Electronically controlled air suspension, standard on all models, provides comfortable handling through the advanced control of vehicle roll. The suspension system receives cornering information and accumulated road surface-difference information from the navigation system and then optimizes shock-absorber damping force to enhance handling, cruising stability and ride quality.

Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), which coordinates control of drive power, steering and brakes, comes standard on all models to ensure excellent vehicle stability and preventive safety performance even on slippery road surfaces.

The use of noise-reducing glass and optimal body-structure design, together with best placement of vibration-controlling and sound-blocking materials, achieves outstanding interior quietness.

Toyota Crown Majesta facelift Safety

The TMC-developed, world-first Front-side Pre-crash Safety System (part of overall Pre-crash Safety System) uses millimeter-wave radar to detect probable front-side collisions at intersections with good visibility.

The TMC-developed, world-first Pre-crash Seatbacks bring reclined rear seats to an upright position when the vehicle’s Pre-crash Safety System detects a high probability of a front- or rear-end collision, thereby positioning rear occupants appropriately to lessen injuries caused by impact.

A stereo camera can detect pedestrians in front of the vehicle, with a warning displayed to the driver when necessary.

The “Night View” system uses a near-infrared camera to display difficult-to-see pedestrians, objects and sections of the road in front of the vehicle. The system also comes with a special pedestrian detection and display function.

The vehicle employs an advanced Global Outstanding Assessment (GOA) collision-safety body.

Ten SRS airbags, including rear-seat side airbags, are standard on all models.

Toyota Crown Majesta facelift - Driver Support

The advanced car navigation system facilitates the entering and exiting of highways. Using road-map data, system enables smooth acceleration when merging into highway traffic from on-ramps or service areas by controlling gear-change timing, as well as increasing engine braking for smooth deceleration when exiting highways or approaching tollbooths System uses road-map data to inform driver of upcoming stop signs, issuing warning if driver is late in decelerating; navigation-system-linked brake-assist function supports driver in emergency braking, helping reduce vehicle speed

The Intelligent Parking Assist system uses ultrasonic sensors installed in the front of the vehicle to detect parking-space parameters. The system then helps the driver when parallel parking or when backing into the parking space by informing the driver when to turn the steering wheel and where to start backing up.

Product lineup aims to satisfy all occupants

The number of trim grades in the series has been increased from five to six.

The Type A “L Package” includes Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), which optimizes the angle of the front wheels in relation to steering wheel turn and vehicle speed, thereby enhancing driving pleasure by providing excellent handling response in line with the driver’s intent.

The four-seat Type G “F Package” provides a safe and comfortable rear-seat space.

One of total of 11 SRS airbags in vehicle is world’s first SRS rear-seat center airbag, which was designed to lessen secondary injuries caused by rear-seat passengers colliding with each other in side-on collisions

Controls for such functions as air conditioning, audio and seat-reclining are all located on large, rear-seat, center console

Rear “air seats” can blow warm or cool air, while left rear seat boasts automatic leg rest that allows leg extension and comfortable support for passenger

Toyota Crown Majesta facelift - Environmental impact reductions

Efforts were made to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. The Type A model achieves a fuel efficiency of 9.4km/l (CO2 emissions: 247g/km). The Type G, Type G “F Package”, Type C and Type A “L Package” all meet the 2010 fuel efficiency standards specified by the Japanese Law Concerning the Rational Use of Energy. In addition, all vehicles in the series achieve emissions levels 75% lower than the 2005 standards under the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Approval System for Low-emission Vehicles.

An Eco Driving Indicator that lights up to signify fuel-efficient vehicle operation and an Eco Zone Indicator that shows throttle use aim to raise driver awareness toward environmentally friendly driving. Both are standard on all models.

Toyota employed its Eco-Vehicle Assessment System (Eco-VAS)???a comprehensive environmental impact assessment system???to efficiently achieve overall reduction of environmental impact throughout the vehicle’s lifecycle.

A review of the materials, processing methods, and adhesives used for interior parts resulted in a reduction in the amount of volatile organic compounds, such as formaldehyde. The review also helped reduce the sometimes discomforting odors emitted from such materials to below the values outlined in the JAMA2 “Vehicle Cabin VOC Testing Methods (for Passenger Cars)”, which are voluntary industry standards.
