Toyota will unveil the 16th generation Crown in July 2022. The first model to be shown is the Crossover, which will be sold in the US. Later, Toyota announced three more body styles that would expand the lineup. Crown Sport, Sedan, and Estate have now been put in the spotlight, as the initial technical specifications were released in advance of their sales in Japan this fall. The Estate (wagon), however, is scheduled to be released in 2024.
2024 Toyota Crown Sport Review
The Crown Sedan, Sport, and Estate will all be available with plug-in hybrid engines and seating for up to five passengers. The Crown Sedan is available with two-wheel-drive, whereas the Sport and Estate are four-wheel-drive. Toyota says that the Sedan can be ordered with wheels of 19- or 20-inches, while the Sport and Estate come standard with alloys of 21-inches. The Japanese website shows the Sport and Estate in two-tone finishes, while the Sport has a monochromatic look.
Toyota only showed the exterior design of three Crown models when they introduced them last year. New videos have now shown the interiors of these models. They are similar to the Crown sold in America. Below is a table that compares the sizes of three of the new Crown models.
The 2024 Toyota Crown, as a carryover version, will have the same look and feel as the current model. The current sedan features a front with thin headlights and a horizontal lighting component that spans the width of the car. It also has a large front air intake. The sedan is higher than other sedans and features rugged body cladding. The Crown’s sloping rooftop gives it a hatchback-like appearance, while bumpers and rounded edges finish the rear.
The interior of the current Crown is luxurious. The dashboard is divided into two sections by a curved section. The dash is dominated by two large screens that are integrated into a single unit. A thin row of controls for the HVAC is located on the center console. The Crown has a spacious cabin and generous space for passengers thanks to its design. The design of the 2024 Crown will remain the same as the model currently on sale.
The Crown is equipped with a 12.3″ touchscreen, a digital instrument cluster of 12.3″, wireless Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, five USB ports, and six audio speakers as standard. The 2024 model is expected to include these features.
Toyota offers two engines for the Crown. The standard engine is a four-cylinder 2.5-liter with two electric motors, delivering 236 horsepower. The engine available is a turbocharged 2.4-liter 4-cylinder paired with dual electric motors to produce 340 horsepower. The standard is all-wheel drive. Crown powertrains are not expected to change in 2024.
As standard, the Crown is equipped with adaptive cruise control. Other features include pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automatic emergency brakes, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear seat alert, safe exit assist, and automatic hi-beam assistance. Parking sensors, park assistance, and a 360-degree parking camera are available features. The Toyota Crown 2024 should have the same safety features.
