Toyota has put in a bunch of tech inside the bZ4X's interior and all-new multimedia system.

Interior Space Designed for Comfort and Cargo Functionality

The bZ4X cockpit embodies a new generation of mobility with a design that helps the driver keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Thanks to the BEV-dedicated platform, the engineering team achieved an extra wide interior cabin that results in a spacious, quiet and relaxing space for driver and passengers alike. The cabin allows for ample legroom for both front and rear seats as well as copious side-to-side space in the rear – further contributing to a feeling of home-like comfort.

Piano-black parts are featured throughout the vehicle, enhancing the quality feel, while a satin material is found on the higher Limited grade to exude a feeling of luxury. A soft-touch material is also added to the dashboard for a premium touch.

For interior color options, the 2023 bZ4X is offered in Softex®/Fabric-trimmed in Black for the XLE grade, and options of Softex®-trimmed in Black or Softex®-trimmed in Light Gray for the Limited grade.

With the roominess one would expect from an SUV, the placement of surrounding elements is also engineered with purpose. The unique instrument panel and precision-placed MID screen expands the vehicle’s feeling of space, while also emphasizing meter visibility to help keep driver’s sight lines up and on the road. Soundproofing glass and wind-noise reduction features provide a quiet refuge from the world outside. The available fixed panoramic roof provides a feeling of openness to bring the outside environment into the vehicle when needed, and a power sunshade to keep it out when not needed.

The hub of the cockpit is positioned around a shared center console that functions like a table with storage for a smartphone with available wireless charging coupled with a transparent lid. The accessible USB ports (A and C) offer power and connection points in convenient locations. The door handles are a specialized shape designed to be more ergonomic, making them easier to grip.

Functional Design for Intuitive Tech

The interior styling of bZ4X exudes a certain familiarity, with premium finishes, designed to make everything easily accessible, from the USB ports to the all-new multimedia system.

The bZ4X comes standard with a 12.3-inch widescreen Toyota Audio Multimedia system, designed and engineered by Toyota’s Texas-based Connected Technologies team. bZ4X drivers will be at the ready thanks to a wide range of enhanced connectivity and convenience features, including being Over-the-Air (OTA) updatable. Users can interact with the system through intuitive touch and voice activation controls. With an included three-year trial, the latest Connected Service, Drive Connect, gives access to Intelligent Assistant, Cloud Navigation and Destination Assist. With Intelligent Assistant, simple phrases like “Hey Toyota” awakens the system for voice activated commands to search for directions, find Points of Interest (POI), adjust audio controls, change the cabin temperatures and more. Cloud Navigation, the available onboard navigation solution, utilizes the cloud to download the latest available map, traffic and routing information. To ensure users have the most up-to-date search capabilities, POI search is provided by Google Points-of-Interest data. Destination Assist also gives access to 24/7 live agent assistance to locate the next destination.

The new Toyota Audio Multimedia allows for dual Bluetooth phone connectivity, with support for standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. With further connectivity, the bZ4X offers an available Wi-Fi Connect subscription that offers 4G connectivity for up to five devices – turning the bZ4X into an AT&T Hotspot. Adding to the already robust offering of audio playback ability with HD Radio, USB data and a SiriusXM® Platinum Plan 3-month trial subscription, Wi-Fi Connect also enables the new Integrated Streaming feature, providing the ability to link separate Apple Music® and Amazon Music subscriptions to the vehicle for onboard control.

For those looking for an enhanced audio experience, the bZ4X comes available with a JBL® Premium Audio system with 9 speakers, including an 8-channel HiD 800-watt amplifier and 9-in. subwoofer.

Each bZ4X comes with a host of additional standard Connected Services. Safety Connect includes an Emergency Assistance Button (SOS), 24/7 Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notification, Stolen Vehicle Locator and Collision Assistance with a 1-year trial service. Service Connect gives drivers the capability to receive Vehicle Health Reports, Maintenance Alerts and reminders with a 3-year trial.

With the Toyota App, users can stay connected to their bZ4X with Remote Connect service, included as a 3-year trial service. Users can activate headlights, a horn alert, buzzer and unlock the rear hatch. The remote climate features include the ability for in-cabin temperature controls, including remote activation of the available seat heaters/ventilators, steering wheel heater, defroster and the ability to schedule a timer to activate in a daily routine. For added convenience, the bZ4X is the first Toyota vehicle to also incorporate an enhanced remote vehicle start feature.

With the bZ4X Limited grade, drivers also have access to the available Toyota-first Digital Key, a feature of the Remote Connect service. Owners can now share vehicle access with ease. Making it simple to lock, unlock and start the vehicle all through the Toyota App.

Remote Charging capabilities are also included with Remote Connect on the bZ4X, which includes the ability to check charging status, start/stop charging with a vehicle that is already plugged in and even edit charging schedules, allowing for enhanced controls of the bZ4X’s charging. The Toyota App also provides an easy-to-use map to find charging station locations near you or along your route.
