Under the Toyota-Suzuki partnership, TKM (Toyota Kirloskar Motors) also announced that the brand will be launching the Cool-New Glanza in India.

New reports suggest that the front fascia of the cool new Glanza will be quite different from the Baleno. According to spy shots, the new Glanza will offer a different radiator grille and front bumper than the Baleno. The radiator grille on the Glanza appears to be a wide chrome band connecting the headlights. The front bumper comes with features such as black cladding that make the hatchback look aggressive. The fog light housings also come with new styling and feature a thin chrome strip giving a premium look to the car.

On the rear, the Glanza appears to be similar to the Baleno but gets a new Toyota badge.

The brand is likely to offer a 9-inch Smartplay Pro+ infotainment system, heads-up-display, automatic climate control, 360-degree camera and more
