Background and Precautions

This recall is specifically targeted at the previous generation of the Glanza, not the current models available for sale. It's noteworthy that the Glanza shares its platform with the Maruti Baleno, which was also subject to a recent recall for the same fuel pump issue, as both cars are manufactured at the Maruti Suzuki plant.

Upcoming Launch: Toyota Taisor

In related news, Toyota is gearing up for the launch of the Taisor in India, a rebadged version of the Maruti Fronx. The Taisor is expected to feature distinct styling elements to align with Toyota’s design language including a new grille, redesigned LED DRLs, headlights, bumpers, and alloy wheels. It will also offer unique color options different from its Maruti counterpart.

The interior of the Taisor is anticipated to mirror that of the Fronx, with possible variations in color themes and branding. Feature-wise, both vehicles are expected to be similar. Under the hood, the Taisor will likely be powered by the same engine options as the Fronx, including a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 1.0-liter turbo petrol engine.

Toyota's proactive approach to addressing the fuel pump motor issue underscores its commitment to customer safety and vehicle reliability. As the company moves forward with its new launch it continues to focus on delivering quality and innovation in its vehicle lineup.
