Itching for the new 2015 Toyota Vellfire, but want the grandest, most luxurious one there is? Well, look no further – the 3.5 Executive Lounge model has landed on Malaysian shores. It may not be the first unit of the outlandishly-styled latest-gen luxe-MPV in the country, but it’s the first time we’re seeing it in the poshest trim level, brought in by grey importer CHY Autoworld and showcased at Sunway Pyramid this weekend.

Little distinguishes the Executive Lounge from the outside – it’s fitted with normal bumpers (rather than the more aggressive aero-type items found elsewhere) along with smaller 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. This particular unit is dressed up with a Modellista bodykit that does raise the visual drama somewhat.

But it’s inside where you really feel like a boss – the Executive Lounge comes with a pair of heated and ventilated second-row captain seats that really do bring the business class experience to the road. Not only do the backrests recline electrically, but there are also a power-extendable ottoman, complete with a telescopic function.

Also fitted are large armrests complete with centralised control panels, retractable tables, smartphone holders, 100 V AC power outlets, file holders and spacers that prevent loose items from falling into the narrow slot between the two seats.

Additionally, there are individual LED reading lights for the second row seats, 16-colour ambient lighting, a rear entertainment system with a 12.1-inch monitor, a 1,500 W JBL GreenEdge 17-speaker sound system and a console box at the rear of the front armrest box. The Olive Ash woodgrain trim and steering wheel is also unique to the Executive Lounge.

The Toyota Vellfire 3.5 Executive Lounge is priced at RM568,000, but buyers who put down their money now will be able to purchase it at RM498,000, a RM70,000 discount (deliveries start March/April 2016). Too flush for your liking? CHY Autoworld also offers the 3.5 VL that retails at RM538,000, as well as the 2.5 ZG that costs RM368,000.
