Roll in style with the updated Toyota Alphard


The deluxe van from Toyota gets a makeover for 2018, now with a new emblem sitting atop a striking chrome grille.

Inside, the 2018 Alphard two-tone black and flaxen color scheme is made even more luxurious with ventilated/heated seats for the front row, powered seat adjusted for the second-row seats, a new instrument cluster, and a revised infotainment system with DVD playback and 8 speakers.

Convenience is also a priority in this updated version. It comes with the handy Start & Stop functionality along with Sequential Front & Rear signal lamps. It also has a digital rearview mirror with camera.

For safety, it has seven SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, stability control with Hill Start Assist.

The 2018 Alphard is powered by a 3.5L dual VVT-i gas engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. That powerplant produces 296hp and 361Nm. It is available in three colors—Steel Blonde Metallic, Black, and Luxury White Pearl—for P3,580,000. You need to fork over an additional P15,000 for the Luxury White Pearl paint job.
