The Toyota Crown is the rebadged Vellfire for the China market.

Toyota has taken us by surprise at the Auto Shanghai 2021 by bringing the new Crown to the motor show. And for the regulars who might mistake it for a sedan, it’s actually a minivan which is sold as the Vellfire in India, just that it wears a new badge in the Chinese market and it has received very subtle cosmetic updates. So essentially it’s a minivan with the legendary Crown logo and there is also a Lexus-badged LM version in some markets. The Crown (Vellfire) is going on sale exclusively in China.

Now speaking of the design first, the overdose of bold chrome detailing continue to be a prominent part of its appearance. It’s on the grille and even the side curtain. The front bumper too has been tweaked, but headlights and DRLs have been positioned identically. Even the profile and rear remains identical to the Vellfire sold in India.
