2020 Toyota Alphard and Vellfire Now Open for Booking
UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has announced the pre-launch booking for the upgraded 2020 Toyota Alphard and Vellfire. Fully imported from Japan, the premium MPVs will go on sale with prices starting from RM383,000 for the Vellfire and RM465,000 for the Alphard.
In line with UMWT’s 360-T New Brand Experience Strategy that emphasizes Safe-T and Connectivi-T, both models are now equipped with Toyota Safety Sense, along with a host of new safety and connectivity features:
- Parking Support Brake System
- 9-inch AVX Infotainment System with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Ready Connectivity
- Front & Rear Digital Video Recorder (DVR)
- Vehicle Telematics System (VTS)
- Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is a suite of advanced systems that provide driver assistance to avoid accidents or reduce their severity if they occur. These include Pre-collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) – All Speed.
With Parking Support Brake System, drivers have the support of an intelligent parking system to detect objects in the surrounding areas of the vehicle during the parking process. Should any object be detected, the brakes will be automatically applied and the engine power cut back so that collisions can be avoided. Even if a collision does occur, the early action of the system can reduce damage.
Besides the Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) that enables the driver to view all round the vehicle, the front and rear DVRs constantly record the views ahead and behind. In the event of an incident and dispute, the recordings would be useful evidence for the vehicle owner.
The Vehicle Telematics System (VTS) is a connectivity feature that uses GPS/GSM to track the location of the car at all times. This can aid recovery by the police if the vehicle is stolen. 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.
As for appearance, both the Alphard and Vellfire can be had in White Pearl C, Graphite Metallic and Black. Luxury White Pearl CS GF is available exclusively for the Alphard 3.5 Executive Lounge and Alphard 3.5L, while Burning Black CS GF for the Vellfire 2.5L.
As with all other models imported by UMWT, owners of the Vellfire and Alphard will enjoy a full factory warranty and available of replacement parts when required. Aftersales support is also assured with personnel trained to service the models using the necessary special tools and equipment.
