Toyota Proace City (2020): At A Glance
The Toyota ProAce City van is the only one-tonne van to get a five-year/100,000 miles warranty as standard.
Available in two wheelbases, the ProAce City is capable of carrying 1000kg payloads and is available with the choice of petrol or diesel engines. Running costs should be low, with diesels returning an advertised 67mpg.
Offered in two lengths - short and long - the smallest version of the ProAce City has a load length of 1817mm while the long version will provide up to 2167mm as standard. Both vans get the option of a Smart Cargo bulkhead loading hatch that adds 1273mm to the overall load length - up to 3440mm - by allowing the driver to use the space under the front passenger seat.
Load volumes range from 3.3 - 3.8 cubic metres for the short wheelbase van and 3.9 - 4.3 cubic metres for the long version; both get a maximum load width of 1229mm between the rear wheel arches and a load height of 1200/1270mm.
Available with two or three front seats, the van comes equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen to access audio and smartphone functions, with MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay (including Siri assistant) and Android Auto (including Google assistant), plus Bluetooth, and USB/aux-in connections.
High spec versions get a head-up windscreen display that shows the van’s speed, local limits and navigation directions. The driver can also keep check on their payload with a Smart Load Indicator that warns when 90 per cent of the maximum weight is reached and issues an alert when the load limit is exceeded.
Other features include a crew cab, with five seats and a specialised traction control system that will increase the ride height and allow the driver to navigate wintery roads or light off-road conditions.
