With the recent significant increase in price for Toyota Alphard and Vellfire due to supply shortage and the implementation of SST, a businesswoman consulted Carzone for a recommendation on how to save money while still getting a high-quality vehicle for her business needs. Carzone suggested a money-saving solution by purchasing the lowest spec 8-seater model X and converting it into a higher spec vehicle.

Results: The satisfied businesswoman saved money by purchasing a lower-spec vehicle and converting it into a higher-spec vehicle for her business needs.


Carzone’s solution included an Alphard facelift conversion with an M-look body kit consisting of a front bumper, headlamps, grill, skirting, side panels, rear bumper, and lamps. They also replaced the low-spec wheels with aftermarket 19-inch wheels with fresh tires, completed with a paint job and installation.


Carzone’s Alphard concept 81 features a black and white interior with diagonal-patterned stitching. They replaced the 8-seater seats with 7-seater ones with new rails, retrofitted an aftermarket center console with a wireless charger and USB socket, and added an aftermarket dark hairline stainless steel step panel with EL lighted lights. Carzone also did reupholstery works on all seats and trims, interior paint on trims, and added a carbon series water transfer lamination on all trims. The final touch was the Carzone RGB/meteor fiber optic roof lining conversion and dark series black carpets.
