Alphard Facts

So, what is an Alphard?

The Toyota Alphard (the name comes from the star Alphard, the brightest in the constellation Hydra) is a pre-owned luxury 7 or 8 seat people carrier. First introduced onto the Japanese home market in 2002, reassuringly it continues in production to the present day, earning it the accolade of being one of Japan’s best-selling MPV’s.

The Alphard is powered by a choice of either 4-cylinder 2.4-litre 16 valve or V6 3-litre 24 valve engines, the latter also having been used in, amongst other Toyota manufactured vehicles, the Lexus ES 300.

The Alphard is generally recognised as offering a smooth driving experience, but these units are also known for their great reliability and longevity. Coupled with an effortless 4 speed automatic transmission the Alphard offers boundless comfort.

Equipment and accessories all add to the motoring experience, with a range of electronically operated and power assisted features available. As Imperial Leisure Vehicles specialise in sourcing the high-grade, low-mileage vehicles, many of the Alphards we import are of an abnormally high specification and are accessorised with a range of additional luxuries.

It’s clear that the Alphard was designed for passenger comfort first and foremost, rather than as a goods vehicle which was then retroactively fitted with seats. Add to this an equally impressive unique Imperial conversion and you will be driving off in unparalleled opulence.
