Toyota has launched an all-new HiAce range of vans that delivers vast improvements in driver comfort, performance, safety and functionality with the same expansive carrying capacity as its predecessor.
As the first new HiAce in 15 years, it has been completely redesigned with a new semi-bonneted configuration to more than meet the needs of commercial, private, corporate and fleet buyers.
Sitting on a substantially longer and wider all-new platform, the new HiAce combines efficient new turbodiesel and V6 petrol engines that deliver more power, refinement and driveability, the latest suite of Toyota Safety Sense features and a redesigned cabin with improved ergonomics for greater driver comfort and convenience.
Toyota Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said every aspect of the all-new HiAce has been designed to appeal to owners who often spend long days behind the wheel.
“We focused on making the new-generation vehicle an even better tool of trade through an all-new semi-bonneted design, increased performance, a quiet cabin, smooth ride and improved handling and agility,” Mr Hanley said.
“Its impressive carrying capacity is even more flexible and user-friendly with increased internal width, and increased height on LWB versions, and dual sliding side doors on van models which, for the SLWB variants, can take a standard Australian pallet.
“We are also providing HiAce customers with the same high level of safety as found in our passenger cars and SUVs with a full suite of advanced Toyota Safety Sense technologies,” Mr Hanley said.
The new HiAce is offered in a choice of nine variants to cater to a diverse variety of users.
To help deliver low whole-of-life costs, the new HiAce is covered by the Toyota Service Advantage10 that offers capped price servicing for three years or 60,000km, whichever comes first, up to a maximum of six services.
Service intervals for all HiAce and Commuter models are six months/10,000km and for turbodiesel versions, the cost is capped at $240 per service or just $180 for petrol variants.
Like all new Toyota vehicles, the new HiAce will also be covered by the five-year Toyota Warranty Advantage11.
