Athlete is 3.5million yen base, GS250 is 5.5 million. Same engines.

And this new one looks a lot better imho, even if it is just an refresh, its good... better than before. A little bit too into your face but so what. Before it was a bit stale looking. Weird rear lights but nice front.

We will see how this new one sells... I think it will sell like crazy in Japan, not just because of looks but also this new hybrid engine... right now most of the cars sold in Japan are hybrid.

Then what is this? This is from the brochure that was leaked a few moments ago. Isn't this the new Crown interior?
It has Crown logo as well & if you look closely at the outer mirror from this interior, it matches the shape of it from exterior of this new Crown. While the "old" one is bit rounder.

That's the interior from the Crown Majesta. The Crown Royal/Athlete slot below the Majesta.

I'm very sure that's not the Crown Majesta interior because it shares the same interior with Athlete & Royal Series but maybe with different trims & more individual options.

Thank you for the confirmation. ;)
I think Response has some other images of this new Crown but need to be log in first. Maybe anyone can help with this? :)

Toyota, you have to DESIGN cars...not STYLE them. Design is all about proportion and nuance. This is just a standard, conservative sedan that they've thrown a whole bunch of "stylization" onto. It's horrendous and tasteless.
