AMT Gearbox

Unlike before, the new Toyota Glanza is now offered with an AMT gearbox which has now replaced the CVT gearbox. While the AMT version is a lot more affordable, it is nowhere as smooth and refined as the CVT gearbox. Rivals like the I20 and the Altroz offer a quicker and smoother transmission.
