2023 Toyota Vellfire AGH40 now launched in Malaysia - price RM 438k, what’s new?

Fans of the ever-popular luxury MPV can now rejoice as the new 2023 Toyota Vellfire generation AGH40 is finally launched in Malaysia, with a price tag that reads RM 438,000 (OTR, without insurance).

So, what’s new? For starters, the new Vellfire features Tri-LED headlights, sequential indicator lights, LED fog lamps at the front, as well as DRLs that have a special crystal effect to enhance the front fascia. The new front grille design, integrated neatly with the DRLs and bumper, are inspirations brought to life from its ‘Forceful x IMPACT LUXURY’ design language.

Meanwhile, the rear features a new set of LED tail lights, with nifty tailgate buttons neatly tucked below it for a cleaner look.

The new Vellfire comes with 19-inch wheels and 3 body colours to choose from; which are Platinum White Pearl, Precious Metal, and Black.

As you move around checking out the new design, you’ll notice the difference in size from the previous generation (AGH30). The new Vellfire is definitely bigger than its predecessor - measuring 5,005 mm in length (75 mm longer) and 1,950 mm in height (55 mm taller). The 1,850 mm width and 3,000 mm wheelbase remains the same.

The stitching matches the champagne-coloured trim too.

Armrests and a side table in the middle can come handy too for drive-thrus.

To enhance your experience, the cabin is equipped with a branded JBL 15-speaker audio setup, the same 64-colour ambient lighting setup around the ceiling and sides of the cabin, automatic dual-zone air conditioning with Nanoe X purification system for both front and rear seats, as well as 7 USB-C ports (2 up front, 1 in the centre console box, 2 at the second row seats, and 2 at the third) to keep your personal devices juiced up. A single 240W AC plug point is also available in the MPV.
