Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 26 - 39 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Holding its value better than rivals – Previa’s quality is highly regarded. Reasonable fuel economy for its size. Sensibly-spaced service intervals. Toyota servicing is usually good value.

Previa is quite a polluting model. With an average of 256 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are quite high for a people carrier. However, it’s worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

The range is not very frugal, averaging 32 mpg.

We’ve heard of no reliability issues, since it went on sale in 2000. The only foreseeable problems are neglectful owners who don’t keep to the service schedule, and interior damage from heavy-handed families.
