2024 Toyota Vellfire in Malaysia full gallery – 182 PS, 235 Nm 2.5L NA; RM438k, 100k cheaper than Alphard

Here’s a full gallery of fourth-generation Toyota Vellfire, which was launched in Malaysia last October alongside the Alphard. Priced at RM438,000 on-the-road without insurance, the premium MPV is only offered in one variant powered by a naturally-aspirated petrol engine.

Said engine is a 2AR-FE 2.5-litre inline-four with Dual VVT-i making 182 PS (180 hp or 134 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 235 Nm of torque at 4,100 rpm. Drive goes to the front wheels via a Super CVT-i gearbox with seven virtual ratios in the manual mode – the top speed is 170 km/h and claimed fuel consumption is 9.1 l/100 km.

Now based on GA-K version of Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), the new Vellfire isn’t that much bigger than its predecessor as it still needs to fit standard automated parking systems in its home market of Japan. As such, it measures 5,005 mm long, 1,850 mm wide, 1,950 mm tall and keeps a wheelbase of 3,000 mm.

Visually, the Vellfire is set apart from its (more expensive and turbocharged) sibling by a different front grille with horizontal chrome bars and large faux side intakes leading to the fog lamps. The Vellfire’s rear also sports a specific taillight signature and there’s a chrome chin for the lower apron.

On the inside, both MPVs share an identical dashboard design and seven-seat layout, the latter in a 2-2-3 configuration with executive chairs in the second row as well as a third-row bench that looks more suited for two people.

Standard exterior equipment for the Vellfire include 19-inch alloy wheels (with 225/55 profile tyres), tri-LED headlamps, sequential turn signals, cornering lamps, daytime running lights, front and rear fog lamps and a fixed panoramic glass roof.

The list continues with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 14-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 15-speaker JBL sound system, 64-colour ceiling ambient lighting, keyless entry and start, powered roof and window sunshades, a power-adjustable steering wheel, triple-zone automatic air-conditioning (with vents for second and third rows), power-sliding doors, telematics as well as front and rear dashcams.

Synthetic leather is used to upholster the seats, which are powered at the front with memory function for the driver. The second-row executive seats are also powered and come with heating and ventilation functions as well as a side table, but they aren’t as fancy as the Alphard’s Executive Lounge seats that come with a touch control panel, massage function and individual ottoman.

In terms of safety and driver assistance systems, the Vellfire gets the Toyota Safety Sense suite which includes functions such as Pre-collision System (with autonomous emergency braking), Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Road Sign Assist and Adaptive High-beam Assist. Other features are a blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, Parking Support Brake, a tyre pressure monitor and the usual array of passive systems (ABS, VSC, traction control, etc.).

    • Malaysia buy 10 year old used model from Japan. Cannot afford new ones.
      New KIA EV9 cheaper by RM100k due to no import tax. . Even more gadgets and luxury. Only problem is it’s a EV.

    It would be a lot cheaper if it is CKDed here.

    I don’t understand how UMWToyota is doing its business in Malaysia. Model as high volume as Alphard/Velfire, Harrier they didn’t CKDed it here.

    As well as the Lexus cars, it should be CKDed here. That way Lexus can easily beat the sales of BMw and Merc vehicles in Malaysia.

    The sales of these models, justified the investment needed for CKD.

  • A car this size whose job is to carry a whole generation of family members should be turbocharged or at least 3litres

    Most ppl incl myself up to a few years ago, didn’t know the difference and thought vellfire maybe more ex v alphard. Better save that 100k.
    Both are menaces, should pay special deposit 100k to jpj for all the problems they cause, any issue deduct from their deposit. Charge them double the unsubsidized fuel price. When i see v/a on road i immediately slow down in front of them make them go cray flash light zigzag it’s fun when they flash other cars i purposely go behind them flash them even more in my Merc highway justice

  • i like S-Class and 7 series’ comfort too.

    but i had prefer this for daily and long journey drive.
    a proper business class space and comfort,
    a proper 2+1 Vehicle for a proper 2nd row,
    not 1+1 row Vehicle.

    Malaysian loves their minivans but this too underpowered….180hp & 235nm of torque. Fully loaded it will struggle. Vans like this need at least 400nm to pull it through if fully loaded.

    The 2AR-FE is the 2.5 L that was first released in the RAV4 in the U.S. and Canada in 2008.. I guess some people really don’t mind paying for a 16years old technology; just like owning a new Apple iPhone 3G..

    Not trolling here but being under powered is a feature. That’s one of the main reasons why Toyota lasts so long and their resale value is so high.

    Can’t deny that
