UMW Toyota has revised the price of the Toyota Previa 2.4 GL in Malaysia. The estimated price of RM270k that was revealed at KLIMS13 has now been reduced to RM258k OTR including insurance, as indicated in a price list released on January 8, 2014.

The previously listed 2-DIN CD/MP3 head unit with six speakers has also been replaced by a 2-DIN DVD player with a seven-inch touch-screen with navigation and reverse camera.

Other than that, the specs and equipment look the same as what was released previously. Its 2.4 litre 2AZ-FE four-cylinder motor from the previous-gen Camry produces 170 PS and 224 Nm of torque, sending it to the front wheels via a four-speed Super ECT automatic gearbox. Wheels are 215/55 R17 alloys.

Creature comforts include dual power sliding doors, keyless entry and start, combination leather seats in a 2-2-3 layout (captain second row seating), and self-levelling HID headlamps with adaptive front lighting (directional headlamps). There are only two airbags.

The Previa is essentially the same model as the Japanese market Toyota Estima MPVs that the grey importers are bringing in in droves. While you can only get insurance warranty with a grey import Estima at most, UMW Toyota offers a three-year or 100,000 km manufacturer warranty. However, it looks like you’ll be trading a massive amount of specs for the privilege of driving it new with warranty.
