Toyota launched the Century in 1967 as a home-grown competitor to Western luxury brands like Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Benz. The Century would go on to dominate Japan's chauffeur-driven market and feature one of the greatest V12 engines of all time until its 2017 redesign. But times change, and the traditional sedan layout is being swapped for an SUV based on the front-wheel-drive GA-K platform used by the Toyota Grand Highlander and Lexus TX. The new Century pairs perfectly design-wise with the sedan Century. Chamfered sides and an upright front and rear help prop up the SUV's formal roofline. The head and taillight treatment runs horizontally giving the SUV an imposing stance. A 3.5-liter hybrid V6 powers the new Century, the most important parts are on the inside. Fully reclining rear seats feature a "refreshment" or massage function, and a special Rear Comfort mode ensures rear passengers are subjected to things like jolts when coming to a stop. The Century will be exclusive to the Japanese market, with production set at around 30 per month.
