This beautiful Japanese van has many qualities. It is no mystery to anyone that it shares a platform with the Nissan Urvan. However, as of the 2020 model, a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel is equipped as the input engine. The gearbox will be a 6-speed manual up front.

The load capacity is almost 1,200 kg and in terms of volume, it is around 9.2 cubic meters. The configuration chosen by the brand with the interlocking rings is the long chassis and high roof. So you get more transport capacity for the money invested in the unit.

There is a large market for the transportation of personnel in our country. For this reason, Toyota also markets the version with seats with capacity for up to 12 passengers, including the driver. This version has air conditioning, cup holders for each seat and a sound system with up to 6 speakers to cover the entire interior space.

As expected, the Hiace faces tremendous competition because many world-leading brands also offer passenger and panel-type units. However, the quality and respect that the Japanese manufacturer inspires is a very great advantage over other units on the market.

The Hiace is ideal for industry and commerce and therefore it is offered for cash, credit, pure and financial leasing. A discount is also offered on fleet operations. It is also widely used on public transport routes.
