Highlights

  • The new Toyota Glanza G MT trim doesn't get the smart hybrid tech
  • The new G variant is Rs. 24,000 cheaper than the mild hybrid version

Toyota has silently introduced a new G MT (manual transmission) base variant for its Maruti Suzuki Baleno-based premium hatchback Glanza. Priced at ₹ 6.98 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), unlike the exiting entry-level G MT variant, this one doesn't come with a smart hybrid system and is also ₹ 24,000 cheaper. Both the entry-level variants will co-exist and will continue to get the same features and creature comforts. The Toyota Glanza is only offered in two trim options G and V, which are equivalent to the Zeta and Alpha trim of the Baleno, and are now divided into five variants - G MT, G MT (Smart Hybrid), V MT, G CVT, and V CVT.

Under the hood, the new entry-level Toyota Glanza G variant gets the regular 1.2-litre VVT petrol engine, and like the other, this too is a Bharat Stage VI (BS6) compliant engine. The 1197 cc, four-cylinder engine is tuned to churn out 82 bhp at 6,000 rpm, which is about 6 bhp less than what the mild hybrid version makes. The torque output, however, is the same 113 Nm at 4,200 rpm. Transmission duties are handled by the same 5-speed manual gearbox, but given the fact that this doesn't get the mild-hybrid system, the car returns a slightly lesser fuel efficiency of 21.01 kmpl. The Glanza variant also comes with an optional CVT automatic transmission, offered with both G and V trims.

The new Toyota Glanza G MT variant continues to get the same offerings as the G MT (smart hybrid) variant

As already mentioned, in terms of looks and features, the new Toyota Glanza G MT variant continues to get the same offerings as the G MT (smart hybrid) variant. So, the car continues to come with LED projector headlamps, LED rear combination taillamps, diamond-cut alloy wheels, chrome grille, chrome door handles, touchscreen infotainment system, voice command, and steering mounted controls among others. Having said that, because it doesn't get the smart hybrid system, which features a Lithium-Ion battery and a Lead Acid battery, the car misses out on features like - Ideal start-stop function, torque assist function, and brake energy regeneration function.
