The Toyota Glanza GMT is now available with a 1.2 litre K12M petrol engine. The base model of the Toyota Glanza essentially a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno was initially only offered in the smart Hybrid form with the Suzuki 1.2 liter, K12N Dual Het Mild Hybrid Powertrain. This new variant is an affordable version of the Glanza, which gets 1.2 liters, K12M engine without a mild hybrid system, and is priced at the cost of Rs.6.98 lakh (Ex-Showroom).
The K12M supported Toyota Glanza
GMT undercuts the Glanza G Smart Hybrid by Rs.24,000. Apparenlty, It is also less fuel-efficient compared to the other variant. K12M GMT’s mileage is rated at 21.02kmpl, while the K12N smart hybrid returns a mileage of 23.87kmpl.
The Glanza is available in two trims levels G and V, which are based on the Baleno Zeta and Alpha trim, respectively. The Dual Jet Smart Hybrid engine is only available with the lower GMT and not within the top-spec VMT, which only comes with the K2M engine. The K12M supported Glanza GMT also undercuts the Baleno Zeta model that is based on Rs.7,000. This is a much smaller difference compared to the massive Rs.65,000 margin that the Glanza GMT Smart Hybrid undercuts the Baleno Zeta Smart Hybrid by.
The Glanza is the first product to emerge from the Toyota Suzuki joint venture, which will also see the Maruti Suzuki supplying the Vitara Breeza, Ertiga, and Ciaz to Toyota in the time to come. Both the carmakers are also collaborating on the development of both the electric and hybrid models that will also co-develop a new C segment MPV that will be supplied to Suzuki as well.
