All-New Toyota Estima To Debut In April 2016Auto News
Rumour has it that the current Toyota Estima, which is also sold under the Previa nameplate by UMW Toyota Motor, will be replaced by an all-new model in late-April 2016.
Blurry scans of unknown origin, depicting renderings of what the all-new 2016 Toyota Estima/Previa might look like, have been circulating around Japanese-language social media space.
Assuming that the renderings are done with fairly accurate insider information, the all-new Estima will still maintain its characteristic egg-shaped silhouette. There will not be any radical changes to its exterior styling.
The front bumper is likely to feature bolder, two-tone colour inverted trapezoidal grille, flanked by a pair of LED headlamps.
As before, the Estima Hybrid variant will get a different front-end styling treatment.
Currently, non-hybrid Estima models are available with two engine options – a 2.4-litre four-cylinder 2AZ-FE VVT-i and a 3.5-litre 2GR-FE Dual VVT-i V6.
The all-new model however, is expected to drop the 3.5-litre V6 option. The 2.4-litre engine is also expected to either be updated or be replaced with another Dual VVT-i equivalent of a similar capacity.
In terms of dimensions, the all-new model is expected to measure 4,800 mm long, 1,820 mm wide, and 1760 mm tall. Compared to the current model, that’s 5 mm longer, 20 mm wider, 10 mm taller. Wheelbase remains the same at 2,950 mm.
