Redefining what premium stands for in the luxury people mover market, AAB Toyota unveiled the new Granvia in Qatar yesterday.
Designed to provide an exceptional transportation space that addresses the growing demand for high-end shuttles, the new vehicle’s elegant design, luxurious interior, powerful engine, and advanced safety features enable customers to travel in optimal comfort while enjoying total peace of mind.
The new Granvia takes the concept of a luxury shuttle to the next level with premium seating for up to seven people, its expansive cabin delivers a level of comfort and refinement passengers would normally associate with a high-end limousine, complete with independent rear climate control, adjustable interior illumination, and luxurious woodgrain and metallic finishing, among many other features. Takuo Ishikawa, chief engineer of the new Toyota Granvia, said: “The new Granvia offers more than just efficient transportation. By pairing exceptional comfort with advanced technologies, it provides greater value, excitement, and a satisfying experience for drivers and passengers alike. The combination of a high-rigidity body frame with our new four-link coil suspension delivers superior handling stability, quietness, and safety.”
Ishikawa added: “This is a people mover that is designed to move passengers not only physically, but also emotionally. The new Granvia responds perfectly to changing customer values in different markets, particularly through its lavish interior and four independent rear captain’s chairs, which take the comfort of passengers to the next level. We invite everyone to take a ride to experience this groundbreaking luxury vehicle for themselves.”
Yugo Miyamoto, chief representative, Middle East and Central Asia Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation, said: “We are very excited to unveil the new Granvia, a true premium transport solution that meets the evolving needs of those desiring a spacious cabin, unrivalled comfort, and superior refinement. By providing ample personal space, we have ensured that each passenger will enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride and arrive at their destination feeling relaxed and refreshed.
“At Toyota, we believe that travel should always be an enjoyable experience, and it was our goal to develop an exceptional vehicle that enhances people’s journeys by creating memorable moments to cherish. I’d like to extend my gratitude to all of our customers for their continuous support, which is an endless source of inspiration in our drive to create ‘ever-better’ cars.”
While conventional luxury wagons tend to strive for an organic, emotional exterior design, Toyota’s engineers have created a more prestigious profile that sets the new Granvia apart.
The vehicle’s wide body and low centre of gravity are accentuated by cladding panels and metallic ornamentation that runs along to the bottom of the rear bumper, emphasising its low, firmly-planted stance.
The new Granvia is available in a choice of four exterior colours that have been specially selected to create an impressive and luxurious presence. Customers can choose from White Pearl CS, Black, Gray ME, and Silver ME. Meanwhile, interior colour options include natural beige or black-colored seats, which can be combined with Woodgrain or Black Metallic ornamentation. The vehicle comes equipped with newly-developed 17-inch alloy wheels that further express its elegance and high-quality feel.
