Japanese automaker Toyota is all set to launch the rebadged Baleno soon. The manufacturer has confirmed the launch date for Toyota Glanza on 6th June 2019 for the Indian market. The leaked images for the upcoming premium hatchback confirm that the 2019 Toyota Glanza will look a lot similar like the Suzuki Baleno at the exterior as well as at the interior.
Under the hood, the all-new Toyota Glanza will be available with a 1.2-liter K12B petrol engine producing 82 bhp of maximum power and 113 Nm of peak torque. This is the same unit that powers Maruti Baleno facelift. Toyota is likely to add a new 1.2-liter K12C Dualjet engine with Suzuki’s Smart Hybrid technology at a later stage. In terms of transmission, the upcoming hatchback will come mated to a conventional five-speed manual unit and an optional CVT.
In terms of design and features, Toyota had recently teased the front look of the Glanza. According to the teaser, the hatchback looks identical to Maruti Suzuki Baleno except for the new chrome finished grille added to the front fascia. Moving to the side, it has the same alloy wheels as seen in Baleno. Similarly, rear has been styled the same way as the Baleno except for the Toyota Glanza badge. As reported earlier, Toyota Glanza will be available in two variants- G and V. The G trim is likely to be an entry-level variant and will be based on the Baleno Zeta. On the other hand, the top-spec V grade will be based on Baleno’s range-topping Alpha trim.
