Even though 2018 Toyota Century is not a new car on the market, people do not know much about it. It is a third generation of the boxy limo car, shaped literally as a box, but with many interesting luxury details that are not always seen in this class. The first model, Avalon, has been very popular and attractive, but as that model has been released, Lexus, the main competitor made its Lexus LS. Toyota answered with the longer vehicle; this time called Century and then suddenly stopped with production 2017. Now they came back it, as a wider and longer car, with a stronger engine and many improvements.
2018 Toyota Century aims to be a competitor to many luxury models we have on the market nowadays, but Toyota still has not changed a design of the car. So, if you liked the last model you should be interested to see a similar model as the previous one with only minor changes. As we said, it is still a boxy limo, with large chromatic gridded grille and LED lights on the sides. The rear end has sharp edges and taillights which look a little old-fashioned. There is a wide chromatic frame on the bottom of the car.
As we saw on photos, and as we concerned, 2018 Toyota Century will be as luxury and elegant as last models, which we always expect from Toyota. That means that the manufacturer put a large touchscreen in the middle of dashboard decorated with woody and chromatic details. Together with that come high-luxury and quality fabric on the seats. Besides that, buyers can order a leather if they prefer. There will also be things such as a 20-speaker sound system to be more comfortable and interesting during long traveling. Toyota will never disappoint their buyers, so we expect the best in class.
After 20 years of keeping the same engine under the hood, 2018 Toyota Century got a new one, V8 instead of classic V12. That means an engine with 394 horsepower that increases the speed to 60 mph for only 6 seconds. To be more attractive, the manufacturer announced that they will make a hybrid version of it, even though they have not confirmed that information yet. However, it that is true, it could be THS II system with lithium-ion and nickel-metal hybrid batteries. The transmission should be an automatic as on the last model.
2018 Toyota Century
Unfortunately, 2018 Toyota Century is not planned to be offered to the US buyers, but to Japanese buyers only. So, in case that you are willing to buy it, you can feel disappointed, especially when we say that this model should cost $51,000, which is the pretty much low price for this long car.
