Toyota Crown Comfort
|Body style(s)||4-door notchback|
The Toyota Crown Comfort is a automobile specially designed for use as a taxicab. It competes with the Nissan Crew and the Nissan Cedric Y31. To reduce unnecessary cost and weight and increase interior space, the more luxurious dashboard and fitments (including leather seats) of the Crown Royal were replaced with less bulky all-plastic versions. Two generations were produced, the LS110 and the LXS10.
The Comfort is powered by either the 3C diesel engine or LPG. The Japanese model has fender mirrors and an automatic (driver-activated) rear door. The Crown Comfort is the most popular taxicab in Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, but is gradually falling out of favour as better-appointed vehicles become available at competitive cost.
