    Toyota has made its way into the premium hatchback segment in India with the launch of the Glanza. Toyota has kept the pricing very competitive starting at Rs 7.22 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Toyota has launched the Glanza in only two variants, the G and V with both automatic and manual transmission.
