The Estima Hybrid's THS-C (Toyota Hybrid System-CVT) hybrid system has been further evolved, leading to better acceleration and improved fuel efficiency. The minivan now gets 18.6km to the litre in the 10-15 Japanese test cycle, compared to a previous 18.0km/litre, as certified by Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
