Christened as Toyota Glanza, the base variant of the car is priced at Rs 7.22 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The deliveries for the premium hatchback will commence from next week onwards. The hatchback is offered in two trim levels – G and V, which include automatic and manual transmission.

The G trim gets a 1.2-litre K12N petrol engine with a mild-hybrid motor, which is a BS6 compliant engine that can make 89 bhp and 113 Nm of power figures.
