Toyota Alphard India: Is it Worth the Wait?
With the launch of Toyota Alphard in India, the country will get Toyota’s premium, luxury car that is one of the most-loved Toyota cars in the UK and elsewhere. Typically, the car will be an 8-seater luxury SUV that will carry on the legacy of comfort and convenience that has been established over the years. This Toyota Alphard review will help you take right decision when it comes to the purchase of this vehicle.
Choice of Engine
The Toyota Alphard will offer only a petrol option and come with two engine capacities – a 4-cylinder 2.4-litre and a V6 3-litre. The car will come with automatic transmission and all the variants will come in 2 or 4-wheel drive options. Based on your specific requirements and driving styles, you can choose the option that suits you best.
However, to give a comparison, the V6 3-litre option will be more preferable only for the fact that the V6 provides a satisfying burble, which is synonymous with the grandeur and class of the vehicle. Of course, the 2.4-litre variant will be cheaper on maintenance but the true feel of luxury will be the best with the other option and there won’t be a huge difference in the Toyota Alphard pricein India between the two options. So, make sure you check out both the options before you make a decision.
Talking about the Toyota Alphard price, a major chunk of it will be towards the interiors of the car. The car will be flexible when it comes to the seating of the passengers. The car will also come with a feature where the seating layout could be arranged to suit the needs of the passengers. The car will have huge interiors is an understatement. The boot space will be big enough for even a chest freezer.
The Toyota Alphard India will have a high level of comfort. Apart from the space for 8 people to seat comfortably, power sliding rear doors, there will be the dual zone climate control. The good thing about this latest feature will be that there will be separate controls for the rear passengers. Other luxurious features in the car will include adjustable armrests, dim lights and AV screens with headphone sockets. Some models of the Alphard Toyota will come with power curtains.
Driving a Toyota Alphard will definitely be joyous. The burbling V6 engine will further enhance the overall driving experience. While all of this will be there, the only thing that can make you think again about the car is its fuel consumption. Also, the overall looks of the car won’t be too impressive. While the interiors of the car will be quite distinguished, the exteriors will be rather average-looking.
As a conclusion, if a luxury SUV is your idea of a car, then the upcoming Toyota Alphard India is your answer. The hugely comfortable and flexible seating arrangements, and powerful yet smooth drive will make this vehicle ideal as a campervan as well as for your everyday drive!
