The Toyota Glanza Sport features a dual-tone paint scheme that is a dealer-level addition, it costs Rs 20,000 more than the stock version of the vehicle

The Toyota Glanza has been pretty quick to find a sweet spot in the B2-segment of the market. Essentially a rebadged Maruti Baleno, the Glanza seems to have even attracted some buyers away from the donor model. In an interesting development, we’ve got to know that some TKM dealerships are offering Toyota Glanza Sport, an unofficial dual-tone variant of the company’s latest premium hatchback.

The move by these dealers to offer a dual-tone paint scheme on the Toyota Glanza seems to be a result of the growing interest in dual-tone colour schemes. While vehicles like the Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Nissan Kicks, Tata Nexon, Tata Harrier, and the upcoming Kia Seltos are available with factory-provided dual-tone colour options, it’s not uncommon to see the authorized offering an aftermarket dual-tone finish.

Officially, the Toyota Glanza has been available in five single-tone colour options, viz.
Red, White, Blue, Grey, and Silver. However, to capitalize on the fast-growing demand for dual-tone paint options, a dealer seems to have come up with a white-red dual-tone scheme for the Maruti Baleno-based offering.

As is evident from the images we have here, the dual-tone paint job successfully adds some spice to the Toyota Glanza. Basically, the dealer has added several red highlights to the white exterior of the vehicle to give it a sporty look. While the base paint is the factory-spec ‘Café White’, many parts like the roof, rear spoiler, fog lamps housing, and the Outside Rear View Mirrors (ORVMs) have been the ‘Cherry Red’ treatment for the dual-tone look.

This dual-tone paint scheme for the Toyota Glanza costs Rs 20,000. For the uninitiated, the Toyota Glanza draws power from the familiar BS6-compliant Suzuki 1.2-litre K12B petrol engine that can output a maximum power of 83 bhp and a peak torque of 113 Nm.

Buyers can even opt for a SHVS mild-hybrid technology for the 1.2-litre petrol variant. In this avatar, the motor outputs a maximum power of 90 hp and a peak torque of 113 Nm. While the Toyota Glanza is essentially a rebadged Maruti Baleno, it gets a better standard warranty. Compared to the 2-year/40,000 km standard warranty that’s available on the Baleno, buyers of the Glanza benefit from a 3-year/unlimited km cover.
