Toyota has unveiled the Century SUV, a brand-new luxury SUV. Before its official launch later in the year, it will be up for order in Japan.

As a luxury sedan, the third-generation Century debuted in 2018. The sedan will continue to be offered alongside the Century SUV, according to reports.

Century SUV

For improved ride comfort and torsional rigidity, Toyota’s new “Century for the next century” uses the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). Additional features include a “luggage compartment separate structure.”

According to the manufacturer, “noise-reducing clear laminated glass is used on the cabin side of the cargo space cargo space separator to properly separate the cabin from the cargo area and achieve the privacy and astounding quietness associated with chauffeur-driven vehicles.”

Exterior

The SUV’s blocky appearance is reminiscent of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. An homage to the vintage Century sedans is made by the design of the front grille, the writing “Century” on the tailgate, and the expertly etched phoenix emblems.

It has split headlamps with two lighting elements per cluster and three large air intakes in the lower apron, which together create a recognizable lighting signature. 20-inch wheels are standard, and 22-inch wheels are also available.

Customers can personalize their Century SUV with the aid of Century Meisters. Customers can select custom designs, according to Toyota’s chief branding officer and head of design, Simon Humphries. The options are limitless and up for discussion, according to Humphries.

Interior

With doors that open to a wide 75-degree angle and automatically retractable side steps, the interior of the Century SUV is its centerpiece. The C-pillars have grips to make entering and exiting easier. Century SUVs can also come with motorized sliding back doors for added uniqueness.

The SUV has two back chairs divided by a large center console and seats four people as opposed to the Century sedan’s five seats. For an airplane-like experience, the seat behind the front passenger can fully recline. There is also a refrigerator, lots of storage, ambient lighting, and touchscreen displays.

The front cockpit of the Toyota Century SUV is “equipped with features and functions that support professional drivers and enhance ease of use.” Instead of packing everything into the large touchscreen, the climate control, seats, and other functions have numerous physical buttons to avoid menus.

The luxury limousine’s features have not yet been disclosed.

Powertrain

A hybridized and twin-turbocharged 3.5 liter V6 petrol engine powers the Century SUV. 406 horsepower (hp) are produced by the plugin hybrid powertrain. In addition to having an electric motor and an E-CVT, it also has E-Four all-wheel drive and an electric motor at the rear axle.

Century SUV

Dynamic Rear Steering (rear-wheel steering) for maneuverability and a Rear Comfort mode that aids the driver in controlling the vehicle to lessen jolts when stopping or changing gears are additional driving features.

Price and Launch

In Japan, the Century SUV costs 25 million yen, or 52 million rupees (5.2 crore). For the first time in many years, the Century will probably be introduced in its SUV from all over the world.

 

Even though it resembles a Rolls-Royce Cullinan oddly enough, it will likely compete with Mercedes Benz GLE, BMW X7, and Audi Q8 in terms of price.
