It was a minivan that Toyota used to manufacture and sell.
It was the successor of Toyota Townace that had a model change in 1996, and it was the predecessor of Noah.
The skylight roof in the previous generation model was abolished.
It was discontinued in 2001 due to the release of Noah.
The name was made from the English word "Town" that means "Town" and "City," and "Ace" that means "Leader" and "The best." The name Noah is a name in English that has a kind nuance, but it does not have a special meaning.
