Toyota has unveiled an all-new generation of the Alphard and Vellfire and it won’t be long before the showrooms of grey importers around the country will be filled with these MPVs. Since UMW Toyota is officially selling the Alphard, we’re guessing it will eventually be in UMW Toyota showrooms as well.

Sitting on a new longer wheelbase platform with a double wishbone rear suspension, the new Alphard/Vellfire twins also debut some new features and technologies such as a new Panoramic View Monitor which looks and functions similiar to the one found on the Lexus NX.

There’s also a new Intelligent Clearance Sonar with Pre-collision System which can automatically apply the brakes to mitigate low speed accidents and a Radar Cruise Control with All-speed Tracking function that can be used to maintain a pre-set distance to the vehicle ahead between 0 to 100 km/h.

Other enhancements include a standard LED roof illumination – now with four brightness levels and 16 colour variations – and a Smart Entry & Push Start System with Welcome Power Slide Door & Reservation Lock function. The latter can be set to automatically open the sliding door as the user approaches.

Toyota Japan has produced a few videos showing these features in action – if you’re interested in getting a new Alphard or Vellfire when they eventually land in Malaysia, you’ll want to watch them to get familiarised with what you’re buying. The videos also give a better in-motion view of the exterior and interior.
