Comparison Review: Maruti Suzuki Baleno VS Toyota Glanza

Ride Quality 

Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Since the engine has very little noise and gear shifting moves easily, you can surely have a good driving experience from the new Baleno compare to other models, but the seats may not be so comfortable for long drive because it is a little bit itchy.

Toyota Glanza

Like the Baleno, the new Toyota Glanza' s ride and handling quality are quite well. The controls are light but the steering misses adequate self-centring, which takes time to get used to.

 

On-Road Price in New Delhi (some india cities prices are lower than this)

●Maruti Suzuki Baleno On-Road Price:

Maruti Suzuki Baleno lists a new price range from ₹6.14 Lakhs to ₹9.94 Lakhs in india. The price of Petrol variant for a new Baleno is from ₹6.14 Lakhs to ₹9.94 Lakhs compare to the price of Diesel variant for Baleno varies from ₹7.64 Lakhs to ₹9.87 Lakhs.

●Toyota Glanza On-Road Price:

Toyota Glanza launches a new price range in india from ₹ 7.88 Lakhs to ₹ 9.99 Lakhs and there are only two available variants: Petrol (₹ 7.88 Lakhs - ₹ 9.99 Lakhs) and Hybrid (₹ 8.14 Lakhs).

The Baleno' s price range fluctuate a little bit more compare to the Toyota Glanza due to different variants. But generally, the price of the new Glanza is slightly higher than the new Baleno.

 

Safety 

●Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Let' s take a look at the safety features on the Baleno: 2 Airbags (Driver & Co-Driver), Seat Belt Warning, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Engine immobilizer, Central Locking, and Speed Sensing Door Lock. Besides, in the crash test organized by EURONCAP, the Baleno scored a rating of 3-stars out of 5, which is an acceptable performance.

●Toyota Glanza

Although the new Toyota Glanza hasn' t been through the crash test yet, it is quite well loaded in the safety features: 2 Airbags (Driver & Co-Driver), Middle rear three-point seatbelt, Child Seat Anchor Points, Seat Belt Warning, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Engine immobilizer, Central Locking, Speed Sensing Door Lock, and Child Safety Lock.

Toyota Glanza is a little bit better loaded in the safety features compare to the Baleno. Compares with the new Baleno, the new Glanza would be slightly safer, but both of these two hatchbacks cars are safety-reliable.

 

Exterior 

●Maruti Suzuki Baleno

●Toyota Glanza

Here comes to a very interesting part, the exterior. As you can see from the picture, these two new hatchbacks cars look extremely like each other. I can hardly tell any differences except the logo and the grille. At the first glimpse, I thought they were the same. Although the Baleno variants were launched earlier compare to the Glanza, we can' t say the Glanza is the copy of the Baleno. Because Suzuki and Toyota have reached an agreement to share their models with each other. So, simply speaking, Suzuki is now building the Glanza variants for Toyota, and Toyota is providing them with the logos to put in the Baleno. On the other hand, Toyota is also suppling the Corolla to Suzuki.

In general, these two cars are the same in design and style, except the grille and the logo. Both of them share the same fresh look.

 

Interior Comparison

●Maruti Suzuki Baleno interior

●Toyota Glanza interior

As I mentioned above, the Glanza is actually “built” by the Suzuki india, so there won' t be any big differences between them. No matter which one you bought, you still got the same all-black, classic, typical cabin with blue contrast for the interior.

 

Petrol & diesel mileage Comparison

●Maruti Suzuki Baleno petrol & diesel mileage

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno offers both petrol and diesel version for the buyers. And it officially claims the petrol mileage is from 19.56 to 21.1 kmpl and the diesel mileage is 27.39 kmpl.

●Toyota Glanza petrol & Hybrid mileage

The Toyota Glanza petrol variant mileage is from 19.56 to 21.01 kmpl, and the hybrid (petrol + electric) version has a mileage of 23.87 kmpl.

From the statistics above we can see that the Baleno is doing better in the mileage compare to the Glanza, but the Glanza is more environmental-friendly since it provides a hybrid version.

Generally, there are also not any differences in the specifications & features, almost the same parameters, except the top edition of the Baleno is more powerful and the hybrid edition of the Glanza is more environmental-friendly.

Warranty:

Currently, the warranty date, warranty time and warranty distance are not released by both brands in india.

Conclusion:

Whether you buy a Baleno or a Glanza wouldn' t cause many differences. Like I said, they are nearly the same, but considering the budget or the value of money, if you are holding a budget under ₹8 Lakhs, go for the Toyota Glanza, if you are holding a budget over ₹8 Lakhs, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno is a better option, just go buy it.
