TOYOTA ISIS MPV SPECIFICATION
The Toyota Isis is a seven-seat large MPV manufactured by Kanto Auto Works under contract for Japanese automaker Toyota. It is sold only in Japan and was launched in September 2004. It features sliding doors and is available with either front or four-wheel drive and straight-4 1.8 and 2.0-litre gasoline engines.
The Isis uses a unique approach to the sliding doors in that the front passenger door and the rear passenger sliding door interlock together when closed, instead of having a door jamb that the doors attach to. Toyota calls this on the Japanese Wikipedia article “Panoramic Door”. This door system is used only on the passenger side. The doors on the drivers side attach with a conventional door jamb. The front passenger seat can be folded flat upon itself and then tilted forward to further provide passenger access. The doors also interlock into the top and bottom door openings so that both doors can be opened independently of each other.

NISSAN PRESAGE SPECIFICATION
The Nissan Presage is a large MPV produced by Japanese automaker Nissan since 1998. The Presage is only officially sold by Nissan in Hong Kong, Singapore, Brunei and Japan.
The name “Presage” is French for “anticipation”
The second generation Presage debuted in 2003 with a transformable seven or eight seat configuration. Rear side doors were changed from swinging to sliding. The new Presage is built on the L-class platform, which is also used for the Teana mid-size car.
Engines are also taken from the Teana, a 2.5-litre four-cylinder and a 3.5-litre V6 gasoline engine. These engines are mated with a four-speed automatic transmission or a sequential CVT.
The main advantage of the second generation of this Japanese car is its comfortable and transformable interior. For easier reversing, there is a rear view camera. As before, a sporty trim level dubbed Highway Star is available.
