Elegant, sporty appearance with luxury interior

The new Crown was a sporty look, combined with sophisticated elegance, the new Crown was designed with a proportional low slung nose, the hallmark of front-engine rear-wheel-drive cars, and a sleek, elegant profile that flows smoothly from the roof to the trunk, featuring six side windows. The RS Grades are equipped with LED sequential turn signals (front and rear) that broadly illuminate a wide periphery, and feature a mesh front grille, front bottom trim design that highlights the low center of gravity and delivers a wider profile, side skirts that contribute to enhanced control stability, special 18-inch aluminum wheels, four exhaust tail pipes, rear spoiler, and black door frames to further promote the sporty appearance. The Crown RS Grades is still received special items are available to enhance driving performance. RS Grades come with 5-spoke 18-inch aluminum wheels and tires as standard, and special front stabilizers increase roll rigidity.



  By using linear-solenoid-type AVS, appropriate damping force is instantly generated to suppress unnecessary movement and contribute to advanced driving performance even if a large input is applied. Due to the installation of the rear spoiler, down force is secured and high speed stability is enhanced. The 2.0-liter turbo Crown is also equipped with rear performance damper and rear floor brace for excellent steering response and reduced vibration on bumpy road surfaces. A moderately sized cockpit and spacious interior creates a comfortable space that allows the driver to focus on driving. The simple yet fastidiously designed high-quality interior and cutting-edge devices create a point of distinction while attaining a sophisticated, modern atmosphere. To add further appeal, rich textures and impeccable design are adopted throughout, enlivening the senses and bringing texture, movement, sound, and attractiveness to the fore.

The powertrain is positioned lower to achieve a low center of gravity, and aluminum hood fenders and optimized distribution of weight between the front and rear deliver outstanding inertia specifications. A front high mount multi-link suspension and rear multi-link suspension, optimized steering rigidity, use of aluminum die casted front suspension tower, and application of a significantly greater amount of structural adhesive further enhances body rigidity to realize responsive handling and a stable, comfortable ride.

New Crown with three drivetrain

The new Crown with available the 2.0 liter direct-injection turbo engine, the only conventional gasoline engine. The renewed model generation has already got the Drive Mode Select, which allows drivers to select the drive mode with the press of a button, is standard in all new Crowns. RS Grades offer a Custom Mode that allows drivers to select their preferred combination of powertrain, chassis, and air conditioning system.




  The Crown is also available with two hybrid drives. The 2.5-liter hybrid Crown adopts a hybrid system mounted with the TNGA 2.5-liter Dynamic Force Engine that achieves both great thermal efficiency and high output. The vehicle delivers exceptional driving performance and 24.0 km/liter*6 fuel efficiency (under the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism's JC08 test cycle). And the other is the stronger hybrid system, which already uses the 3.5 liter V6 engine, the Multi-stage hybrid drive. The 3.5-liter Crown is now the first Toyota brand car equipped with the Multi-stage Hybrid System. The Multi-stage Hybrid System is a mechanism that employs a hybrid system combined with stepped gears to control the output of both the 3.5-liter V-6 engine and the drive motor to provide strong driving force from low speeds to achieve powerful performance. By selecting an operating point for high system efficiency from the low-speed range to the high-speed range and, thus, expanding the range of BEV driving, the system achieves both an emotional driving experience and highly fuel-efficient, pleasant cruise.

Adjustments in engine rotations faithfully in line with the intentions of the driver and highly responsive motor assist are made possible by 10-gear-change control regardless of the driving situation, creating a direct acceleration sensation perfectly linked to pedal operation. The 2.0-liter Crown adopts a 2.0-liter whose output is enhanced by the increase of intake and exhaust port efficiency. High response is possible from low-rpm, while high torque is secured in the entire range.

Toyota security at a high level

The second-generation preventive safety package Toyota Safety Sense comes as standard in all Crown models. Toyota Safety Sense includes. A pre-collision safety system that detects pedestrians (day and night) and bikes (day) to support collision prevention and mitigate damage. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with full-speed range that supports driving behind the car in front. Advanced driving assistance technology Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) that supports steering so cars remain centered in the same lane during use of Radar Cruise Control.



  Numerous of leading support systems for the new Crown


Automatic High Beam (AHB) that changes between high beam and low beam headlights automatically. Adaptive High Beam System (AHS) that irradiates high beams without blinding preceding or oncoming cars. Road Sign Assist (RSA) that displays road signs recognized by the camera on the display so drivers do not miss road signs and drive safely. Stationary objects such as walls and pillars, and vehicle and pedestrian traffic pose safety challenges in parking lots. 



The full range of colors


Therefore, the new Crown is equipped with low-speed braking support systems. In addition to Intelligent Clearance Sonar and Rear Cross Traffic Auto Brake, the new Crown is also the first Toyota brand car mounted with rear pedestrian support brake, which detects pedestrians using a rear camera, and in the case of a possible collision, helps to minimizes damage by activating alerts and brake control.
