Looking for a nice minivan with luxurious cabin and powerful engine under its hood? Get ready because the 2016 Toyota Estima model year will be pretty interesting for minivan lovers, but pretty intense for carmakers because loads of new minivans will see the light of the day. Among the new 2016 models will be Toyota’s excellent Estima, dubbed Previa or Tarago in some countries.
This is a perfect model for those with large families. Some women who tend to bring twenty-five suitcases on a trip might also find it attractive.
The current generation of the Estima hasn’t been changed for almost a decade and it is now time for major overhaul. We expect many things will be changed. Let’s check what the 2016 Toyota Estima brings to the table.
Exterior of Toyota Estima
For many people, the exterior design of vehicle is the deciding factor for buying a car. Don’t worry; the 2016 Toyota Estima will charm you with its new design as soon as you see it.
This time, the vehicle will look more aggressive and stylish. Even though it is a minivan, for which people say that it can’t be stylish; Toyota did a pretty great job with the Estima.
The front end of the minivan is decorated with a revamped version of the grille and newly shaped headlights with LED technology. There are also newly designed LED daytime running lights, new side mirrors, and uniquely designed wheels.
The rear end, on the other hand, gets a reshaped diffuser and taillights. The vehicle will get an extended wheelbase, so we will see the new Estima with wider profile. A whole new palette of exterior colors will be offered.
Toyota Estima 2016 Interior
The cabin of the 2016 Toyota Estima will accommodate up to five passengers at the time. All passengers will enjoy great headroom, legroom, and shoulder-room space. The carmaker used bright and warm shades inside of the cabin, so everything looks welcoming and relaxing.
The 2016 Toyota Estima is perfect for long trips. The cabin will feature plenty of infotainment and safety features. Among many others, there are: push-button ignition, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation system, audio system, moon roof, etc.

Under the hood of the 2016 Toyota Estima, you will find a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine. It will be teamed up with a five-speed transmission. Both four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive system are available. The engine of the Estima will be economic and environmental-friendly.
Allegedly, Toyota will offer a hybrid engine too, but official details haven’t been published yet. We believe that the combo will be good for 200 horses, but we will wait for official details before we judge anything.
