The fifth-generation Vista was released in July 1998, becoming independent of the Camry that had been its sister car from the first to the fourth generation. The fifth-generation model renewed its platform, and the Vista Ardeo station wagon was newly added.

The Vista Ardeo was 1,515 mm tall and had a wheelbase of 2,700 mm, and its windshield was located further in front, which resulted in a spacious cabin. The transmission was a 4-speed automatic with a column shifter. In July 1999, a 6-passenger version was added to the line with the front seats accommodating three people. The engine displacement was either 1.8 or 2 liters, and either a front-engine, front-wheel-drive or a 4-wheel-drive layout was available.

With the introduction of the Avensis in October 2003, production of the Vista sedan and the Vista Ardeo was discontinued.

The meaning of "Vista" is the same as in English. "Ardeo" means "I glow" or "I desire ardently" in Latin.
