TOYOTA Previa 2003-2005

Body style: Van
Segment: Large MPV
Production years: 2003, 2004, 2005

Toyota unveiled the second's generation Previa facelift in 2000 and, in 2003, the Japanese carmaker tried to do a facelift on it.

Why just "tried" and not "did"? Because you'll need a Toyota specialist to see the differences between the 2000 and the 2003 model-year. It shared the same platform with the Camry, which was highly appreciated for its comfortable ride and reliability. The Previa took all of these and added more space.

Its ovoid-shape design with angular headlights remained similar to non facelifted version. Basically, the windshield and the hood were part of the same line, which was extended over the roof to the vehicle's back. Following the biodesign trend, the Previa featured a curved tailgate instead of a flat one as some other MPVs on the market.

Inside, the car offered room for up to seven adults, and there was even some trunk left after filling all the seats. Toyota offered the Previa with an option for captain seats in the middle row. The design team provided an exciting dashboard, with the dials installed in the middle so everyone could see them. Circular and waved lines were used all over the interior, from the door panels to the ashtray covers. Strangely, only the air-vents were squared, like they were some left-overs from other vehicles.

The first generation was criticized for not having a V6 engine. It was not the same situation with the second generation, which Toyota offered with either an inline-four or a 3.0-liter V6. For selected markets, the Previa was fitted with a turbodiesel engine.
