In early iterations, the Noah could have a two-tone paint job, but became monochromatic after the 2008 model year, with a much more appealing paint scheme.

The 2023 Toyota Voxy is a very roomy car that can comfortably carry up to eight full sized adults and their luggage. The upright seats and elevated provide for a natural sitting position that offers comfortable for long distance driving. At the first row, the driver and passenger seats have an elevation that provides a good view of the road and good legroom. Both seats are electrically or manually adjustable and even tall people have enough legroom. The second and third rows have sufficient shoulder, as well as good legroom
Overall, the interior space is amazing and fantastic. The higher trim Z and V versions are much more luxurious with extra padded seats, and reclining driver seats on the second row. The driver seats swing out to create excellent picnic seats. The one major gripe we have with the Toyota Voxy is the instrument cluster that is in the middle of the dashboard. It’s out of the driver’s line of sight and can be distracting when driving.

Drivability Comparison

Toyota built the Voxy and the Noah on the same platform, so they have identical suspensions and underpinnings. Each offers responsive acceleration made even more surprising when you look for the engine paired to a CVT. In some cases, an MPV is too narrow or too tall, creating an undesirable body roll. This is not an issue with either the Voxy or the Noah. While cornering each responds solidly in turns. Overall, both minivans offer drivers the feeling of being in a spacious sedan more than being in a minivan.

When entering traffic the challenge many drivers face is needing low-end torque. Both the Toyota Voxy and the Noah offer full torque early in the curve for great low-speed acceleration

The 2023 Toyota Noah provides a stable and comfortable driving experience, thanks to its well-tuned chassis and suspension. The Noah and Voxy are based on Toyota’s TNGA platform, which was developed to improve handling and stability while reducing vibration, harshness, and noise

Both Cars have stable and comfortable rides thanks to their torsion beam rear suspension and MacPherson strut front suspension.

Both have an electric steering system which assists and provides good feedback, allowing the vehicle to be maneuvered easily in tight spaces.  The brakes are easy to modulate and have good stopping power and giving the driver a confident and secure feeling.
