This latest flavor, with no initial plans for sale in the U.S., is to be first offered only with a hybrid
The SUV has a blunt front end with an assortment of thin headlights and a low hatchback silhouette shaping the rear and a fairly steep rear window.
At 185.8 inches long, 74 in., wide, and 61.6 in. tall, the Crown Sport is shorter, wider, and taller than the 2024 Crown (196.1 in. / 72.4 in. / 60.6 in.) sold in the U.S. The wheelbase measures 109 inches, about three inches shorter than that of the regular model. It rolls on 21-inch wheels, a rear independent suspension and has rear-wheel steering.
The Crown Sport is available in Japan with two powertrain options. One is the regular hybrid powertrain with a 2.5-liter inline-four featured in the U.S.-spec Crown, where it rates in at 236 hp combined. The other powertrain is a new plug-in hybrid setup using the 2.5-liter inline-four.
The Crown Sport introduces Toyota’s “sound-regulating ceiling,” which is advertised a helping to maintain a quieter cabin environment. There’s a choice of six exterior colors and five bi-tone combinations. These choices can be paired with the new interior option in Sand Brown and Black.
