UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has discovered far more exterior and inside pics of the Veloz, which is the upmarket sibling of the all-new Perodua Alza, which was released listed here a short while ago, as properly as the latest Avanza, which this replaces.
Get having for the approaching Toyota 7-seat MPV has currently started as of June 24, 2022, while the business however is not revealing pricing just however – the sole 1.5 AT variant is approximated to retail at RM95,000 on-the-street without the need of insurance plan, inclusive of revenue tax.
Like the Alza and Avanza, the Veloz really should be run by a 2NR-VE 1.5 litre in a natural way-aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine, with drive likely to the front wheels by way of a D-CVT. We never have exact outputs just still, 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 car you see in these shots is concluded in Blue Metallic with a black roof, which is 1 of two bi-tone selections, with the other staying Silver Metallic that is also paired with a black roof. Alternatively, there are three monotone hues obtainable, particularly Pink Metallic, Metallic Bluish Black (sweet name) and strong White.
Styling cues exceptional to the Veloz include a substantial hexagonal-shaped grille (with a Y-patterned mesh) that is flanked by T-formed chrome accents for the outstanding LED fog lamp surrounds. The angular headlamps with sequential indicators are also bridged by a prolonged chrome strip that runs all the way underneath the clamshell bonnet.
The keen-eyed amid you will also observe that the area all-around the wheel arches protrudes slightly relatively than getting recessed as they are on the Alza and Avanza. Much more discrepancies are observed in the rear, as the Veloz’s taillight clusters, which are identical in the form to its siblings, are linked by a trim piece bearing a crimson stripe.
In addition, a Veloz script is noticed just earlier mentioned the amount plate recess, the corner sections for the reflectors are smaller in dimensions as opposed to the Alza, and there’s a rugged-seeking faux skid plate in the reduced apron. Ending touches incorporate skirting in black on the front and sides, alongside with wheels that appear to be related in style and design to the 17-inch units (the Alza maxes out at 16s) fitted to the higher-conclusion variants of the Veloz in Indonesia and Thailand.
Within, you’ll locate a dashboard structure not not like the Alza’s, even though the Veloz’s air vents are styled differently. The types in the centre are a touch narrower and trapezoidal in form to accommodate the nine-inch Display screen Audio infotainment method, which has a broader facet ratio touchscreen and impressively supports wi-fi Apple CarPlay and Android Car connectivity – the Alza can only do wired AA on the top-spec AV.
The controls for the solitary-zone automated air-conditioning system are also design-specific with circular dials, as opposed to button-style controls observed in the Avanza and Alza – the Perodua gets memory functions as well.
Elsewhere, the trim on the dashboard and doorway panels are in a shade of gentle gray rather of black, though the centre console has an open storage place that an integrated Qi wireless charger (the Alza doesn’t get this). This is just forward of switches for the electronic parking brake and automobile brake maintain (only the Alza AV receives equally), as very well as the equipment lever – the latter obtaining its possess bordering trim style and design.
Options that are shared with the Alza involve the multi-functionality steering wheel (albeit with the Toyota brand), 7-inch TFT electronic instrument panel, two USB demand ports for rear passengers and boot area (137 litres with all seats up, 498 litres with the third row folded down).
Safety-clever, the Veloz will get the Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver helps as conventional, with described attributes being Pre-Collision Process (PCS), usually regarded as autonomous emergency braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Provided its projected selling price tag, which is RM19,500 additional than a prime-spec Alza (RM75,500), we ought to count on factors like lane centring support, lane retaining assist, blind place monitoring, entrance departure notify, pedal misapplication handle and six airbags much too also be bundled as standard.
On the mention of rates, should you want the Veloz with a two-tone end, it’ll cost you an excess RM1,300, and if you want a rear electronic movie recorder (dashcam) that is from the Tech-Up add-ons catalogue, it’s an further RM350. Just about every obtain arrives with a five-12 months, endless-mileage guarantee.
We’ll only get a entire spec sheet when the Veloz is formally introduced below, which we’re anticipating will get place shortly. Provided what is been offered so much, are you looking ahead to the Toyota 7-seat MPV?
