Liposuction, Botox and cosmetic surgery have not been required to give Toyota’s Previa a fresh new appearance. Just a few gentle styling changes have been made to regroom the versatile MPV, such is the essential strength of its contemporary ‘one-wave’ design.
More crucial to its all-round appeal is an upgrading of its standard specification to provide enhanced levels of safety and convenience, all at no extra cost to the motorist.
From 16 June all new Previa models will be equipped with front side airbags, in addition to the driver and passenger airbags. Furthermore, all seats in the seven-seat versions are now fitted with three-point seatbelts. The quality appeal of the spacious cabin has been heightened with darker grey tones for the trim and the finish of the audio system surround has been refined.
The standard audio package now includes a six-speaker radio tuner with single CD player and the redesigned steering wheel incorporates remote audio controls.
On the outside the dynamic, flowing shape of the Previa has been given extra emphasis with a deeper, reprofiled front bumper section with integrated fog lights. The front grille has also been revised and the front and rear lamp units have been redesigned for a bolder appearance.
The Previa now rides on larger, 16-inch wheels, which are steel with full-sized covers on the GS grade and five-spoke alloy (with locking nuts) on GLS and CDX versions. Two new body colours are available: Astral Black and Cornsilk.
