The Japanese carmaker is planning to dispatch the 2019 Toyota Vellfire with minor alterations. The company made a few changes inside this car in the quest to elevate the driving experience and provide a more gentle ride. Even though the 2018 Vellfire edition propelled a significant overhaul lately, the company is not yet satisfied with how the vehicle boasts its sales in the auto bazaar.
Toyota’s new Vellfire model comes as a 6-seater MPV, which leverages on the underpinnings highlighted by the Alphard. It brings forth a sportier design with updated powertrain which makes the vehicle a little more lightweight than its immediate precursor. Besides, the company has equipped the inbound car with a new engine that creates a clear-cut difference with its core rivals.
2019 Toyota Vellfire – Exterior Design and Interior Cosmetics
The 2019 Toyota Vellfire is coming with a new exterior and interior styling, so it attracts the company’s mainstream enthusiasts. The redesigned Vellfire version has developed to convey two entrance front lights. Its rear fascia reflects the typical looks of a traditional minivan.
The car’s rear lamps, as per our spy images, bring forth an entirely new look. The inbound vehicle retains the same wheelbase as its five-door hatchback counterpart. For that reason, it has adequate space to host up to eight passengers in comfort. The Japanese manufacturer intends to discharge the 2019 Toyota Vellfire with small changes in the car’s interior segment.
2019 Toyota Vellfire – Comfortable Cabin
Given that the incumbent model received a comprehensive overhaul a year ago, odds are Toyota is unlikely to change a lot of things on this vehicle. But first, we expect the new Vellfire to become much roomier inside so that its occupants can have a steady and comfortable ride. It also comes with numerous tech elements, including Universal Series Buses, Bluetooth connectivity, excellent audio speakers, and much more.
2019 Toyota Vellfire – Powertrain and Transmission
A report has emerged confirming Toyota’s intentions to introduce a variety of engines in the 2019 Toyota Vellfire. The first possible one is a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle drivetrain that generates about 150 horsepower. The supposed engine pairs with a six-speed Shiftmatic transmission. This system gets hooked with two electric-powered motors. The 141-hp motor at the front and 67-hp motor at the rear. Combined EPA fuel economy ratings stand at 45.6 mpg.
The second powertrain produces a higher horsepower than the first one. It comes as a 2.5-liter engine with nearly 180 horses. Also, it gets connected to a Sequential Shiftmatic gearbox system alongside a CVT seven-speed sport I system. These combinations enable the vehicle to hit nearly 30.1 mpg EPA fuel economy ratings.
The third engine is a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This one will unleash up to 276 horsepower and 22.3 mpg combined fuel economy ratings. This engine comes with a mix of 6-speed ECT and Sequential Shiftmatic transmission system. This drivetrain will become the most powerful one in the lineup.
