A New Style For Next Century
For those well-versed in the world of Japanese automobiles, the Toyota Century has long held a distinguished reputation as a luxurious limousine, often commanding prices well beyond the million-HK dollar mark. Now, Toyota is ushering in a new era with the introduction of the Century in an SUV-style iteration, boldly positioning it as a new vehicle for the modern age of SUV mass adoption.
The latest Toyota Century, though shorter in length and categorized as an SUV, remains unequivocally designed to be chauffeur-driven. It embodies the essence of an exclusive vehicle, with a singular focus on providing unparalleled comfort to its passengers, setting it apart from its peers.
Underneath its elegant exterior, the new Century boasts a sophisticated plug-in hybrid system, featuring a robust 3.5-liter V6 engine. However, the Toyota Century’s appeal has never been about performance — it centres on the extraordinary level of passenger comfort it offers, rivalling that of a first-class flight.
Imagine generously proportioned, almost fully reclining flat seats (at a remarkable 77° angle) complete with an electric ottoman, a retractable table, LED reading lights, and an expansive 11.6-inch rear seat entertainment system. Within arm’s reach, you’ll find conveniences like a smartphone pocket, USB charging dock, headphone jack, cup holders, power outlets, and even a built-in refrigerator. To further enhance the experience, a premium 18-speaker sound system envelops passengers in exquisite audio quality.
In the spacious rear of the vehicle, there’s ample luggage space, accommodating up to 340 litres, equivalent to stowing three full-sized golf bags with ease. This exclusive Japanese-only model underscores the notion that being chauffeur-driven is the epitome of luxury. The new Toyota Century seamlessly blends opulence, technology, and sophistication, redefining the standards of automotive excellence for the modern era.
