Used Toyota Picnic (1997 - 2001) Review

Review by Parkers on
3
Toyota has commanded the heavyweight end of the people carrier market with the Previa since the early Nineties, but the Picnic midi-MPV only arrived in 1997. It's a competent car whose six- or seven-seater layouts provide a practical solution for the family that's too big for a medium estate car or a Megane Scenic.

Toyota has commanded the heavyweight end of the people carrier market with the Previa since the early Nineties, but the Picnic midi-MPV only arrived in 1997. It's a competent car whose six- or seven-seater layouts provide a practical solution for the family that's too big for a medium estate car or a Megane Scenic. It was discontinued in 2001, and now looks dated against current models.
