The all-new Toyota Glanza | Upcoming hatchback in India
The new Glanza will take Baleno as its starting point, and we will not have to wait for big stylistic differences, beyond a series of modifications to the front, in order to adopt the identity of the Toyota models. Toyota Glanza price range between Rs 5.50 lakh and Rs 8.50 lakh.
The Toyota Glanza is expected to be launched in two petrol options, which will include Maruti Suzuki’s 1.2-litre, four-cylinder with K12 petrol engine which powers the Baleno. The other one could be Toyota’s 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that is tuned to make 79 bhp and 104 Nm torque.
Transmission duties are expected to be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the Baleno-sourced petrol motor could come with the optional CVT automatic transmission. Toyota Glanza mileage – The 1.2L MT will deliver a fuel economy of 21.01kmpl.
The new Toyota Glanza presents great similarities with the Suzuki Baleno, practically in what differs is in the grille that is of new design and it takes the new insignia of Toyota, this one is adorned in chrome to give a little more elegance to the new model. In its sides it preserves the same design of the Baleno using the same alloys of tires in which only differs in the centre of the wheel with the insertion of the Toyota logo. In the same way it must happen with his saga where the difference will be marked by the logos.
Toyota Glanza specification
There are no images of its interior, but according to the chosen finish that are the ‘V’ and the ‘G’ there will be some differences in internal equipment, especially in the infotainment system that basing our expectations on the existing Baleno could be a 7-inch touch screen compatible with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, automatic climate control, colour MID screen and LED headlights, among others.
Only a mechanical offer
The engine that will give movement to the Toyota Glanza will be the same that feeds the Baleno, therefore the motor supply goes to the 1.2 litter DualJet propeller whose power offered is 90 HP along with 113 Nm of torque. This engine incorporates SHVS technology that improves fuel efficiency and will be coupled either to a 5-speed manual transmission or to an automatic CVT type. Although not yet official, the new hatchback may have a warranty of at least three years or 100,000 kilometres. We will have to wait for its official launch on June 6 to know this and more details of the new Toyota Glanza for India.
The maintenance of this car requires the same care as any other vehicle with a turbocharged engine, paying special attention to lubrication. Make use of a quality synthetic oil, do not accelerate strongly with the engine cold, leave the engine idling for a few seconds before stopping after travelling on the highway and frequently monitor the temperature. If you have purchased it second hand, go to a Toyota dealer to check the condition of the timing belt. This engine has a mixed drive system with pinions and belt, but depending on the mileage it may need replacement.
