The Toyota Noah is the Voxy’s twin and it sits between the Sienta and the Estima in Toyota’s family of MPVs. The Noah is targeted at families with children who are looking for a spacious MPV without breaking the bank or drivers who need the flexibility of a three-row MPV to ferry people and cargo around.
The current 3rd generation Toyota Noah was introduced in early 2014 and featured sweeping changes to its exterior design, safety systems and cabin. New features include engine start-stop to improve fuel economy and one-touch sliding doors. For its cabin, there’s a choice of either seven- or eight-seat configuration, depending on the variant chosen.
The Noah underwent a mid-life makeover in mid-2017 and now sports an even more distinctive design headlined by a snout which is instantly recognisable by the revised grille, headlights and the taillights.
The Toyota Noah 2.0X (8-seater) is propelled by a 2-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine connected to a 7-speed Super CVT-I transmission. With 151 bhp and 193 Nm on tap, the MPV has the fuel efficiency to rival most of its competitors and enough torque to see it through most driving situations. s seven easily with the one-touch sliding doors aiding entry and egress.
Other features include a myriad of LED lights such as coloured front grille and plating moulding, bi-beam headlights, clearance lights and high-mount stop lights as well as front and rear stabilisers, second-row seats with 6:4 spilt tip-up function, passengers’ seatback table, Smart Entry System, Eco drive mode and Optitron meter with illumination control.
