Toyota Voxy Gs 01

The Toyota Noah and Voxy have been released from the Gazoo Racing Gym, and the Japanese market now has the Voxy ZS G’s and the Noah Si G’s to choose from.

Before we move on, the Noah and Voxy are twins with different faces, much like the bigger Alphard and Vellfire – the Voxy is the sportier sister. There’s also a deluxe variant called Toyota Esquire with a fearsome face. Competitors in this mid-sized Japanese MPV segment include the Nissan Serena and Mazda Biante.

Both Noah and Voxy get improved dynamics by Gazoo Racing, Toyota’s racing arm, in addition to sporty changes to the exterior and seven-seat cabin. The sports suspension brings a ride height decline of 15 mm, and there’s a whole family of underbody bracing and aerodynamic parts to boost rigidity for better handling. The steering has been retuned and there’s a G’s muffler as well.

The 3ZR-FAE 2.0 litre-powered CVT MPVs now ride on unique 18-inch G’s ten-spoke wheels made by Enkei, paired with sticky 215/45 Bridgestone Potenza RE050A rubber. Both get the same larger and aggressive front bumper, but the grille is a unique item to match the respective faces – the original Voxy has different headlamps and a strip that bisects it, Vellfire-style. Matching side skirts and rear bumper as well, of course.

Inside the all-black interior, which is the same for both, one will find sporty seats in a combination of suede and synthetic leather, with G’s emblem and silver stitching. The steering and gearknob are trimmed to match. The Optitron meter panel gets red illumination and a G’s logo, ditto the red push start button. Aluminium pedals complete the package.

Maybe after you “get the girl” with the G’s Aqua, this can be a suitable machine to start a family with.
