    You also get to choose an automatic transmission in this variant, and compared to the manual transmission, it costs Rs 1.32 lakh more -- which is on the expensive side for a CVT. Apart from this, you will also get a mild hybrid petrol engine in this variant, and this will cost around Rs 47,000 more. We believe that for a minor power upgrade and slightly better fuel efficiency, this upgrade is expensive.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Toyota Glanza Petrol Should You Buy?

    Among the 2 variants of the Glanza, it is better to buy the G variant. It has all the must-have and some good-to-have features as well. We would recommend that rather than upgrading to the V variant, it is better to go for the G variant and retrofit it with a rear parking camera -- this verdict is valid in the case of both the manual and the automatic transmission.
