Underneath the shell, the Baleno and the Glanza are related automobiles. However the way in which these are being provided to prospects makes them completely different.
However for Maruti Suzuki, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) couldn’t have succeeded within the small automotive phase (it failed with the Etios Liva). Thanks, nevertheless, to the worldwide collaboration between Toyota Motor and Suzuki Motor, TKM has been pretty profitable with the Glanza—rebadged model of the Baleno—by promoting over 66,000 items of the identical in nearly three years (it was launched in June 2019).So, when Maruti Suzuki launched the all-new Baleno in February, the brand new Glanza needed to observe, on which TKM designers have carried out a cracker of a job.Whereas beneath the shell the Baleno and the Glanza are related automobiles, the way in which these are being provided to prospects makes them like chalk and cheese.
A key distinction is on the entrance, the place Toyota designers have used a horizontal, wing-like chrome design line that runs from one headlight to a different, making the Glanza look wider than it’s.

The Baleno has a black and silver cabin, making it look sportier inside. The cabin of Glanza, alternatively, has a shade of beige with matte black and piano black, making it look extra premium.
The Baleno will get the Suzuki Join (with 40-odd linked automotive options), whereas the Glanza will get Toyota’s i-Join (with greater than 45 linked automotive options).
The engine (1197cc petrol) and all technical specs are the identical for each automobiles. Each get handbook and AMT (automated handbook transmission) gearbox choices, however whereas Maruti Suzuki calls the latter as AGS (Auto Gear Shift), TKM merely calls it AMT. Claimed gas effectivity is 22.35 km/litre (handbook) and 22.94 km/litre (AMT/AGS).
Variant to variant, the Glanza is Rs 4,000 to Rs 20,000 dearer than the Baleno. A purpose may very well be that the Glanza appears to be like extra premium and will get extra connectivity options, and maybe additionally as a result of Toyota has a stronger model worth.
