Chronology
Predecessor Toyota LiteAce Noah

The Toyota Noah (トヨタ・ノア, Toyota Noa) is a seven or eight-seater MPV with two rear sliding doors built by Toyota and sold in Asia and Africa. A five-seater version without the third seat row is available (YY grade). Its predecessor was the Toyota LiteAce Noah. The Noah has two twin versions, named Toyota Voxy (トヨタ・ヴォクシー, Toyota Vokushī) and Toyota Esquire (トヨタ・エスクァイア, Toyota Esukwaia). The Noah is exclusive to Toyota Corolla Store Japanese dealerships, the Voxy is exclusive to Toyota Netz, while the Esquire is exclusive to Toyopet Store.

The Noah's 154 hp engine takes 9.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h (60 mph) up to a top speed of 175 km/h. Its sales in Japan are enhanced by the fact that the exterior dimensions are in compliance with the Japanese Governments dimension regulations for vehicles classified as compact, and the engine displacement is kept at 2000cc so as to keep the annual road tax obligation affordable for private purchase.

History[edit]

First launched in November 2001, it is positioned below the Estima and Alphard, and above the Sienta. Its main competitors are the Honda StepWGN, Mazda Biante and the Nissan Serena.

The second generation Noah was released in 2007. This version has a 2.0 L gasoline direct injection engine, CVT and standard front wheel drive or available four wheel drive. The second generation Noah was discontinued in Japan when the third generation Noah was released in January 2014. However, the facelifted second generation Noah, which was released in 2010, was produced in Indonesia as the Toyota NAV1 which continued until January 2017.

For model year 2007 on Japanese models only, G-BOOK, a subscription telematics service, is offered as an option.

In Indonesia, this car was launched on December 11, 2012, in two trim levels named G and V. This car was launched to fill the gap between the Alphard and Innova. The engine used is the 2.0 L 3ZR-FAE petrol inline-four.[3]

In 2014, the Indonesian NAV1 had 3 trim levels: G, V and V Limited, all with CVT transmission only.[4]

The Indonesian NAV1 was discontinued in 2017 due to low demand. It will replaced by the Indonesian third generation Voxy (equivalent to the Japanese market) that will be unveiled soon before the 2017 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show and will be launched in that show in August 2017.[5]

The Third Generation Toyota Noah was introduced in January 2014 bringing in a new design language, new safety systems, new interior, and for the first time an engine start stop system to improve fuel economy. The Noah is Toyota's medium ranged MPV sitting in between the Toyota Sienta and the Toyota Estima. Just like its rivals the Nissan Serena and Honda Stepwgn this family MPV (minivan) is aimed at family with children rather than for chauffeur business which is reserved for its bigger brother the Alphard/Vellfire. The Toyota Noah is now currently available not only in Japan but also in Hong Kong, which is Toyota's other major market for the Noah. The 2014 Noah introduces a new more aggressive front and rear bumpers and redesigned head lights. The interior has become more family friendly incorporating side window blinds to block out the sun and other various luxurious features such as many adjustments for the middle row captain seats. Furthermore, it is also the first Toyota MPV to receive a one-touch sliding doors. The third generation Noah/Voxy/Esquire also receives Toyota's T-Connect services including a 10" inch infotainment display, with full navigation, ETC unit, online services, wireless phone charger, Noah Panoramic Live Sound System (8 Speaker), rear parking camera with guidance lines, USB/AUX inputs as well as Toyota Safety Sense C which incorporates features such as collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane assist, as well as high beam assist.
