MPVs are good for families as they carry 7 people easily and are roomy people-focused vehicles versus SUVs. Seating 7 via 3 rows, they suit families as the prime family car, or drivers transporting large groups. Functional highlights include spacious interiors and sliding doors for easy cabin entry. Key factors in MPV selection involve size/seating configuration, cargo/passenger space, comfort & convenience features, safety equipment, and fuel efficiency.
1. Car Size and Dimensions
MPV selection starts with vehicle size. The compact Toyota Sienta is ideal for those seeking a smaller MPV with good maneuverability, while larger options like the Toyota Noah, Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire provide more luxury features and space. Get a first hand experience with those models in a dealership, car showroom or car show, you may also book a test drive in advance to ensure you have the complete experience of the models.
Sliding doors of Toyota Sienta, Toyota Noah, Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire aid tight parking access of rear seat passengers. Some variants use split second row "captain seats" with a center aisle, allowing passengers to directly access the third row without needing to alter the second row seats. This configuration is found in Toyota Sienta, Toyota Noah, Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire, which enhances comfort and versatility.
3. Interior Storage space
The capacity of interior storage spaces influences your selection. Toyota Sienta has multiple surprisingly generous storage compartments built into the interior thanks to its clever design. The third row seats of Toyota Sienta is ideal for those seeking a smaller MPV with good maneuverability, while larger options like the Toyota Noah, Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire can be folded down to offer more storage space if needed.
4. Comfort and convenience features
MPVs often have features that enhance comfort for passengers. Larger MPVs like the Toyota Noah, and luxury models Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire offer individual rear seats and climate control. While Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire include rear tables, device charging USB ports, and all Toyota MPV come with the rear sun shade to block out the glare and heat of the sun.
5. Safety Features
Safety features is also a key consideration for MPV and Toyota Safety Sense™3.0 provides the perfect protection for your family and passengers. MPVs have slightly limited rear visibility compared to other cars, making rear cameras a valuable feature. Rear view/Reverse cameras is also the standard feature on Toyota Sienta, Toyota Noah, Toyota Alphard and Toyota Vellfire, which assist with parking and reversing manoeuvres where natural sightlines are restricted.
There is limited choice for 7-seater electric cars in Hong Kong, however hybrid electric (HEV) powertrains, which offer smart energy regeneration are now available to boost the fuel efficiency of the Toyota MPVs.
