Default Re: Maruti Baleno vs Toyota Glanza - Which would you buy?

2 - Most Marutis tend to start rattling later in their life, an aspect that I have experienced with a Baleno owned by a friend as well. This is a very 'un-toyota' thing to happen
3 - If I still had to choose - it would probably be a Nexa, with a heavy discount which I would use to buy extended warranty. If not possible then a toy-yoda dealer it is.
1 - Absolutely right. While on the topic of dicussion on safety, the Etios which I believe is what the Glanza replaces has 3 pointed seat belts for every passenger but the Glanza doesn't (obvious as it is just a rebadged Baleno). That lap belt in the middle seat just looks horrible. This makes the Glanza the only Toyota in its current portfolio that doesn't have 3 pointed seat belts for every passenger. Not a good move Toyota.
2 - Agree here as well and the irony is in the fact that the original baleno of the 2000s (the sleek sedan) is the only car which actually felt solidly put together in the Maruti Suzuki stable.
3 - Good point. Although for people who wish to get a slice of the venerable "T" badge for Maruti money, it still sounds like a good deal (economically).

I would also go with NOTA.
