The Toyota Crown Signia 2025 features a hybrid powertrain.
Only one version is available in Canada, the Limited.
Its arrival on the Canadian market is scheduled for summer 2024.
Having introduced the Crown sedan to its catalog for the 2023 model year, Toyota is now doubling down by adding an SUV version. This new model will replace the Toyota Venza.
What are the features of the Toyota Crown Signia 2025?
The Toyota Crown Signia SUV 2025 is based on the TNGA-K platform, like the Crown sedan, and is assembled in Japan.
The dashboard features a 12.3-inch touchscreen with Toyota’s latest infotainment system. Under the driver’s eyes is a 12.3-inch instrument cluster.
The Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 package comes as standard, including pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assistance, dynamic radar cruise control with full speed range, lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, automatic high beam and proactive driving assistance. If you opt for the Technology Package, you’ll also get traffic jam assistance.
Like the Toyota Venza, which will bow out at the end of 2024, the Crown Signia can accommodate five occupants.
What engines are available with the Toyota Crown Signia 2025?
With this new model, Toyota is implementing a unique hybrid powertrain strategy. The Crown Signia SUV is powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motor-generators. Together, they produce 243 hp. The automaker claims fuel consumption of 6.5 L/100 km combined. The Crown Signia comes with four-wheel drive as standard.
It can tow a load of 2,700 lbs.
When will it hit the market?
The 2025 Toyota Crown Signia is scheduled to arrive in Canadian dealerships in the summer of 2024.
How much will it cost?
For the time being, Toyota has not disclosed the selling price of the 2025 Crown Signia SUV. Based on the price of the 2024 Toyota Venza Limited ($54,801.50), which has a similar format, engine and mandate, we estimate that the price of the 2025 Toyota Crown Signia SUV will be around $57,500.
What do we think of the 2025 Toyota Crown Signia?
With the information we have, we think the Crown Signia will be a good replacement for the Venza. On the other hand, we’ll have to make sure we can supply enough of the country’s dealers to ensure its success.
Mechanically, we remain on familiar ground. This hybrid powertrain shines with its very attractive performance and high efficiency.
As for the quality of finish and on-board materials, the Crown sedan bodes well for the future.
