Hilux and Proace key for Toyota van growth

Toyota had two brand new models to show off to fleet operators at Commercial Fleet Van and Truck.

The newly launched Proace van made its first public debut at the show alongside the Hilux pickup.

The brand is taking its commercial division a lot more seriously this year, an internal reshuffle and the launch of two key models has been combined with significant investment in the dealer network to support the commercial customer.

Commercial Fleet drove the new Proace only weeks ago at its international launch and found the new vehicle to offer class leading economy figures thanks to its frugal 1.6- and 2.0-litre diesel engines. Its cost from £18,660 (excluding VAT) and is on sale now.

To experience the full potential of the Hilux, a professional driver was available to demonstrate the off-road capabilities of the new Hilux. Historically it’s the brands most successful commercial vehicle and has been recently updated in order to compete with the ever expanding number of pick-ups on the market.

Powering the Hilux is a 2.4-litre diesel engine which can return 41.5mpg, prices start at £19,177.

To cement Toyota’s commitment to reliability, both vehicles come with a five year or 100,000 mile warranty.
