2022 Toyota Glanza Teased Before March 15 Launch
Toyota has teased the Glanza ahead of its March 15 release. The teasers show a more detailed view of the new premium hatchback’s front end and reveal some cosmetic differences between it and its sister model, the new Maruti Baleno.
The Glanza shares the same basic design and proportions as the Baleno, but Toyota appears to have put more effort into differentiating its product this time around. The Glanza’s front bumper is distinct, with a more pronounced mesh-finished central air-dam and larger fog lamp housings. The grille is also unique to the Toyota hatchback, with a design similar to that of the Camry. Smaller details include LED DRLs that highlight the headlamps, as opposed to the new Baleno’s three-dot design.
The alloy wheels on the sides also appear to be unique to the Toyota, though changes to the rear – as seen in previous spy photos – are expected to be down to finer details such as the internals of the tail lamps.
While Toyota hasn’t revealed all of the details about the interior, the car will have the same dashboard design as the Baleno, with the large 9.0-inch touchscreen sitting atop the centre console. The presence of a voice assistant for the system, as well as a different colour finish to the lower dashboard – the Baleno’s unit is finished in blue – has been confirmed by the carmaker.
In terms of features, the Glanza will be similar to the new Baleno, with features such as a 360-degree camera, head-up display, cruise control, auto climate control, and more.
The 2022 Toyota Glanza will share the same 90hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine as the Baleno in the engine lineup. Gearbox options are also expected to be carried over, with a 5-speed manual as standard and a 5-speed AMT unit available as an option.
Expect the Glanza to be more expensive than the Baleno, with the Toyota likely to be available in the top variant equivalent of the Baleno. The previous model was available in G and V trim levels, which corresponded to the higher mid-spec Baleno Zeta and fully-loaded Alpha.
