Toyota Glanza, Urban Cruiser Crossed 1 Lakh Sales Mark In India
Toyota Kirloskar Motors has announced that its premium Glanza hatchback and Urban Cruiser sub-4 meter SUV, together have crossed the one lakh sales milestone in the country. Out of these 1 lakh units, the Glanza clocked 65,000 units, while the rest were in the name of Urban Cruiser.
