2023 Toyota Crown is, the latest Toyota in the company’s U.S. lineup, a crossover combination of cars that inherits the Avalon’s shortcomings. Its odd shape might not be for everyone, but people kept asking us that question during our drives.

Optional supersonic red paintwork and 21-inch gunmetal alloy wheels accentuate the Crown’s distinctive design, which has garnered a lot of attention both in the New York City area and at Watkins Glenn International Airport, where I was recently at Watkins Glenn International Airport uses it as a support vehicle for mass sports endurance events.

Looks aren’t the only thing the crown has to offer. A spacious interior and lots of useful technology make it an ideal place to stay, whether you’re on a long road trip or just commuting. There’s a seamless infotainment system that’s easy to use and good looking, with wireless Apple CarPlay and a well-functioning wireless phone charging slot.

2023 Toyota Crown Performance, Engine And Horsepower

The Toyota Crown comes with two different hybrid systems. Opting for the premium Platinum trim level gets you the company’s Hybrid Max system, which combines a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a six-speed automatic transmission and an electric motor on the rear axle for combined outputs of 340 and 400 horsepower produces pound-feet of torque.

Choose Limited or XLE trim and you get a naturally aspirated 2,5-liter engine mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and three electric motors that combine to produce 236 horsepower.

The Toyota Crown’s cabin is, a great place for long drives and daily commutes. The driver’s seat has enough adjustment range to suit all body types, and there are many functions available.

We’re big fans of the standard seat ventilation, wireless Apple CarPlay, and wireless phone chargers that actually work differently than most products from other manufacturers.

Crown puts comfort at the forefront of the driving experience, delivering a smooth, comfortable, flowy ride that doesn’t intrude on the cabin. Handling is, clearly tuned for a more relaxed, relaxed driving style, which is, exactly what we envision for a vehicle of this class.

One thing we wanted to take away from our tester was the Advanced Technology package, as it adds a huge set of 21-inch alloy wheels. While they look great, they make bigger bumps in the cabin more noticeable we suspect the base 19inch wheels would make things more comfortable.

Pros And Cons

The first Toyota Crown appeared as early as 1955, offering sedan, wagon, hatchback and coupe body styles throughout its production run. If you spend the night in Tokyo, you’ll see dozens of Crown taxis cruising the streets. Now it’s finally available to U.S. buyers.
