Toyota has given its luxury minivan the Vellfire a full-model change and the new model went on sale January 26 with a price tag of 3,197,782 to 7,036,691 yen. It was based on the design concept of “a spacious luxury saloon.” The large plated grille on the front face give it a strong countenance.

The lineup of power units includes a 3.5-liter V6 that packs 280ps/6200rpm maximum output and 35.1kgm/4700rpm maximum torque, a 2.5-liter in-line 4-cylinder that gets 182ps/6000rpm and 24.0kgm/4100rpm maximum torque, and a hybrid system that combines the 2.5-liter in-line 4-cylinder engine with a motor.

The “Executive Lodge” luxury grade 3.5-liter version is 4930mm long, 1850mm wide and 1935mm in height, with a lower clearance of 160mm. It weighs 2100kg.
