The Toyota Noah is an eight-seater MPV with two rear sliding doors built by Toyota Motor Company and sold only in Asia. A five-seater version without the third seat row is available (YY grade). Its predecessor was the Toyota Liteace Noah. The Noah has a twin version named Toyota Voxy. However, Toyota Voxy is more lower than Toyota Noah, thus it sometimes gets stuck to speed-breakers.
The Toyota Noah has class-leading performance. Its 154 hp engine takes 9.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h (60 mph) up to a top speed of 175 km/h. It also has a smoother ride and better handling than the last generation Noah.
First launched in 2001, it is positioned below the Estima and Alphard, and above the Sienta. Consequently, its main competitors are the Honda StepWGN and the Nissan Serena. The current design of the Noah was released in 2007. This version has a 2.0 L gasoline direct injection engine, CVT and standard front wheel drive or available 4WD. For model year 2007 on Japanese models only, G-BOOK, a subscription telematics service, is offered as an option.
