Toyota Glanza CNG: Everything you need to know
Powering the Toyota Glanza CNG is the same 1.2-litre K Series engine that is found in the petrol lineup. Maruti Suzuki Baleno is powered by this unit as well. In a CNG configuration, this engine produces a maximum power output of 77hp and 98.5Nm peak torque. In comparison, the petrol unit generates a maximum power of 90hp and 113Nm torque. Toyota claims a fuel efficiency of 30.61km/kg on the Glanza CNG.
There aren’t any cosmetic changes on the Glanza CNG except the CNG branding on the tailgate. However, the CNG version weighs 48kg more than the petrol variant. With a 55-litre CNG tank in the boot, the storage capacity is limited as well.
The Toyota Glanza CNG will be equipped with the same features and instruments as its petrol-fuelled sibling. This includes a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a 360-degree camera, cruise control, a Heads-Up display and more. It will also come with Toyota’s i-Connected platform, which offers additional connected car tech options like remote access and control, find my car, tow alert, geo-fencing, and more. Safety features include six airbags, ABS with EBD, a speed alert system, an automatic door lock, parking sensors, hill assist, and more.
