While the hardtop models of the Crown attained the flagship status and were fully remodeled in October 1991, the sedans continued to be in their eighth generation (launched in September 1987), until they finally had a complete makeover in December 1995. At the same time, the Crown Comfort model was introduced for use as a taxi. Since major sedan customers included government agencies and corporations, the styling remained both traditional and conservative. In terms of mechanical structures, however, latest technologies were liberally employed, including the monocoque body and the front and rear double wishbone suspensions.

The body came in two sizes, one classified in the compact "5 number" category and the other in the larger "3 number" category, while delivering greater ride comfort for rear passengers than the previous models did. The available engines included VVT-i inline 6-cylinder DOHC 3-liter 220 PS, 2.5-liter 180 PS, and 2-liter 135 PS gasoline-powered units, and a 4-cylinder 97 PS turbo diesel unit. Although a rear-wheel-drive configuration was standard, a full-time 4-wheel-drive configuration was also available to handle snow-covered or other slippery road conditions.
