1992 Toyota Previa

The 1992 Toyota Previa got a number of safety upgrades for the model year, including a driver-side airbag, a center-mounted brake light, and optional anti-lock brakes on the DLX model. These changes made the Previa the first minivan to meet all passenger-car safety requirements.

The 1992 Toyota Previa sat seven people and came in two trims, the base DLX and the well-equipped LE. Both trims came with rear-wheel drive or AllTrac, Toyota’s four-wheel drive system. The only available engine was a 2.8-liter, 138 horsepower four-cylinder. Fuel economy was about 19/22 mpg.

Despite its unusual shape, the 1992 Previa had a loyal legion of fans, many of whom are still driving their Previas today. Drivers love its car-like handling, reliability, generous amount of legroom and cargo space, and futuristic wrap-around dashboard. Owners do caution that because the engine is under the front seats, if it needs work it will be expensive.
