Thai version of the all-new Toyota Alphard (2015 Bangkok International Motor Show)

2015 Bangkok Motor Show: Toyota debuts their Alphard & Vellfire in Thailand with subtle differences from Japanese model

On March 23, Toyota Motor Thailand unveiled their all-new Alphard and Vellfire at the 2015 Bangkok International Motor Show.

The new Alphard and Vellfire were just released on January 26 in Japan. Luxury minivans with spaciousness and comfort are popular even in overseas markets such as Thailand, and as a result, Toyota has launched these models for the first time locally.

A black Alphard and white Vellfire were showcased at the Toyota booth. Toyota’s intentions are evident through the exhibit of their top-of-the-line Executive Lounge for the Japanese market.

Meanwhile, the all-new Alphard and Vellfire for the Thai market is somewhat different from its Japanese version. Although the Japanese variant of the Executive Lounge features a standard body, the model on display at the Bangkok Motor Show was equipped with aero parts. It also offers a different design from the Japanese model.

The differences include 18-inch aluminum wheels for an advanced aero body instead of the 17-inch wheels equipped on its Japanese version. The new Alphard and Vellfire have been distinguished and personalized for Toyota’s Thai market.
