2023 Toyota Crown Exterior and Dimensions

2023 Crown Exterior

To call the new Toyota Crown exterior unusual-looking would be an understatement. All the typical three-box sedan elements are present, albeit in a particularly swoopy style, but its elevated ride height and body cladding makes it into a distinctive-looking sedan. The detailing is also distinctive, with a gaping air intake in the front bumper, slit-like headlights, and a coupe-style roofline with an odd black insert disrupting the area where the rear pillar meets the belt line. It's perhaps not instantly attractive, but it becomes better-looking the longer you look at it.

Three trim levels are available for the Toyota Crown's introductory year, comprising the entry-level XLE, the mid-range Limited, and the range-topping Platinum. There isn't much visual difference between their exteriors, but the two lower trim levels run on 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, and the Platinum features 21-inch items. Limited and Platinum trims both have quad-LED headlights while the XLE has bi-LED headlight units, and the XLE is the only trim without a standard fixed-glass panoramic sunroof. Toyota's more premium aspirations for the Crown are evident in the acoustic noise-reducing windshield, and the same applies to the front passenger side windows.

With an overall length of 196.1 inches and measuring 60.6 inches in height, the Toyota Crown dimensions are quite substantial. It stands more than five inches taller than the low-slung Kia Stinger, and is nearly six inches longer as well. All this translates into easier entry into a more spacious cabin than its competitors offer.

The Toyota Crown is however slightly narrower than the Kia Stinger, with an overall width of 72.4 inches compared to the Kia's 73.6 inches, but it beats the Stinger's shoulder room of 56.4 inches by more than half-and-inch and is only 0.3 inches narrower in terms of hip room.

There isn't much difference between the Crown's lowest curb weight and that of the comparable AWD Stinger, with the Toyota pulling the scales at 3,980 lbs against the Kia's 3,973 lbs. The Crown Platinum is a heavy beast, though, because its claimed curb weight of 4,343 lbs is 167 lbs more portly than the top-spec AWD Stinger.

The Crown's wheelbase of 112.2 inches is, however, more than two inches shorter than that of the Stinger, but that's largely due to the Kia's RWD-based architecture enabling its engineers to move the front wheels further forward. Nissan's Maxima is also smaller than the Crown and has an even shorter wheelbase, so it is the clear loser in this area of comparison.

Exterior Colors

There are five different 2023 Toyota Crown colors on offer, of which two are no-cost options with the remaining three adding $425 to the asking price. The no-cost colors are Black and Magnetic Gray Metallic, while Oxygen White, Heavy Metal, and Supersonic Red cost extra. Opting for white or red should hide the Crown's size somewhat, but it will look imposing in one of the darker colors.

The Platinum trim offers the same color selection, but can also be had with a two-tone paint option which blacks out the hood, roof, and rear fascia at a price premium of $975. This option pairs the black elements with a main body color in a choice of Oxygen White, Heavy Metal, Supersonic Red, or Bronze Age.

What is the best color for the Toyota Crown?

Both of the no-cost colors are very dark, which will be fine if you're an undertaker or keen on flying below the radar, but they're also quite dull. Rather fork out the extra $425 for Oxygen White or Supersonic Red for some pizzazz, and get the bonus of being able to see the Crown's intriguing exterior detailing more clearly. The Platinum trim's expensive two-tone paint option is nice if you like that kind of thing, but its unusual application (on the hood, roof, and trunk lid) unfortunately also gives the impression of a car that's halfway through a body-wrapping project.

Which is the most expensive color for the Toyota Crown?

The three added-cost Toyota Crown exterior colors are priced the same and add $425 to the base price, but the Platinum trim can also be ordered with a two-tone paint job, which adds $975 to the price tag.

Does the Toyota Crown come with a sunroof?

The entry-level XLE doesn't have a sunroof, but the mid-range Limited and top-trim Platinum are equipped with a panoramic fixed-glass roof with a powered blind.

What size wheels does the Toyota Crown have?

When equipped with the lower-output engine as in the XLE and Limited trims, the Toyota Crown rolls on 19-inch alloy wheels. Upgrading to the high-power Platinum trim adds 21-inch alloy wheels with lower-profile tires to the specification sheet, and a different design of 21-inch wheel is available for the Limited as an extra-cost option.
