The Toyota Crown sedan will launch later this year, with the parent brand quietly announcing more details about this configuration.
Unlike previously released versions, the Toyota Crown sedan has its own design with a “hammer head” nose like the bZ4X electric SUV. The centerpiece of this area is a massive trapezoidal heatsink using vertical slats. The long bonnet leads to a large angled windshield and the curved roofline blends together quite harmoniously.
Except for the bottom edge of the car door, the rest is made quite flat. The rear of the car looks quite simple, the main highlight of which is the thin light bar which emphasizes the width of the car.
The dimensions of the Toyota Crown sedan are announced as 5,030 mm long, 1,890 mm wide and 1,470 mm high, with a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. The frame is large enough to provide comfortable leg room for passengers and makes the sedan the largest in the Crown lineup.
Based on the published photos, the interior of the car is not much different from the Crown SUV and Crown Sport. The most obvious difference between the above two versions and the sedan is the center console area, which has a cup holder with lid. The wood paneling of the sedan also helps in making the cabin area rich in highlights. There are still two 12.3-inch copper screens in front of and beside the driver on the dashboard.
In the transmission segment, the Toyota Crown sedan is quite different from its two predecessors with two hybrid versions and FCEV versions. The FCEV configuration runs on hydrogen fuel cells and is likely to share the rear axle drive motor with the Toyota Mirai with a capacity of 182 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque.
There is no information about the hybrid version, but it will probably be derived from the Crown Sport with 2 electric motors paired with a 2.5L engine for a total of 231 horsepower. However, this system on the Sport version comes with 2-wheel drive, while the sedan version has only rear-wheel drive.
