1. Front Grille
The biggest change in the updated Toyota Glanza is the front grille used in it, which is different from the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Baleno. The new front grille gives the car a unique front end styling. The Toyota hatchback gets a slim and simple grille design with a single strip of chrome. On the other hand, the grille has been installed in the Baleno with a hexagonal pattern.
2. Front Bumper
The front bumper of the Toyota Glanza gets sportier looking air dams and black cladding that extends from the top of the air dam to the chin. On the other hand, the air dam in the bumper of the Maruti Baleno features horizontal slats that connect to the fog lamp housings at either end of the front bumper. The bumper of the Baleno feels more premium than sporty.
The headlight design of both the Maruti Baleno and Toyota Glanza seems to be the same, but the light signature is different for both. While the top-spec Maruti Baleno gets three-part LED daytime running lights, the Toyota Glanza gets L-shaped LED DRLs.
4. Alloy wheels
Another exterior difference between these two hatchbacks is the design of their alloy wheels. Though both the hatchbacks are fitted with 16-inch wheels, both get different patterns. The Glanza gets 4-split-spoke wheels, while the Baleno gets a 5-split-spoke wheel design.
5. Interior Color Theme
The new Toyota Glanza’s dashboard design and features are similar to those of the Maruti Baleno. However, there is a slight difference in their colors. While the Maruti Baleno hatchback gets the blue color addition to the mostly black cabin, the Toyota Glanza gets beige and black colours.
6. Standard Warranty Package
Although we cannot call it the difference between the cars, as it is the difference being offered by the companies. Here Toyota is offering the Glanza with a standard 3 year/1 lakh km warranty, while the Maruti Baleno is being offered with a 2 year/40,000 km warranty.
Talking about the price of these two cars, there is not much difference between them. While the new Maruti Baleno is currently priced at Rs 6.35 lakh to Rs 9.49 lakh (ex-showroom), the new Toyota Glanza has been priced from Rs 6.39 lakh to Rs 9.69 lakh (ex-showroom).
