  1. Please hold tight to your chair before you scroll down for the images. ... Are you ready? ... Ok, be prepared, OK? Sadly, this is how the new Japanese Rojak will look like... Patent images obtained by Japanese magazines from the local trademark bureau show a new take on the Crown. It doesn’t seem to be wearing its distinctive badge, but we're being told this high-riding fastback will indeed be sold as a Crown. The somewhat odd shape should be familiar as the Citroën C5 X and China's Ford Evos have a similar body. Going back in time, we're getting hints of the defunct Honda Crosstour. The car featured here will reportedly go by the name of Crown Cross and should have the following dimensions: 4,930 mm long, 1,840 mm wide, and 1,540 mm tall, with a wheelbase measuring 2,850 mm. That would make it bigger in every dimension compared to the outgoing sedan, but with a slightly shorter wheelbase. Sources from the Land of the Rising Sun claim Toyota wants to sell the reinvented Crown with a four-cylinder 2.5-liter hybrid engine hooked out to a CVT. There also might be a turbocharged 2.4-liter with an electric motor and a six-speed automatic. It will sit on the TNGA-K platform and come with a choice between front- and all-wheel drive, with a plug-in hybrid option in the works. The official premiere is allegedly locked in for July 15. And I forgot to add, when I first saw its face, it is >90% like the Civic.
  2. Toyota Crown SUV Reportedly Planned Because Nothing Is Sacred Anymore source: https://www.motor1.com/news/454132/toyota-crown-suv-rumor/ One of Toyota's longest-running nameplates could be infected by the SUV plague. In production since 1955 and with a history of no fewer than 15 generations, the Crown is one of Toyota’s oldest nameplates still in production. It’s also widely regarded as the first Japanese car to be sold in North America, launching in the United States as the Toyopet Crown in 1958 or around the same time when Datsun arrived stateside. The current-generation model (codenamed S220) was launched in 2018 and recently went through a minor update bringing a larger infotainment system to unify the previously two individual displays. A worrying report from Japan claims the Crown could become an entirely new vehicle for what would be its sixteenth generation – an SUV. According to the Chunichi Shimbun newspaper, Toyota aims to keep the “Crown” name alive in the future, but switch from the long-running sedan body style to an SUV. The source should be quite credible taking into account the newspaper is mainly published in the Aichi Prefecture where Toyota has its headquarters. The transition from a sedan to an SUV is expected to take place as early as 2022 due to dwindling sedan sales. A year later, Chunichi Shimbun reports the high-riding Crown will allegedly arrive in the United States and China. The newspaper claims it would be based on the Highlander, meaning the TNGA-K platform used locally for the equivalent JDM-spec Kluger and also for the Harrier (Venza in the US), Wildlander (RAV4 / Suzuki Across), and other vehicles.
  3. The new TNGA-based sedan is bigger and more refined than before. UPDATE: Four videos added below. The first two require no Japanese language ability to understand, but the other two are predominantly in the language. After launching its absolute flagship for Japan, the Century, Toyota is now introducing the more mainstream Crown luxury sedan, which was previewed by a namesake concept last year. The automaker describes the 15th generation of the model as the first-generation connected car because it comes as standard equipped with a data communication module (DCM). Based on Toyota’s new TNGA platform, the vehicle has been tested on the Nurburgring and should deliver “outstanding handling,” “responsive driving performance,” and “exceptional vehicle stability” in a wide range of driving conditions. The new model is slightly longer than its predecessor, which was launched in 2012 - 193 inches (4,190 millimeters) versus 192 inches (4,885 mm), with a bit longer wheelbase, expanding the rear passenger legroom. The automaker is proud to announce it has modernized the entire cabin which now features higher quality materials and more space for the driver and passengers. The dashboard is dominated by a new dual-screen layout, which combines an eight-inch central screen and another seven-inch display for the climate and audio functions. Toyota also says the TNGA architecture brings significant improvements in terms of cabin quietness, which are achieved thanks to the optimized vehicle body frame structure and optimum arrangement of soundproofing materials. The underpinnings also allow for a lower installation of the engine, which provides a lower center of gravity. Speaking of the engine, Toyota will offer the new Crown with three different powertrains. The only non-hybrid option is a 2.0-liter turbo gas unit with 245 horsepower (180 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (350 Newton-meters) of torque. Two hybrid variants will be available, combining 2.5- and 3.5-liter gas engines respectively with an electric motor and nickel-metal hydride or lithium-ion battery. The smaller powertrain has a peak power of 226 hp (166 kW), while the more powerful one produces 359 hp (264 kW). Order books in Japan will be opened next month with Toyota planning to sell no less than 4,500 units monthly.
  4. Two decommissioned Toyota Crowns remain in Singapore and they will be replaced by Hyundai Sonatas upon request. Considered the “King of the road” in Singapore from the 1980s even up till 2006! You could look anywhere on the road and spot a Toyota Crown Taxi (or more) with ease. Here’s a brief guide on the evolution of the Crown over the years! 1970s – Toyota Crown S120 The crown gained popularity with taxi companies in Singapore along with the Nissan Cedric and Isuzu Florian. Modifications were done to these cars to lower operating costs over comfort. If you’ve ever sat in one of these, you’ll never forget the noises and vibrations that come along with the ride. At times, you would feel like you might not get to your destination in one piece! 1980s – Toyota Crown S130 NTUC-Comfort were the biggest players in the taxi industry with an estimate of 6300 cars (most of them Crowns) on the road. In 1988, The Crown was the first Toyota to come with an airbag! Air-conditioning that used to be a luxury were also fitted into most taxis. 1990s – Toyota Crown S130 receives a facelift The Crown sedan received a minor facelift but retained its S130 roots. This model gained the most popularity in Singapore and featured iconic round headlights and chrome bumpers. It was fitted with a 2.4-liter diesel engine and was an extremely fast car. If your taxi driver was feeling a bit heavy footed that day, you would have one fun ride! 2000s – Toyota Crown Comfort Featuring smaller exterior dimensions but a more spacious and as its name suggests, comfortable interior, The Crown Comfort received much popularity in Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong. This model would be the last of the Crowns that would touch Singapore roads. Hyundai Sonatas started to dominate the taxi industry as more Crowns were decommissioned and scrapped. Millennials won’t understand the thrill of taking a ride in a Crown was equivalent to a ride at Universal Studios Singapore. It’s been one hell of a journey Toyota Crown! You’ll be missed!

  12. BMW Group Asia has sustained its lead as both a premium and overall automotive brand in Singapore with a total of 2,647 vehicles registered based on LTA figures for New Registration of Cars. The BMW 5 Series continues to be the top selling model with the recently introduced ActiveHybrid 5 expected to provide a further boost. The range topping M5 has also seen success with more than 50 units already sold since its launch, while the new 3 Series and the flagship 7 Series limousine significantly contributing to sales figures. More exciting products will be arriving on the coming months as BMW gets on with its second phase of EfficientDynamics strategy by introducing ActiveHybrid 3 and 7 models after the successful introduction of the ActiveHybrid 5. Moreover BMW will also introduce the M Performance Automobiles with exclusive engine variants, enhanced agility and precision for a greater performance without compromising on everyday use. MINI has also performed well with a total of 150 vehicles registered. The MINI Clubvan, a premium model in the small car-based van segment, will also arrive later this year and targets the trend-conscious commercial vehicle users.
  13. SUZUKA: Ferrari's Fernando Alonso set his sights on being Formula One's youngest triple champion after losing his double record to Sebastian Vettel in Japan on Sunday. The Spaniard, who won his second title with Renault in 2006 as a 25-year-old, leaned over to shake the 24-year-old Red Bull driver's hand in congratulations at a post-race news conference. Asked how it felt to have lost his status, Alonso said it was "really nothing special". "I think now we will see who is the youngest three-time world champion," he added. Only eight drivers have ever won three or more championships and the youngest was Brazilian Ayrton Senna who was 31 when he clinched his third at Suzuka in 1991 with McLaren. Alonso, who missed out on a third title last year when Ferrari made a strategic error in the final race that effectively handed Vettel his first championship, will be 31 in July next year. Ferrari have struggled this season, with Alonso's win at Silverstone their sole success, and the Spaniard's second place at Suzuka was a welcome return to form for a team already focusing fully on their 2012 car. Team boss Stefano Domenicali hailed that as an amazing result. "Our driver was always on the attack and came very close to a win which would have been incredible, given our performance two weeks ago in Singapore (where Alonso came fourth)," he said. source http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/...ow/10291300.cms
