On Sale Summer 2020
Toyota has expanded its catalogue today with the unveiling of the 2025 Crown Signia. The all-new hybrid electric sport utility vehicle from the automaker will be available for purchase beginning next summer, complementing the Crown sedan in the organization’s American inventory.
The single powerplant available is Toyota’s Hybrid Electric Vehicle system that links up a 2.5 liters four-cylinder engine with two electric motors. There are three different driving modes: Eco, Normal and Sport. Under Eco mode, the battery range and fuel efficiency will be enhanced, whereas the Sport setting provides an agile throttle response. Additionally, the option of EV Mode allows the Crown to traverse on just electricity at low speeds over short ranges.
Toyota’s electronic all-wheel drive is a standard feature on the model, which utilizes a rear-mounted electric motor to power the back wheels. Generating a total of 243 horsepower, this vehicle also delivers an impressive 36 mpg combined. Furthermore, it can even tow up to 2,700 lbs with its continuously variable transmission.
Within the enclosed space, the chauffeur examines a 12.3-inch configuration customizable digital display while an additional display, measuring the same dimensions, is located on the dash to work as the infotainment system. Standard seats come with 8-way control power for both passengers and drivers. In the center console, there is a vertical wireless charger in addition to three USB-C ports. Rear seat occupants are provided with two ports, two individual air vents, two cup holders, and pockets located on the backs of the seats. Moreover, heated and ventilated seating is available.
Toyota is offering the Crown in two versions, XLE and Limited, with varied rims and chair upholstery. The XLE features multi-spoke, 19-inch black-accented two-tone alloy wheels along with textiles and SofTex-clad seating surfaces. Concerning the Limited, there are bigger 21-inch dark gray metallic alloys paired with double-stitched leather seating.
The inside of the Crown is finished with bronze trim on the dashboard, steering wheel, and console in the middle. Music can be heard through a six-speaker audio system on the XLE and an 11-speaker JBL Premium setup on the Limited, which also has a subwoofer. When folded down, the 60/40 second-row seats provide an expansive six and a half foot cargo space that can be conveniently accessed thanks to a hands-free powered liftgate.
Toyota is making the SUV available in five different hues: Storm Cloud, Finish Line Red, Oxygen White, Ebony, and Bronze Age. Interior trim options are either Saddle Tan or Black, both available in both grades.
Toyota’s latest iteration of its popular model is equipped as standard with the Safety Sense 3.0 suite, sporting such features as pre-collision alerting with pedestrian recognition technology, lane difference signaling with guidance support, an all-speed variant for dynamic radar cruise control, road recognition assistance, automated high intensity lights, and more. Opting for the Limited Package brings with it the additional perk of side lane shift aid and a panoramic visual monitor system.
Toyota asserts the 2025 Crown Signia will be in dealerships come summertime. An estimated pricing scheme should be unveiled shortly prior to its availability in the marketplace. The Crown Signia will form part of nineteen electrified models from Toyota available in the US.
