To mark the popularity gained by Glanza amongst customers nationwide and further add to the festive cheer, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) introduced the new entry-level variant G MT (manual) to expand the Toyota Glanza family. The Toyota Glanza has received an encouraging response from the young ‘First Time Toyota Buyers’. The company has sold over 11,000 units of the Glanza, since its launch in India in the month of June.

Further enhancing customer delight, the company is also offering superior warranty of 3 year/100K kms extended up to 5 year/220K kms along with the ‘Toyota ownership’ experience, Q-Service app utilization and Toyota Connect facilities, apart from attractive finance schemes.
