Place your booking now to enjoy the SST exemption
The all-new Toyota Veloz is now open for booking in Malaysia with estimated pricing of RM95,000. The 7-seater premium crossover, which was launched in Indonesia in November 2021 and in Thailand last February, will come as a replacement for the Avanza that has been on the market since 2004.
UMW Toyota Motor has yet to reveal the Veloz in full but we already know how it looks like, thanks to the aforementioned launches. Unlike in Thailand, however, it seems that we’re getting the Veloz in a sole 1.5 AT variant, in locally-assembled (CKD) form.
First things first – powering the Veloz is the familiar 2NR-VE 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, the same unit found in the Perodua Myvi and most likely the upcoming Alza as well. Likewise, outputs are channeled to the front wheels via a CVT with a seven-speed sequential mode.
Equipment-wise, the Veloz will come with LED headlamps with sequential turn signals and daytime running lights, roof rails and 17-inch alloy wheels. Five colours are available, namely Silver Metallic with Black roof, Blue Metallic with Black roof, White, Metallic Bluish Black and Red Metallic.
Inside, niceties include a 9-inch audio display that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 7-inch colour Multi-Info Display (MID), electronic parking brake, multiple USB charging ports, 12V outlets and a Qi wireless charging pad. Cargo space is rated at a generous 498 litres with the third row seats folded down.
On the safety front, the Veloz is fitted with Toyota Safety Sense which comprises a number of driver assistance features including the Pre-Collision System (PCS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). Also on board is Toyota’s Vehicle Telematics System (VTS).
UMW Toyota Motor today announced that the highly anticipated All-New Toyota Veloz is now available for booking. Already launched in Indonesia in November last year, the 7-seater premium crossover’s popularity catapulted it into being the archipelago’s 3rd best-selling car in April 2022. Locally, UMW Toyota Motor will be offering the All-New Toyota Veloz 1.5 variant which has the highest specification and advanced features for the best driving experience.
Equipped with distinctive features, the All-New Toyota Veloz promises “Happiness Inside Out” as it offers the best of both worlds – the confident image of a premium crossover and the family comfort of a larger interior space MPV. This premium crossover is the ultimate family car that empowers its driver and passengers to get the most of their everyday lifestyle while embarking on exhilarating adventures together.
Ravindran. K, President of UMW Toyota Motor described the new 7-seater model as “an excellent quality vehicle which will create an adventure of excitement that customers can be proud of.”
The locally assembled (CKD) All-New Toyota Veloz replaces the Toyota Avanza in the Malaysian B segment MPV market. The Toyota Avanza was introduced locally in 2004 and UMW Toyota Motor has sold over 178,000 units.
Perfect for Malaysians with active lifestyles, the All-New Toyota Veloz presents a dynamic design exuding its strong and progressive premium crossover character, suitable for the generations of today and tomorrow. Its passengers can indulge in the latest Toyota innovation’s premium class interior quality as its remarkably spacious interior is as large as a C-segment MPV, and has flexible seat arrangements for various purposes, providing maximum comfort for all passengers.
Even bigger, bolder and better, the All-New Toyota Veloz driving performance is superior to the previous Avanza with its new front-wheel drive (FWD) platform and suspension. Even with multiple passengers on rough roads, the driver can enjoy a seamless drive experience. This is powered by the All-New Toyota Veloz highly efficient 1.5L engine (2NR-VE) with 7-speed CVT sequential shifting that provides efficient power transmission for smooth and powerful acceleration, while ensuring excellent fuel efficiency.
As part of Toyota’s uncompromising standard for quality in all Toyota vehicles, the All- New Toyota Veloz is built with class-leading advanced Toyota Safety Sense and technology which is superior in its segment. This gives its driver a peace of mind when traveling with loved ones on the road.
The All-New Toyota Veloz is also fitted with an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) which contributes to its effortless drive experience in everyday situations like waiting for the traffic light to turn green or navigating through stop-and-go traffic. As an augmented feature, the premium 7-seater crossover comes with a “Qi” charging pad, a global standard for wireless power and charging. This ensures that the driver and passengers can always stay connected even during long drives. Combined, these features produce a “class-above” quality driving experience and superior ownership value.
