Sales of the current AH30 generation Toyota Alphard / Toyota Vellfire twins will end next year in 2022. The next generation 2022 model however, will be rationalized into just one model, only the Toyota Alphard. It also means that the current AH30 generation Toyota Vellfire will be the last.
To commemorate the end of the Alphard / Vellfire twins, Toyota will be introducing a final edition model of sorts for the Alphard / Vellfire twins.
Sources in Japan say that the upgraded final edition Alphard / Vellfire will feature some upgraded features, but details are lacking.
The upgraded Alphard / Vellfire will go on sale in Japan in May 2021 and since Malaysia imports our Alphard and Vellfire from Japan, it is safe to say that the upgraded model will also be launched in Malaysia.
UMW Toyota Motor currently sells the Toyota Alphard in only one 3.5-litre variant, priced from RM 446,609. It comes equipped with the full suite of Toyota Safety Sense suite of ADAS features, as well as Android Auto/Apple CarPlay-compatible 8-speaker infotainment with a 10.2-inch rear entertainment screen.
The Toyota Vellfire is priced cheaper, as it is sold with a smaller 2.5-litre engine, priced from RM 367,881. It still comes equipped with the same full suite of Toyota Safety Sense features.
Meanwhile, Lexus Malaysia will be launching the Lexus LM soon. Bookings are now opened, with prices starting from RM 1.15 million.
