Alleged 2016 Toyota Previa gets sleeker styling, new safety features

The third-generation Toyota Previa has been in the market for the last decade and is beginning to show its age. But images of what appears to be the next-generation minivan were recently posted on the web and shows a more aggressive Previa design.

If the pictures are to be believed, the supposedly fourth-generation Previa now adheres to Toyota's 'Keen Look' design philosophy. Starting with the front fascia, it gets new sharp-looking headlights, a slimmer top grill, wide air intake and corner-mounted daytime running lights (DRLs). Retained however is the minivan's large and rakish windshield design.

Viewed from the side, the minivan gets large multi-spoke alloy wheels and additional chrome trim on the door handles and body trim. Completing the exterior décor is a two-tone paint job.

Cabin details of the purportedly next-generation Toyota Previa were not revealed but it will apparently be available with Toyota's Safety Sense. Package P gives the Previa a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and radar cruise control. Meanwhile, Package C equips the minivan with pre-collision system, lane departure alert and automatic high beam.

In terms of powertrain, the 2.4-liter 2AZ-FE will supposedly be carried over from the previous generation. It produces 170 PS at 6,000 rpm along with 224 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. It is unclear whether the 4-speed automatic gearbox will be carried over as well.
