In announcing prices, Toyota Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said,  “We focused on making the new-generation vehicle an even better tool of trade through enhanced design, increased performance, a quiet cabin, smooth ride and improved handling and agility.

“Its impressive carrying capacity is even more flexible and user-friendly with increased internal width and height, and dual sliding side doors on van models which, for the SLWB variants, can take a standard Australian pallet.

“We are also providing HiAce customers with the same level of safety as people who buy our passenger cars and SUVs with a full suite of advanced Toyota Safety Sense technologies,” Hanley said.

Toyota said that safety had been a key concern when redesigning the HiAce which has lagged the market in terms of safety features. This all-new HiAce offers a pre-collision safety system with pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, road sign assist and auto high beam. Other standard safety features include cruise control, anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability control, blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert, reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors and up to nine airbags depending on the variant.

The Crew Van variant is being positioned as a multi-use vehicle offering a three-position second-row bench seat with a 60:40-split fold seatback, side curtain airbags, two rear ISOFIX child restraint anchors, opening rear windows and a rear vent. As well as the HiAce Vans, Toyota will continue to offer a passenger variant with the Commuter available in two grades, both powered by the turbodiesel/automatic transmission powertrain.

Based on the SLWB platform, the 12-seat features reclining seat backs, front and rear interior lights, rear air conditioning with vents for every seat position and carpet throughout. The Commuter GL ups this with body-coloured front and rear bumpers and door handles, halogen front fog lights, LED daytime running lights, chrome trim garnishes, power rear sliding door, 16-inch alloy wheels and increased sound insulation and acoustic glass. Rear passengers also benefit from USB charge outlets, eight reading lights, and independent controls for the rear air conditioning.

Like all new Toyota vehicles, the new HiAce will also be covered by Toyota’s five-year warranty.
