Model in Focus: Toyota AlphardBy marian on August 19th, 2015
People rarely go for MPV’s or minivans, preferring either sedans like the Toyota Vios sold in the Philippines or SUV’s like the Toyota RAV4 instead. In many ways, they have a point, as this particular type of vehicle isn’t known for power or stylishness. Nevertheless, despite what seems to be their lack of pizzazz, MPV’s are automobiles of choice for those who need spacious and comfortable rides.
Luckily for you, the Toyota Alphard not only has huge space and comfort, but it also boasts of elegance and stylishness. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not! Let’s take a look at some of the handsome features that set it apart from other MPV’s (and other types of vehicles for all that matter).
Smooth and Sleek
Unlike the uninspired and plain straight bodies MPV’s usually have, the Toyota Alphard has a streamline rectangular exterior that becomes more defined and curved at the front, giving the car an aerodynamic look and edge. And aside from its curves, the front features a large, tough-looking grille and sleek, aquiline headlights, giving the Alphard a commanding aura. The rear has also been redesigned to make the Alphard look just as elegant at the back as it is at the front.
If you want a powerful car, a good and typical choice would be an SUV. However, if you’re also looking for both space and comfort, then the Toyota Alphard would be a better match for you.
Equipped with a Toyota V6 engine, the third most powerful combustion engine configuration used by the company and other commercial cars, you can be assured that you and your passengers can get wherever you have to be swiftly and smoothly for as little fuel as possible.
Lap of Luxury
The Toyota Alphard is definitely for you if anything less than riding in class won’t do. Its seats, clad in leather and outfitted with Ottoman leather, ensure comfort, durability, and style. And to add to the elegant ambiance, the ceiling is equipped with a 16-hue illumination, allowing you to adjust the lighting according to your preferences.
In addition, for those seemingly long drives, there is that convenient touch-screen entertainment that is easy to access and control anytime. And lastly, the interiors are spacious enough, so you can be assured that you and your passengers can be seated comfortably with more than enough leg space.
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a car is safety, and the Toyota Alphard is not one to compromise such a vital part of driving.
Just like many of Toyota’s creations, the Alphard features surround airbags to protect passengers from the impact of strong collisions, and state of the art safety systems that also assist in car movement such as the anti-lock braking system (ABS), vehicle stability control (VSC), hill-start assist control (HAC).
The Toyota Alphard is a rising name, and rightfully so, thanks to its stylish looks, great power, efficiency, and comfort. Don’t get left behind—get your own now!
