Toyota Australia has announced initial details of the new Granvia people mover ahead of a local arrival in the fourth quarter of this year.
Locally, Toyota will offer the HiAce-based people mover with a choice of six or eight seats in standard and top-of-the-range VX grades.
All variants feature a rear cabin with four individual reclining Captain's chairs with armrests, with the eight-seater models adding a fourth-row, two-seat 60/40 split-bench.
Both versions get front and rear climate control, keyless entry and start, dual side sliding doors (power operated on VX) and the latest multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The flagship Granvia VX adds quilted leather-accented upholstery and power-adjustment for the backrest and additional fold-out ottoman leg-rest for the rear seating.
The Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assistance tech will be standard and consists of autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian (day and night) and cyclist detection (day only), high-speed active cruise control, lane departure alert, road sign assist, automatic high beam, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, rear-view camera and nine airbags.
At this stage, Toyota has confirmed a single turbo-diesel engine will power both grades, however, output figures are yet to be announced. The 2.8-litre 130kW/450Nm four-cylinder turbo-diesel from the HiAce is likely.
Full specs and pricing will be confirmed closer to the launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
