Finally, Toyota has unveiled the 2023 Toyota Crown, which will replace the 15th generation model that debuted in 2018. The new crown, on the other hand, appears completely different from the previous model generation. it is available in four body styles and three model trim levels. The new Crown, now in its 16th generation, is a crossover rather than a conservative large sedan like the type it replaces. It has a sedan and an SUV body style, and a hybrid powertrain is standard on all models in the lineup. The interior is spacious, premium, and packed with modern technology.
2023 Toyota Crown Exterior
The 2023 Crown’s body is shaped like a fastback sedan, but the cladding around the wheel cutouts and lower body gives it some SUV-like characteristics. Nothing about it is trail-ready; in terms of height and clearance off the ground, it is purely a car. From the beautifully sculpted sides, the design is almost lovely, but the lofty roof is a little unsettling. The wide grille on the nose, on the other hand, has a slight overbite and was influenced by the look of the Toyota Venza. Coincidentally, the new Crown presents as an elevated sedan, much like the original Venza did, thanks to a seating position that is four inches higher than the Camry’s and a roofline that matches. With two-tone paint, the top model will be available.
2023 Toyota Crown Interior
The 2023 Toyota Crown cabin has a suitably upscale appearance inside. In particular, if they choose a Limited or Platinum model, drivers who trade in their Avalon sedans are in for an upgrade. The Crown might be an appealing option to full-size sedans that nonetheless follow a more conventional formula because the driving position is increased from a regular sedan height to something resembling a small SUV. Eight-way power-adjustable front seats with heating, dual-zone automatic climate control, and ambient interior lighting are standard on all versions. A panoramic sunroof, leather interior, and ventilated front seats are added in the Limited and Platinum models.
Infotainment and connectivity features
All models come standard with a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen that runs Toyota’s most recent and much-upgraded software interface. The infotainment software incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which communicate wirelessly with cellphones. Digital gauges are shown on a second 12.3-inch display in front of the driver, and the Crown also boasts conveniences like a wireless smartphone charging pad, onboard Wi-Fi, and USB-C ports. The Limited and Platinum variants have an 11-speaker JBL stereo in place of the six speakers that come standard with the XLE trim.
Engine, power and transmission
Every Crown model comes with a hybrid powertrain, although only the highest-end variants have Toyota’s new Hybrid Max configuration, which combines a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder with an electric motor on the back axle for a combined 340 horsepower, is included with the Platinum model. A 2.5-litre four-cylinder and three electric motors are used in the 236-hp hybrid powertrain that comes standard on the XLE and Limited variants. All-wheel drive is standard on every trim level and is available on the XLE, Limited, and Platinum. The Platinum has a six-speed automatic transmission.
Safety and driver assistance features
Toyota equips the Toyota Crown with a slew of standard safety systems, including adaptive cruise control, active lane control, automatic high lights, road sign recognition, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and a system to remind the driver to buckle up in the backseat. Additionally, the Platinum model includes automated parking.
