An unusual car is presented in today’s review. This minivan Toyota bB is the first generation. The car is not available in Russia, therefore it is right-hand drive.

This car has not only an interesting design but also tuning. The appearance is not ordinary and you can’t help but stare. Due to its square shape it looks like a box on the wheels and it adds a certain charisma. The car is easily subject to tuning and a few owners (very few in Russia) take advantage of this. The Toyota bB always stands out from the “crowd”.

In the cabin you can make yourself at home. There is enough space including a high ceiling. The front seats are actually one big sofa. This car can be used as a small mobile home. As for comfort, everything is fine here.

The dashboard like everything else in the car is very peculiar. It is made in a form of a big round dial which shows speed, revolutions and fuel level.

It has 88hp and a 1.3-litre engine. It works together with a four-speed automatic transmission. Another interesting thing – the lever is located to the left above the wheel. I.e. in an American style. This location is actually rather convenient for the driver. You just need to get used to this but it’s not a problem.

The owner of the tested car made some certain improvements. He put wide wheels with low-profile tyres and adjustable air suspension. He didn’t cut springs and put the suspension too low. And it was right – it is much better to make it with pneumatics. The spare parts didn’t have to be ordered as everything was available.

Air suspension really transformed this minivan. It improved not only the appearance but also the chassis. Driving is more comfortable now and lurching is not felt when cornering.

Also the interior was changed. The standard velour upholstery – too boring so it was upholstered with a light brown eco-leather.

The body was fully polished (by an abrasive method) as the car is far from new. The front bumper and headlights were changed into a European version.

This car is completely transformed. And the owner didn’t have to take any drastic measures. It is a great example how you can find an interesting second-hand car and make it even better.
