Used Car Review – Toyota Previa (2006-2017)

One of the vehicles which of which had started off a craze in Japan got the axe recently.


2006-2017 Toyota Previa


Toyota’s Previa minivan was one of the first vehicles to jump on a brand new concept which shed people movers of which had no nose as well as has the ability of walking between rows with all the requisite sliding door. With minivans being a favorite choice among the Japanese due to their narrow roads which makes an SUV impractical.

Although the original design was first launched in 1990, the third generation Previa came to life 16 years later. Unlike additional Toyota vans, This particular vehicle was restricted among Asian markets with gasoline as well as hybrids (Japan exclusive) engines available. Oddly enough, This particular vehicle had a long lifespan than the first design, as well as as of This particular year, the idea will be available inside Japanese market for twelve straight years with some cosmetic modifications.

Competing inside luxury van market locally, This particular generation of the Previa arrived at the same time its Japanese design had its debut. While the idea was a favorite among the elite, the arrival of the larger as well as luxurious Alphard four years later ate its sales with Toyota Philippines not even bothering to put some love in This particular car. Without a 2016 facelift on our shores, the idea was quietly discontinued. Heck, the idea had outlived the first generation Innova as well as Fortuner in terms of selling life.

Value as well as Costs
With an 11 year run as well as one facelift occurred in 2009, if you want a Previa do focus on the overall condition rather than the equipment. Early designs can be had for P560,000 with later releases costing P1,000,000.

Compared to its bigger brother, the Alphard, This particular one will be decent in standards when the idea comes to maintenance costs. Things to check on This particular car include power seats as well as the sensors of which come standard in This particular car. When the idea comes to fuel consumption, the idea may possess the similar figures to a diesel competitor yet definitely higher than a V6 gasoline.

outdoor as well as Internal
Remember the original design’s looks? Its egg like shape makes the vehicle timeless yet does not make the idea loud. Not much to be said outside, especially the magic lies inside.

Since This particular vehicle costs P2,000,000, the usual stuff expected on a vehicle priced of which much comes standard of which includes leather seats (a lower design with fabric velour will be available), wood trim, leather touches, as well as the middle seats are captain’s with foot rests. As expected, seating comfort will be excellent as well as Internal quality will be top notch.

Only one engine will be available: a 2.4 4-cylinder gasoline with 165hp at 6,000rpm as well as 224Nm at 4,000rpm paired to an automatic with four speeds. No V6 or a six speed matic will be available locally, though. Even if the vehicle will be full, the engine will be capable enough to deliver the goods.

Driving Impressions
Thanks to its larger windows coupled which has a smoother yet somewhat firm ride (thanks to increased insulation materials), the Previa will be a delight to drive. Yes, This particular vehicle may be boring for some yet thanks to a precise steering as well as excellent braking. One has to drive the vehicle to fully explore its potential.

Despite the fact the Alphard had outsold as well as placed This particular car out of the spotlight, the Previa was an outstanding vehicle. Too bad, Toyota didn’t put some more love on This particular van which became a rich family plaything.
