Spacious First Class Cabin

With seating for up to five, the Toyota Crown Signia provides exemplary comfort with standard leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front seats that can be adjusted to three levels come standard on both grades. A smooth, high-quality leather-trim provides a luxe feel in the cabin, with double stitching, quilting, and fillet piping that flows up to the headrest. Moderate bolsters cradle the front seat passengers, and the rear seats have a lounge-like design with a modern feel.

Up front, 8-way power adjustable driver and front passenger seats make for comfortable cruise, and a driver’s seat with memory function adds another layer of convenience. Front seat adjustments include slide, recline, tilt, height adjust, and lumbar support. Rear seats include ample cushioning and bolster support for maximum enjoyment.

Dual zone climate control is also standard, as accessed via a thin illuminated control panel that runs along the dashboard, just below the multimedia screen, along with other frequently used functions. For added interior temperature control, the windows are made from High Solar Energy Absorbing glass.

The 2025 Toyota Crown Signia also receives a 12.3-in. digital gauge cluster with selectable gauges. Drivers can select different displays with the push of a button, including a Hybrid System Indicator showing the driver system output and regeneration status to encourage eco-driving habits. As used on other Toyota hybrid models, the display suggests optimal amounts of acceleration for eco-driving. For added function and ambience, in-cabin LED lighting adds a premium feel. Illumination includes overhead and front/rear footwell lighting, cup holders, USB ports, door handle accents, and the rear cargo area.

To aid outward visibility, the available Panoramic View Monitor provides a 360-degree overhead view of the vehicle’s surroundings on the Advanced Tech Package. A backup camera with projected path and dynamic gridlines is standard. For additional convenience, a Smart Key System that works on all four doors is also standard.

A Sanctuary on the Road

For customers who seek premium experiences in a vehicle, keeping unwanted noise out is paramount. The 2025 Toyota Crown Signia’s cabin brings that priority quietly home. Rather than simply aiming at a “numbers” goal for sound level (decibels), Toyota engineers created a calm atmosphere conducive to enjoying easy conversation or hearing music in cleaner detail. The Toyota Crown Signia is assembled at the Tsutsumi Plant in Aichi Japan and uses the same TNGA-K platform that underpins the Crown sedan.

The high-strength TNGA-K platform is the first defense against noise intrusion, curbing vibration through the steering, floor and structure. Suspension tuning resists road surface disturbances and tire noise is reduced via strategically placed insulation and thoughtful tire/wheel construction. Engineers also undertook extensive analysis of noise transmission paths and filled spaces around door frames, window openings and wiring harnesses for enhanced cabin quietness. Even the inner rocker and bulkhead are connected with adhesive to minimize noise.

The Toyota Crown Signia also uses acoustic glass on the front driver and passenger side windows to minimize noise in the cabin. Insulation and body sealing material are placed throughout the structure, between the engine bay and cabin, under the carpeting and above the headliner for additional sound-deadening. The materials and their placement were optimized to minimize noise in the frequencies that typically interfere with conversation.

The Signature Hybrid

The 2025 Crown Signia is equipped with the Toyota Hybrid System (THS), standard. This system’s primary components include a 2.5-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine, a hybrid transaxle, and a Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery. Hybrid technology puts all these systems to work together, using a combination of gas and electric motors to drive the vehicle’s wheels for a balance of optimum power and fuel efficiency, depending on the driving conditions.

The hybrid transaxle houses four components: two electric motor-generators (MG1 and MG2); a single planetary gear; and a reduction gear to the final drive. MG1 serves primarily as a generator, driven by the gasoline engine, and provides a charge to hybrid battery. It also serves as the engine’s starter motor. MG2 drives the front wheels alone or in tandem with the internal combustion engine as needed. MG2 also acts as a generator, recovering kinetic energy when coasting or braking and converting it to electrical charge for the battery. In certain conditions, MG2 can also power the vehicle in full electric (EV) mode at low speeds.

The Crown Signia’s 230.4V Bi-Polar NiMH traction battery has a capacity of 5.0 Ahr and stores electricity for use by the motor generators. The battery is a compact unit that is located entirely beneath the rear seats, avoiding any intrusion in the rear cargo area. Its bi-polar construction helps reduce the overall battery size and weight, and benefits performance, since bipolar electrodes minimize the internal electrical resistance.

The 2.5-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine uses variable valve timing to utilize the efficiency of Atkinson cycle operation. This timing provides a shorter compression stroke and longer power stroke, resulting in excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions. The engine turns MG1 to charge the battery and provides power to the front wheels alongside MG2. Pairing this engine with Crown Signia’s standard electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission provides exceptionally smooth, shift-free power delivery.

Crown Signia also comes standard with selectable NORMAL, ECO and SPORT driving modes that let the driver tailor drivetrain performance. SPORT mode sharpens throttle response, enhancing the fun-to-drive experience. ECO mode changes the throttle and climate control logic to maximize efficiency, while NORMAL mode is ideal for everyday driving. Additionally, an EV (Electric Vehicle) mode allows electric-only driving at low speeds for short distances.

Altogether, the Toyota Hybrid System delivers a manufacturer estimated fuel consumption rating of 6.0/6.4/6.2 L/100 km (city/highway/combined).

Elevated Handling with Standard AWD

The Toyota Crown Signia delivers the best of both worlds: sedan-like driving comfort and SUV versatility. Its 170 mm ground clearance, 1,880 mm overall width, and 2,850 mm wheelbase give it a firmly planted, car-like feel, while its large 21-inch wheels gives it a lifted seating position with a 655 mm hip point.

Equipped with Toyota’s electronic On-Demand AWD standard, the Crown Signia’s AWD system takes maximum advantage of the hybrid powertrain’s benefits while also being capable of towing up to 2,700 pounds.

Instead of using a transfer case and driveshaft to send power to the rear wheels, the AWD system employs a separate rear-mounted electric motor (MGR) to send power to the rear wheels when needed, like when cornering or in slippery conditions. The front and rear wheel driving force distribution is precisely controlled between 100:0 and 20:80, for enhanced fuel efficiency and comfortable driving performance. MGR not only provides power to the rear wheels but can also deliver power proactively in ideal conditions to improve driving dynamics and act as a generator, providing charge to the Hybrid battery when coasting or braking.

A blend of lightweight, high-strength materials support rigidity, like a ring frame structure in the rear, a combination of plate spot and laser welds on the body, and the use of structural adhesive throughout the frame. The steering gearbox is mounted directly to the suspension cross member for a direct steering feel that minimizes line correction. Aero-stabilizing underbody panels with a “stepped” texture help control airflow under the vehicle a firmly planted ride.

Toyota Crown Signia’s suspension consists of a MacPherson-type strut in the front and multilink rear suspension. Toyota engineers focused on reducing vibrations felt by the driver and passengers and have equipped Crown Signia’s suspension with swing valve shock absorbers, a soft suspension bushing, and a dynamic damper on the front suspension. Polyurethane coated coil springs in the front help provide a smooth ride and high-damping structural adhesive on the body and reinforced seat mounting points reduces shake generated by the road.

Toyota Crown Signia’s handling is bolstered by an electronically controlled brake system featuring Active Cornering Assist, which engages the stability control to reduce understeer in certain cornering situations, so the driver feels the enhanced agility, not the system’s operation.

Creature Comfort for All

Toyota Crown Signia keeps drivers and passengers plugged-in when it comes to charging devices. A vertical wireless Qi charger with charge indicator in the middle console holds a device in place while charging and maximizes space. There are also three USB-C and a 12V charging port up front, standard. For rear seat passengers, two USB-Type C ports are standard.

The front seat cup holder is designed with everyday functionality in mind. Its recessed design helps prevent drinks from spilling over to the shifter side and there is also a partition in the middle of the cup holder, maximizing its utility to fit long items like phones, tablets, and wallets. Water bottle holders add storage on the front doors, along with one water bottle holder on each rear door.

In the rear, passengers will enjoy the comfort and convenience of dedicated air vents, two cup holders, a rear bottle holder, and seatback pockets standard. Cargo space is abundant on Crown Signia with a rear deck that’s made for an active lifestyle, including a tonneau cover and aluminum scuff plate.

When there is a need for more room, the Crown Signia’s 60/40 second-row fold-flat seats with extension panel are ready to accommodate cargo needs. Once folded flat, the cargo area becomes a six-and-a-half-foot long storage area, ready to accommodate items like skis, golf clubs, or luggage. The rear power liftgate allows for hands-free operation, and an easy-to-use rear seat release can be accessed from rear liftgate opening.
