Besides the CNG badging on the tailgate, the Toyota Glanza CNG retains the same exterior design as its petrol-powered version. Toyota has fitted the 55-litre CNG tank in the boot which in turn robs storage capacity when compared to its petrol-powered version. The Glanza CNG's dual tone interior also sees no changes, consisting of the same switchgear and steering wheel as the Baleno.
The Glanza CNG in its G trim gets equipment like LED projector headlamps, 16-inch alloys, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, voice assistant, connected car tech with OTA updates, start/stop button, and six airbags.
