UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has exposed additional exterior and interior photographs of the Veloz, which is the upmarket sibling of the all-new Perodua Alza, which was introduced here recently, as nicely as the newest Avanza, which this replaces.
Buy getting for the approaching Toyota seven-seat MPV has previously started as of June 24, 2022, though the organization still isn’t revealing pricing just yet – the sole 1.5 AT variant is estimated to retail at RM95,000 on-the-highway with no insurance, inclusive of income tax.
Like the Alza and Avanza, the Veloz really should be driven by a 2NR-VE 1.5 litre normally-aspirated 4-cylinder petrol motor, with travel heading to the entrance wheels via a D-CVT. We don’t have exact outputs just nonetheless, but in the Alza, the mill serves up 106 PS (105 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.
The vehicle you see in these images is finished in Blue Metallic with a black roof, which is one of two bi-tone possibilities, with the other staying Silver Metallic that is also paired with a black roof. Alternatively, there are a few monotone hues out there, specifically Red Metallic, Metallic Bluish Black (adorable name) and solid White.
Styling cues distinctive to the Veloz include things like a massive hexagonal-shaped grille (with a Y-patterned mesh) that is flanked by T-formed chrome accents for the notable LED fog lamp surrounds. The angular headlamps with sequential indicators are also bridged by a lengthy chrome strip that operates all the way below the clamshell bonnet.
The eager-eyed between you will also detect that the location about the wheel arches protrudes marginally instead than becoming recessed as they are on the Alza and Avanza. Additional variations are found in the rear, as the Veloz’s taillight clusters, which are related in the shape to its siblings, are linked by a trim piece bearing a purple stripe.
In addition, a Veloz script is noticed just above the range plate recess, the corner sections for the reflectors are lesser in dimensions compared to the Alza, and there’s a rugged-hunting faux skid plate in the reduced apron. Ending touches involve skirting in black on the entrance and sides, together with wheels that surface to be equivalent in structure to the 17-inch units (the Alza maxes out at 16s) equipped to the higher-conclude variants of the Veloz in Indonesia and Thailand.
Inside of, you will find a dashboard structure not unlike the Alza’s, despite the fact that the Veloz’s air vents are styled in another way. The ones in the centre are a touch narrower and trapezoidal in condition to accommodate the nine-inch Show Audio infotainment method, which has a wider facet ratio touchscreen and impressively supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Automobile connectivity – the Alza can only do wired AA on the leading-spec AV.
The controls for the single-zone automatic air-conditioning method are also model-particular with round dials, as opposed to button-model controls observed in the Avanza and Alza – the Perodua gets memory features as well.
Somewhere else, the trim on the dashboard and doorway panels are in a shade of light-weight gray rather of black, while the centre console has an open up storage space that an integrated Qi wi-fi charger (the Alza does not get this). This is just ahead of switches for the digital parking brake and automobile brake hold (only the Alza AV gets both equally), as effectively as the gear lever – the latter finding its have encompassing trim style.
Options that are shared with the Alza include the multi-function steering wheel (albeit with the Toyota emblem), 7-inch TFT electronic instrument panel, two USB charge ports for rear passengers and boot space (137 litres with all seats up, 498 litres with the third row folded down).
Security-clever, the Veloz will get the Toyota Safety Perception suite of driver helps as conventional, with described functions currently being Pre-Collision Process (PCS), usually regarded as autonomous unexpected emergency braking, and Adaptive Cruise Command.
Provided its projected selling price tag, which is RM19,500 extra than a leading-spec Alza (RM75,500), we should expect factors like lane centring help, lane holding help, blind place monitoring, entrance departure inform, pedal misapplication command and six airbags much too also be provided as common.
On the mention of charges, should you want the Veloz with a two-tone complete, it’ll expense you an excess RM1,300, and if you want a rear digital movie recorder (dashcam) that is from the Tech-Up equipment catalogue, it is an added RM350. Just about every purchase comes with a 5-calendar year, unrestricted-mileage warranty.
We’ll only get a finish spec sheet when the Veloz is formally introduced here, which we’re expecting will take area quickly. Supplied what’s been presented so much, are you seeking forward to the Toyota 7-seat MPV?
