2022 Toyota Glanza features an assortment of updates both on the inside and out; derives power from a 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine with MT and AMT options

Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) began the teaser campaign of the new Glanza a few weeks ago and since then most of its details came out arousing anticipation amongst enthusiasts. The 2022 Toyota Glanza has officially been launched today with a starting price of Rs. 6.39 lakh for the base variant and it goes all the way up to Rs. 9.69 lakh (ex-showroom) for the range-topping model.

The Japanese auto major looks to take advantage of the good reception for the rebadged Glanza and Urban Cruiser in the latest instalment that sees both models getting a big upgrade (all-new Urban Cruiser will launch following the debut of new-gen Vitara Brezza this year). Compared to the previous model, the 2022 Glanza gets a number of revisions inside and out.

More importantly, it does have telling visual differences compared to the recently introduced Baleno facelift, which it is based on. The outgoing Glanza was differentiated from the pre-facelifted Baleno only by a slight margin but now the new premium hatchback gains a sportier chrome grille and more appealing changes at the front.
