Toyota Australia has reduced pricing with the introduction of a new variant specifically developed for the mining sector and for small to medium-size businesses such as plumbers, electricians and building industry contractors.
The HiLux 4×4 SR Double Cab offers a tray back with 3.0 litre turbo-diesel power and a five-speed automatic transmission for a reduced pricing structure of $43,740, a saving of $1500 compared to the ute version.
HiLux has a five star ANCAP safety rating. HiLux has been Australia’s best-selling four-wheel-drive vehicle since 2005 and number one in commercial-vehicle sales since 1998. Overall HiLux sales have topped 820,000 since the first model arrived in 1971.
Safety features in the new variant include six airbags, stability and traction control, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution.
Every new HiLux is covered by the capped-price Toyota Service Advantage at a maximum of $170 per service.
