The first pictures of the 2013 Toyota Crown have allegedly leaked to the web.

Looking like an all-new model as opposed to a comprehensive refresh, the brochure images reveal the model will look like an unfortunate love child between an Audi A6 and Lexus ES. Jokes aside, the car which is reserved for the Japanese market only has sleek styling and a distinctive grille that will likely prove controversial. Thankfully, the Crown Athlete has a more cohesive appearance due to its unique front fascia and sportier styling.

Inside, there's high quality materials and a pleasing design. Notable highlights include leather upholstery, wood trim and metallic accents. There's also an infotainment system which appears to have two different displays.

Engine options could carryover, but we should learn more in the coming months.
