2020 Toyota Alphard and Vellfire open for booking – now with Toyota Safety Sense, RM383k-RM465k on

UMW Toyota Motor has announced that the order books have opened for the 2020 Toyota Alphard and Vellfire, which have been revised with new features as part of a model year update. No exterior or interior changes to the CBU, fully-imported third-gen AH30 facelift, which went on sale here in 2018, but the MPVs now come with additional kit and features.

Leading the list is the inclusion of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS). The suite of driver assist systems include Pre-collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) – All Speed.

Also making its way on is a parking support brake system, which can detect objects in the surrounding areas of the vehicle during the parking process. Should it detect an object in the path of the vehicle, the brakes will be automatically applied and the engine power cut back so that a collision can be avoided.

There’s also a tyre pressure monitoring system as well as a vehicle telematics system. The latter feature uses GPS/GSM connectivity to track the location of the car at all times, and it can also monitor and record vehicle speeds and other operating conditions that the vehicle has been subjected to, with data sent by email to a designated user.

Additionally, the infotainment system has also been upgraded, with a new nine-inch AVX infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity replacing the previous seven-inch DVD-AVN navigation system. The update also introduces a front and rear digital video recorder into the mix.

No changes to the running gear, with the Alphard continuing with the 2GR-FKE 3.5 litre V6 that arrived with the facelift. The mill, which offers 300 PS at 6,600 rpm and 361 Nm of torque between 4,600 and 4,700 rpm, is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Likewise, the 180 PS and 235 Nm 2AR-FE 2.5 litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder unit on the Vellfire, which is mated to a CVT.

The extras however mean that there is also an increase in pricing – the estimated pricing for the 2020 Vellfire 2.5 is RM383,000, which would be an increase of RM21,000 over the current RM362,000. As for the 2020 Alphard, prices will start from RM465,000 for the standard 3.5, which is RM22,000 more than at present. Incidentally, the 3.5 Executive Lounge, which was originally sold here but dropped from the current line-up, is now back in the frame. No mention of pricing for the Executive Lounge as yet.

Five exterior shades are available for the Vellfire and Alphard – Luxury White Pearl Crystal Shine Glass Flake (only for the Alphard 3.5L and 3.5 Executive Lounge), Burning Black CS GF (only for Vellfire 2.5L) and White Pearl CS, Graphite Metallic and Black (available for both Alphard and Vellfire).

      Rich people will buy this. Anyway well done UMW Toyota for giving safety features including Toyota Safety Sense after had already learning from the lesson. Even they had already improved their service as well as quality is good. Now, unlike Honda DRB, they are always sell cars without Honda Sensing. Honda DRB always never bother to improve their service and quality because they always never listen to the customer complaints. All Honda DRB think is that profit is more important than aftersales service and safety

      • Safety comes first! on Feb 07, 2020 at 8:21 pm

        If some think about the performance, I don’t think performance is very important. Even many also said as well. You all should know why?

        Malaysian wants a car with more safety features instead of buying Honda that doesn’t have no advanced safety features. It is because by having more safety features in your car like AEB, it makes you more safer and more comfort, even though you drive fast.

        Obviously in Malaysia, some of them said that some Honda has lack of advanced safety features but giving more performance. This all causes that many people causes accidents on the road? Probably could see Honda cars stopping on highway/road during the accident. Moreover, this also could causes injuries to the drivers and passengers in the car. Yet, Some Malaysians are so brainless of buying Honda with no advanced safety features

        So anyway, that’s the reason why the safety is very very important to all of you before you buy cars.

    Just a glorified VAN. I live in USA for 10 years and this car is called Mobility Personal Van in LA. very rare sight due to unpopular because white feels embarassed being seen in such minivan. It projects lower class image of a person social life. only the airport offer this minivan category and most will opt for Limousine. I m surprised when I moved back to Malaysia to find ppl here see this minivan as luxury. lol.

    Steering is old design. Should use the latest like in RAV4/Corolla for easier ACC. Who use stalk for ACC anyway. That is so Mercedes (in a bad way). One more thing, gear lever should be straight, not slotted (this is so yesteryear). Wood trim is sooo ageist. The rest are fine. Like it a lot!!
