Toyota Kirloskar Motor has announced that sales of the Urban Cruiser and the Glanza models have cumulatively crossed the one lakh mark. The Toyota Glanza was launched in June 2019 while the Toyota Urban Cruiser arrived in September 2020. Both models are essentially the rebadged Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, as part of the Suzuki-Toyota partnership. The company further revealed that the Glanza clocked over 65,000 units while over 35,000 units of the Urban Cruiser were sold since the launch.
The Glanza and Urban Cruiser cater to about 66 per cent of first time Toyota buyers, the company revealed, especially in Tier II & III markets. The models have helped Toyota India target younger customers at lower price points when compared to its more expensive models like the Innova Crysta and the Fortuner. The company also offers its own warranty and service packages for hassle-free ownership.
Commenting on the success of Glanza and Urban Cruiser, Atul Sood, Associate Vice President, Sales, and Strategic Marketing, TKM, said, “Toyota takes great pride in its unrelenting efforts to ensure the highest customer satisfaction, and this milestone is a testament to the best ownership experience, exceptional sales and after-sales services, as well as peace of mind that is offered to every single Toyota customer.
