The Toyota Gaia is an Japanese market MPV that competes with the Nissan Prairie and the Honda Shuttle. It was replaced by the Toyota Isis. The Gaia shares a platform with the Toyota Ipsum (sister car) and Toyota Corona Premio (platform sharing). It was manufactured from May 1998 until September 2004 for the Japanese market.

April 2001 saw DVD based navigation added as an option, and the 3S-FE engine was upgraded to the 1AZ-FSE with AWD. The 1AZ-FSE features Toyota's D-4 direct injection system.

The vehicle was named for Gaia (pronounced /ˈɡeɪ.ə/ or /ˈɡaɪ.ə/; "land" or "Earth", from the Ancient Greek Γαîα; also Gæa or Gea (Modern Greek Γῆ)[1] is the primal Greek goddess personifying the Earth.

Gaia is a primordial and chthonic deity in the Ancient Greek pantheon and considered a Mother Goddess or Great Goddess.

Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra.


  1. The spelling Gea is not normally used in modern English.
