Bookings to be accepted from this month in Japan.
Following a leak that revealed its front end, new images of the 2017 Toyota Previa (Toyota Estima in Japan) have surfaced online, courtesy of a blog on Livedoor. Japanese blogs suggest that the bookings for the family MPV in Japan will open this month.
The 2017 Toyota Previa's rear-end appears to be largely identical to the current model, save for new taillamp graphics and minor revisions. It's not as drastic as the front-end, which receives sharp headlamps, slim LED DRLs, gaping hexagonal grille and a sporty bumper, chrome detailing in the upper grille that connects both headlamps, and additional chrome embellishments across the side profile. The 2017 Previa will offer a dual tone red and black exterior color combination in its top-end guise.
The interior has also undergone a significant revision. While the basic design is retained, the 2017 Toyota Previa features a redesigned multifunction steering wheel, piano black center console that neatly houses a large touchscreen infotainment display, new silver detailing across the dashboard and a revised instrument cluster with a multi-info display.
For the 2017 model, Toyota will offer a choice between Safety Sense P and C packages in Japan. The former includes pre-collision system with pedestrian detection function and radar cruise control, while the Safety Sense C package comes with pre-collision system, Lane Departure Alert and Automatic High Beam as standard.
Reports suggest that the 2017 Toyota Previa will only be sold as a hybrid model in Japan, with the powertrain having the 2.4-litre 2AZ-FXE petrol engine capable of 110 kW (150 PS) and 190 Nm of torque.
