Toyota showcased the Vellfire MPV to prospective customers at a private event in the country. It’s essentially a sportier version of the Alphard MPV but with roughly the same level of luxury features. Reports suggest that the Alphard will be brought in via the CBU route from Thailand making use of the recently introduced rule that allows manufacturers to import up to 2500 units of a vehicle sans homologation, but meeting the highest standards of automotive compliance.
The Alphard, in essence, is a six-seat model with flexible seating options, leather upholstery, touchscreen infotainment system, climate control with multiple zones and all the practicality offered by an MPV. A second leaked image reveals mood lighting, twin moon roof, seven airbags and individual tables for all rows. The only engine on offer is the 2.5-litre hybrid four-cylinder petrol engine producing 178bhp/235Nm with an e-CVT and possibly AWD.
