Toyota has pulled the curtain on an all-new crown. What does it look like? The New Crown is no longer just one model, but a whole model family!
after, after Top limousine horn The Crown is the highest-ranking model in Toyota’s selection ranking. The crown first appeared in 1955 and was also delivered in our country in the distant past. Fifteenth generation crown – which Toyota now sells primarily in its home country of Japan – has always been a sedan, but that changes with the introduction of the all-new Crown. Toyota turns the crown into a complete model family! Recently, AutoWeek was able to offer you a different kind of new crown Already on the patent image to present. Some newcomers already let Toyota in December in draft form to see.
Toyota’s new crown will have four body styles (photos 22-25). The new crown is the first to be launched in Japan and the United States, among other countries, and the latter is particularly striking, because the model has not been delivered there for some time. Toyota is the first to talk about the “Crown Crossover”. This is also a sedan, but it stands high on its legs in style Citroen C5X, although the latter is of course a throwback because the rear window stops with a flap. There will also be a new Crown sedan (Photos 31-36), but it doesn’t stop there. The Crown Estate (Images 37 to 41) and Crown Sport (Images 26-30) will be located next to the Crown Crossover and Crown Sedan. It’s similar to an SUV, in that the property is larger and has a more traditional SUV shape than the aerodynamically designed Crown Sport.
As mentioned, the Crown Crossover has taken off. Like the rest of the Crown family, the car is on Toyota’s GA-K platform, a base also under the Camry, Avalon, RAV4 and Highlander. The Crown Crossover is approximately 10 cm taller than the Camry. So there is no E-TNGA basis for the crown and this of course indicates that there will be no all-electric variant. The Crown family is available with two hybrid engines. There will be a hybrid with a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, and a system power of about 340 hp. This version has an electric motor on the front axle and a small electric motor on the rear axle making it a four-wheel drive. There’s also a 2.5 atmospheric four-cylinder powertrain. There are two all-wheel drive systems: E-Four AWD and E-Four Advanced AWD. With the latter, the rear axle only intervenes if the grip is threatened with disappearance. The latter is reserved for the Crown with a 340-horsepower engine capable of sending up to 80 percent of the power to the rear wheels.
Unlike the body, the interior looks understated. With a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen on which the new software runs, among other things, it looks modern, but is remarkably quiet and frill-free. Very refreshing these days. Toyota boasts a quiet atmosphere in the interior and promises, among other things, high-quality sound insulation.
At the moment, it does not appear that the new Toyota Crown family will also be launched in Europe. A missed opportunity?
