The new Toyota Glanza CNG is powered by a 1.2-litre K-Series engine with 76bhp and a five-speed manual transmission. Moreover, it generates a peak torque of 98.5Nm.
Toyota has launched the CNG-powered Glanza, with prices beginning at ₹8.43 lakh for the S trim and going up to ₹9.46 lakh for the G trim. Both the figures are ex-showroom. The Urban Cruiser Hyryder CNG will also be shortly introduced in India, according to the firm. Online reservation for the hatchback has also commenced online for a token amount of ₹11,000.
The Glanza CNG costs ₹95,000 more than its petrol-powered predecessor. It is the first Toyota model and the second high-end hatchback in its class with a factory-installed CNG kit. The Glanza CNG will only be available in S and G trims, unlike the petrol-powered Glanza, which is available in E, S, G, and V trims.
The ARAI-certified mileage of the Glanza E-CNG is 30.61km/kg. The new Toyota Glanza CNG is powered by a 1.2-litre K-Series engine with 76bhp and a five-speed manual transmission. Moreover, it generates a peak torque of 98.5Nm.
With the exception of the CNG badging on the tailgate, the Toyota Glanza CNG's exterior is identical to that of the petrol-powered model. Toyota has included a 55-litre CNG tank in the trunk, which reduces storage space in comparison to its petrol-powered counterpart. The Glanza CNG's dual-tone interior is intact and has the same switchgear and steering wheel as those of the Baleno.
In addition to a 7.0-inch touchscreen, connected car technology with OTA updates, voice assistant, six airbags, and a start/stop button, the Glanza CNG's G trim is equipped with LED projector headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, and other features.
The Glanza CNG faces competition from the recently launched Baleno CNG, which has a starting price of ₹8.28 lakh (ex-showroom). Further, it also competes with other hatchbacks without a CNG option, such as the Tata Altroz.
