The Alphards and Vellfires dominate the market here when it comes to luxury vans especially the ones from Toyota. We still do see Estimas as well running about the streets as well. Now in Japan, Toyota has released two redesigned Minivans, called the ‘Voxy’ and ‘Noah’.
The completely redesigned Voxy and Noah are next-generation spacious minivans that provide the roomy interior needed by families and integrate higher levels of fun, utility and fuel economy.
Due to the box-like body and emotional design, both these models share the design concept “emotional box” and fit within the limited “five number”1 Japanese vehicle dimension requirements. With a powerful design that creates a distinct and alluring impression, the front view of these vehicles presents a dangerously exciting elegance for the Voxy and a striking impression for the Noah. An innovative new flat, low-floor has helped realize a class-leading roomy interior, a non-step design with outstanding ease of ingress and egress for children and the elderly, and a user-friendly cargo space.
The vehicles come with a range of appealing comfort-enhancing features, including seven-seater models that feature ultra-long sliding Captain Seats with an 810-mm sliding range in the second row―a first for its class4―in a combination with side-sliding mechanism and one-touch folding third-row seats, an Intelligent Parking Assist system with Easy Set that assists with parking by automatically recognizing the location of parking space lines, a wide-angle color backup guide monitor that expands the viewing angle of rear cameras to approximately 180 degrees, a one-touch electric sliding door with dual easy-closing mechanisms, and a wireless charger for charging smartphones and other mobile devices.
Seems impressive and I really do wonder if those vans will ever make their way outside of Japan.
