All New Toyota Crown Cross and New Crown Range Unveiled

The all-new Toyota Crown in its fastback form called Crown Cross was supposed to make its debut on 15th July, however Toyota has surprised everyone with the unveiling of a whole new Crown range which consist of a crossover, sports hatchback, sedan and an estate.

The new Crown range which will be the 16th generation of the iconic nameplate was unveiled in a dedicated event organized in Japan. The Crown was first introduced in 1955 and stayed alive for over 65 years spanning across 15 generations in its known saloon form.

Toyota’s development team in charge of the new Crown went through a thorough re-examination of what the Crown name meant, and in Toyota’s own words, the outgoing Crown become “unable to fully meet the diversifying needs of its customers” and diminished its presence as a flagship vehicle because of it, so the result is this significant shift.

For now, Toyota has only shown the exterior designs of the other 3 vehicles, deciding to black out all their windows at the event, perhaps due to the fact that the interior isn’t ready at this stage. All Crown iterations ride on Toyota’s TNGA-K modular platform.
