Mid-engined...rear-wheel drive...

Recommended Posts

Its an egg...er, Previa. Not mid-engined...nor RWD...?


I knew it was mid-engined for a while (it's under the floor of the van) but I didn't know it was RWD until recently.

Here's a review of a 1995 Previa (where it states it's unusual powertrain layout).

Its sad that the TRANSMISION"S FELL OUT OF THEM!! I liked their looks back then and their RWD. It was powered by an I4 mounted on its side with an opt. supercharger if I remember correctly.

Actually this thing's pretty good (a rare comment from me about a Toyota). My sister's friend tend to have replaced her family's Mercedes S320 with this thing, since it was so much more practical and good on gas. It's pretty roomy as well, compared to many vans nowadays.

the engine is further back then the driver's butt... of course it was mid engined. I know some were AWD but I thought some were also RWD.
