Toyota Previa Overview

The Toyota Previa is a four or five-door minivan offered in three generations. It used to be the second-largest minivan in the stable of Toyota Motor Corporation after the Toyota Alphard. The Toyota Previa features a lengthened body detailed with an iconic curved roof that aids its aerodynamic capability and sliding doors on both sides. Inside, it offers a lavish interior packed with amenities seven passengers will adore. The Toyota Previa is powered by a 2.4L engine paired with a seven-speed Super CVT automatic transmission. It is offered in White Pearl Crystal Shine, Silver Metallic, Ice Titanium Mica Metallic, Black, Red Mica Metallic, and Sparkling Black Pearl Crystal Shine.

In other parts of the world, Toyota Motor Corporation marketed the minivan as the Toyota Estima, the Toyota Tarago, Jinhui Previa, Beijing Zhonglian Previa, and the Hongxing HX6482. In 1992, two smaller versions of the Toyota Previa were introduced in Japan named as the Toyota Estima Lucida and the Toyota Estima Emina.
