Toyota Redesigns Interior of Crown for New Large Display

The technical part of the sedan has remained unchanged.

Toyota has refreshed the interior of the fifteenth-generation Crown by installing a new infotainment system on the fascia. In other respects, the sedan remains the same: the exterior and engine range have not been changed.

The company had to significantly change the fascia architecture for a new large display. The fascia panel is crowned with a 12.3-inch infotainment system instead of a small screen and a separate climate control unit. However, there are new climate system controls and a CD player below it.

The updated sedan is equipped with a proprietary set of security systems, which is called Safety Sense. It includes automatic braking and pedestrian recognition in the dark, as well as driver's condition monitoring – if the electronics notice that a driver is too tired to drive, it will smoothly stop the car.

The Crown's “stuffing” is left unchanged. The base engine is a 2.0-liter 245-hp turbo V4. It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The Crown is also offered with a 226-hp hybrid powertrain based on a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated unit. There are only RWD and AWD available for it. The top engine remains a 3.5-liter V6, which produces 359 hp in total if it is paired with an electric motor.

The upgraded Toyota Crown has already been released in Japan. It costs starting from ¥4,899,000 ($46,730).

At the end of October, Toyota had to recall one and a half million cars worldwide, including those produced under the Lexus brand. The reason for the recall was a fuel pump system, which millions of owners complained about problems with.
