Planning to buy the Toyota Glanza and can’t decide which variant to buy? Check out this worth reading Toyota Glanza variants comparison to find the perfect trim for yourself.

Toyota is a carmaker that has been widely known for its SUVs in the Indian market. It has given the Indian market some indigenous vehicles like the Qualis, Fortuner, Prado and the Land Cruiser. However, the Indian consumers also want a hatchback that other carmakers have capitalized upon. Toyota tried its luck with launching some hatchbacks but did not achieve much success at the time. Now, with a joint venture with Maruti Suzuki, they have launched the Toyota Glanza which is similar to the Maruti Baleno. It is their step towards stepping into the hatchback market with an already established vehicle. With a fair amount of variants on offer, it might become a bit difficult for some people to make a purchase decision. This post will help people to make an informed decision.

The prices for the Glanza are similar to the Baleno as both the vehicles are essentially the same.
