TOY­OTA KIR­LOSKAR Mo­tor (TKM) en­tered the pre­mium hatch­back seg­ment with the launch of the Toy­ota Glanza at a start­ing price of Rs 7.21 lakh for G MT vari­ant, Rs 7.58 lakh for the V MT, Rs 8.29 for the G CVT and Rs 8.90 lakh for the V CVT vari­ant (all prices ex-show­room, New Delhi). Now, the Glanza is es­sen­tially a Maruti Suzuki Baleno al­beit with a Toy­ota badge on the hood and boot and a re­designed grille. The Glanza comes with two slat 3D chrome grille, LED pro­jec­tor head­lamps and DRLs, LED rear lamp with tail light guide and el­tri­cally ad­justable ORVM. The Glanza sits on a set of 16-inch al­loy wheels.

At the heart lies the 1.2-litre, 4-cylin­der DualJet BSVI petrol en­gine (also from the Baleno) that churns out 89bhp and 113Nm of peak torque for the

G vari­ant with a 5-speed man­ual gear­box and ben­e­fits from a mild hy­brid setup. The

1.2-litre K-Se­ries petrol en­gine with 83bhp and 113Nm of peak torque pow­ers the G

CVT, V CVT and V MT vari­ants. This en­gine re­turns ARAI claimed fuel ef­fi­ciency in the range of 19.56kmpl to 23.87kmpl.
