About the new Crown Sport

About two years ago, President Akio Toyoda asked the development team, “Why don’t we seriously remake the crown?” Mr. Nakajima was asked if he would like to launch a “sedan” after the “crossover” got the go-ahead. .

The Corolla, Corolla Touring, Corolla Sport, and Corolla Cross have made the Corolla very popular.And I had a strong impression that it was a good car for the price, and it looked good and made a good impression.The “Crown” brand will also evolve like never before as a new model aiming for a revival..

Mr. Nakajima said in the presentationThe order in which the models were introduced was “crossover”, “sports”, “sedan” and “estate”.Furthermore,Looking at the models that have been released, the degree of perfection is “sport”. Also, it is very natural that the next lineup will be a “sport” that has been changed to a sport based on the “crossover”.

Even if you compare the images from the side, you can clearly see that the front is almost the same, and the rear design shape is the difference between the sedan and the hatchback. We call it “sport”Looking at the worldly silhouette, it will be a pure crossover SUV.

In order to bring in a new generation, the sedan style has a strong impression of being old-fashioned and old-fashioned, rather than being cool and friendly compared to old people.By making it a “crossover SUV”, I feel the desire to get people in their 40s and 30s to ride it by changing the impression of luxury and design.By skipping minor changes to the 15th generation and making all four bodies “Crown” models as the 16th generation, while responding to customer needs,I felt the desire to leave the “Crown” as a Toyota brand and the willingness to take on challenges.As the author, the most attractive one in the “Crown Series” is the “Crown Sport” this time, so it seems that the attention of the market is high. Those who are considering purchasing should start accepting orders at the dealer as soon as the release date is approaching.
