Toyota Previa Gains New Looks And Extra Features | Part Two

The Previa is powered by a choice of a 154bhp 2.4-litre VVT-i petrol engine or 114bhp 2.0-litre D-4D diesel power plant. The petrol engine now meets the Euro IV standards for emissions and is offered with a choice of five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The D-4D diesel is available with the manual gearbox only.

Three trim levels are offered: GS, GLS and CDX. The GS comes with eight seats, the GLS with a choice of seven or eight seats and the CDX exclusively as a seven-seater.

Standard equipment on all versions includes driver, front passenger and front side airbags, digital climate control air conditioning, electric windows all round, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, tonneau cover, ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, two ISOFIX child seat mounts, remote central locking, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors and front arm rests.

The GLS adds roof rails and five-spoke alloy wheels, air conditioning with separate controls for the rear of the cabin and cruise control. The CDX package includes DVD-base turn-by-turn satellite navigation with Electronic Traffic Avoidance (ETA), rear darkened privacy glass and front and rear sunroofs. Leather upholstery is now an option for both eight and seven-seat models.

On the road prices remain unchanged, as do insurance groupings of 11E for petrol models and 12E for D-4D diesels.
