Toyota Launches Fully Redesigned 'Voxy' and 'Noah' Minivans in Japan

Class-first Full Hybrid System Achieves Fuel Efficiency of 23.8 km/L Under MLIT JC08 Test Cycle

Tokyo, Jan 20, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation announces today the Japanwide launch of the completely redesigned "Voxy" minivan through "Netz" dealers, and the completely 7redesigned "Noah" minivan through "Toyota Corolla" dealers, with a hybrid model scheduled for release on February 14.

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.

On the environmental performance front, a class-first(2) full hybrid system (THS II with reduction gear(3)) achieves exceptional cruising ranges and fuel efficiency for this class, at 23.8 km/L under the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism's (MLIT) JC08 test cycle. Gasoline engine models also include features such as an idling-stop function and the new Super CVT-i, with its class-leading gear-ratio range, which enable them to achieve class-leading4 fuel efficiency for gasoline engine models at 16.0 km/L under the MLIT JC08 test cycle for two-wheel drive models with idling-stop.

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.

Welcab wheelchair-adapted models have undergone substantial improvements including being equipped with a manual forward ramp and other features for wheelchair users. The product line-up has also been expanded and now includes Welcab Friendmatic Seat models with wheelchair storage and support for moving to and from the driver's seat.
