Toyota Crown

Toyota Crown

short description:

The Crown Athlete is an excellent car to drive — the steering is well-weighted, and allows you to feel the road and what the car is doing. The ride is firm, but not so much that it is uncomfortable on bumpy roads. What is very impressive is how quiet the car and the 2.5-litre six-cylinder engine are. At idle, the Crown is almost silent – you’ll only really hear the engine under heavy acceleration. The 2.5-litre engine produces 149kW and 243Nm of torque, more than enough for day-to-day driving. There are larger 3-litre and 3.5-litre engines available, which would be nice to have, but not necessary. he five-speed automatic transmission is excellent, and features power and ice modes. The power mode causes the engine to rev higher before shifting for better performance, where the ice mode will shift sooner for better grip in slippery conditions. There is also a switch that can adjust the suspension to be firmer for sportier handling.

The Toyota Crown is reputedly extremely reliable — it is known in the trade as ‘over-engineered’, or built to a higher standard than required. Our research found no specific issues to look out for, but as always, ensure the vehicle has been regularly serviced.

The 2.5-litre V6 engine uses a timing chain rather than a cambelt. This means it is unlikely to ever need replacement, but its tensioners and the water pump should be part of a major service every 90,000km.

The Toyota Crown is a relatively niche model, sold new primarily in Japan. We couldn't find applicable crash testing information.

Our review vehicle has a reasonable level of safety equipment, with driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock braking, electronic stability control and electronic brake-force distribution. A reversing camera is standard on most of these cars.

A small number of Crowns made from 2006 have adaptive cruise control and a radar-based collision warning system, which will sound an alarm if you are at risk of running into the car in front of you.

The back seat features full three-point seatbelts in all three positions, and ISOFIX child seat mounts and tethers in the window seat positions.
