Meet the new Toyota Noah 1.8X Hybrid (New Facelift). In the line-up of Toyota MPVs, the Noah sits in between the Sienta and the Estima. And just like its Japanese rivals, the Nissan Serena and Honda Stepwgn, it’s targeted at families with children who are looking to optimize the space versus price ratio.
The current (3rd generation) Toyota Noah was introduced in January 2014 and it brought in a slew of new highlights: design language, safety systems, interior, and for the first time, an engine start-stop system to improve fuel economy.
Fresh from its mid-life facelift, the 2017 Noah sports an even more distinctive exterior headlined by a snout which is instantly recognizable by its thick, horizontal slats and revised headlights and the taillights which feature an updated array.
Engine and Performance
The Toyota Noah 1.8X Hybrid (New Facelift) you see here is differentiated from its petrol-only 2-litre sibling by “hybrid” badges and various blue illuminated items in the cabin.
Propelled by a hybrid drive train comprising a 1.8-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine and electric motor/battery combo, mated to an Electro Shiftmatic gearbox, it is one of the most frugal MPVs in its class. It is rated at 134 bhp and 142 Nm.
Comfort Features and Key Equipment Specifications
Among the several other features of the Toyota Noah 1.8X Hybrid (New Facelift) are the Multi-Function steering wheel accompanied by its Keyless engine start, thereby providing you a faster and easier way to start your travel.
Its Cruise Control also adds up to the essential features as well as the electrical retractable side mirrors, LED Headlights and Daytime running lights, auto climate control aircon for a fully comfortable drive.
