Wow, good catch! Pretty shady of them to do that. I guess the "features shown may not be what you get" disclaimer applies here more than ever so no one complains to the Advertising Standards Council.

If someone buy this car, apart from Toyota badge, what else he will get? I am not sure.

This strategy is really rubbish IMHO and going to fail miserably. Maruti has certain set of buyers who are price sensitive and more inclined towards economy. With Toyota in picture I am not sure how they are going to manage this. Already car sharing between Renault & Nissan has failed badly. Not sure why Maruti agreed to this as they are doing really good.

I just did and looks like you may be right.

The first number is 1 going by the last pic in volkman10's post.

Though the screenshot is blurry (even with 1080p), the number looks like 1487, 1482, 1462 and 1467. Ran all the numbers on Vahan app and 1467 is a Fire Red Baleno

Hilarious catch!

Even if you are wrong with the actual number, MH 47W 1xxx series seem to be dating back to June 2017 vehicle registrations.

It's a pre-facelift Baleno then?

LOL, Is Glanza same as old-version Baleno that was sold in 2017?! If true, then it is not just badge-engineering, it's going back in time and selling old version engineering

Edit: IIRC, previous Fire red was discontinued in favour of new Phoenix red with the new facelift. If this number is correct, then they have used a car that is no longer sold and that too in a discontinued color

I look forward to how the RTO interprets this. My Jetta is a Skoda Jetta since it is manufactured by Skoda for VW

This might be a Maruti Glanza in the RC book until production actually gets transferred to Bidadi!

One car has a MH registration and one has a GA registration. Goa has not yet introduced HSRP's so they are probably fake HSRPs.

Can't help but add to this discussion on Toyota's rebadging move..which is a joke in my opinion.

Toyota is intending to provide a 3 year 100000km warranty Vs Suzuki 2 year 40000km and position it as a premium product. Unless your a taxi driver I don't see most clocking 1L Kms in 3 years. So beats the purpose of paying a premium.

Also can customers go to MASS to service a Glanza..

From what I understand, this is all part of Toyota's global strategy to drive business. 'Collaboration'.

I'm sure most of us are reading about the 'Supra' controversy. Here is a snippet from a Top gear article..

'Underneath the Supra shares a platform, running gear, engine, gearbox and large chunks of the interior with the latest BMW Z4. Another example of Toyota partnering with other marques to make the economics work (see also GT86/Subaru BRZ, and Aygo/Peugeot 108/Citroen C1).'

Is this first time in India that a car from one brand can be converted to another brand by just buying decals and front grill of a brand of your choice. Glanza can also be added to our weird and wacky mods job thread.

I'm not sure how you mention it as a 'Controversy'?

There's much background behind the birth of Toyota GT 86/Subaru BRZ and Toyota Supra/BMW Z4.

I don't want to take the thread but for anyone who's interested, the following links would clarify the 10,000,000,000 miles difference between Toyota's partnership with Subaru and BMW Vs. the current one with Maruti Suzuki for the Baleno.

Yup maybe not so much a controversy but what I think the essence of what everyone is saying is that a Toyota isn't a Toyota a if its not made by Toyota and in someways that connects to the Baleno>Glanza story.. But agreed lets not go off-topic.

The only thing caught my attention in the video is the camera truck. It looks like a Skoda Octavia Mk1 modified for the purpose.

Can Maruti dealers order cars from Toyota and change the grill, decals and logos in their backyard to reduce the waiting period? Toyota would be even happy to just assemble the cars and supply it to Maruti dealers in South India.
