Popular Hilux Improved with Specification Enhancements

23 October 2007
Toyota has announced a number of specification enhancements for the popular Hilux light commercial range. The changes reflect Toyota’s commitment to the constant refinement of its vehicles in keeping with the philosophy of Kaizen, or continual improvement.
The top specification Hilux Raider models benefit from a cosmetic enhancement with the grille and front bumper now fully chromed. On Double Cab Raider models the ‘Toyota’ decal is replaced with a chrome badge (this change applies to the SRX Double Cab as well). Auto up/down with safety protection for the power windows is added for the Raider Double Cab derivatives.
The Hilux SRX specification level now includes a safety package that adds ABS brakes and driver and passenger front airbags to the list of features. Central door locking is also added to the SRX specification.
Air conditioning is now available as a factory fitted option on the Hilux base models.
The Hilux is South Africa’s most popular 1-Ton light commercial regularly challenging the more popular passenger vehicles for a position in the top three sellers each month. Current performance suggests that Hilux sales will exceed 36 000 for 2007.
The Hilux is also South Africa’s top selling export vehicle and is shipped to markets in Africa and Europe in both right and left hand drive variants.
