Honours for Toyota Proace City and Hilux at the Parkers Awards

10 October 2022

The Toyota Proace City has been awarded Best Small Van for the third consecutive year and the Toyota Hilux has won Pickup of the Year at the 2023 Parkers Awards, announced today (10 October). 

Keith Adams, Editor of Parkers, said: “The Proace City’s winning ways continue, taking top spot in this category for the third year in a row. It’s great to drive, with efficient, refined diesel engines and a comfortable cab. And the best models will carry over a ton of payload, which makes it highly useful for such a small van. We’ve singled it out for its amazing aftersales package, which includes up to 10 years of warranty cover, plus impressive dealer support. This is a great small van that’s elevated over its siblings thanks to the ownership experience.”

Turning to the Toyota Hilux he added: “Few vehicles are as at home in hardcore terrain, yet the Hilux is greatly improved on road in recent years thanks to its powerful 2.8-litre diesel engine and suspension that has been refined to improve its ride. There is a GR Sport model coming at the end of 2022 that will add more styling flourishes to the already smart top-trim versions. On top of all this, is the up-to-10-year warranty – both a sign that Toyota has confidence in its products, but also a reassurance that the brand will have your back should things go wrong.”

Toyota has been expanding its range of commercial vehicles in the UK market and now offers one of the widest selections with a choice of diesel, hybrid electric and battery electric powertrains. The Toyota Professional customer promise goes beyond the industry-leading warranty package to include five years’ roadside assistance package and servicing at the customer’s convenience.
