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

I recently had to pass on my 2018 Jazz CVT to an employee, as his 12 year old Zen Estillo gave up and is beyond reasonable repairs.
After reading up for a few days, the choice is between Baleno and Glanza for their top end CVT versions. I am more inclined towards the Glanza as the Toyota service centre is 1 lane beyond my office and as someone mentioned above, too many Balenos are on road to choke up the service efficiency. The Ex showroom price for both seem to be similar and it seems the warranty ( with extension) is better on the Glanza.
I have yet to check price offers on the Glanza, however wanted an opinion if I should wait for the New Jazz too . I already have 2 more Honda CVT's and kind of averse to the New Jazz ( more so after using a Jazz), but if it is going to be better than the Glanza ( technically and feature set wise), I have no hang-ups against Honda.

Hi, will Toyota make an issue with warranty as you've put after market dampers? This looks like a must fitted stuff for our Indian roads.

Wow!
Coupled with the Yoko Earth 1 -205/55/16 tyres which we fitted immediately after taking delivery on Dad's Glanza V AT there is no more fear of the evil Bangalore speedbreakers and potholes and craters!
Fitted at Tyre Empire HSR - Rs 7800/-

I would go with Baleno, simply because you never know how long this JV will last. If it loses steam in 2-3 years and stops, the car's resale would fall and servicing will be an issue.

Also Toyota badging doesn't make it a Toyota product, so it's not that the car will last longer than a Baleno.

Voted for Glanza. If I were in the market for a hatch, I would choose neither. If I am forced to pick between the two I would go with Glanza due to slightly lesser price, better warranty and customer friendly service centres.
