2. Exterior And Interior Designs
In general, every generation Toyota Estima always offers a modern look at that time it was made. The first generation Estima was designed with only one sliding door for rear passengers while the second and third generations received sliding doors on both sides, giving easier access to passengers.
Now let’s take a look at the exterior design of the Estima. The vehicle has curved egg-like shape. An arrow-like grille and angular projector-style headlamps are used to decorate the front part of the car. Sliding doors are given to the car for providing easier access in tight car parks. The rear door is fully decorated by the tail lights. A mirror and a tiny spoiler give supports to the driver when reversing.
Get into the car you can easily discover that the rounded design continues inside with a big arch to the dash. It covers the instruments which are located near the centre of the car than in front of the driver. There are controls for the audio system on the steering wheel but actually they don’t work as the standard system has been taken the place of a local frequency CD player. A storage cubby, a cup holder and control for the climate control air-conditioning are placed below the CD player. The Estima has a flat floor, enabling access to the rear of the vehicle.
Additionally, there are many cool features equipped for the Estima. For example, the rear side windows can be raised automatically, the kerbside rear passenger door can be opened and closed from the driver’s seat electrically and there are many separate climate controls for the rear.
The outstanding feature of the vehicle’s seating is the convenience. Both front seats bring a luxury and soft feeling. In fact, they do not give plenty of support to keep you in place when the car is cornering but fold-down armrest enable you to stabilise yourself. The second row is designed to be able to move forward and backward, making less or more legroom to the passengers sitting on the third row. While the second row provides reasonable space for three passengers, the third row is a bit narrower. Although the third row has 3 seatbelts, it seems like this row is convenient for only two people.
On seven-seat version, their third row is two single “captain chair” seats instead of the bench like the eight-seat version.
Another interesting thing is that the third row can be folded to provide more cargo space. When the third row is up, you can carry 4 to 5 medium suitcases. When the third row is folded, the cargo space is quite huge - which means your car can fit 5 people and carry large sports equipment or bikes in the back. Because of the low boot floor, the spare tire is located under the vehicle forward of the second row seats.
