The third iteration of the Toyota Alphard still sets the benchmark for an exquisitely-styled cabin with an unmatched level of opulence in its class.

Long-haul flights can be gruelling, which makes an upgrade to Business Class worth every penny. With the occassional bad traffic situations in Singapore, it seems that this upgrade makes sense for motorists too.

This is what the third generation Toyota Alphard seeks to deliver - a permanent upgrade to Business Class.

Look closely enough and you will find the new grille design has traces of Lexus' spindle grille

Observers will be quick to know that the Alphard's new design echoes other recent Japan Domestic Models (JDM) such as the Crown.

The car looks decisively more aggressive with the massive chrome grille that extends from the top to the lower part of the bumper while new LED headlamps and fog lamps complete the look.


Complementing the dramatic change at the back are sweeping new taillights and a larger rear windshield. Like before, one cool trick that Toyota still employs is the hidden rear wiper under the upper wing spoiler that makes it look clean and modern.

Measuring 4,915mm x 1,850mm x 1,895mm (L x W x H), the new Alphard is 65mm longer, 20mm wider but 10mm shorter in height as compared to the outgoing Alphard and the dimension changes lend the car more road presence than before.

While several people will like the more futuristic new look, some others will beg to differ. But for us, the real deal lies inside.
