Who knows, Toyota may in fact surprise us. There is atleast one, rather unappreciated, difference between Glanza and Baleno - Glanza comes with a dual rate Brake Assist, which none of the cars in the Suzuki stable have. Having experienced it, I would insist this is one must have safety feature in any car, just like ABS and Airbags. Which makes you think, why did Toyota even bother? They could have added a couple of LEDs instead, or a 8" ICE, and it would've been the talking point about Glanza. Why add a safety unit that no one in the prospective client list would even notice?

Toyota will launch its second Maruti Suzuki-based product in India in the coming months. Part of its technical and product sharing joint venture with Maruti, the new car will be based on the Vitara Brezza and is likely to be called ‘Urban Cruiser’.

What? I really cannot believe that a company that did not bother to even change something as simple as an alloy wheel, to have gone and done a mechanical change like this. And also, there is no special mention about this anywhere in the Toytota website.

So, just like how "Brezza" diluted and took advantage of the "Vitara" badge, this "Urban Cruiser" is supposed to dilute and make use of the "Land Cruiser" badge.

True. Not prominently, but you will find it mentioned under Safety specs. Clearly, it must be an addition in the Suzuki plant itself. If I am not mistaken, the Glanzas go directly from the Suzuki plant to the dealer yards. So clearly Toyota must've specifically asked for it. You may have noticed another interesting development --- the Dzire AMT has upped the default with ESP, TCS and Hill Hold. Yup!! Which could only mean that their other pricier models including Baleno/Glanza should get them in the next iteration. I reckon there is reason to look forward to the Urban Cruizer!!

Sorry to inform you but from 2019 update on Baleno, it too has Brake assist as standard same as Glanza.

There is no additional feature enabled exclusively for Toyota.

The press release mentioned it however Nexa website doesn't.

This was added in 2019 after which Toyota got the same version as Glanza.
