Toyota has shown a teaser for two new generation minivans at once – Noah and its sportier “brother” Voxy. Models in the brand’s lineup in Japan sit below the larger Alphard and flagship business van Grenace. Both will replace generations for the third time: the first Noah and Voxy were introduced in 2001, the second generation debuted in 2007, and the third in 2014. The debut of the single-volume cars is scheduled for January 2022, the exact date has not yet been disclosed.
Voxy will traditionally have a more “aggressive” appearance than Noah, which, however, evolves more strongly. Noah’s design has already been revealed thanks to spies who have merged a snapshot from the catalog: the model has acquired a large radiator grille with three wide horizontal louvres. Voxy, on the other hand, has retained its two-story optics, which has been slightly redesigned.
Both models will receive a “sporty” version of the GR Sport with a special body kit and enlarged rims. In the third generation, the Esquire luxury van joined the Voxy and Noah family, but it was decided not to continue production.
As for the dimensions, the length of the minivans will be about 4700 millimeters. They will still be three-row, with seven or eight seats to choose from, and will keep the floor low for easy pick-up and drop-off. Earlier it was reported that the new products could be based on the global architecture of TNGA, which is also based on the American minivan Sienna.
According to Japanese BestCarWeb, both models will receive hybrid powertrains. Prices have already been revealed: Noah at home will cost from 2,868,000 yen ($ 25,300), and Voxy – from 3,288,000 ($ 29,000).
