The Toyota HiAce is the workhorse’s workhorse, and it’s had an unprecedented run of success as the trade’s tool of choice for the previous two decades.
There’s nothing fancy about the enormous box on wheels; it’s simple, sturdy, and dependable. The robust four-cylinder petrol engine is situated beneath the passenger compartment to maximize load space, and it can easily transport a pallet of freight. However, vans from Hyundai and Ford have challenged the HiAce’s dominance in recent years, and Chinese competitors like Haval are now attempting to dethrone the HiAce from its lofty perch.
Toyota HiAce Accessories
The Toyota HiAce Crew Van features an 8.0-inch multimedia display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as cruise control, digital radio, digital rear view mirror, front and rear fog lights, satellite navigation, and other features.
Toyota HiAce Seats
The Toyota HiAce Crew Van has a comfortable driving position with plenty of seat adjustment. The HiAce is simply a five-seater, with space for the driver and one front passenger, whereas major competitors can seat six. There are three head restraints, three full lap-sash belts, and ISOFIX on the two outside locations in the backseat for up to three passengers.
Toyota HiAce Fuel Consumption
The Toyota HiAce is offered in a variety of body styles and versions, all of which are powered by diesel or ultra-low-polymer fuel (s). For the most recent year the model was made, the estimated fuel consumption for Commercial /Diesel was 7.5L/100km.
Toyota HiAce Interior
Although the Toyota HiAce Crew Van has opening side doors, it lacks the durable moulded polycarbonate bulkhead featured in key competitors (which insulates their crew zones from cargo bay noise and double as sturdy cargo barriers). For the driver and front passengers, there are various bottle/cup holders and storage bins, but the omission of similar amenities in the sliding rear side-doors is a big oversight that should be corrected.
Toyota HiAce Speed
The Toyota HiAce Crew Van weights more than two tonnes and, despite its small engine displacement, offers plenty of torque for quick acceleration and outstanding throttle response. Expect a 10- to 12-second acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h.
