CV Show 2016: New Toyota Hilux and Hiace to make UK debuts

Published 06 January 2016

Toyota is expected to unveil its new commercial vehicle line-up at the CV Show 2016 at the NEC Birmingham on the 26 - 28 April, with both the Proace panel van and Hilux pick-up both rumoured to be getting their respective UK debuts at the show. 

Details on the new Hilux – pictured above – are still scarce, but UK models are expected to get Toyota’s new 177PS 2.8-litre D-4D turbodiesel engine along with a 150PS 2.4-litre diesel. The larger 177PS unit will be the same unit used in the updated Land Cruiser and, although smaller than the 3.0-litre engine it’s replacing, will offer 25 per cent more torque with 450Nm.

As well as improved economy and power delivery, the new Hilux will also get more towing capacity; however, Toyota is yet to confirm what the new ratings will be. Expect the Hilux to reach showrooms by the winter of 2016 and boast a new car-like interior, with better refinement and more standard equipment.

The new Proace - pictured below – will reach the UK in the summer of 2016 and is the result of a co-development project between Citroen Peugeot and Toyota. The van will be built in northern France and be powered by a new range of four-cylinder diesels, with outputs varying from 102PS to 180PS.

The Proace will look to dislodge the current mid-sized van champions - Ford Transit Custom and Volkswagen Transporter - and feature mobile office style cabin, with improved connectivity for smartphones and laptops. There's no details on payloads yet, but we expect the Proace to match its rivals with a maximum payloads of between 729kg and 1333kg. 

The CV Show 2016 takes place Birmingham's NEC from 26 - 28 April. Entry is free.

Wow this such a massive car and so beautiful to use. This is a super fit car for a big family. It has more than eight seats which is really impressive. I have been looking forward to buy this kind of car and searching for it on essayswriting blogs for many models. But none of them impressed me. This one is the real show {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}
