The Allion was introduced in December 2001 as a compact sedan to succeed the Carina. It shared the platform with the Premio that was introduced at the same time. Compared with the seventh and last generation model of the Carina, the wheelbase and the height were increased by 120 mm and 60 mm, respectively, securing the spacious interior comparable to that of a larger sedan. Besides the basic front-engine, front-wheel-drive (FF) configuration, a V-flex 4-wheel-drive (4WD) layout was also available.

The Allion used three varieties of the 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve VVT-i EFI engine: a 2-liter D-4 direct injection type unit (1AZ-FSE) with an output of 152 PS, a 1.8-liter type unit (1ZZ-FE) that produced 132 PS (FF model) or 125 PS (4WD model), and a 1.5-liter type unit (1NZ-FE) with 109 PS.

The D-4 engine model used a Super CVT automatic transmission, while other models came with a Super ECT automatic transmission. The front suspension used a MacPherson strut system, whereas the rear suspension used either a torsion beam (FF model) or a double wishbone system (4WD model).
