Toyota has improved the load versatility, safety and comfort of its successful Hiace Powervan commercial vehicle range for the 2000 model year to further its already strong appeal.

The company’s range of standard and long wheelbase Hiace vans have expanded with the addition of five new models, which feature twin swing out rear doors to aid load versatility. The new doors can be opened to 90 or 180 degrees with the latter setting particularly suited to loading by forklift truck. Previously, the Hiace Powervan has been available only with a single ‘clam shell’ tailgate rear door hinged at the roofline. This design will continue to be available on all GS and GX standard and long wheelbase models in the range at price parity with the new swing out rear door models.

WIDER CHOICE OF MODELS

The new 2000 model year range of Hiace Powervan models has expanded to include five new models with the swing out rear doors, three specification levels – S, GS and GX – and two engine choices – 2.4-litre 74bhp normally aspirated diesel and 2.7-litre 141bhp petrol. Standard and long wheelbase formats are available and all Powervans have a nearside sliding side door for extra loading versatility. The new range comprises

MORE COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND SAFETY FOR ALL MODELS

All Powervan models are treated to extra equipment aimed to make them safer and more comfortable. All GX models are now fitted with anti-lock brakes and a driver’s airbag as standard while GS models now have a driver’s airbag as standard.

In addition, all swing out rear door Hiace models are now fitted with redesigned front seats. For improved comfort, the seat cushion bases have been extended by 20mm and the headrest depth by 30mm. The front and rear portions of the driver’s seat cushion can now also be raised or lowered individually. S and GS models are fitted with a two seater passenger side bench seat alongside the driver’s seat and GX models have an individual passenger seat with an integrated arm rest.

Inside, all models are also now fitted with a ceiling mounted storage tray for extra convenience. All Powervans have an engine immobiliser and are also now linked to the International Security Register making them traceable in the event of theft. A full metal bulkhead with glass panel is mounted behind the driver’s cab on all GS specification swing out rear door models. Long wheelbase models are now able to carry a heavier maximum payload of 1340kg (increased from 1195kg) thanks to re-engineering of the suspension.

The new Toyota Hiace Powervan range comes with a full manufacturer three year/60,000 mile warranty as standard and is available at Toyota dealers nationwide.

With over 14,000 sales since launch in 1996, The Toyota Hiace Powervan has quite literally been an outstanding commercial success owing to its unrivalled combination of practicality, low cost of ownership, payload, reliability and style. The addition of these new models is expected to continue the strong sales momentum Powervan is currently enjoying and these new swing out rear door models will add incremental sales to Toyota’s annual van sales.
