Toyota announces key upgrades for HiAce van
The HiAce has received some new upgrades

 

Toyota Australia has announced updates for its HiAce van, which it says bring added technology and comfort and convenience features while offering a streamlined choice for customers.

Headlining the model updates, available from September and starting from a price increase of $990, is the addition of new safety and security technology with the fitment of Toyota Connected Services to all models.

Inside the upgraded HiAce a large centre console storage box has been added that has a removable in-box tray, an A4-sized binder rack and a moveable partition at the rear of the box that can be used as a cupholder.

The addition of Toyota Connected Services sees the system able to automatically generate an emergency call to Toyota's 24/7 Emergency Call Centre and relay the location of the vehicle in the event of a collision that requires intervention, or if an airbag deploys.

Occupants can also manually trigger an emergency call to the call centre via an SOS button, allowing them to determine the vehicle's location and coordinate with emergency services.

If the vehicle is reported stolen, Toyota Connected Services can assist authorities to help track the vehicle's location via the stolen vehicle tracking (SVT) service.

Other additions include front all-weather floor mats and an additional low-profile roof-mounted antenna.

All versions of the HiAce are now powered by Toyota's 2.8-litre turbodiesel four-cylinder engine, mated to an automatic transmission, with a six-speed manual gearbox also offered on the HiAce LWB van.

The turbodiesel engine develops 130kW/450Nm when teamed with the six-speed automatic, with 420Nm of torque for the manual variant.

In the HiAce Commuter, the turbodiesel engine produces maximum outputs of 120kW of power and 420Nm of torque.

Customer preference means that the 3.5-litre petrol V6 for HiAce will be discontinued, Toyota noted.
