Toyota India is all set to launch its newest hatchback, the Toyota Glanza. We already know so far that the Glanza is essentially a Toyota-badged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the new Toyota Glanza is the first model to come out as part of the Toyota - Suzuki alliance which was announced in 2017 and details about the new products were shared earlier this year. Though the Glanza is almost similar to Baleno, there are some elements to differentiate it. Here's what to expect.

The new Toyota Glanza is expected to come with a new grille and slightly tweaked face in order to differentiate it from the Baleno. Other than this, the only difference you will see on the outside is Toyota badge which has replaced the Maruti Suzuki badge.

The Toyota Glanza is expected to be launched in two petrol options, which will include Maruti Suzuki's 1.2-litre, four-cylinder 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. However, we still don't have any clarity about the diesel engine option. The petrol engine is expected to be mated with the five-speed transmission while the CVT automatic is expected to be standard.
We expect the Glanza to be slightly more expensive than the Etios, thus we expect the ex-showroom prices to start at around ₹ 5.9 lakh, possibly going up to ₹ 8.5 lakh.
