Toyota prices up Proace and Hilux


Toyota has released prices for its new Proace panel van and Hilux pick-up range.

The Proace was unveiled earlier this week at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, at the same time as the Citroën Dispatch and Peugeot Expert – the three vans are built together in a joint programme between PSA and Toyota and are mechanically similar.


Panel van versions of the new Proace are being offered in three body lengths including the new Compact range, with three diesel engines – 1.6 units of 94 and 113bhp and a 118bhp 2.0, five or six-speed manual transmissions and two trim levels, Base of Comfort.

The Base models include central remote locking with deadlocks, cruise control with speed limiter, fabric seat upholstery, driver and front passenger airbags, power windows and door mirrors, an audio system with radio, DAB, USB port and Bluetooth and a tyre pressure monitor.

Comfort grade adds cabin acoustic improvements, driver’s seat height adjustment, combination cloth and vinyl upholstery, air conditioning, a cooled and illuminated glovebox, additional 12V power outlets in the glovebox and cargo area, a Smart Cargo system, body colour-matched bumpers and door mirrors, front fog lamps, full wheel covers and a dashboard information display.

Prices for the new Proace start at £18,660 (CV on the road without VAT), which buys the Compact in Base trim with the 1.6 94bhp engine and five-speed gearbox.

Range-topper is the Long variant in Comfort trim, with the 2.0 118bhp engine and six-speed transmission, at £22,931.


The Hilux made its UK market debut at the CV Show. The latest generation of the renowned pick-up is powered by Toyota’s new Global Diesel (GD) 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine of 148bhp. Longer, wider and lower than the previous generation, the Hilux is described as tougher, stronger and more capable off-road, with a towing capacity increased for UK market models to 3.5 tonnes.

Hilux models are available in single, extra and double cab variants and Active, Icon, Invincible and Invincible X trims, with six-speed manual or auto gearboxes.

Prices range from £19,177 (CV OTR) to £29,435.

Proace van sales begin in September 2016 while the first new Hilux models will be delivered to buyers in July.
