Toyota Glanza Car Insurance
Glanza is one unique offering from Toyota, which is the world’s 2nd biggest automobile company only behind Volkswagen in terms of sales. Unique because Toyota collaborated with Suzuki for their subcompact hatchback Baleno, and re-introduced it in the form of Glanza in the Indian market, where Baleno is already being sold under the Maruti Suzuki brand.
But despite these common factors, Toyota Glanza has been able to carve a unique niche for itself, and attracted new buyers who wanted to side with the brand Toyota, and wished to have a premium hatchback, which is not very costly, and powerful at the same time.
Key Specifications of Toyota Glanza
With a starting price of INR 7.01 lakhs (Ex-Showroom, New Delhi), Toyota Glanza has been positioned for families and youngsters, who are looking for a rock-solid urban mobility solution with high mileage, and low maintenance cost.
Glanza is only available in a petrol variant, supporting both MT and CVT transmissions. Interestingly, when Baleno was launched, it had a diesel variant which has now been discontinued. But Glanza was never available in the diesel variant.

Toyota Glanza Review
If you have driven a Suzuki Baleno, then quite frankly, you won’t find much difference while driving Toyota Glanza, since almost every aspect is the same in both cars. Glanza is easy and fun to drive, provides spacious interiors, the engine is refined and best suited for urban mobility, and the mileage is top-notch, best in the segment.
At the same time, driving this car at high speed on the highways can be a bit unsettling, and the build quality is average, to say the least. Technology-wise, Glanza doesn’t fail and provides all the advanced amenities which are present in the other car models in this segment.
Overall, a decent subcompact car for families, who wish to trust and experience the Toyota brand, under INR 10 lakh.
