The Private School Toyota Quantum VX
This is the new Toyota Quantum VX, and there’s a very good chance that you’ve never seen one like this before. That’s because this Quantum has gone to private school and offers luxury and comfort to rival some of the best premium people-carriers in the market.
The design of the Quantum VX embodies the luxury that awaits its passengers on the inside. The majority of its design is based on the new Quantum, but there are features all around that distinguish it from the rest of the Quantum family. The most significant design element is found up front in the form of a massive chrome radiator grille with integrated LED headlights. The lower front bumper also features a classy thin chrome strip that connects the two front fog lamps, giving the face of the Quantum VX a premium appearance. The side profile boasts a chrome element along with shiny 17-inch alloy wheels to match the chrome door handles and electrically adjustable side mirrors, which also feature blind spot alert.
The interior provides individual seating for nine on electrically operated captain’s chairs. A captain’s chair is an individual seat with armrests on either side. The seats in the Quantum VX also recline and have fold-out leg rests, all controlled electronically. The seats are finished in premium quilted leather upholstery, complemented with fine wood trim and interior lighting. Rear occupants also have their own independent climate control and an array of USB ports to stay connected. The sliding doors are electrically operated and also feature keyless entry and start.
The engine driving the Toyota Quantum VX is a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel motor, sending 115kW of power and 420Nm of torque to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission. The price for this luxury van? It will set you back a cool R843,600.
