Specification upgrade for Toyota Proace

Toyota has introduced specification upgrades across its range of Proace vans and Proace Verso MPVs.

Entry-level Active models gain air conditioning and all models are now equipped with an alarm as standard.

The vehicles also now come with a Smart Cargo system as standard on all versions. It combines a load-through opening in the front bulkhead and a lift/folding function on the front passenger seat, which extends the maximum load length by 1,162mm and increases the van’s overall load volume by half a cubic metre.

The system introduces an arm rest for the driver and passenger, adjustable lumbar support on the driver’s seat and a fold-out backrest section in the centre passenger seat which can serve as a desktop when working on the move.

For Proace Verso, there’s the addition of standard-fit satellite navigation and rear parking sensors across the range.

The new 2021 models will go on sale from mid-September with the first vehicle deliveries to customers from October.

The Proace line-up of medium-duty vans covers a wide range of sizes and payloads. Starting point is the Compact, which is 4,609mm long and has an 11.3-metre turning circle. With the benefit of Smart Cargo, it has 5.1-cubic metre load capacity.

The Medium version is 4,959mm long and has 5.8 cubic metres of load space, while the Long model keeps the same 3,275mm wheelbase as the Medium, but extends overall length to 5,309mm. As a result, it has a 6.1-cubic metre load volume.

Payloads are up to one tonne for versions powered by the 1.5-litre diesel engines, and up to 1.4 tonnes for those using the 2.0-litre power units.

Three equipment grades are available – Active, Icon and Design. All feature left and right-side sliding doors and side-hinged rear double doors that open to 180 degrees. On Medium and Long versions, the side door aperture is large enough for Euro Pallets to be loaded.

The new 2021 models will go on sale from mid-September with the first vehicle deliveries to customers from October.
