The Toyota Glanza will be initially launched in 2 trim levels, both of which based on the top-end versions of the Baleno. The Glanza model will be priced higher than the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and will be launched as a premium model. It is expected that the new model will come with a 3 year or 1 lakh km warranty as standard.
