Toyota company has finally decided that 2014 Toyota Alphard is placed officially on the market.So far, this model was only available in the gray market and now the car will be launched first in Malaysia and later in other areas.
A fan on Live Life Drive’s Facebook web page sent us what resembles an after-sales product rundown timetable for a new Toyota design, which plainly lists the Toyota Alphard as the target. Matching that together with exactly what insider information we currently have, it resembles the second-generation high-end MPV will certainly make its launching at some time late February, alongside the RM270,000 (est.) Toyota Previa MPV.
Just how much will it set you back? Well, an informed source discussed that the brand-new Toyota Alphard will certainly enter the Malaysian market at a determined price of RM300,000; more than the upcoming Previa, which was previewed at the recent KLIMS 2013 at RM270,000.2014 Toyota Alphard is likely to be introduced concurrently with the Previa.
Aside from the photos we’ve taken care of to pull together for you here, it’s almost any individual’s guess concerning what specifications the Japanese-built Alphard will come to us in, bearing in mind that space is a guaranteed, but Toyota hasn’t been really charitable with the reduced range Previa’s equipment, so don’t anticipate way too much with the Alphard.
Numerous our neighbors have actually been selling the Alphard for many years (as a main import) currently. Right here’s a recap of just what they’re obtaining.
In Singapore, for example, the Alphard is marketed stringently as a eight-seater with a 2.4-litre engine under its hood (if you’re asking, yes, the same 2.4-litre which powered the outward bound Toyota Camry), and is paired with a CVT transmission.
In Thailand, things acquire a bit even more thorough, with Toyota providing three variations: a 3.5-litre with a six-speed automobile, a 2.4-litre with a CVT, and a 2.4-litre Hybrid variation with a 140kW Electrical 4WD device.
If we had to guess, Malaysians will have a 2.4-litre, CVT variant to anticipate. And there isn’t too much opportunity of the hybrid variant making it right here (Alphard is a CBU device from Japan, brand-new NAP 2014 has no tax exceptions for CBU hybrids).
And if we’re right about the 2.4-litre mill, figures for this feature 168hp @ 6,000 rpm and 224Nm of torque @ 4,000 rpm pressing the front wheels of this 7- or eight-seater (relying on model).
