    UMW Toyota Motor's Beyond Zero event – running from now all the way to 28-February in Bukit Jalil – is perhaps the single best demonstration of Toyota's multi-pathway mobility strategy our nation has seen thus far, housing multiple interesting concept and production models under one roof. Interspersed among the Camry Hybrids and Mirais is this pair of the 2024 Toyota Alphard Hybrid and 2024 Toyota Vellfire Hybrid; the first time electrified variants of these popular people movers are seen in Mal

    Fully imported (CBU) from Japan, UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) launched both the all-new Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire back in October. Even if there are allocations of several hundred units for Malaysia, the number of orders has been quite overwhelming. In fact, if you reserved your brand-new official Alphard/Vellfire with Toyota, you may only receive it within a year or two. Those looking at the recond route might also see a similar situation as the AH40 Alphard and Vellfire see similar long wa

  • The Toyota Vellfire Spacious Lounge is a Lexus LM that's been converted back into a Toyota

    Limousines are great and all but in this modern age, luxury MPVs are the new status symbol of the rich and famous. Toyota pioneered the segment with the Alphard and Vellfire that eventually led to the pinnacle of these luxo-boxes on wheels, the Lexus LM. Now, Toyota has somewhat taken the LM and transformed it back into a Vellfire in the form of the Vellfire Spacious Lounge concept. Say what now? Well, it’s not precisely that but it’s not much of a stretch to explain it that way either. The Lexu

  • Patriotism takes a back seat, 2023 Toyota Alphard wins over proud Koreans - 1-year waiting list, 500 orders in 2 weeks

    Due to historical reservations Koreans hold towards Japanese products—stemming from Japan's brutal occupation of Korea during World War 2 and the decades leading up to it—Japanese cars have traditionally received a lukewarm reception in Korea. For example, Honda is largely ignored there. However, Korean buyers rank among the most discerning when it comes to high-end luxury products. They make exceptions for Japanese luxury brands like Lexus. In fact, Korea is probably the only country where Lexu

  • Toyota's Kinto is getting bored, finds a way to make the AH30 Alphard and Vellfire sliding doors close faster

    You know how some cars can be truly fantastic except for one minor detail that you just can’t overlook and it ends up ruining the entire driving experience.
