The Toyota Noah is a 7 or 8 seater van with sliding doors on both sides. There is a 5 seater option available but it’s not very common in the Kenyan market. The 2010 Toyota Noah falls in the second generation that was in production from 2007 to 2013. In the Toyota classification tree, the Toyota Noah is placed in a class above the Toyota Sienta and below the Toyota Alphard. It competes locally with the Toyota Voxy, Nissan Serena, Honda StepWGN, Mitsubishi Delica and Mazda Biante.
The first generation Noah was plagued by technical issues that were attributed to the 1AZ engine. These issues were addressed in the second generation by the replacement of the 1AZ with the 3ZR engine. The Toyota Noah and Voxy were the first Toyotas to receive the Valvematic engines back in 2007.
