The next-generation Toyota Alphard and Vellfire minivans will soon be making their global debut. The new Toyota Vellfire MPV has just been seen in full production form in photos taken at one of Toyota's Japanese assembly sites. The new Toyota Vellfire will make its premiere throughout the world in the coming days, but it won't be available in India until much later. While the front and back of the new Alphard and Velfire are noticeably different from the current generation, the sides are almost similar to those of the outgoing versions. Both MPVs include a snub nose, but the bumper, grille, and headlights are distinct from one another. The Vellfire's grille has a more typical horizontal slat design, and it extends all the way to the bumper's base. The Alphard's grille has rectangular chrome studs that are spaced farther apart, and the headlights include LED daytime running lights that are segmented as well.
2023 Toyota Vellfire: Design
The new Vellfire's design looks to continue where its predecessor left off. The MPV has an undeniably Vellfire design, yet there are several design variations when you zoom in. The first noticeable change is the elimination of the visible divider behind the driver's door, making the side glasshouse one continuous panel with the big front quarter glass. The MPV has a more luxurious appearance thanks to the blacked-out pillars with chrome trim.
The bumper of the Vellfire is detailed with chrome, and the grille is a more typical horizontal slat design that extends all the way to the bottom of the bumper.
2023 Toyota Vellfire: Interior
Despite the lack of inside photos, the Vellfire is expected to maintain its current lineup of well-equipped trim levels and seating configurations, including the executive lounge package currently offered in the Indian market.
Although the current versions come well-equipped with amenities like captain chairs with Ottoman function, tri-zone air conditioning, a complete digital rearview mirror, ambient LED lighting, cruise control, and more, it is expected that the new models will come with some new equipment on the inside.
2023 Toyota Vellfire: Engine
We anticipate the next-generation Toyota Vellfire's powertrain to be similar to that of the new Lexus LM, with which it shares its TNGA-K chassis. Depending on the market, the new Vellfire will have a variety of power levels for its 2.5-litre petrol-hybrid engine.
