(NCP30) 04.2003 - 11.2005
1 generation, restyling
Restyling in 2003 introduced a number of changes to the appearance of the Toyota bB. In the front, the optics were updated, the position of the license plate changed in the back - from the bumper, he moved to the trunk door. The appearance of the model was refreshed by seven new body shades, including particularly spectacular metallic colors in orange and dark gray-olive color, as well as dark blue and black with a pearly sheen. Improved interior, added new security options. Toyota bB is still equipped with 1.3 or 1.5 liter gasoline engines. In the modification with the second all-wheel drive version is possible. All cars received a certificate of compliance with the 50 percent level of reduction of toxic emissions according to the 2005 standard.
 In the interior of the restyled version of the first generation Toyota bB, the main thing remains unchanged - the bold design of the instrument cluster, which is a circle located in the center, in which the speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge are enclosed. The interior has been updated in detail, including the center console, new materials and more. The basic equipment includes electric mirrors and central locking with remote control, power windows. The rear seat has a slide for longitudinal adjustment (150 mm), a separate backrest in a proportion of 60:40 and a double folding structure (2WD). New special versions are proposed, such as the “ZX version” 2WD with the optional VSC and TRC systems, the “HID Selection” with standard gas discharge headlights. In 2004, a special version of the “ZX version Kirameki neo edition” was released with chrome accents in the design, special alloy wheels, and exclusive leather upholstery. The new limited edition “maziora II” is distinguished by the Agat Spectra Shine “chameleon” color (from dark red to khaki). Toward the end of the first-generation bB, the HID Selection II trimmer series is offered.

 The same units were installed on Toyota bB from 2003-2005 as before restyling, with a little modernization and adjusted power indicators. The 2NZ-FE 1.3-liter petrol engine delivers a maximum of 87 hp. and placed exclusively on front-wheel drive models. His own "brother" 1NZ-FE has a volume of 1.5 liters and produces a maximum of 109 "horses" in front-wheel drive and 105 hp. in the presence of 4WD. Engines actually differ only in displacement and piston stroke, while due to the presence of an aluminum cylinder block and other design features, both motors do not belong to the category of “long-livers” to reduce overall dimensions. Equipped with an automatic 4-band gearbox. On one liter of gasoline, depending on the modification, Toyota bB can travel from 14.6 to 16.4 km, which corresponds to 6.1-6.85 l / 100 km.

 Toyota bB has an independent front suspension (McPherson strut suspension strut). Rear - semi-dependent torsion bar for front-wheel drive cars or dependent (axle on trailing arms) for all-wheel drive. Front ventilated disc brakes, rear drum brakes. Body dimensions: length 3845, width 1690, height 1645 mm. Wheelbase 2.5 m. Minimum turning radius 5.5 m. Interior dimensions: 1955 x 1375 x 1355 mm (L x W x H). Trunk volume is 600 liters, the maximum volume is 1230 liters.

 The list of Toyota bB 2003-2005 safety systems includes two airbags (driver and front passenger), three-point belts (with pretensioners and stops on the front seats), child seat mounts, side stiffeners, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and an auxiliary system braking. Separate configurations for a surcharge offered the installation of stability and traction control systems.

 Toyota bB has a fairly reliable, albeit stiffer suspension. Practicality, spaciousness, a transformable interior are the main advantages. Good car and in terms of safety. Design is for everybody. Like Vitz, this model is distinguished by low-cost maintenance, the availability of spare parts. As for engines, it will be preferable to 1NZ-FE with an increased power reserve, and only this option makes it possible to purchase an all-wheel drive car. Engines are sensitive to the slightest overheating, often increased oil consumption. It is worth considering the low clearance, decent overhangs.
