The Toyota RegiusAce is a minivan sold primarily in the Japanese market, and is related to the Hiace.
The first Regius Ace was introduced August 1999 with different versions called the Regius Hiace and Regius Touring Hiace sold at Toyopet and Vista dealerships. The Regius Ace uses a cab over setup, meaning that front seat passengers sit on top of the front axle and the 1TR-FE engine is located underneath the floor and between the front passengers.
When the Vista sales network was replaced by the Netz sales network, the Regius Ace was sold exclusively at the Netz Store. The first generation H100 series was manufactured between 1999-2004.
The second generation series H200 was completely restyled and is currently in production. Transmission choices are a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic, with the gearshift lever integrated into the instrument panel so as to allow front seat passengers access to the rear of the vehicle from the inside. A moderate restyle was completed November 2005.
