Both models are essentially the rebadged Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, as part of the Suzuki-Toyota partnership. The company further revealed that the Glanza clocked over 65,000 units while over 35,000 units of the Urban Cruiser were sold since the launch.

The models have helped Toyota India target younger customers at lower price points when compared to its more expensive models like the Innova Crysta and the Fortuner. The company also offers its own warranty and service packages for hassle-free ownership.

The Glanza and the Urban Cruiser have witnessed phenomenal success over the years, with the Glanza registering more than 25 per cent growth when compared to its sales in 2020. Thanks to both these models that have helped us strike a defined balance to reach young aspiring customers, who desire to own a Toyota early in their lives."
