Toyota Vellfire 2.5 Elegance Review
A-Class Carrier

Story and Photos by Jeremy Torr

Remember the "A-Team" on TV? Their van was the business; it handled brilliantly, could outrun any police car, and was equipped to cope with everything from rocket engine overhaul to brain surgery and multiple high-speed smashes. So when Toyota offered me a Vellfire to review I almost went and got a Mohican haircut.

Lucky I didn't, because the Vellfire (despite the aggressive name) is aimed at a very different market. Forget fugitive commandos on the brink of society; think wealthy business figures who can afford a driver but need more quality entertainment space than an ordinary old Bentley or Rolls-Royce. The Vellfire is a seriously effective luxury vehicle.

Toyota has taken a brave approach with its in-your-face design, but their bravery (allied to some smart design touches and well-specced interior and mechanicals) has paid off in spades. The Vellfire is possibly one of the most practical yet cosseting vehicles I have driven this year - it's a real surprise.
