Toyota has recently launched an all-new HiAce range that’s packed with huge improvements across functionality, performance, safety and driver comfort.
Size-wise, it offers a capacity of up to 6.2m3 on the LWB model, which is more flexible and user-friendly thanks to the increased internal height and width. Vans in the range come with dual sliding doors designed to make loading and unloading a breeze.
‘We focused on making the new-generation vehicle an even better tool-of-the-trade through an all-new semi-bonneted design, increased performance, a quiet cabin and improved handling,’ said Sean Hanley, Toyota vice president sales and marketing.
At the heart of the redesigned dash is the seven-inch touchscreen system, with digital tools such as, Enhanced Sat Nav1, Enhanced Voice Recognition and Siri® Eyes Free2. Audio, infotainment and cruise controls are all conveniently located on the steering wheel.
In terms of safety, Toyota Safety Sense3 comes with advanced features, such as a Pre-Collision Safety System with Pedestrian Detection and daytime Cyclist Detection, Lane Departure Alert and Road Sign Assist. HiAce is also fitted with anti-lock brakes, while the HiAce LWB Turbo Diesel Manual van features a braked towing capacity of up to 1900kg4. They also have Vehicle Stability Control, Reversing Camera, and front and rear parking sensors.
Personalise your HiAce with Toyota Genuine Accessories5, such as an Interior Ladder Rack, engineered to lock down a ladder in less than two minutes. Or the new Cargo Barrier that allows you to fully separate the cabin from your cargo to help protect drivers and passengers. You can also add a high-strength Rear Technician Step that lets you jump in and out for better productivity. All of this is available in seven models with petrol or diesel engines in manual or auto.
While the HiAce is known for its quality, durability and reliability, independent studies show it has a strong resale value in its segment6. With all that and more, the all-new HiAce van – 15 years in the making – has achieved a 2019 five-star ANCAP safety rating. So with all these additional features, parting with the all-new HiAce may be harder than you think.
