The Toyota Hiace was launched for the first time in 1967 and since then has been available in a wide range of body styles, being perfectly suited for various commercial applications.
The fifth generation was launched in 2004 and is offered as a wide long-wheelbase wagon, wide super-long-wheelbase high-roof "Grand Cabin", long-wheelbase van, long-wheelbase high-roof van and a wide super-long-wheelbase high-roof van.
One of the most significant interior upgrades made to the new model was the dash mounted gear knob.
Power comes from a range of four cylinder DOHC engines combined with manual or automatic transmissions. The Australian and Asian versions of the Hiace come with a different exterior design and unique technical specifications than the European models .
