2018 Toyota Alphard – Comfort and Luxury

To be fair, the new 2018 Toyota Alphard looks like a minivan from a distance. But as you get closer, the beauty of the car leaves you mesmerized. What will definitely catch your eye are the sharp headlights that are distinct and unique.

The grille out in the front is different from the ones that we generally see on Toyota creations. The vehicle does look massive and bulky, but with finer and lighter materials being used it is actually light and scores well in the fuel efficiency department. The rear doors, for the sake of convenience, are sliding ones and also more soundproof than before. With rear lights on top of the license plate and a U-shape structure, the rear end has also received a makeover.

Interior Design

The Toyota cars have always been known for their comfort and luxury, and the 2018 Toyota Alphard will exceed your expectations.

The minivan has improved leg-space, and even tall people can easily fit in. However, the Minivans are not known to have leather seats, but Toyota is going to change that notion by providing seats made of elegant leather in all the rows.

Since it is equipped with an aerodynamic design and a sound-dampening system, the noise outside gets canceled ensuring a peaceful and comfortable journey for the 8 passengers that the Alphard can easily accommodate.

There are also several features available in the 2018 Toyota Alphard to keep you entertained. This includes Bluetooth connectivity, parking assistance, a rearview camera and an infotainment system. The passengers can watch different things on different screens as they are not interconnected. How amazing is that!
