As a SUV major, finding a hatchback in Toyota’s line-up is quite a weird feeling. But as part of its JV with Maruti Suzuki, the brand sells a rebadged version of the Maruti Baleno in the country. Christened the Glanza, this Toyota car model features subtle design changes over its sibling along with new Toyota badges all around. Priced at Rs 6.59 lakh (ex-showroom), this is the cheapest model in the company’s line-up and a good starting point to experience the Toyota reliability and exceptional service network and quality.
