I guess its sold with different names: Estima/Lucida/Previa.

First snap taken on June 27, 2003. The second taken on May 29, 2005.
Same car, still kept in very good condition, now owned by a well known celebrity.



Like the car, its a good people's carrier. The white especially looks much better than all the other colors. Blue is also good. The quality and finish of the car is nice. The shape looks awesome. A very good upgrade from the older generation.

My aunt has one of these too....got it a few years back ...was at my house for few weeks..... nice smooth drive but really not my choice to drive around in it....rather be driven....but its rather fun to drive it on open roads i must admit......loaded with goodies like xenon lamps and rear view camera etc.Perfect car for a big family trip out station.

Default re: Toyota Previa

I saw this car for the first time in Dubai recently - liked it so much that googled on returning and stumbled on this thread. If I ever need a family MUV / people mover, I'd love to own this instead of an Innova - would happily pay a decent premium over Innova for this. I guess its too much to expect Toyota to launch this in India though. Innova seems to be good enough for most families and the higher budget customers must be flocking to the Fortuner. This will either cannibalize or get cannibalised within the T family in India.

Dude its like Deja vu.. Me too just returned from a Holiday in Dubai and first thing I did is google Toyota Previa and stumbled on this thread. I think this can be a perfect car for replacing the Innova. Toyota should seriously consider launching this here, maybe as a replacement for Innova since that has probably aged now and nearing its end.
