Toyota Timeless Warranty package (both are offered on a chargeable basis).
Toyota Glanza Price in India
The car is expected to be priced aggressively. Toyota is mindful of launching the car with an aggressive price. It will not want to give the Maruti Glanza a free rein on the market despite selling the same car. The 2019 Toyota Glanza cost, Rs 7.21 lakhs to Rs 8.90 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Toyota has struck a deal with Suzuki which involves them using the Ertiga, Ciaz and the Baleno. This move helps Toyota filling the gap in their line-up. It is interesting how the Suzuki plant copes with the added number of cars that it needs to produce along with the Toyota vehicles. Amidst all this, there was also news coming in last week about – 364 units have been manufactured and Maruti adding these units to its sales report. This is a point of contention where an OEM is not reporting the sales of a car wearing its badge and the sales is reported by the supplier.
