2016/2017 Toyota Allion Vs Premio

The latest versions of Toyota Allion and Premio was released in mid-2016. The two models has come with significant design as well as technological improvements. This time, Toyota has blurred the boundaries of the design in both of the cars and given a one common overall design to the front and the back while specifying 2 different levels of detailing and trim. Despite that fact, the design this time is really impressive. Firstly, let's watch the video that we did as the comparison between the two cars.

 

The 2 cars have been built on the same chassis as the predecessors', the NZE-260. but in the exterior, the hood (bonnet), front fenders and the front and rear buffers have been redesigned with different levels of detailing. The front lamps are LED including the head lamp. Tail lights are a combination of both LED and conventional lighting. The ground clearance has also been increased a bit which is a better sign. 

This time, there is no "G-Superior" in the Premio. Instead the "EX-Package" as the highest option level in the Premio and G-Plus in the Allion. In the video, there are those highest grades.

The Premio that we took to has the New body colour which they call it as "Dark Red Mica Metallic" which is more Redish than the wine-red of the out going version (Different colour codes). The white is all the same and it is the Pearl-white (metallic white) in the video. 

The 2 cars are equipped with more sophisticated technological aspects. Mainly the safety features like,

High Beam Assist: Which will control the high beam (Head light) by it self. When driving at night, due to the HBA system we no more need to put the lights into Full or Dim. When a car is coming towards, the system automatically dims the light and immediately after its passed, the lights are put into full. 

Lane Departure Assist: The system will give a warning if the driver is crossing between the lanes unsafely. The display in the dashboard displays the regarding information. 

Pre-Safe Collision Assist: The car brakes by itself if the driver did not take necessary actions in the situation where a collision could happen. The system works under the speed of 50Km/h. It is the Same as the CTBA which came in Honda. Additionally with the ultra sonic sensors on the front and rear bumpers (buffers) the system detects if there are short collision objects even when the car is moving in a tight parking lot. The system boosts brake even the driver has applied brakes slightly which would not sufficient to stop the car. The on dash display visualizes how close you are to a collision object. 

This time they have added the Engine Auto Stop function which turns off the engine when it is in idle in order to maximize the fuel efficiency. For an instance, when you are waiting for the green light, The Auto Stop will work until you take the foot off the brake pedal. Immediately after the brakes are released, the engine comes up and ready when your foot reaches the accelerator (no delay).

Hi, I think Toyota Premio is best as well than Toyota allion

 

Of course. Premio's front grill looks more aerodynamic than allion's, so it should at least add 20hp to premio.

And I also heard that they have reduced weight by 20kg on the Allion grill over the premio. That weight saving will come in handy.

Isn't that an option available only for G SUPERIOR version?

Check with the Petrol consumption of both card. Since I heard Toyota Premio will work better then Toyota Allion

Yes, I also heard Premio does 0.0056km/L better than Allion. I guess it's because of the aerodynamic front grill of the Premio. If you're concerned about fuel consumption, it's better to buy the Premio.

Jesus christ... this guy describes the 260 facelifts as if it is an entirely a new frame. What is with the damn Clarkson type accent ???

the fact that you can take criticism (constructive or otherwise) hopefully is a sign that you (even if you are a car salesman) are sincerely trying to achieve something more than just peddling off cars. So I will continue to give you the benefit of the doubt.

My nearly two year old Axio has these exact same features. It's called Safety Sense C, and there's Safety Sense P which also watches out for pedestrians in addition to cars.

First of all, Tarragon is a car sale guy. Obviously the review will be targeted at peddling overpriced pieces of sh*t like Premio and Allion. Like any car sale guy's review, it will not contain any technical depth or knowledge about the actual Japanese market (like irage pointed out).

Buyers have much better options than Premios and Allions for 7.5 mn price range. So car sale guys are desperately looking for fools to sell the allions and premios.

2 out of the 3 technologies mentioned in the articles are available in my Dash cam (although imperfect).

Guys did you check the new video? Hope you'll enjoy... http://forum.autolanka.com/blogs/entry/5-nissan-leaf-at-its-boundaries/

Yes...

The video-graphy has improved quite a lot (you guys even got a helicopter to do fly overs ! <--- sarcastic humor) 

Sound quality has improved a lot...editing needs to be a bit more smooth...sudden cut offs..sudden changes in sound levels, etc...

So  a few questions:

1. By pushing it a lot and staying within a higher power output band did you effectively reduce its range ?

2. Presuming you could have gotten to the "next-exit" or a charging station. How long would it have taken to re-charge ?

3. thought it was funny how you considered getting stuck on the highway being bad but getting stuck on a normal road not bad :D

Personally I thought you guys covered a lot more in your Allion/Premio review than the Leaf review though :)

Also, perhaps you should just have one thread for your reviews ?

@iRage the AL blog is different to AL forum. For each blog posts, there will be a dedicated thread to comment and It's designed to highlight each blog posts published by the blog owner. Therefore it's better to comment under respective blog post.

Thank you very much "The Stig". Hope you have subscribed the channel. :D 

In fact, in the previous version also, no one specifically manufactured a 1.5L "G-Superior". It was just a matter of sticking the badges by the local importers (before or after shipment). The Electrically adjustable seats came standard in the EX-Package in the previous version after the year 2013 or 12. So they marketed the thing as "G-Superior" 1.5L with electric seats. The truth is, G-Superior is only for the 1.8L and not for electric seats or anything. :) 

EDIT :

The truth is, G-Superior is only for the 2.0L
