The Toyota PROACE is a versatile and extremely capable van that is ideal for an array of businesses and organisations. The smart-looking commercial vehicle offers commendable fuel-efficiency and emission levels and comes with a wide range of safety equipment as standard.
The PROACE is available in three lengths (Compact, Medium and Long) and four body styles (Panel Van, Crew Cab, Combi and Platform Cab). Panel Van models come in Base and Comfort trim levels. This compact vehicle ensures flexible loading options thanks to twin sliding side doors and 180-degree-opening twin rear doors. Time-saving fixtures include electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors. The PROACE comes in a dapper Vivid White paint finish as standard. A wide range of eye-catching optional colours are available too, such as Storm Black, Marina Blue and Blazing Red.
Each model features a three-person forward compartment as standard, while Comfort grades provide the opportunity to convey up to six people. Combi variants, meanwhile, have the capacity to transport as many as nine passengers. Each PROACE iteration features a height-adjustable driver’s position and electric front windows among its range of standard features. Comfort trims add driver lumbar support, air conditioning and a protective grille and window in addition to the vehicle’s full steel bulkhead.
Depending on the configuration you choose, load capacity ranges from 5,100 litres to 6,600 litres, while payload varies between 1,000kg and 1,400kg.
A 1.6-litre diesel engine comes with a choice of 94bhp or 113bhp outputs, while a 2.0-litre unit produces 118bhp. The former delivers up to 51.4mpg and a 144g/km CO2 emission figure, while the 113bhp option returns as much as 54.3mpg and emissions as low as 137g/km. Torque outputs range from 210Nm (93bhp engine) and 340Nm (118bhp engine).
Technology and safety
A four-speaker sound system is provided as standard and features DAB radio and an AM/FM tuner. Bluetooth® connectivity is also included, enabling music streaming and hands-free telephoning. USB and AUX connectors feature too, allowing you to plug-and-play your compatible media devices.
A number of driver aids are featured as standard, such as Vehicle stability Control, Hill-start Assist and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. The latter constantly analyses the air pressure of each tyre and alerts the driver if there is any significant fluctuation. Combi models also feature ISOFIX child-seat anchor points and additional side front airbags.
