Toyota Glanza Sales In September 2019: Second Best-Selling Model From Brand With 2,773 Units

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 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.

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 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.
