We assuredly accept some appealing solid but actionable capacity on the accessible bunched 3-row MPV that Toyota and Daihatsu accept been alive on, appointed to be launched abutting year. This is additionally the aforementioned agent that will be the abject of the new Perodua MPV to be launched in Q3 of 2009, aloof in time for Hari Raya.
The chat is that the Toyota adaptation will be alleged the Toyota Passo Sette while the Daihatsu adaptation will be alleged the Daihatsu Boon Ruminous, and will amount amid 1,380,000 yen to 1,880,000 yen in Japan.
The Toyota adaptation has a advanced end and headlamps that are actual similiar to the accustomed bearing Toyota Vios. In archetypal Toyota appearance in alive absolutely how some Japanese adulation individuality and customization, the Japanese adaptation will additionally get an alternating advanced end that is added adventurous and aggressive. The Perodua adaptation will artlessly accept its own advanced end, with a new grille, bonanza and headlamps.
Toyota additionally has an absolute bunched 3-row MPV alleged the Toyota Sienta so it would be fair to analyze this new MPV to the Sienta, and additionally the Passo/Boon/Myvi. From the table aloft we can see that the new MPV is added as able-bodied as best in both breadth and wheelbase compared to the Sienta and the Myvi. A 2750mm wheelbase is absorbing – that’s as continued as the Subaru Exiga, which is absolutely a big vehicle!
It’s additionally absolutely accessible from alike photos that the new Perodua MPV will be amid the Sienta and the Myvi in agreement of acme as the Sienta is absolutely tall, but this new MPV loses some of that acme for a sleeker contour that is about added adequate alfresco of Japan. Afterwards all, Indonesia is accustomed to be a assembly centermost for the car in ASEAN.
Something additionally actual absorbing is the actuality that it is according to the Wish in agreement of wheelbase but decidedly beneath and additionally narrower. Another key aberration amid this new MPV and the Toyota Sienta is the actuality that the Sienta has sliding doors for the rear doors while this car uses accustomed beat doors.
The primary agent for the Japanese bazaar will be the 1.5 liter 3SZ-VE bearing 109 PS at 6,000rpm and 141Nm of torque, but a 1.3 liter adaptation could be accessible for the ASEAN bazaar back the Avanza 1.3 was accustomed absolutely able-bodied here.
The Japanese bazaar autogenous will affection a dashboard with a centrally-mounted speedo and additionally a dash-mounted shifter (CVT for FWD, 4-speed auto for 4WD). ASEAN versions could see this about-face batten confused to the breadth amid the seats instead as we’ve apparent this appear afore with the Myvi (Passo) and the Nautica (Terios).
From the Toyota artefact photos of the autogenous leaked by MagX, the additional row looks like it can either fit 3 adults but I anticipate 2 adults and 1 adolescent would be added comfortable. At atomic it comes with 3 headrests, admitting this may be bare in our bazaar for amount cutting. The third row is a austere 2-seater.
The additional and third row can be bankrupt bottomward for a collapsed loading area. The loading breadth is 1330mm advanced at the rear-most breadth but back you bend bottomward the rear seats, this amplitude reduces to 1045mm because of the rear caster arches bulging into the cabin. The loading breadth acme is 858mm.
So, there you accept it. There’s no cogent at the moment which bazaar will get the new Toyota bunched MPV first, but it’s either amid one of the ASEAN countries (Indonesia in particular), or Japan. One accessible actualization agenda could see a added “sophisticated” (dash-mounted shifter, advantage for DVD player, etc) Japan adaptation apparent first, again a low amount ASEAN version, and assuredly the Perodua adaptation in Q3 2009.
Look afterwards the jump for one added ancillary contour attempt of the nw Toyota/Daihatsu/Perodua 3-row bunched MPV.
