2014 Toyota Crown Majesta

For the brand new Majesta, the old V8#39;s of yesteryear#39;s Majesta generations is no longer offered, thrown away, and yes, I am shocked to say that the previous Majesta, the 2009-era Majesta, really is the final V8-powered Toyota sedan ever made and since it#39;s gone, it#39;s gone for good and the new Majesta is equipped with the 3.5L V6 hybrid powerplant inherited from the latest generation Lexus GS450h. Although, it has the same hybrid powerplant as the GS450h, the new Majesta#39;s 3.5L V6 engine produces about 292PS of power alone and for the sake of science, the new Majesta has an electric motor which produces 147kW of power so when both of the V6 engine and the electric motor kicks in, I#39;d expect that it has the same combined output as the GS450h#39;s. and it wasn#39;t.

343PS of combined power output, less than the GS450h produced and less than the previous model#39;s 4.6L V8. On the plus side, it packs more power than the previous model#39;s 4.3L V8, so positively, the 18.2km/L of fuel consumption really shows that a little downsizing really placed the whole less is more philosophy, the new Majesta with its hybrid powerplant has the power of a V8 with the fuel economy of a compact car. Yeah, they can do science, them.

On the suspension side, the new Majesta comes with front double wishbone and rear multilink suspension, made to keep this flagship saloon as comfortable as. hmmm. walking on a pool of custard? Yep, I was gonna say that but I haven#39;t got to the other part about loads of tech done in the name of stability and yes, I am now because for the new model, it has Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) and Electric Power Steering (EPS).

It also has this Navigation/Artificial Intelligence-Adaptive Variable Suspension System (NAVI/AI-AVS) which provide integrated control of vehicle behavior in tandem with the four wheels to create a flat ride and comfortable handling. Yep, this is quite a treat if you don#39;t want to wake your boss sleeping at the rear seat but be warned though, although the new Majesta was more focused on comfort, I#39;m afraid that it#39;s not quite exciting to drive either because with all of those tech loaded as well as being governed by some sort of electronic nanny, this car is a bit of a gentleman#39;s manner rather than a car made for chase scenes in case of unsuspecting Yakuzas chasing you from behind. Even when set to SPORT MODE, it feels a bit of a same in here.
