This mini MPV comes with some very impressive fittings where it is meant for city driving with compact body. Despite that, it is still pretty comfortable and the small size don’t seem to deter them from giving you more than you can imagine. They have put in a panoramic sunroof with this one while space too are quite abundant.
For the European market, Toyota said that there will be 2 engine choices which are (as usual) the petrol and diesel versions respectively. The petrol version is powered up by a 1.3 liter Dual VVT-I (Variable Valve Timing-intelligent) mated with a 6 speed manual transmission gearbox or a 7 speed CVT that comes with a sequential paddle shifters on the steering wheel. On the other hand, the diesel model comes with a 1.4 liter direct injection common rail (D-4D) engine that is paired with a automatic transmission gearbox.
As mentioned, it is not overly big for an MPV where it measures at 3,990 mm long, 1,695 mm wide, 1,595mm high and a wheelbase of 2,550mm. Judging from the pictures, you will see that Toyota is very serious about entering the European market as they have updated their design direction that goes along to the contemporary skins of the modern European car.
So far, no news on whether other markets like the Americas or other parts of Asia would be involved but if it is successful then we might just get it here pretty soon. After all, the mini-MPV category models are not so hotly contested in the United States as yet but with an in-car touch screen multimedia enabled entertainment system, it could well be one of the major elements to start enticing the other markets.
