Following its initial reveal in May, Toyota Australia has confirmed some additional details of the newest Toyota Granvia people-mover that can arrive late this current year. It comes in to restore the Tarago, sharing platforms when using the new Toyota HiAce.
The local arm has confirmed two variants is going available here; the Granvia plus the Granvia VX. Both will probably be provided with regardless of whether six-seat or eight-seat cabin layout, with four captain’s chairs getting back together cost-free and third row. Taking the eight-seat option adds a fourth row with two extra seats.
Both versions include front and rear heating and cooling, dual sliding side doors (electric over the VX), and also a comprehensive touch-screen media interface with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In addition there are smart entry you need to as standard, while using the VX adding bonus luxuries like quilted leather, and ottoman-style leg rests.
Aside through the little luxuries, the modern model promises to be a much safer plus much more advanced MPV compared to outgoing Tarago. Most of the standard safety tech includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active cruise control, lane departure warning, road sign recognition, and auto high-beam headlights. Rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot warning are also found in the package.
Toyota says the new model targets on providing a comfortable premium transport experience. In this sense, they may interest hospitality and company buyers, and even families that desire more in comparison to the average people-mover. Discussing the revolutionary model, Toyota Australia vice presidents sales and marketing, Sean Hanley, said:
“It offers a nearly limousine-like level of cabin comfort and refinement for passengers with large captain’s chairs, independent rear heating and cooling and six rear USB ports to have devices fully charged for business or entertainment.”
Details within the engine options not confirmed for Australia, but Toyota has previously confirmed it can be offered by using a turbo-diesel engine only. We suspect it will eventually use the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel from your new HiAce, producing around 130kW/450Nm.
All from the information and facts is required to be announced inside the coming months, having an on-sale date penned set for your fourth quarter of 2019. Charges are also not finalised.
