Toyota Estima MPV to get facelift


If you have been a big fan of the Toyota Estima MPV, then you might be excited to know that they will be giving it a facelift for 2012.


This came 3 years after they last gave the popular MPV a makeover which only had some enhancements to the lights. This time however, Toyota has changed the design of the front where it looks more aggressive now while they have also improved the front grille design as well as the front bumper.

At the back, the new Estima also comes with some new curves as well where they will be putting in some new alloy wheels while they have taken the cue from the Alphard to offer a more luxurious look to this one. Under the hood, you get about the same one in the current version (as with most facelifts) where it comes with either the 2.4 liter, 4 cylinder engine that is paired with a CVT gearbox or the 3.5 liter V6 engine that comes with a 6 speed automatic transmission. They have also kept the LKA (Lane-Keep Assist) system which was already in the new model as well as a S-VSC System which helps to stabilize the car through applying an appropriate steering torque to the steering wheel when needed.
