More value for more Toyota models
With effect from 1st September 2015, three more Toyota models will be offered with additional accessories at no extra charge. These models – Toyota Corolla Altis, Toyota Innova and Toyota Alphard – join the Toyota Vios and Toyota Hilux in UMW Toyota Motor’s campaign to give customers even more value with their purchases.
The additional features which were offered on certain variants of the Vios are now available for other variants. The upgraded DVD-AVN (Audio-Visual-Navigation) Infotainment System with Reverse Camera is now provided free of charge for Vios 1.5E besides the Vios 1.5 TRD and 1.5G. The DVD-AVN Infotainment system, designed by Toyota, has a 7-inch Capacitive Touch Screen and can connect to compatible smartphones to stream audio or provide internet access (if the smartphone has a wireless data connection). Other features include an Internet Browser, Voice Recognition, HDMI and GPS navigation as well as a Reverse Camera.
For the affordably priced Vios 1.5J (available with automatic or manual transmissions), customers get a more advanced DVD-AVX Entertainment System at no extra charge. This comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen which displays the image from the Reverse Camera. It has a number of options to connect to portable devices and also USB and SD card slots.
Vios 1.5E and 1.5J also continue to get Toyota Premium Security & Solar Film at no extra charge. Besides reducing heat transmission and glare, the film also strengthens the window glass so that it does not shatter when hit by a large object. This reduces the risk of break-ins and snatch thefts, giving occupants more peace of mind.
TOYOTA COROLLA ALTIS
The Toyota Corolla Altis has served generations of Malaysians, offering reliability, fuel economy and always great value for money. Now, UMW Toyota Motor adds even more value to the model with a free custom-designed Aerokit and free DVD-AVN Infotainment System for all three variants (which stocks are available).
The Aerokit provides sportier looks to the sedan. It is installed by trained personnel at UMW Toyota Motor’s accessories centre and comes with warranty, covering manufacturing defects.
The DVD-AVN Infotainment System has a 7-inch Infotainment touchscreen and full multimedia capabilities. It can read audio and video files from a SD card or USB thumbdrive and connect to various portable devices. Bluetooth connectivity allows interfacing with a compatible smartphone and access to internet is available with wireless broadband service. A reverse camera is also included in the system, making parking easier and safer while voice commands are recognised and can activate or operate certain systems.
The Corolla Altis is available with choices of 5 exterior colours, has both 2.0-litre and 1.8-litre engines connected to a 7-speed CVT that has been highly praised for efficiency and feel. Features available include Keyless Smart Entry and pushbutton start/stop, leather upholstery (2.0V and 1.8G), automatic headlight system, and illuminated cupholders.
The Innova is one of Malaysia’s most popular mid-sized MPVs and over the years, it has undergone constant improvements and updates in response to customer feedback and requirements. Available in 3 variants with 2-litre petrol engines, it is suited for both large families and by companies or fleet operators that require spaciousness and comfort seating.
Up to 8 persons can be seated on 3 rows and the seating layout can be arranged in different ways to suit specific requirements. There are also numerous storage spaces around the cabin so that everyone has a place to keep their small items and an efficient air-conditioning system with dual blowers, to ensure that cool air reaches even the rearmost passengers.
The bodyshell of Innova has passed GOA (Global Outstanding Assessment), Toyota’s tough in-house safety standard. Active Safety systems help the driver avoid an accident while Passive Safety features minimise serious injuries in the event of a collision. ISOFIX points are provided for compatible childseats to be installed easily and securely.
UMW Toyota Motor has added more value to the Innova with extra accessories provided free of charge (while stocks last). The first is a Toyota DVD-AVN Infotainment System that has a 2-DIN head unit with DVD Player and 7-inch Capacitive Touchscreen. The system has features which interface with a compatible smartphone, GPS navigation, multiple connectivity options, internet browser (when wireless broadband service is available), voice commands and a reverse camera. A rear entertainment system with a ceiling-mounted 8-inch monitor is also included exclusively for the Innova 2.0G variant.
The system, an original Toyota accessory, was designed and developed by Toyota so it has the same high standards of quality and reliability. Installation is done at UMW Toyota Motor’s accessories centre prior to delivery to customers so wiring quality is assured.
The Innova 2.0G is also being offered with additional free accessories. They are the Toyota Premium & Security Film which impedes break-ins by preventing the window glass from shattering (when smashed with hard object) and reducing glare and heat transmission into the cabin, and a portable tyre pump for use in case of emergencies and allows the owner to adjust tyre pressures with convenience at home.
This ‘Majestic Flagship’ MPV is one of the most popular large MPVs among Malaysians because of its generous interior space, first class feel and ride comfort and ample performance. Get an Alphard from UMW Toyota Motor and its authorised Toyota dealers comes with assurance of full aftersales support. And of course, being brand new units straight from the factory in Japan, there is also a manufacturer’s warranty of 3 years or 100,000 kms (whichever comes first).
The full aftersales support, including availability of all replacement and Toyota Genuine parts, is available nationwide at over 70 authorised Toyota service centres with well trained technicians to look after the vehicle. More importantly, whenever necessary, there is also support available from Toyota Motor Corporation’s technical division in Japan – which private importers would not have access to.
While stocks last, UMW Toyota Motor is offering a free TRD Aerokit specially designed for the Alphard. Besides giving a sportier look, the package also includes Daytime Running Lights for extra safety in all lighting conditions. Door visors are given at no cost.
Also while stocks last, a 10.2-inch ceiling-mounted full-colour monitor is offered at no charge. This complements the standard high-quality audio-visual (AV) entertainment system that comes with every Alphard. The AV system has a 7-inch touchscreen with a DVD Player, GPS navigation and a camera mounted at the back of the MPV to help the driver park easily and safely.
UMW Toyota Motor offers the imported Alphard 3.5G and Alphard 2.4G to suit different budgets and requirements. Both variants are equipped with a long list of luxury and convenience features that include HID headlamps with Intelligent Adaptive Front Lighting System (3.5G only), Smart Entry/pushstart ignition, leather upholstery, twin side powered sliding doors, powered rear door (3.5G only), 8-way powered driver’s seat, Captain & Ottoman seats (second row), and twin moonroofs.
Due to the length and large volume of the cabin, Toyota engineers specially developed a fully-automatic triple zone air-conditioning system which ensures that cool air is provided from front to rear. It has been designed to have low energy consumption so as not to affect fuel economy and comes with nano-e ion generator and pollen filter for a healthier cabin environment.
In the event of an accident, passengers in all three rows are well protected, firstly by the GOA-certified body structure (GOA or ‘Global Outstanding Assessment’ is Toyota’s tough in-house safety standard) and by no less than 7 SRS airbags located at the front and over all the side windows.
Active Safety features such as ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) help driver to avoid accidents. For those with small children, there are ISOFIX mounting points for easy and secure installation of compatible childseats.
For peace of mind, all Alphards sold by UMW Toyota Motor come with a customised security system that has a top Thatcham 1 equivalent rating. Additionally, Toyota Premium & Security Film is also provided at no extra charge to impede break-ins by preventing the window glass from shattering (when smashed with a hard object) and also reducing glare and heat transmission into the cabin.
