Before the reveal of the new Toyota Crown luxury sedan, the Crown welcomed a few other body types that are based on the same design language. There is the Crown Estate, the Crown Crossover, and the Crown Sport which is described as a “new sport type SUV form” that promises to bring “fun to drive” to everyone. I am not sure what’s everyone’s take but I thought it looked like the Lamborghini Urus.
The Toyota Crown Sport Z revealed last month was a hybrid vehicle powered by a 2.5L Series Parallel Hybrid System. Next month (December), a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version will join the lineup and before the end of FY2024, the aforementioned Estate will be introduced too.
Anyhoo, the all-new Sport SUV is designed to offer a captivating driving experience with a focus on aesthetics and performance. It features a striking design, an interior built for driver focus, and a range of color options. The Sport prioritizes ease of entry and exit and pays attention to detail, creating a comfortable and enjoyable cabin environment.
With a focus on fun-oriented driving, it employs a specially tuned suspension system and advanced hybrid technology for a balance of performance and efficiency. Safety is a priority with advanced features included, and it also offers connected navigation support for convenience. The Sport model aims to cater to a wide range of customer preferences and lifestyles within the Toyota Crown series.
