2009 Toyota Crown Majesta unveiled

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

The Toyota Crown comes in different models including a hybrid and the high-end Century and Majesta, and in its home market it is considered on par with cars the likes of the BMW 7-Series or the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in terms of technology at least. Today, Toyota has introduced a modified Majesta, the first repeat of the car and considered the safest and most comfortable ever.

Power under the hood for the Majesta is provided by a 4.6-liter V8 unit coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The AWD variant that is available comes with the 6-speed automatic transmission only.

The main revisions on the retiring model is a wheelbase that is 75mm longer and a number of safety elements including the latest Front-side Pre-crash safety system, Pre-crash seatbacks and a rear-seat center airbag.

Standard addition on the car is an electronically controlled air suspension which currently works in combination with Toyota's Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) stability system.

Also coming with the car is a pedestrian detection system that is equipped with night vision setting. In the interior, the car is fitted with wood trim on the steering wheel, shift knob and ornament panel, together with multiple LCD display panels in the front dashboard and a hard drive satellite navigation system.

At the rear compartment passengers are treated with a large 9 inch roof-mounted LCD panel and audio is supplied by a 19-channel amplifier and a 20 speaker stereo system.
