Toyota Crown comes in three more flavors for global markets

The Crown is Toyota's longest-running passenger car nameplate and one of the automaker's most important vehicles. For the sixteenth generation, Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda wanted to leverage the Crown's best historical and technological assets to drive a Crown brand revolution. We saw the first onslaught in this revolution a few days ago when Toyota debuted the car that will replace the Avalon on our shores. But the Crown is a global car targeting 40 international markets, so engineers developed three more body styles "to meet different needs". Toyota in Japan calls our style the crossover type, although Toyota USA told us it was a sedan. The nomenclature difference might be because one of the other body styles is a proper three-box sedan type, joining the sport type, which looks like a small midsize crossover, and the station wagon type, which looks like a large midsize crossover.
According to the automaker's descriptions, the Sport Type is "a spirited and creative car with easy-to-drive packaging that offers an agile and sporty driving experience." The Estate is "a blend of station wagon and SUV that allows the user to enjoy full-powered driving performance and an active lifestyle in a mature atmosphere." “ developed for those who prefer to be chauffeured.
It seems likely that Toyota will be spreading its new Hybrid Max powertrain, but the automaker hasn't revealed anything about the other models other than looks, so we don't know how big the other three are, nor what will power them. With 15 generations of rear-wheel drive sedans in the past, it is possible for the sedan to run on the rear-wheel drive TNGA-L platform, rather than the front-wheel drive TNGA-K platform used by the crossover type. The latest Crown rode the TNGA-L, as did some Lexus models for sale here. The new Crown sedan is shaped more like the Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell sedan originally expected to be a Lexus, which also uses the TNGA-L. However, this is speculation.
The remaining styles will be rolled out elsewhere over the next 18 months.
