Toyota has revealed the 2018 Alphard and Vellfire MPVs, slated to go on sale on January 8, 2018, in the Japanese market.
The new models come with the second generation Toyota Safety Sense as standard across all variants. It includes Pre-crash safety, which can detect cyclists and pedestrians also at night, thanks to the improved performance of monocular camera and millimeter wave radar. Also included are Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Radar Cruise Control, Road Sign Assist (RSA), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Blind Spot Monitor (BSM).
Engine options include a 3.5L V6 (2GR-FKS) with 8-speed automatic, and a 2.5L (2AR – FXE) hybrid powertrain (Toyota Hybrid System II) as well.
