Toyota India is gearing up to introduce the CNG version of the Glanza in the country. It’s worth mentioning that the Maruti Suzuki Baleno CNG was recently launched in India and both these cars share mechanicals and features with each other. The bookings for the 2022 Toyota Glanza CNG are now unofficially open at select dealerships across the country.
While Maruti Suzuki calls its CNG cars S-CNG, Toyota is likely to brand them as e-CNG models. The Toyota Glanza will be the first car from the house of this Japanese carmaker in India to run on CNG. A few weeks ago, the specifications, variants, and other details of the upcoming Toyota Glanza CNG leaked online.
Powering the new 2022 Toyota Glanza will be a 1.2-litre K-series Dual Jet, Dual VVT petrol engine with a start/stop system. While it churns out 88.5 bhp in the petrol-only model, the bi-fuel CNG version will churn out 77 bhp as per the leaked ARAI document. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox only and it might deliver a mileage of around 30 km/kg.
