Upgrades for a number of Toyota Hilux models

23 Hilux Upgrade1

What’s new?

In the case of the Xtra Cab, the most notable change is that Legend grade now includes Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) 2.0. This active safety system brings with it a Pre-Collision System (PCS), high-speed-range Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Departure Alert (LDA). TSS operation can be adjusted via dedicated steering switches or via the Multi-Information Display (MID). As part of the spec upgrade, the exterior mirrors now also incorporate a welcome light feature.

As part of a second wave of Legend grade alignment, all double-cab Legend models now boast the same specification level (including 4x2 variants, which previously omitted the JBL audio). As such, the Legend grade offers a Power-adjustable driver seat, Leather interior, Toyota Safety Sense (Pre-crash system, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control), JBL premium 9-speaker audio system, Dual-zone climate control and the Smart Entry System.

Raised Body Auto transmission models (Raider and Legend) are now equipped with an Automatic Transmission Temperature warning, conveniently reporting AT operation when conveying heavy loads or driving on steep terrain.

The existing colour palette remains, offering buyers a choice of seven hues on single cab, while Xtra and Double cab models can also be specified in Platinum White – with Attitude Black being reserved for double-cab duty.

In addition, customers are requested to enquire at their nearest Toyota dealer about the availability of Sand Beige units (available across all three body shapes in limited production numbers).
