After the debut of the 2024 Lexus LM, its Toyota twin, the Alphard is also set to be revealed very soon. However, someone managed to take a few photos of the next-generation 2024 Toyota Alphard way before we were all supposed to see it. These photos you’re about to see are courtesy of Thai automotive website Headlight Magazine, and we can safely say that the next-generation Alphard will be just as striking as ever in terms of design.
Unsurprisingly, the 2024 Toyota Alphard looks fundamentally similar to the LM and from a design perspective, follows an evolutionary redesign approach as opposed to completely rewriting the Alphard recipe. What you get is a luxury MPV or minivan that has plenty of glass area, as well as having a cleaner aesthetic by reducing the amount of visual noise that this van has.
The large grille of the new Alphard integrates much better with the LED headlights now, while the side profile has simpler body lines. The rear end of the new Alphard also blends the LED taillights with an upper black section of the tailgate to give this luxury MPV a bolder aesthetic.
As a bonus, we also have leaked photos of the Vellfire–a sportier version of the Alphard that never reached the Philippines. The Vellfire has horizontal bars on its grille as opposed to the mesh-like design of the Alphard, but apart from differences in the bumpers, the Vellfire is similar to the Alphard.
Interior and powertrain options of the 2024 Toyota Alphard have not yet been leaked or revealed, but we expect the latter to echo that of the Lexus LM. Therefore, we can expect the Alphard to ditch the V6 as well. In lieu of that is a 371-horsepower 2.4-liter turbo four-cylinder mated to electric motors driving the rear wheels, thus making it all-wheel drive (AWD). The other hybrid drivetrain is a 2.5-liter non-turbo four-cylinder that’s also from the RX, and this has a system output of 246 horsepower. The more powerful hybrid could get a 6-speed automatic, while the latter will most likely be mated to an e-CVT.
The 2024 Toyota Alphard is rumored to make its debut this June, which isn’t a long wait. What will probably be a long wait is when this luxury MPV arrives in the Philippines. Considering that the outgoing Alphard is still in short supply while demand is high, expect the same situation in the next-generation model as well.
