The Opa was the result of the V50 series Vista Ardeo wagon modified into a 5-door hatchback. The transmission shifter was relocated from the floor between the front seats to a location on the lower portion of the dashboard, allowing passengers to walk to the rear area from either front seat.
It was introduced at the October 1999 Tokyo Motor Show as a prototype car, and was put into production in December 1999, initially with the 1.8 L 1ZZ-FE engine. Later in August 2000, the Opa was offered to customers with the 2.0L 1AZ-FSE and a CVT transmission. January 2001 saw GPS navigation offered as an option. The Opa was exclusive to Toyopet Store locations as a larger companion to the Toyota Caldina station wagon, and competed with the Mitsubishi RVR, Nissan R'nessa and the Honda Avancier.
Sales were not what Toyota had hoped and production ended in December 2005.
