The first generation Allion and Premio were launched on 25 December 2001. The Allion replaced the Toyota Carina, a model that first appeared in 1970. The Premio is the successor of the Toyota Corona and the Corona Premio.
The Allion has an emphasis towards younger buyers in comparison to the Premio sedan, which has a more elegant approach. The Premio and the Allion share the same engines and interior. The Allion can be customized with front spoilers and rear mounted trunk wings, as well as ground effect body parts to enhance the vehicles appearance specially designed and sold by Toyota. The Allion also features rear tilting seats (similar to front seats). The Allion continues the Toyota tradition by being made for taxi usage, driving school and law enforcement versions.
On 20 December 2004, the Allion received a modest restyle with the introduction of LED taillights. The Premio also received an update at the same time.
Both cars were offered with three engine sizes; 1.5-, 1.8- and 2.0-liter. The 2.0-liter model received a CVT automatic; the smaller engines were each fitted with four-speed automatic transmission.
