Arrow Toyota launches fully redesigned Voxy and Noah

Toyota has issued the following press release:

Toyota Motor Corporation announced the nationwide launch in Japan of the completely redesigned Voxy through "Netz" dealers, and completely redesigned Noah through "Toyota Corolla" dealers on 27 June.

Since their debuts as new vehicles featuring advanced styling and comfort for all passengers, the first-generation Voxy and Noah, launched in November 2001, have enjoyed the support of numerous customers, with cumulative sales of approximately 800,000 vehicles, and have led the market as the epitome of the minivan.

The new, second-generation models unveiled today extend the advanced functioning of the first generation, including an interior that pays particular attention to providing comfort, ease of use and a relaxed driving environment. At the same time, the Voxy has stylishness at its heart while the Noah gives off a feeling of familiarity.

Specifically, both vehicles are equipped with highly functional features that make them easy to use for all passengers, including the world's first* "one-touch folding" third-row seats and second-row "long-slide multi-use rotating" seats with a child seat mode. In addition, they adopt state-of-the-art technology such as a newly developed 2.0-liter engine outfitted with a "Valvematic" continuously variable valve lift mechanism for superior driving and environmental performance as well as an Intelligent Parking Assist system, satisfying the diverse needs of customers for a comfortable driving experience and display of strong individuality in minivans of just the right size.

Vehicle Outline

Stylish Voxy, Familiar Noah

* Based on the Toyota brand design philosophy "Vibrant Clarity," the two vehicles share the expression of simple yet powerful dynamism as their theme, while emphasizing their respective individual characteristics. The Voxy features a stylish and individualistic design, while the Noah pursues a high-quality, familiar design.

* The aerodynamic versions of the two vehicles employ aerodynamic components such as a large bumper and rear spoiler, overhanging wheel flares, and 16-inch wheels to create the image of a low center of gravity and a sporty and wide feel (Voxy ZS Noah Si & S).


* The front end creates a sharp surface that creates the look of a condensed form packed with power. The stepped headlights, one of the distinctive design features of the Voxy, express stylishness and individuality.

* The side emphasizes the Voxy's simple yet active feel through the door profile with full, curved surfaces, the flush fender lines and the sharp character lines that extend from the front to the rear.

* The trapezoidal silhouette of the rear evokes a sense of stability while the clear and advanced design of the combination taillights gives a cool and stylish impression.


* The front end creates a familiar and striking impression with a round three-dimensional body and deeply sculpted form extending from the grille to the hood.

* The side emphasizes the simple yet active feel and modern look of the Noah through the door profile with numerous curved surfaces and the J-shaped character lines of the front fenders.

* The rear creates a sense of breadth with combination taillights that wrap around the sides and a feeling of stability with a trapezoidal silhouette, while the red combination taillights emphasize familiarity.

Comfort and Ease of Use for a Relaxing Interior with Superior Equipment

Seat Structure

* The third seats offer the world's first "one-touch extra space" function that lifts the seats up and folds them away with a single touch.

* The second row seats are long-slide multi-use rotating seats with a child seat mode. The seats rotate toward the exterior (60 degrees on the passenger seat side and 30 degrees on the driver's seat side) and feature a design that facilitates the buckling and unbuckling of young children into child restraint systems. The second row seats can slide backward and forward a total of 470mm.

* The middle seat of the second row seats folds up to create a walkthrough from the front seats to the third row seats.

* Vehicles with two rows of seats (Voxy Trans-X and Noah YY) provide plenty of cargo space. The space can be arranged to suit almost any need through various combinations of the three deck boards.


* The package provides a body size that affords excellent handling and a comfortable interior.

* The distance between the ground and the surface of the front seat has been reduced and low steps and handgrips have been added to facilitate boarding and exiting.

* Additional handgrips have been adopted to make children's boarding and exiting easy.

* Visibility has been enhanced by attaching the side mirrors to the door panels and making the pillars slimmer.

Convenient and Advanced Features

* The automatic air conditioner features independent temperature controls for the driver's side and passenger's side, as well as a clean-air filter with a pollen-removal mode.

* A mirror for viewing the rear seats enhances communication among passengers.

* An Intelligent Parking Assist system supports steering when parallel parking and backing into a parking space.

* "Panoramic Super-live Sound System" features speakers with a new structure that uses the roof panel as a diaphragm, producing a dramatic expansion of the sound field.

* The Smart Entry & Start System employs a key that does not need to be removed from the driver's pocket to lock and unlock the doors, as well as a push button for starting the engine.

* The HDD navigation system (compatible with G-Book mX and G-Book mX Pro telematics services) is equipped with advanced navigation features, including "Maps on Demand" for updating the navigation system maps with the latest information as well as a variety of multimedia functions.


* The instrument panel, with its three-layer structure, and the modern center console, which appears to be floating, create a sense of innovation and expansiveness. The Optitron meters designed for visibility, driving status indicator and gate-type shifter located in the center console embody both advanced design and functionality.

New Powertrain Achieves Superior Driving and Environmental Performance

* The newly developed 2.0-liter 3ZR-FAE and 3ZR-FE engines employ Dual VVT-i (Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent) that optimizes both intake and exhaust valve timing. The 3ZR-FAE engine is also combined with a Valvematic continuously variable valve lift structure that continuously controls the intake valve lift volume and valve opening and closing timing for optimal performance in all speed ranges. The result is low CO2 emissions, fuel efficiency at the top levels of its class*, power for rapid acceleration and enhanced acceleration responsiveness.

* All vehicles are equipped with the Super CVT-i (Super Continuously Variable Transmission-intelligent), and models with the 2.0-liter engine with Valvematic feature a highly responsive, seven-speed Sports Sequential Shiftmatic transmission with a paddle shift-type shift lever for the feel of a manual transmission.

* The electric power steering smoothly varies the amount of steering assistance to provide optimum steering control according to vehicle speed.

* The highly rigid body together with optimal tuning of the suspension provide excellent handling and cruising stability as well as a comfortable ride.
