The third generation Toyota Alphard and its sibling the Toyota Vellfire has yet to be launched in Malaysia, but we already know what we’re going to be getting as UMW Toyota have released pricing and specifications for the MPVs ahead of the launch.

Today we can show you how the Malaysian spec cars are going to look like – well, 2 out of 3 specs anyway. UMW Toyota exhibited the Malaysian spec Toyota Alphard 3.5 and Toyota Vellfire 2.5 at their Mitsui Outlet Park showroom over the weekend so we took the opportunity to grab some photos.

Missing from these photos is the top of the range Alphard 3.5 Executive Lounge variant.

Toyota Alphard 3.5

The UMW Toyota Motor spec Toyota Alphard goes for RM419,900 on the road including GST and insurance. We’re getting the non-Aero body, but with Malaysian specs this is complemented by Aero wheels which are 18 inch in size (235/50R18 tyres), an inch bigger than the non-Aero wheels for JDM cars.

Exterior-wise, the Alphard gets auto levelling LED headlamps (with cornering lamps and LED DRLs), a rear spoiler with integrated LEDs, fog lamps (front and rear), sunroof and rear cabin moonroof.

On the inside, which is colour-coded in beige, you get 7 seats in a 2-2-3 configuration, with the middle row featuring captain seats with an Ottoman leg rest. The first row passenger seat gets an Ottoman leg rest as well. Both sliding doors are powered, and so is the boot.

Other interior kit includes a seven-inch DVD-AVN touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and eight speakers as well as a four-spoke, leather-wrapped, multifunction steering wheel, dressed in brown wood-grain. There’s also a 10.2 inch rear entertainment screen that folds down from the roof with a remote control and wireless headphones. The air conditioning system is triple-zone with separate blower and temp controls for the rear. It also has Panasonic’s nanoe ionisation technology.

The Alphard’s 3.5 litre V6 engine has 271 PS at 6,200 rpm and 340 Nm at 4,700 rpm. Power goes to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox with sequential shifter.

Toyota Vellfire 2.5

As for the Toyota Vellfire (RM355,000 OTR with insurance), it has a smaller engine – a 2.5 litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder engine with 180 PS at 6,000 rpm and 235 Nm at 4,100 rpm. As for transmission, a CVT drives the front wheels.

Like the Alphard, it gets the non-Aero body but has its wheels upgraded an inch to 18 inch Aero wheels when compared to JDM spec. Exterior kit is the same as the Alphard – auto levelling LED headlamps (with cornering lamps and LED DRLs), a rear spoiler with integrated LEDs, fog lamps (front and rear), sunroof and moonroof.

Interior specs equipment is the same as well, but the Vellfire interior is finished in black instead (but with grey headliner), with black wood grain for the interior trim.

The Alphard 3.5 Executive Lounge (RM519,900 OTR with insurance) which is not shown here adds on equipment, as you’d expect. The seats are now lined in more premium semi-aniline leather, and this is available in either beige or black. Second-row seating is made up of VIP powered seats with a more elaborate Ottoman function as well as seat air-conditioning.

The Executive Lounge also features an upgraded eight-inch DVD-AVN infotainment unit with a 17-speaker JBL audio system, and other novelties include an electro multi-vision (EMV) display and a VIP wood-grain steering wheel.

All Alphard and Vellfire models get seven airbags (front, front side, curtain and driver knee), VSC, traction control, ABS, hill-start assist and parking sensors (front and rear). As for exterior colour options, Luxury White Pearl, White Pearl, Silver Metallic and Black are available for the Alphard, while the Vellfire can be had in Burning Black (deep purple), White Pearl, Silver Metallic and Black.

Of course, being sold by the official distributor here in Malaysia, the Malaysian spec Toyota Alphard and Vellfire come with a five year unlimited mileage warranty.
