While the SUVs may be gaining popularity with the masses, but the hatchbacks are still here to stay. That is why big automotive brands keep bringing out new hatchbacks to capture market share and people’s hearts alike.
Most recently, the Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota has launched its first cross- badged hatchback car called ‘Glanza.’ Everything from this premium car’s look and appeal to its various utility and security features, this hatchback has got everyone talking about it.
So, let’s tell you more about this car and why it is creating a buzz ever since its launch.
Launched in June this year, the Toyota ‘Glanza’ is the first car from the Maruti Suzuki-Toyota partnership. It is a cross badged car and is based on Maruti Suzuki’s Baleno.
It is a premium hatchback that has been launched at an introductory price of Rs. 7.22 lakh and the top-end model are priced at Rs.8.90 lakh.
This stylish car comes in two variants, namely G and V, which will get both the manual and automatic transmission. Also, the top-end will have V CVT trim.
Majorly same in design as Baleno, the Glanza’s stylish exteriors go a step further with Toyota’s badging all around its grille.
Cool and Stylish Colors
What ups Glanza’s style quotient is that it comes in 5 smart colors, which are sure to appeal to the tastes of modern urban buyers. The colors are Café White, Sportin’ Red, Insta Blue, Gaming Grey, and Enticing Silver.
The car looks impressively attractive in all the colors and justifies why it is not just any regular hatchback, but a premium category one.
The new Toyota Glanza is engineered with high tensile steel to ensure enhanced safety for car’s driver and passenger both.
Buyers can, therefore, have the utmost confidence that all occupants will remain protected by a combination of various active and passive safety features, fitted inside and outside the car.
Moreover, this hatchback equipped with a new innovative platform also ensures superior crash resiliency, better rigidity, and improved Noise Vibration and Harness (NVH) performance.
Also, with dual SRS airbags, be sure that Glanza’s got your back when you’re on the road with its uncompromising safety features.
In addition to all this, the cars anti-braking system is also through Electronic Breaking Distribution and Breaking Assistance, which distributes breaking- pressure to each wheel. This especially helps in case of emergency braking situations.
Flawless driving Experience
Unlike Maruti Suzuki’s Baleno, ‘Glanza’ has CVT (continuous variable transmission) petrol engine type, that provides an impressive fuel consumption of 19 kmpl to this car.
Moreover, the auto enthusiast will be delighted to know that Glanza also has a powerful and fuel- efficient K-series engine. This is one major advantage that this car offers.
The K-series engine delivers a far more superior driving experience. It is because it gives this hatchback exceptional power and low-end torque.
Adding to all this, a seamless CVT/MT transmission further promises you a flawless driving experience.
This premium Toyota car comes loaded with many advanced and enhanced tech features that can make your driving experience even more fun.

So, if you’re looking for a hatchback car, and you already like Baleno, then Glanza will delight you even more. Moreover, the smart color variants in which it is available will complement your personality too.
However, no matter which car you choose, make sure that you buy the right vehicle insurance for your car. Having motor insurance is also a mandatory requirement as per Motor Vehicle’s Act, 1988, and therefore, it is essential that you get the right coverage for your car and your yourself.
