The exterior design of the 2019 Toyota Alphard has probably been the most unusual feature when it comes to this minivan. The new Alphard will certainly appear more modern and attractive than its predecessor, revealing some serious changes and improvements in terms of styling. Its cubic shape with sharp edges will simply catch everyone’s attention wherever you show up. Some would say that it even looks a bit futuristic. The minivan should also use a lightweight chassis in order to improve its overall performance. Speaking of changes and innovations, most of them will probably be noticed around the front end of this vehicle. For instance, you will find its spindle-like aluminum grille and its redesigned LED headlights. Looking at the side profile, this minivan will stand on 16-inch alloy wheels and get a flat roofline. Its large power-controlled doors will be upgraded as well. In the back part of this unique minivan, you will notice its curvy and unusually-designed LED taillights.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Alphard will perfectly match its exterior and reveal a modern cabin with lots of changes and refreshments made. This minivan will provide three rows of cozy and adjustable seats, covered in fine leather, at least in higher trim levels. Therefore, it will be an excellent choice for your long family trips since it is capable of accommodating up to seven or eight passengers. You trips will be a real fun thanks to its latest infotainment and entertainment system provided on a 9.0-inch touch-screen display. You can expect the next-generation features such as navigation system, climate control, audio system, Bluetooth, USB and Wi-Fi connectivity. You will also feel safe inside this minivan since it will include most of those necessary safety systems and driver assist technologies.
As we have already mentioned in the intro, you can expect a powerful hybrid technology under the hood of the 2010 Toyota Alphard. It has been said that this minivan will combine a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a battery pack. This combination is expected to provide the output of 167 horsepower. When it comes to transmission, it will be mated to a six-speed automatic. Other possible options include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V6, but none of these have been confirmed and we expect more information soon.
2019 Toyota Alphard Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Toyota Alphard should be expected by the end of 2018, probably in summer. The price of this minivan should start around $28,000. Main competitor is Ford Explorer.
