Toyota India has been facing the effects of the auto industry slowdown, since the start of the year. The company registered an overall decline of 17% in the month of September 2019. The company recently introduced the Glanza premium hatchback in the Indian market.
The Glanza hatchback is the result of a partnership agreement between Toyota and Suzuki for the Indian market. The Toyota Glanza is essentially a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno — the best selling premium hatchback in the country.
The Toyota Glanza sales in India has been doing well in the Indian market. The company has been registering month-on-month growth, with the hatchback registering 2,773 units in the previous month. This is a 19.42% growth from August 2019 when it recorded 2,322 units of sales.
The steady increase in Glanza sales in the market has already positioned it as the second best-selling car from the Japanese brand in the Indian market. The Glanza is positioned in second place on the model-wise sales list, just below the Innova Crysta MPV.
The Toyota Innova Crysta, on the other hand, has registered 4,225 units of sales in the previous month. This is a year-on-year decline of close to 35% in the market, from 6,477 units in September 2018.

The popular MPV offering has also registered a monthly decline in sales of around 12% from4,796 units in August 2019. The Toyota Innova Crysta also recently lost out to the newly-launched Renault Triber in terms of monthly sales — here are the top-selling MPVs in the Indian market.
At the current trend, the Toyota Glanza could soon overtake the Innova Crysta as well. The MPV, however, is expected to be updated soon to comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms. This might just allow it to stay ahead of the Glanza in sales.
The Glanza is already available with a BS-VI compliant petrol engine borrowed from the Maruti Baleno hatchback. The 1.2-litre engine also comes with a mild-hybrid technology, producing a max power output of 82bhp and 113Nm of torque; mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Toyota also offers the Glanza with the optional CVT transmission as well.
Apart from the Toyota Glanza, the table also showcases the dispatch of 2 units of the yet-to-launch Vellfire MPV. The new Toyota Vellfire is scheduled to go on sale in India very soon and will be positioned above the Innova Crysta in the MPV segment. The Vellfire is already said to have started arriving at dealerships.
Thoughts On The Toyota Glanza Sales In September 2019
The Toyota Glanza has been received surprisingly well in the Indian market. Glanza sales have been improving month-on-month.
The Glanza has already overtaken rivals such as the Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz in the Indian premium hatchback segment. However, the Hyundai Elite i20 and Maruti Baleno are still far ahead with over 10,000 monthly sales.
