The Toyota Hiace has been one of the best passenger haulers in Nepal ever since its arrival. You can find a Hiace just about in any part of the country. Large stature, spacious seats and if you have ever traveled in one or been in a highway duel against one of these, you know that these are fast. So much so that these vans earned the unofficial title of “Janata ko Pajero” here in Nepal. Now images have surfaced online that shows the new and improved people carrier scheduled for 2020.
The all-new premium MPV from the Japanese carmaker moves away from the cab-forward design of its predecessors. No longer sporting a cab-over design, the most significant design-based updates on the new Hiace include a proper bonnet, presumably with the placement of the engine in the front. The front also sports a more elegant exterior design with a prominent front grille, larger headlamps, and new fog lamp units.
The side profile comes with larger windows and protruding wheel arches adding muscle to this people mover. The rear comes with subtle design tweaks for the tailgate and tail lamps. The sixth generation Toyota Hiace will also be stronger in order to keep up with the upcoming crash test norms in Japan and this premium MPV will make its official debut in the fourth quarter of 2019.
