A recent set of spy images of the upcoming Toyota Glanza, the Maruti Baleno-based hatchback, reveal the exterior of the new model in totality

Most of you would be knowing that Suzuki and Toyota have announced a joint venture under which the former will supply the latter with some of its vehicles that will be rebadged and retailed in specific markets. In line with this, Toyota even released a teaser of their first upcoming product from this partnership, the Maruti Baleno-based Toyota Glanza. A new set of spy images have revealed the exterior of the Glanza and as expected, the new model looks almost totally like the donor hatchback.

One can easily spot that Toyota has made almost no changes on the outside. The new Toyota Glanza, as compared to the Maruti Baleno, gets a revised upper grille. The new unit is chrome-garnished and is in line with the latest styling language of Toyota. However, other than this, nothing much has changed. Even the alloy wheels are the same and the only other difference that you will find is the usage of Toyota-specific badges instead of the Maruti ones. 

The variant name of this specific Glanza model is 'V'. The 'V' variant is likely to be the top-of-the-line variant based on the Alpha trim level of the Baleno, and below 'V' sits the 'G' variant which is based on the Baleno Zeta. We don't have any images of the interior of the Glanza but we can expect it to be almost similar to that of the Maruti Baleno. The possible interior changes which the Glanza is expected to carry include revised interior colour combinations and small tweaks to the infotainment system.

Mechanically, the Toyota Glanza will be powered by the K12C 1.2-litre petrol unit that powers the Baleno. Toyota won't offer an option of a diesel engine. The transmission duties will be done by a five-speed manual and a CVT. Another important difference between the Toyota Glanza and the Maruti Baleno will arise out of their standard warranties. Toyota will offer a three-year/1,00,000km warranty as standard. In comparison, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno comes with a standard warranty of two-year/40,000km. A Toyota Glanza owner can also extend his warranty for five years and seven years. The Toyota Glanza will hit the Indian market in June 2019. Moreover, the hatchback will be offered only in two high-spec variants and it will demand a slight premium over the Maruti Baleno.
