Just before I start with my views about the Toyota Glanza , here’s the backstory on why it came into existence. Back in 2017, Toyota and Suzuki confirmed a partnership ‘to jointly contribute to resolution of social issues and achievement of sound and sustainable development of an automobile-based society’ . As per this understanding, it was decided that Suzuki will produce electric vehicles for the Indian market with technical support from Toyota. Effectively, Suzuki will be supplying various models like the Baleno, Vitara Brezza, Ciaz and Ertiga from its line-up to Toyota, who will manufacture and supply the Corolla Altis to Maruti Suzuki. Needless to say, both manufacturers will be rebadging the aforementioned cars along with making suitable changes to suit their respective brand images in the market. And the first-ever car to come out of this agreement is the Toyota Glanza . The model name comes from the German word ‘Glanz’ which literally translates to shine. While styling and features remain unchanged largely, Toyota is offering a better ownership experience in the Glanza. How? Let’s find out.
