Toyota lobs pricing for Granvia MPV
All-new Toyota Granvia people-mover heads upmarket from $62,990 plus on-roads
19 Sep 2019
TOYOTA Australia has announced pricing for its all-new Granvia people-mover, which takes a big step upmarket over the Tarago that it replaces, checking in from $62,990 plus on-roads for the six-seat version. The eight-seater costs $2000 more.
The range now tops out at $74,990 for the VX grade, marking a significant price increase over the Tarago that started at $45,490 and topped out at $65,261 before having its discontinuation announced earlier this year. It will continue being sold alongside the Granvia until stock runs out.
This means Toyota will no longer compete with the likes of the Honda Odyssey and Kia Carnival but will go toe-to-toe with European offerings such as the Mercedes-Benz Valente ($59,850) and V220d ($79,270), and Volkswagen’s Multivan Black Edition 340TDI ($63,490).
The Granvia is based on the all-new HiAce van platform but adds multi-link rear suspension in place of the workhorse’s leaf-sprung rear set-up.
Justifying the price increase is a big trend upwards in luxury, with two model grades offered in both six- and eight-seat configurations.
Limited specification has been detailed ahead of the new model’s on-sale date of October 14, but the base Granvia includes an infotainment system (likely 8.0 inches in size) with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, six rear USB ports, front and rear climate control, smart entry and start, and dual side sliding doors.
Stepping up to the VX adds quilted leather-accented upholstery, surround-view cameras, a digital rearview mirror, a 12-speaker Pioneer audio system and power-operated sliding doors.
A full line-up of active safety features are also included across the range in Toyota’s Safety Sense suite, including pre-collision safety with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active cruise control, lane departure alert, road sign assist, automatic high beam, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera with guide lines, and nine airbags.
The six-seat layout features three rows of captain’s chairs, while the eight-seater adds a fourth-row bench seat that features 60/40 split folding.
Powertrain details are yet to be confirmed, but the most likely starter is a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder unit that produces 130kW at 3400rpm and 450Nm from 1600-2400rpm, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Granvia will be offered with capped-price servicing totalling $240 per service for the first three years/60,000km, with six-month/10,000km intervals.
Toyota Australia vice-president of sales and marketing Sean Hanley said the Granvia would introduce new levels of comfort and refinement to the people-mover segment.
“With Granvia, we are introducing a new nameplate to the people-mover market and one that is set to raise the bar in that market offering stylish premium functionality,” he said.
“The all-new Granvia offers superb value-for-money with unprecedented refinement and comfort and a list of impressive luxury features to cater to high-end family, hospitality and corporate buyers.”
