Toyota Noah Review

The Toyota Noah is Toyota’s answer to the ever-green minivan segment. It is an MPV with rear doors that slide, and it can seat up to 8 people. It is currently in the 3rd generation that was introduced in 2014, and facelifted in 2017. Let’s take a look at what it is all about.

Toyota Noah Specs

Powertrain and Features

You can have the Noah with one of two engines; a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with a 5JM Motor Hybrid system or the fully petrol-powered 2.0-liter Valvematic four-cylinder producing. The hybrid engine produces 134hp and 142Nm of torque. The 2-liter engine produces about 150hp and 193lb-ft of Torque. The 7-speed transmissions attached are the eCVT and CVT-i respectively.

The Noah keeps its passengers entertained, with features including, but not limited to a 10-inch infotainment system, satellite navigation, an 8-speaker sound system, wireless phone charging, and USB/AUX inputs. The seats are one-touch so they’re easy to fold, and you get multi-zone climate control.

There’s also an ECO mode to lessen fuel consumption while also allowing you to lessen your carbon footprint. On the Toyota Noah hybrid, you can switch between full EV mode, the aforementioned ECO mode, and the POWER mode. The EV mode leads to the car relying completely on the batteries, and spontaneously triggering the engine whenever a boost is required.

Some safety quirks are a rear parking camera, SRS airbags, lane assist, front collision warning, and high beam assist, so the Toyota Noah doesn’t let you down there.

Ride and Comfort

The Toyota Noah comes with heated seats to maintain warmness in the winter and a dual-moonroof for some fresh sunlight. Toyota have designed the interior to be spacious, so there’s no such thing as getting cramped in the Noah. Moving around in the cabin is not a struggle as the Noah has easy stow seats in the third row.

The Noah allows a comfortable nap time on your journey due to its second-row captain seat which cannot be found on any of its rivals. You also get a long wheelbase of 4,695–4,795 mm and seats that have been designed to pull more legroom in the second and third-row.


Being realistic, the Toyota Noah is not, and wasn’t designed to be a speedster, but it has been fitted with enough power and torque to get the job done. The Noah with its 2.0-liter engine can accelerate from 0 to 100kph in about 10 seconds, going up to the top speed of 175kph. These figures are some of the bests in the 8-seater MPV range.

Fuel Economy

The Toyota Noah has a fuel tank of 55 liters. It has been known to do 13.4-16.2kmpl on FWD, and 12.6kmpl on its 4WD configuration. A good estimate are values of 4.2l/100km and 6.2l/100km respectively. The hybrid version takes these values up a notch, doing around 23.8kmpl.
