Trademark of a professional

Toyota HiAce is the legendary workhorse that’s been driving Australia’s businesses for almost half a century.

There’s a reason the Toyota HiAce continues to rate as Australia’s most popular van. It gets the job done, just like the drivers it’s designed for. It’s how the name HiAce came about in the first place. Originating in Japan, ‘Hi’ came from the Japanese word for high performance, and ‘Ace’ is used to signify a hard worker.

Now, in its 48th year in our country, Toyota HiAce shows no signs of stopping. It’s part of Australian business with well over 300,000 HiAces powering workers and tradies from job to job in that time. In just the last year 7,470* businesses added a new Toyota HiAce to their fleet – that’s nearly one third more than its nearest competitor.

So what’s all the fuss about? Toyota HiAce comes in a choice of twin cam VVT-I equipped 2.7L petrol engine or 3.0L turbocharged intercooled common rail diesel engine, with the option of manual and automatic.

Safety is paramount with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Brake Assist (BA), and SRS airbags for both driver and offsider, so your crew’s wellbeing on the road is one less thing to worry about. With added Vehicle Stability Control to help control oversteer and Hill-start Assist control to help avoid rollback on steep inclines, you know you have all the help you need.

Toyota HiAce has a handy reversing camera that’s got your back whether you choose the Long Wheel Base with 6.0 cubic metres of cargo space or the Super Long Wheel Base with 9.8-cubic metres. As an optional extra, you can get a cargo barrier designed specifically for HiAce to make sure all your goods stay in the rear of the van.

With its professional road presence and ample interior space, it’s the van that never clocks off. So when you clear out the tools, pipes or boxes, you’ve got plenty of room for the pets, surfboards and camping gear.

When you’re ready for the next job, the 6.1-inch touchscreen Satellite Navigation will show you the way. Need to take the hard work out of a long haul? Switch to Cruise Control, turn on the MP3 compatible CD player with AM/FM radio, and it’ll have you singing along to all your favourite songs. And that’s without distractions, thanks to the Bluetooth hands-free system and steering wheel mounted audio controls.

If you need a van that matches your work ethic, your workmanship and your business goals, HiAce is the partner you can rely on. It’s not afraid to get its wheels dirty. It’s a tougher-than-leather workhorse that handles the heavy loads but it also protects delicate cargo. That’s why it’s widely regarded as a trademark of the professional.
