As far as fuel economy is concerned, the Glanza V MT will deliver 21.01kpl, the G MT (Smart Hybrid) will return 23.87kpl, and the CVT has a claimed fuel efficiency of 19.56kpl.
The Glanza will come in two trims only – the V and the G – and so you can expect them to be pretty well loaded, even with the base variant. It will have automatic climate control, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, navigation and voice commands. Safety features will include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and a reverse camera, along with speed and seatbelt warning systems to confirm to the latest safety regulations.
Toyota will have an edge over the Baleno in terms of the warranty. Toyota is expected to offer three-year/1,00,000km warranty as standard as is available on all other Toyota models in India. When launched, the Toyota Glanza will take on the likes of the Baleno, the i20, the Jazz, the Polo and the upcoming Tata Altroz.
