WIDE CHOICE OF MODELS

EXCELLENT COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND SAFETY FOR ALL MODELS

High equipment specification on all Hiace vans offers excellent safety and comfort. All GX models are fitted with anti-lock brakes, third brake light, premium audio, full wheel caps, tachometer, central door locking and a driver’s airbag as standard while GS models have a driver’s airbag and central door locking as standard.

All swing out rear door models offer excellent driver comfort with front and rear portions of the driver’s seat cushion that can 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 fitted with a ceiling mounted storage tray for extra convenience. All Hiace vans have an engine immobiliser and are 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.

New Conversions for hiace van

Specialist vehicles tailored to meet specific customer needs are an important focus of the Hiace range. Toyota offers the Hiace in a range of mobility, taxi, minibus, Hi-Top and refridgerated conversions. Toyota also offers motorhomes, based on the Hiace model, through a joint venture with two established conversion companies, Devon and Elddis.

Two new conversions for 2001 add further versatility to the Hiace range. The Hiace Crew Cab seats up to six people whilst maintaining a spacious 1220mm load space in the standard wheelbase and 1730mm in the long wheelbase. All models are fitted with two side windows and offer a choice of two trim levels. Basic prices start from £13,670 for the standard wheelbase GS.

Another addition to the range is the 14/15 seater minibus. Both versions are based on the long wheelbase Hiace van; the 15 seater on the GS derivative and the 14 seater on the GX derivative. These minibuses are particularly suited to schools and join the nine and 12 seater minibuses as part of Toyota’s specialist vehicle range.

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

Since its launch in 1996, the Toyota Hiace van has quite literally been an outstanding commercial success owing to its unrivalled combination of practicality, low cost of ownership, payload, reliability and style. The strong sales momentum Hiace van is currently enjoying is expected to continue with the addition of these two new specialist vehicles. The Hiace Crew Cab and 14/15 seater minibus alongside the popular swing out rear door models will add incremental sales to Toyota’s van sales.
