A bit more bang for that “Xtra” buck

The Toyota Hilux is not only South Africa’s most popular bakkie, but also its most popular vehicle overall. This popularity is thanks to the diverse and extensive Hilux line-up which intends to cater to any customer. The Hilux is offered in four configurations: single cab, extra cab, chassis cab and double cab.

Toyota understands that in order to succeed within this highly competitive segment it has to be extremely responsive to its customers’ needs in order to design a product that suits everyone’s unique requirements. With this philosophy in mind, Toyota South Africa has applied some key changes to the Hilux product line-up, to cater to ever-evolving customer demands.

 

Extra features for Xtra Cab

The most notable change applies to Xtra Cab, where the Legend grade now includes Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) 2.0. This active safety system brings with it a Pre-Collision System (PCS), high-speed-range Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Departure Alert (LDA). TSS operation can be adjusted via dedicated steering switches or via the Multi-Information Display (MID). As part of the spec upgrade, the exterior mirrors now also incorporate a welcome light feature (as with double-cab Legend models)

 

Double Cab Legend grade alignment

As part of a second wave of Legend grade alignment, all double-cab Legend models now boast the same specification level (including 4×2 variants which previously omitted the JBL audio). As such, the Legend grade offers:

  • Power-adjustable driver seat
  • Leather interior
  • Toyota Safety Sense (Pre-crash system, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control)
  • JBL premium nine-speaker audio system
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Smart entry system

Raised body auto models

Raised body auto transmission models (Raider and Legend) are now equipped with an automatic transmission temperature warning, conveniently reporting AT operation when carrying heavy loads or driving on steep terrain.

 

Colour choices

The existing colour palette remains, offering buyers a choice of seven hues on single cabs, while Xtra and double cab models can also be specified in Platinum White. Attitude Black is reserved for double-cab duty. In addition, customers are requested to enquire at their nearest Toyota dealer on the availability of Sand Beige units (available in limited production numbers across all three body shapes).

 

Connectivity

All Hilux models come equipped with Toyota Connect, including a complimentary 15 Gb in car Wi-Fi allocation, vehicle status information, and enhanced user features via the MyToyota app.
