In the old days, Toyota is primarily known for its utilitarianism in many aspects. One of them being their interiors. They are made to be used and abused while being able to stand the test of time. Most of the time, that means there hasn’t been much style or luxury associated with their interiors. But all that changes with the new Toyota Crown 2023.
The Crown succeeded not only in blurring the lines between crossover and sedan, but also the lines between mainstream and luxury. Much of this can be seen in its interior and how well executed it has been. The Crown is there to prove a lot to Toyota and the interior is one of the most important aspects.
A well-appointed interior is the key to a car’s success. Here’s why the new Toyota Crown ticks that box.
The 2023 Toyota Crown has an interior that propels Toyota into the modern age
Compared to years past, vehicle interiors have changed at an even faster pace. This is largely thanks to the advancement of technology in today’s vehicles. Toyota has always been a slightly lagging brand when it comes to adopting new technologies in vehicles, mainly in an effort to maintain its reputation for impeccable reliability. But nevertheless, their interiors have been more sparse technologically.
The Crown is one of the few frontrunners in the Toyota lineup currently set to change that. It sports a 12.3-inch touchscreen along with a digital gauge cluster which is not only a nice setup but also increases the overall functionality. We have seen a shift in the overall interior design of many automakers from a vertically oriented configuration to a horizontally oriented configuration. This not only looks better, but also gives automotive brands the ability to integrate larger screens and greater flow into the user interface. The Crown accomplished this seamlessly with its large horizontal screens and piano-style buttons below. We’d even go so far as to say that the Crown’s interior strongly resembles its top-end Lexus cousins.
The 2023 Toyota Crown has interior enhancement features
Apart from the general style of the interior, the Crown 2023 offers many material comforts. These enhance the feel inside the crown giving customers what they want most. On the two upper trim levels, a large panoramic sunroof is standard as well as leather upholstery.
On the base XLE grade you get Toyota’s Softex seats which are still a great alternative to traditional leather given that it has a similar feel. Being in the driver’s seat in the Crown means you have access to the usual Toyota safety technology like lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control, but you also get extra features like an advanced parking system. This allows the Crown to park at the push of a button while you sit back and enjoy the beautiful interior.
Toyota is more methodical than quick with many of its products. Sometimes they can be late to the party, but they always deliver a lot. The 2023 Crown and its stunning interior is just one way Toyota proves it.
