2023 Toyota Crown

Anyone who thinks that crossovers and SUVs have killed the sedan market hasn’t been introduced to the Toyota Crown yet. This captivating vehicle offers two efficient powertrain choices – hybrid and gas-only – and a long list of attractive attributes packaged in a gorgeous four-door body. While a version of the Crown has been sold overseas for many years now, the American market is finally getting a taste of this sporty and upscale full-sized car.

Our Flagship Sedan

The Crown has a lot in common with the ever-popular crossover class, like a tall ride height and standard all-wheel drive. But the Crown’s appearance cuts that signature sedan aesthetic in a significantly modernized way. Let’s delve into the details of this intriguing debuting model.

Trims, Powertrains, and Fuel Economy

Toyota offers the executive-level four-door Crown in XLE, Limited, and Platinum trim levels. The XLE and Limited have the hybrid powerplant, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas-burning engine teamed with two electric motors (the combined system output is 236 horsepower). The top-of-the-line Platinum instead gets a more robust turbocharged 2.4-liter gas-only engine that generates 340 hp. The transmissions are different as well, with the XLE and Limited receiving a continuously variable transmission (CVT) while the Platinum uses a conventional six-speed automatic. As mentioned, all-wheel drive is standard across the board. According to the EPA’s official estimation, the XLE and Limited achieve 42 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway with their gas-electric powertrain, while the strictly combustion-engine Platinum returns an estimated 29 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

Highlighted Standard Features

The XLE boasts some prominent amenities: LED exterior lighting, heated power-folding side mirrors with turn-signal and blind-spot warning indicators, proximity keyless entry, push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, combination SofTex and fabric upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split rear seatback, and 19-inch wheels. On the tech side, it has a 12.3-inch driver information display, wireless phone charging, five USB ports (four USB-C and one UBS-A), and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink.

The proximity keyless entry system in the Limited is enhanced with more features, and the LED headlights are also upgraded. This mid-grade trim also gets a panoramic glass roof, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and precipitation-sensing windshield wipers. The super-elegant Platinum moves up to confident-looking 21-inch wheels and adds smartphone-based Digital Key, an adaptive variable suspension, and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Active Safety Aids

Toyota Safety Sense 3.0, the automaker’s suite of advanced driver-assist technologies, is standard in every 2023 Crown. This comprehensive package bundles forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, adaptive cruise control, and road sign assist. Each trim also gets safe exit assist, a rear-seat reminder, and proactive driving assist (this provides extra braking force during cornering or when the car is in close proximity to obstacles). The Limited and Platinum add front and rear parking assist with automatic braking, and while a surround-view monitor is standard on the Platinum, it’s optional for the Limited. The Platinum also comes with Advanced Park, Toyota’s automatic parking system.

Multimedia

All trims have an infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, SiriusXM satellite radio, and access to Toyota connected services, which includes cloud navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, remote diagnostics, and emergency support services. While a six-speaker audio system is standard in the XLE, the higher-priced trims are equipped with a more advanced 11-speaker JBL system with a subwoofer.
