Toyota will significantly increase the safety technology offered on its HiLux with the addition of Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance features as part of a range-wide upgrade arriving at CMI Toyota over the coming months.
All models gain:
- pre-collision safety system with day and night pedestrian detection and day cyclist detection
- high-speed active cruise control
- lane departure alert with steering assistance
- road sign assist.
The substantial upgrade in features is expected to deliver a five-star 2019 ANCAP safety rating for HiLux and comes at a minimal price increase of between $800 and $8751 depending on the variant.
The comprehensive safety package will become standard on every variant of Australia's best-selling vehicle from the tough HiLux WorkMate cab-chassis to the top-of-the-range HiLux Rugged X.
Updated 4x2 and 4x4 HiLux single and double-cab versions go on sale on July 8, with Rugged, Rogue and Rugged X models available from August 1 and HiLux extra cab variants on sale from August 26.
