Since late last year, there have been rumors that Toyota was going to ditch the Crown sedan, using its name in a new premium crossover. Nevertheless, it recently became clear that the famous four-door will still remain in the model line of the Japanese brand, albeit not without nuances. The day before, independent designers from the BestCarWeb portal decided to show how the sixteenth Crown generation will look like.
It is already known that with the change of generations, Crown will completely change its philosophy, moving from a rear-wheel drive platform to a front-wheel drive one. According to preliminary information, the model will be based on the TNGA modular platform, which was previously tested on fresh Camry and Land Cruiser, and in the future will become a “trolley” for all new Toyota models.
As you can see in the first unofficial images, the four-door will get an aggressive exterior with extended head optics and a coupe-like body.
It’s too early to talk about the technical side of the model, because the official release of the new generation Crown has not yet been confirmed. However, according to the Japanese media, engines have already been identified for the novelty: they will be hybrid power plants operating on the basis of gasoline internal combustion engines with a working volume of 2.5 and 3.5 liters.
