Undeniably one of the most popular MPVs on our roads, UMW Toyota Motor has officially unveiled the all-new Alphard here. UMW Toyota Motor started accepting bookings for the new Alphard and Vellfire back in June.
UMW Toyota is offering the Toyota Alphard with two trim levels, namely the Alphard 3.5 Executive Lounge and Alphard 3.5. Standard interior fitment for both variants include an Optitron meter cluster with a 4.2-inch Multi Info Display (MID), cruise control, Smart Entry and Start System plus Smart Key for driver, passenger and power back door, auto air conditioning with Nanoe™ air purifying, front power seats with ottoman for passenger, 50:50 split folding rear second row seats and a tilt and telescopic steering wheel.
The Alphard 3.5 gets a four-spoke leather wrapped steering with brown wood finishing, beige leather seats, captain power seat with ottoman, ceiling illumination plus a 7-inch DVD-AVN infotainment system with navigation. The Alphard 3.5 gets 8 speakers as standard fitment.
The Executive Lounge variant gets Electro Multi Vision as standard equipment, plus ceiling illumination with metallic ornament, semi-aniline leather seats with the option of black or beige, VIP power seat with ottoman and seat air conditioning and an eight-inch DVD-AVN infotainment system with navigation backed by a 17 JBL speaker set up. The steering wheel is a four-spoke leather wrapped unit with VIP wood grain finishing.
Exterior wise, both variants of the Alphard are identical, featuring 235/50R18 alloy wheels all round, LED headlights with auto levelling, cornering lights, LED daytime running lights, front and rear fog lights, rear spoiler with integrated LED high mount stop lamp and power folding with memory side mirrors. In addition to that, both Alphards also get a twin moon roof set up.
Powering both variants of the Toyota Alphard is a 3.5-litre naturally-aspirated Dual-VVTi V6 that churns out 271 PS at 6,200 rpm and 340 Nm at 4,700. The six-speed automatic transfers the power to the front wheels.
In terms of safety, both variants of the Toyota Alphard gets ABS, EBD, BA, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and front and rear parking sensors. Airbag count is 7.
UMW Toyota Motor will back the Toyota Alphard with a 5 year warranty with unlimited mileage, on top of the 10 year guaranteed parts availability. Our local Toyota Alphard models aren’t just imported from Japan, as these officially-imported models feature a unique ECU tune, larger side mirrors, localized audio and navigation system. Furthermore, UMW Toyota Motor is keen to point out that the officially-imported Alphards are engineered to suit Malaysian road and weather conditions.
The Toyota Alphard 3.5 retails for RM419,900, while the Alphard Executive Lounge 3.5 has a price tag of RM519,900. Both prices are OTR with GST and insurance.
