2002 Toyota Voltz. Avi
The Toyota Voltz is a high-class family car in a 5-door station wagon that was manufactured by NUMMI, a joint venture of Toyota and General Motors, from 2002 to 2004. For the first time the wagon was introduced in August 2002. The plant where the Toyota Voltz was assembled is located in California, USA. It is worth noting that in the American markets, this model was called the Pontiac Vibe. The main concept of the exterior design of this model is a harmonious combination of elements of a sports wagon, minivan and SUV. The Toyota Voltz is built on the same platform as the Toyota Corolla. The wheelbase of the station wagon is 2,600 mm, length - 4,365 mm, width - 1,775 mm, and height 1,660 mm. The minimum clearance of 170-180 mm is higher than that of conventional passenger cars, which is typical for models like the Toyota RAV-4, Nissan X-Trail and Honda CR-V, but the wheels here are used road type.
For car Toyota Voltz offered two engine options. Powertrain 1ZZ-FE with a volume of 1.87 liters and 135 hp. with front-wheel drive configuration and 125 hp with all-wheel drive. This engine is often used in Toyota cars. The second version of the engine to be installed is a 1.8-liter 2ZZ-GE, equipped with a variable valve timing system of VVTL-i type, 190 hp. The same power unit was used in such models as the Celica and Will VS. As for the transmission, in the standard Toyota Voltz equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission. There was also a special version, which was called "Z". It was equipped with a 190-horsepower 2ZZ-GE engine and was offered a choice, in addition to the standard 4-speed “automatic”, 6-speed manual transmission. Also this version was "shod" in 17-inch tires of high coupling Firestone Firehawk SZ50. The braking system of the car included front ventilated disc and rear drum brakes. The front suspension consisted of a suspension strut with a coil spring, and the rear suspension - a torsion bar with a coil spring. The top-end package included options such as anti-roll bars for MacPherson-type front suspension, disc brakes on all wheels, anti-lock braking system ABS and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), as well as a navigation system.
In the interior design of the car Toyota Voltz there is a sporty style. In the trim and dashboard designers have been used chrome elements. The most expensive equipment wheel and gear knob are made of leather. The gearshift lever, regardless of whether it is manual or automatic, is located almost on the dashboard, which made it possible to gain additional legroom. The armrest between the front seats has quite a lot of space due to the fact that the gear knob was placed on the dashboard. Near the gearshift knob there was a 115-volt power supply. There were also traditional 12-volt car exits.
The production of the Toyota Voltz was completed in April 2004.
