If you require a robust and flexible commercial vehicle, the Toyota Hilux could be just what you are looking for. This handsome and hard-working pick-up truck is available in a number of body styles and Active, Icon, Invincible and Invincible X trim levels.
Choose the kind of Hilux that best suits your needs from one of three configurations: Single Cab, Extra Cab or Double Cab. All models come with labour-saving features such as heated and power-adjustable door mirrors (which are also power-retractable with Icon grades and higher). Courtesy-delay headlights are included as standard too, lighting the way to the door of your home or workplace. Icon trims and above additionally feature minimum-size 17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass and front fog lamps.
Single Cab models come in two-seat form, while Extra Cab variants feature two rows of seats that can easily convey four travellers. Double Cab iterations, meanwhile, are ideal for families, with four doors that provide access to a roomy five-person interior.
Whichever cab option you select, it will feature a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel, which also comprises multimedia and telephone controls. Air conditioning and front and rear power-operated windows are also included as standard, ensuring that everyone on board enjoys an agreeable temperature. Stowage provision includes a lockable glovebox, as well as a refrigerated cool box that is particularly welcome during warm summer weeks.
Icon grades and higher add a number of extra-special finishes to the interior. These include a steering wheel, handbrake and gearshift lever that are all leather-trimmed, and silver dashboard and steering wheel inserts.
Thanks to comfortable suspension and precise steering, the Hilux is a joy to drive. The vehicle is powered by a 2.4-litre 148bhp diesel engine, which is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox (automatic transmission is available too). This produces 400Nm of torque, returns as much as 40.4mpg, carries up to 1,120kg (Double Cab variants) and is capable of towing as much as 3,200kg.
Technology and safety
All models come with an MP3-compatible CD player and an FM/AM radio. You can also stream your music thanks to the inclusion of Bluetooth®, while compatible media devices can be connected with the vehicle’s USB and AUX inputs. Icon trims and upwards also include a Touch 2 infotainment system and DAB digital radio.
A wide range of driver aids include Hill-start Assist Control, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Trailer Sway Control (TSC). VSC keeps the Hilux steady and minimises skidding by autonomously applying individual brake pressure when necessary. TSC deals with variables such as pot-holed road surfaces and high winds by automatically keeping an attached trailer in line with the vehicle.
