In India, Toyota has risen prices for almost all of its products. The cost increase for the Yaris, Innova Crysta, and Fortuner is a result of the revised BS6 powertrains. The Glanza hatchback was launched with BS6 petrol engines but its price increase could be part of carmakers’ annual price hike as a means to cover rising input costs.
The Glanza only offers petrol. The 1.2-liter engine is available with the option of a manual gearbox and a CVT. The price hike ranges from Rs 3000 to Rs 6000 for these variants. The Glanza ‘s mild-hybrid model has gone dearer with Rs 26,000. The Glanza continues to get apps such as tilt and telescopic steering shift, auto AC, keyless entry and a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen interface.
The Yaris gets a 1.5-liter BS6-compliant petrol engine with a 107PS and 140Nm performance. It still gets the choice of an automatic 6-speed manual and a seven-step CVT. Toyota offers all variants, both manual and automatic transmission choices. The price rise for the Yaris sedan renders the regular J and G models by Rs 1.68 lakh and Rs 1.2 lakh more costly, respectively.
By contrast, the J Optional and G Optional variants have received only a hike of Rs 10,000 and Rs 12,000 respectively. The V Optional variant gets the smallest hike of just Rs 1,000. The top-spec VX manual variant has become lowered by Rs 10,000 while the CVT option costs Rs 12,000 more than before. While the entry-level and top-end prices for the Yaris 2020 have not changed much, the mid-spec variant has not changed much.
