The Crown Crossover RS hybrid turbo uses a Direct Shift-6AT (6 speed automatic) transmission with E-Four Advanced drive system.

The Direct Shift-6AT in the hybrid turbo provides rapid and direct acceleration response using a clutch system and integrated powertrain control that selects the appropriate gear for each driving situation and finely controls engine and motor torque. M (manual) mode allows gears to be selected and held like a manual transmission.

The 2.4L turbo dual boost hybrid system uses the high-output 4WD system “E-Four Advanced” for the rear motor.

This system precisely controls front and rear wheel torque distribution between 100:0 and 20:80 according to the driving conditions, achieving high traction performance and handling stability on various road surfaces.

When starting and accelerating straight, the distribution is between 60:40 to 40:60 to suppress vehicle pitching and provide a direct acceleration feeling. When cornering, the vehicle speed, steering angle, and other information are used to distribute the driving force according to the driving conditions, contributing to excellent handling stability.

The driving force distribution is almost 50:50 from the beginning of steering and while turning, and the driving force distribution is more rear-biased (50:50 to 20:80) when exiting a corner, ensuring traction performance and suppressing vehicle pitching, while realising a cornering feeling that allows you to trace the intended line.

Power output of the hybrid turbo is 200 kW (272 PS) / 6,000 rpm.

Fuel economy (WLTC combined) for the Crown Crossover RS hybrid turbo is 15.7 km/L.

Hybrid models use an electric continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a different E-Four drive system.

Aiming for a balance between fuel efficiency and driving performance, the electric continuously variable transmission achieves both low fuel consumption and excellent dynamic performance.

Power output for the hybrid models is 137 kW (186 PS) / 6,000 rpm, each model is a different weight so the fuel economy (WLTC combined) varies:

Crossover Z hybrid: 22.2 km/L

Crossover G hybrid: 22.4 km/L

Crossover X hybrid: 22.4 km/L

There is a good selection of Crown Crossover models going through auction in Japan every week – we can assist with the entire process from choosing the best example to shipping it to Australia.

We specialise in direct car import from Japan and have been sourcing vehicles to order for private Australian buyers for over 25 years.

Every vehicle of interest to our clients is carefully inspected in person at auction, with more pictures provided along with market pricing guidance to help set the budget.

Every vehicle is hand-picked and we only source the very best.

We make Toyota Crown Crossover import easy with physical inspections of vehicles by experienced staff at over 30 auctions every week in the Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, and Kyushu / Fukuoka regions.

We start by focusing only on vehicles with the highest auction grades. But there is a LOT more involved than just basic auction grading !

Auction reports are often not reliable – we inspect every vehicle of interest in person to ensure it is up to our standard and has the options and features you want.

Most people (even Japanese export agents) do not realise that a significant % of vehicles in Japan are bought and sold by Japanese dealers for a quick profit between different auctions. If you are not aware of this you will almost certainly pay more than you needed to for exactly the same car.

Our experience with this situation alone will often save you more than the cost of our service fee.

Our import agent service includes a pre-check for past auction records using JCHC, at no cost to you. This allows us to rule out:

  • Cars recently auctioned and moved to a different auction for quick resale

  • Graded R (accident repair) cars changed to higher grades

  • Cars that have passed in unsold multiple times indicating a problem with the condition and/or price.

Our thorough Japan auction inspections include checks of engine, transmission, air conditioning / electrics plus pictures inside, outside and underneath showing options / features and any condition issues. Just like the auction history checks, in-person inspections at auction are all part of our service – no extra charge.

Following these rules and being very selective on quality allows us to consistently target first-time auctioned vehicles for our clients in the best condition and at the best price.

We also ensure that any outstanding factory recalls are completed prior to export from Japan, which is essential before import to Australia / SEVS compliance. *Recall work is free in Japan and will be arranged at no extra charge before your vehicle goes to the Port, but please note there will be a small transport charge (generally $200 to $300) to send the vehicle to the nearest Toyota dealer.

Once your Crown Crossover has been exported from Japan all original paperwork and additional items such as spare keys and books are sent to you by EMS. This includes the Export Certificate (showing up to the last two re-registration inspection dates and odometer readings, depending on vehicle age) for your peace of mind.

Port clearance and compliance will be arranged for you, and registration can also be taken care of by the compliance workshop for your convenience.
