Toyota Previa Overview
The Toyota Previa entered the market in 1991, when minivan sales were just starting to take off. It was meant to compete with popular American offerings, like the Dodge Caravan. The Previa is best-known for its unusual styling, and is instantly recognizable.
The Toyota Previa had an unusual layout, with the mid-mounted engine located under the front seats and the alternator and cooling system located under the hood. The result was a well-balanced van, but it meant that the Previa could not accept a larger engine. It also meant that repairs were very expensive.
The Previa was available in a large amount of trims--in some years up to six. It was also the first van to pass all U.S. safety standards.
The Previa had a loyal following, but most unadventurous minivan shoppers passed the egg-shaped Previa over in favor of more conventional vans. It was discontinued in 1997 to make way for the Sienna, which has more mass market appeal.
