In the need to cater to audiences looking for an alternative to beat the rising fuel prices, carmakers are taking the CNG route.
This Maruti Baleno CNG and Toyota Glanza CNG comparison is aimed at those who are looking to choose between the two seemingly similar products. We know that the Glanza is a rebadged version of the Baleno. Irrespective of which powertrain we consider, both these premium hatchbacks are essentially the same. In fact, Maruti produces both these. Therefore, there is not much to choose between these two. Nevertheless, we shall try to offer some points to consider that will help you make an informed decision.

Both these vehicles are powered by a 1.2-litre engine that produces 77.5 PS and 98.5 Nm. There are options of a 5-speed MT or an AMT gearbox but the CNG versions come with the manual gearbox only. Having identical powertrains means that the mileage will also be identical, which is 30.61 km/kg. Therefore, this is not a criterion where any of them has an upper hand.

Now, we understand that these two cars are identical and therefore, making a decision between these two could be a bit challenging. However, you must know that the difference in the price of Rs 15,000 will get you an additional 1-year warranty in the case of Glanza CNG (3 years / 1,00,000 km) compared to the Baleno CNG (2 years / 40,000 km). Therefore, there is that peace of mind. But it must be mentioned that one could extend the warranty on both cars. We would like to suggest that you must opt for the one whose dealership is closer to you and is offering more discount (if any).
