Toyota Granvia Getting Ready To Launch In Australia In Q4

Offered with no major upgrades since 2006, the Toyota Tarago will be replaced by the Granvia in Australia in the fourth quarter of the year.

Unlike the older model, which was an MPV, the new one is a passenger van, with a focus on luxury, based on the same platform as the HiAce. It’s aimed at big families or corporate buyers, who will have to choose between two trim levels, the base and VX, with seating for up to 6 or 8 occupants.

The entry-level model is well equipped, getting four individual reclining captain’s chairs with armrests at the back, front and rear climate control, keyless entry&go, dual side sliding doors and a new infotaiment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The Toyota Safety Sense driver assist bundle is also standard, bringing Pre-Collision Safety System with Pedestrian (day and night) and Cyclist (day only) detection, Lane Departure Alert, Road Sign Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Active Cruise Control, automatic high beams and so on.

Getting the Granvia VX instead ensures a deeper level of luxury and comfort. This grade adds quilted leather-accented upholstery, power adjustment for the backrest, fold-out leg-rest, a heated second row in the eight seat variant and heated seats all around in the six-seater – power operated sliding rear doors are included as well. Models with seating for 8 occupants add a fourth row, with a 60/40 split bench.

Speaking about the Granvia, Toyota Australia’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Sean Hanley, said that “it provides an almost limousine-like degree of cabin comfort and refinement for passengers”.
