Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 09, 2019: Redefining what premium stands for in the luxury people mover market, Al-Futtaim Toyota has unveiled the new 2020 Granvia in the UAE.
With the launch of the Granvia, Al-Futtaim Toyota is committed to taking charge of the growing demand for high-end shuttles. The vehicle’s elegant design, opulent interior, powerful 3.5-litre V6 engine and advanced safety features enable customers to travel in optimal comfort while enjoying total peace of mind. The vehicle is perfectly suited for large families who require space and are looking for comfort and luxury as well as limousine companies, hotels and corporates wanting to transport their guests in style.
Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Toyota, said: “For all of our models, it is our goal to give people the most enjoyable journey possible. With the 2020 Toyota Granvia, we are offering an exceptional vehicle that enhances the experience for everyone on board by ensuring you always arrive relaxed and refreshed. We are truly excited to launch a premium solution for those that enjoy travelling in luxury. The new Granvia is perfect for changing customer values and we are equipped to meet the demands of luxury lifestyles.”
With seating for six, including four captain’s chairs as a standard feature – a first in class – the Granvia includes adjustable interior illumination, fine woodgrain trim and metallic finishing, as well as rear air conditioning that incorporates ion generators with nanotechnology to help remove bacteria and odours. Driver assistance technologies comprise a 4.2-inch display, a 7.0-inch infotainment unit, multifunctional steering wheel and a digital rear-view mirror ensuring a clear view regardless of how much luggage is in the back.
Setting the new Granvia apart is a striking profile and a wide-body to ensure a low centre of gravity accentuated by metallic trim running along the bottom to emphasize its firmly-planted stance. Upfront the stylish grille and LEDs create a strong presence with the bold design finished off by chrome accents.
Power is courtesy of Toyota’s high compression, direct-injection 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine generating 278 horsepower and 351nm of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. With a stiff frame coupled to MacPherson strut front suspension and a four-link rear, the Granvia delivers excellent handling and stability together with exceptional ride comfort. Even fully loaded, the 2020 Granvia removes the stress from travelling and takes it all in its stride, with ample space that can accommodate four golf bags along with six passengers.
With a focus on safety throughout its development, the new Granvia is built using high-tensile strength materials to provide a lightweight yet rigid structure. The Granvia additionally minimizes risk to pedestrians by incorporating energy-absorbing reinforcements which have been adopted on the front end. Standard features on the new model include emergency brake warning, tyre pressure monitoring, plus driver and passenger airbags, knee airbags, as well as curtain airbags.
Al-Futtaim Toyota is offering the 2020 Toyota Granvia SE model from AED177,000 with leather seats, a rearview camera, cruise control, 17-inch wheels, LEDs, parking sensors and hill-assist control.
The Toyota Granvia top of the range Premium model is priced at AED199,900 and includes additional luxury quilted Ottoman leather seats, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure assist, surround-view camera, digital rearview mirror, pre-crash system and an electrically operated side door.
