2015 Toyota Vellfire 3.5 Executive Lounge now available in Malaysia – grey import, priced at RM568k

2015-toyota-vellfire-executive-lounge-malaysia- 001

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.

          No van can cost RM600k. All the more when the van is 2nd hand. These AP holders bring really run down vehicles from EX-Rental companies.

          This car should be at the most RM200k. Buta buta the AP holder is making RM350k clean profit.

        Don’t treat Malaysians stupid la. We are not stupid.

        This is all MAI fault for letting the AP holders get away with selling moving coffins to us at half a million.

        Just buy a Toyota Liteace surf for RM5k from the Pasar Malam guy. Go to Gintell, buy the Massage seats at RM3 each. Sometimes got offer. Buy 1 Gintell get another Gintel free.

        Then it becomes your Vellfire

    Best luxury MPV you can find in the market that comes with good reliability and RV.

    Look, when you sell a Toyota, there is no need to mention about safety features. People will buy it because we all know that it will come with minimum of 2 airbags and ABS+EBD as standard.

    Only kimchi cars will need to highlight about the safety features.

    • Mohd Zaini Abdul Khalib on Nov 20, 2015 at 9:09 pm

      Agreed, the best in the market. Then again, it is only available on the grey market whereas the ones available from the official distributor seriously lack safety features as compared to other brands but UMW still charges hefty prices for them. Yea, one can talk about the resale value for this till the cows come home but not so much about the warranty and after sales services as UMW Malaysia do not cater for grey market vehicles.

        Hard to justify brand new since it’s grey imported, unregistered in Malaysia to be precise.

        Here in Japan the real fresh from oven Executive Lounge is sold for about 7,000,000 yen (cheapest spec starts from 3,000,000), quality is justified with the price

    That ain’t no 70k discount, it’s 70k off their profit and even at 498k they still make a profit from selling you a used vehicle and they actually still sell you the lower VL spec for 538k! FYI all Toyota cars from Japan have much better safety spec then our local UMW models so this model does have the usual side curtain airbags and what not.

    I sat in the new Alphard in Tokyo last week and I can say that it is a very good car, comfortable as well. I’m a fan of big SUVs and this is a departure for me because for the first time I felt so comfortable being chauffeured around that I fell asleep in less than 10 minutes in the car. It’s that comfy. The one we had was the hybrid and it was silent around city speeds. Power is great although I was more interested in the Ottoman seats. The ambience lighting is also something special, keeps the mood right with the right settings. I don’t know how many airbags were there in the car but I do know at the pillars they have SRS airbags written on it. It’s not as posh as a Merc or a Jag, but the plastics felt more premium than the previous generation and the technology has really come up good this time. A good buy if it reaches our shores if UMW can price it right and maintaining the specs. Loved the experience, thank you to our counterparts in Japan.
