It will be available in three trim levels in Canada:

  • 2023 Toyota Crown XLE: $45,590

  • 2023 Toyota Crown Limited: $50,990

  • 2023 Toyota Crown Platinum: $59,990

The Crown is a premium sedan that replaces the Avalon as the most expensive sedan in the automaker’s lineup, closing the gap with the more affordable Lexus models.

The new sedan will be offered in three trim levels that feature different equipment levels and one of two available hybrid powertrains.

The entry-level XLE model comes standard with 19-inch wheels, heated cloth-covered front seats, and a 12.3-inch screen for the Toyota Multimedia infotainment system. In addition, all versions of the Crown are equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite of driver assistance features.

The $50,990 Limited trim adds multi-beam LED headlights, a glass roof, leather upholstery, ventilated front and heated rear seats, a JBL premium audio system, rain-sensing wipers, and front and rear park assist with emergency braking.

An available Technology Package also adds the 360-degree camera system and 21-inch alloy wheels.

Both the Crown XLE and Limited are powered by the fourth-generation hybrid powertrain, which combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors to drive all four wheels via a CVT transmission. Toyota didn’t reveal many details about the powertrain, except that it can achieve 41 mpg (5.7 L/100 km) in combined driving. Power is expected to be around 236 horsepower.

The Platinum version carries over the Limited’s features with the addition of an adaptive suspension, an automated parking system, unique 21-inch alloy wheels, and the availability of two-tone paint.

In addition, this model is equipped with the Hybrid MAX powertrain that combines a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine with two electric motors, one on each axle. This results in a combined 340 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a six-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission, this powertrain is capable of accelerating the Crown from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.7 seconds. Toyota says this combination will give the Crown Platinum an average fuel economy of 7.8 L/100 km (30 mpg) in combined driving. This version will start at $59,990.

Unlike the XLE and Limited models, the Crown Platinum will have full-time all-wheel drive thanks to the presence of the rear electric motor. The other two trim levels will only send power to the rear wheels if wheelspin is detected.

The Toyota Crown will begin arriving in dealer showrooms in early 2023.
