The Alphard was introduced as Toyota's top-end minivan in May 2002, and its second-generation models were released in May 2008.

As with the first generation model, the new Alphard shared chassis components with the Estima. The low-height, low-floor package lowered the center of gravity, while the vehicle's wide tread and long wheelbase enabled a more spacious cabin and improved ease of entry and exit, while improving handling, stability, and ride comfort. The power plant was either a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder (2AZ-FE) or a newly introduced 3.5-liter V6 (2GR-FE), the former being combined with a Super CVT and the latter with a 6-speed automatic transmission. A 7-seater and an 8-seater were available. Starting with the second generation, the Alphard was made available only through the Toyopet sales channel. For the Netz sales channel, the Vellfire (a sister car of the Alphard) was introduced to replace the discontinued Alphard V. A hybrid model was added to the Vellfire and Alphard lines in August 2011.

"Alphard," which is derived from the Greek word "alpha," was intended to evoke an image of the brightest star in a constellation.
