The 2025 Toyota Crown Signia, as promised, expands the flagship model line beyond a sedan. It is, however, not available with the Crown sedan’s top powertrain, and it occupies a narrow niche among Toyota’s many SUVs. It has the same interior as the Crown sedan, with flowing dash panels, bronze accents, and dual 12.3-inch screens.
The powertrain is the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine found in the base Crown sedan. It has 243 horsepower and all-wheel drive as standard, thanks to a rear-mounted electric motor, and has only one available powertrain.
The Crown Signia will be slightly larger than a Highlander, but not by much. It outperforms the 219-horsepower Venza, which isn’t designed to tow. Despite marketing claims of being a “midsize” SUV, its size is very close to that of its mechanical twin, the RAV4 Hybrid.
The Crown Signia, on the other hand, sits more comfortably between the RAV4 and the Highlander. They may be able to coexist, but it appears that the space between Toyota SUVs is becoming increasingly narrow in this area. This is before taking into account Lexus’ offerings: the NX and RX.
The XLE includes 19-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable front seats, cloth and leatherette upholstery, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and a digital rearview mirror as standard equipment. This last feature can apply light braking and steering to maintain space between the vehicle and other road users.
