Toyota’s Crown Concept has just made its public debut at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show, where visitors can truly get a sense of what to expect from next year’s production car.
According to Toyota, the Crown Concept is about two things, driving performance and connectivity, with the automaker looking to provide customers with an enjoyable drive in a future mobility society.
Like the all-new Camry, the Crown Concept is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), and has even been tested at the Nurburgring in an attempt to make the handling feel more responsive, while increasing stability over various surfaces.
When you’re not out driving the wheels off your Crown Concept (hypothetically), you can just sit back and enjoy all the connected tech and safety features surrounding you. For example, this car comes with Toyota’s ITS Connect service, which shares information on things like traffic signals and other vehicles – it’s Toyota’s way of trying to reduce traffic congestion.
A production version of the Crown Concept will make its debut next summer, and if the show car’s interior is anything to go by (and it should), potential buyers can look forward to sitting in a surprisingly elegant and well-built cabin.
