Dimension Review

  • The Glanza is longer than the Freestyle by 41mm.
  • The Glanza is wider than the Freestyle by 8mm.
  • The Freestyle is taller than the Glanza by 60mm.
  • The Glanza has a longer wheelbase than the Freestyle; by 30mm.
  • The Glanza has 82 litres more boot space than the Freestyle.
  • The Freestyle has 20mm more ground clearance than the Glanza.

In terms of dimensions, the Glanza is wider and longer than the Freestyle but the Freestyle’s taller body with higher ground clearance gives it a better road presence. The 20mm of extra clearance is also very useful if you frequently drive on broken roads. The fact that you can get an SUV-like ground clearance for the hatchback-like price is another reason to consider the Freestyle over the Glanza.
