Toyota Noah Review
The Toyota Noah is an eight-seater MPV with two rear sliding doors built by Toyota 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 two twin versions, named Toyota Voxy and Toyota Esquire.
As the successor of Townace Noah and Liteace Noah, the Toyota Noah changed driving system to front drive and added slide doors on both sides of the rear seats. Its torque output was improved dramatically, and the fuel consumption is 14km per liter. Toyota Noah is a highly recommended model for customers looking for a luxurious midsize van with a minimum budget.
First launched in 2001, it is positioned below the Estima and Alphard, and above the Sienta. Its main competitors are the Honda StepWGN, Mazda Biante and the Nissan Serena. The Noah started arriving in Uganda in the early 2009 and has continued to be a popular brand since then. The reasons for its popularity in Uganda are listed below:
The Noah’s 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. With a smaller engine and considerably fast speeds, the Noah provides an opportunity for Ugandans who want to save on fuel without compromising on speed.

The second generation Noah was released in 2007. This version has a 2.0 L gasoline direct injection engine, CVT and standard front wheel drive or available four wheel drive. The second generation Noah was discontinued in Japan when the third generation Noah was released in January 2014. However, the second generation Noah, which was released in 2010, is still in production in Indonesia as the Toyota NAV1 .
The Toyota Noah is a medium sized van that can easily carry the traditional Uganda extended family of over 8 people. The convenience of a van that can carry a family is a driving factor why the Totoya Noah continues to be a popular choice for Ugandan car buyers.

High ground clearance
Toyota Noah has a high ground clearance which provides comfortable rides on Uganda’s rough and bumpy roads that are sometimes not tarmacked. This high ground clearance combined with a great engine and narrow body make the Noah a stand out buy for car lovers.
