Despite the Crown name, the Crown Sedan that debuted in August 2001 was different from other models including the Royal Saloon and the Athlete, in that it used the platform of the sixth-generation Mark II (X80 series, 1988-1995). It was in essence an upgraded version of the Crown Comfort, and was mainly aimed for use by government agencies, corporations, and limousine services. In addition to the compact "5 number" version, a "3 number" version with an extended body was also available. All engines had a displacement of 2 liters, including a 6-cylinder gasoline engine, a 6-cylinder liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) engine (1G-GPE) for taxis (available for only one year from October 2001), and a 4-cylinder LPG engine (3Y-PE) that replaced the 6-cylinder version. The Super Deluxe Mild Hybrid version was added to the line in October 2002, which remained in production until April 2008. In August 2008, the LPG engine was upgraded to a DOHC VVT-i (1TR-FPE), enhancing the output from 79 PS to 116 PS.
