Looks like we finally have confirmation that the Toyota-badged Baleno will be called "Glanza". A teaser for the same has just been released, showing the Glanza's rear right fender, which confirms same alloy wheels as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno for the model, but with Toyota badging. 

Autocar India recently reported that the Glanza will be sold in two variants upon launch. It will come with a 1.2-litre petrol engine mated to either a 5-speed manual or CVT, mostly on the top-spec trim.

Images of the new Toyota Glanza have been leaked before the premium hatchback's launch in June 2019. From these images, the only changes made to the car are the grille and the new Toyota badging around the back.

Glanza is for people who say Maruti build quality is not upto the mark :lol:
Jokes aside, Badge engineering hasn’t really worked in India. At least till now. This would be interesting to see as till now both companies who partnered had low sales individually. Here it is the opposite. This is more of a test for Toyota than Maruti as later is a constant 50%+ market share leader. 
I particularly like the fact that both cars are exactly the same except badging (true badge engineering). This would retain the qualities of the top selling car no matter from where it retails. One would always consider it to be Baleno.
