New Car Buying Platform
The Toyota Hilux is a full-size pick-up truck and one of the longest running nameplates in Toyota’s history. Since its initial launch in 1968, the model has spawned eight generations and numerous facelifts.
The current generation Hilux model received its final upgrade in early 2020, which is currently available for purchase in the country. This new update brought along subtle cosmetic changes to the model along with more interior features to make it future ready.
The 2023 Toyota Hilux’s exterior design is utilitarian in nature. Everything on the pickup from the large trapezoidal grille to the tough bash plate scream of ruggedness. The front end features new design LED headlamps, fog lamps and a muscular bumper that enhance the butch appeal of the truck.
Towards the sides, we get to see new design chrome alloy wheels and massive body cladding. As for the rear, there are LED combination lights that complete the overall look of the vehicle.
Interior: Moving to the inside, the Hilux once again shows its utilitarian nature with its flat dashboard and mechanical grab rails.
Features: Although the Hilux is an off-road-focused vehicle, Toyota has equipped it with essential features to enhance passenger comfort. These features include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone AC, and leather seats.
Safety: In terms of safety, the New Hilux offers 7-airbags, ABS with EBD, hill assist control, front & rear parking sensors and more basic equipment as standard.
