The 2023 Toyota Crown is an all-new large sedan with a rugged design, hefty body cladding, and raised ride height. Part SUV, part large sedan, the Crown arrives as a unique look that hides efficient hybrid powertrains.
Choosing Your Toyota Crown
The Crown is available in three trims: XLE, Limited, and Platinum. Prices range from $41,045 to $53,445 (with destination).
Toyota offers the Crown with a choice of two hybrid powertrains that both have electric motors. All models come with all-wheel drive.
Toyota doesn’t provide torque figures for the Crown, but the sedan’s horsepower figure tells the full story. The base powertrain is geared toward efficiency and comes with two electric motors, while the turbocharged engine adds an additional electric motor for a bump in power. The turbocharged hybrid powertrain is only available on the range-topping Platinum trim.
|Engine Type||Horsepower||Transmission||Fuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)|
|2.5-liter four-cylinder engine hybrid||236 hp||CVT||42/41/41 mpg|
|Turbo 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine hybrid||340 hp||6-speed automatic||29/32/30 mpg|
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
Measuring 196.1 inches the Crown is a replacement for the discontinued Avalon. The Crown offers seating for up to five people with a generous amount of space in both rows. Rear passengers get 37.5 inches of headroom and 38.9 inches of legroom.
The Crown’s sloping roofline eats into overall cargo space, though the fully enclosed trunk is a unique touch. The trunk offers up to 15.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
Every model comes with Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0 suite of driver-assist features. The suite includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, and automatic high-beam assist. Other standard safety features include blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Limited trim gets front and rear parking sensors as standard. A surround-view camera is part of the Advanced Tech Package that costs $2,950.
A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touchscreen are standard on every Crown. It comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless charging pad, six audio speakers, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and Bluetooth. An 11-speaker JBL audio system is standard on the Limited trim and higher.
