The 14th-generation Crown was released in December 2012, with second-generation hybrid models entering into production in January 2013.

The engine was downsized from a 3.5-liter V6 (2GR-FSE) to a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (2AR-FSE). The lengthwise-mounted 2AR-FSE engine was based on Camry's 2AR-FXE, to which the latest D-4S direct injection system was added. The Crown's front-engine, rear-drive hybrid system combined this engine with a motor with a maximum torque of 300 Nm, producing the driving performance on a par with a 3-liter V6 gasoline engine while markedly improving the fuel economy from 14.0 km/l to 23.2 km/l under the JC08 test cycle. In addition, the vehicle price became much more affordable.

Unlike gasoline-powered versions of the Crown Royal and Crown Athlete series, the hybrid models were standard-equipped with the Pop-up Hood system. In the unfortunate event of a collision with a pedestrian, the system could automatically elevate the rear of the hood to mitigate the impact on the pedestrian's head.
