As Toyota Glanza inches closer to its launch, which will be on 6 June 2019, some dealerships have initiated unofficial pre-bookings for a token amount of INR 10,000, says a new report from Autocar India.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor has initiated staff training and stocking units to prepare for the Glanza's launch. Earlier this month, the upcoming car's features, specs and configurations had leaked online. The new hatchback will be available in two trims, namely G and V (comparable to Maruti Baleno's Zeta and Alpha grades respectively).
The Toyota Glanza will be loaded with the usual paraphernalia expected in a premium B-segment hatchback, such as automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, navigation and voice command functionality, dual airbags, 16-inch precision-cut dual-tone alloy wheels, steering-mounted audio controls and push-button start. These features will be standard.
The higher V trim will pack additional features like UV-cut glass, LED DRLs for the headlights and different LED treatment for the tail-lamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto headlights with follow-me functionality and a reverse camera.
The engine options on the Toyota Glanza will include a BS-VI 1.2L VVT four-cylinder petrol engine (82.94PS/113Nm) and a BS-VI 1.2L Dual Jet Dual VVT four-cylinder petrol engine (89.74PS/113Nm) featuring a dual-battery mild-hybrid system. The former will be paired with a standard 5-speed MT or an optional CVT. It is claimed to deliver 21.01 km/l (MT)/19.56 km/l (CVT). The hybridised engine will be linked to a 5-speed MT (only available on G grade) and deliver 23.87 km/l.
Unlike the Maruti Baleno, the Toyota Glanza will be offered with a standard three-year/1,00,000km warranty. It will compete with the Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and the upcoming Tata Altroz as well.
