Toyota Crown – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A study of the Toyota Crown reveals a lot about the role of cars in our social discourse. I spoke about the Crown as a window into understanding the social significance of automobiles – as a text that unravels much about the world we live in. Take a look …

The Crown’s history and reputation has given it prominence in the Toyota lineup, as it is one of the few current Toyota models to carry its own unique insignia for the model line with the current Crown having a stylized crown emblem on the grille and steering wheel along with inspiring the names of its smaller progenitors. The Corona, introduced as a smaller companion to the Crown means “crown” in Latin and was initially exported as the “Tiara”, while the Corolla took its name from the regal chaplet. The Camry’s name is derived from the Japanese phrase kanmuri (冠, かんむり) meaning “little crown” and the Toyota Scepter took its name from the sceptre, an accessory to a crown.
