New 2023 Toyota Crown Hybrid

Owned the Toyota Crown Limited for about a month now, have about 600 miles on it. So far everything is going good. Car averages about 40-45 mph, even with some highway driving at 70+ mph. I got about 539 miles out of the first tank of gas. When I fill up it shows 600+ mile range. 14.5 gallon tank. Rides good. Has lots of options I wanted in a car. Heated seats, heated steering wheel, cooled seats. Leather. Smooth ride. Cons so far: is the engine is loud in the driver compartment. Luxury style car with noisy compartment. Revs hard, has power but probably undersized. Also, only 1 key fob so far due to chip shortage One last thing is the remote start. If you start your car from house and you get to your car, open the door, the vehicle shuts off. Probably one of the dumbest ideas. It is supposed to help with anti-theft. However, if I have the fob in the house and start the car, they can’t get very far it’s anywhere.

Can’t go wrong with Toyota.

Great car. I had a Camry and a 4Runner. It’s like a combination of both. I have the Limited edition - great features with an awesome interior. Sports mode has great acceleration not too powerful but good for a car of its size. Exterior has a futuristic design. The car drives and handles great. JBL system provides quality sound. Overall you can’t go wrong with this car. Plus it’s a hybrid and you get 41 on the highway.

I have about 1,600 miles on the 2023 Crown Limited, so the hybrid-4 cylinder, no turbo. Heavy metal (AKA gray) exterior with the black interior. They make a black interior with brown inserts, not my taste. Pros: -Sport mode is sporty enough for me, acceleration is shocking for a 4 banger. -ECO mode is economical. -Handling is great with the AWD. -No traditional battery, no starter, no alternator. It has the big battery and 2 motors (MG1 & MG2, go down that Youtube rabbit hole with caution) that charge it with either regenerative braking or simply the rotation of the wheels. -Ride is good, not necessarily luxurious, but quite nice. The wheels/tires on the platinum made it noticeably rougher. -I haven't seen another one on the road. When people see it, this is pretty much everyone's comment: "wow, I like it. What is it? It's sporty." So, yeah, it's a "sedan", 4 doors and a trunk, but a pretty nice looking one made by Toyota. -Also, big for me, is that the Crowns are manufactured exclusively in Japan. Maybe a big deal, maybe not, but I've read that Japan-manufactured 'yotas are better-built (ex: 4Runners). -Weird pro, the console opens on both sides (towards the driver or towards the passenger). -Actual buttons for the fan/temp/seat temps and a real volume knob. I think this is a theme for most Toyotas / Lexuses (or whatever the plural for Lexus is). -The touchscreen is bright and fairly intuitive. -I'm 6'3" and fairly long-torsoed (or however you say I'm long from waist to the top of my cranium), and I fit. There's not schoolbus-like headroom, but I don't notice it being cramped. -Parking sensors are crazy awesome; it has zones and shows you getting closer to an object...in the last zone it really lets you know that you're about to hit something. -MPG 47.4. Yeah, I'm trying to inch that number up, just for fun. Believe the published MPG (42/41 city/hwy), you'll get that or better. UPDATE, after 8,000 miles of driving, I'm right at 44.8mpg. Still better than it claims, but down slightly. Highway driving at high speeds is what drops it a little bit. Cons: -No sunglasses holder, weird -Should be a hatchback, already looks like one -Panoramic glass should open! I love a sunroof...a glass roof is fine UPDATE: the trunk and trunk opening are just to small. Needs a hatchback style rear end and a slightly larger trunk space. That's it! Everything else has exceeded expectations. For comparison, I drove: Audi A5/A6, Volvo S90 Inscription, Subaru Outback, Toyota highlander & Tundra. The Crown is compelling, takes 87 octane (no ethanol for me though) and looks nice / drives nice. Not going to thrill you, but for some reason it makes me smile. Hope you enjoy yours.

Test drive before you say anything!

After 2 Camrys and 2 Avalon Hybrids and finally the Crown Limited AWD, how can’t I be happier with this ultimate upgrade! Ride comfort is much better, higher visibility, 41/42 MPG with added benefit of AWD. YouTube Crown bashers probably are not familiar with Toyota’s reliability, cost of ownership and resale value. They don’t know what they’re missing. Crown is Toyota’s flagship before Lexus happened. Good luck finding one in your area.

Careful in that sport mode!

That sport mode will pin you to the seat. Love this sporty sedan and am averaging between 41-47mpg so far at 70mph. For an all wheel drive 4 cylinder this car has some get up and go. Great quality interior and ride comfort. Great job Toyota!
