2020 Toyota Hiace Super Grandia Review
The fifth-generation Toyota HiAce has been on the market for nearly 13 years and remains one of the most-sold brand names to date. However, for 2018, Toyota will give the long-term people company a much needed update on both their power train and their safety features.
In its local market in Japan, the HiAce can now be equipped with the turbodiesel 1GD-FTV of 2.8 liters. It Is the same engine found in the new IMV vehicles of Hilux and Innova, but has been disabled for use in the HiAce. Presents 150 PS at 3600 rpm along with 300 Nm of torque available between 1000 and 3400 rpm. Another Novelty is the introduction of a six-speed automatic transmission (with manual selection), which replaces the old four-speed automatic.
In Addition to the new turbodiesel plant, the HiAce with Japanese specs can still operate on four-engined petrol-fuelled in-line engines, in particular the 2.0-litre 1TR-FE and the 2.7-liter 2TR-FE. The first produces 136 PS at 5600 rpm with 182 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm, while the latter generates 160 PS at 5200 rpm with 243 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. Like the new 2.8-liter turbo-diesel, both petrol engines are now connected to a six-speed automatic gearbox with manual selection.
As mentioned above, Toyota also equipped the renovated HiAce with an additional safety kit. Called ‘ Safety Sense P ‘, this allows the HiAce to have intelligent and active safety features such as frontal collision prevention/mitigation, crash Security, lane change alert, automatic high-light assist and detection of Pedestrians. It Works through radar-based sensors, along with a monocular camera that constantly monitors the surroundings of the van.
It is not Yet known whether Toyota Motors Philippines (TMP) will offer the updated HiAce in our market. Currently, the Philippine specification HiAce is powered by a 3.0-liter diesel turbodiesel 1KD-FTV emitting 136 PS at 3400 rpm along with a torque of 300 Nm available between 1200 and 2400 rpm. It Then connects to a four-speed automatic transmission.
The Power will be provided by a 3.5-liter, natural-suction V6 gasoline engine or a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel, with an option between a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic. Switching to a new “semi-bonnet” design means that the engine is no longer positioned at the top of the front axle, which in turn provides better ergonomics for the driver and front passenger. People sitting in front will not be disturbed by the heat and vibration coming from under the seat. In Addition, engine maintenance will be easier as the mechanics will have better access to the engine compartment.
According to Toyota, the Hiace 2019 offers lower levels of noise, vibration and hardness thanks to a completely new body derived from the design behind the company’s new TNGA platform. Upgrades made to the hardware will result in less driver fatigue over long distances and at the same time guarantee a high level of security by achieving the equivalent performance of five stars in the Euro NCAP shock test.
As before, the Toyota Hiace will be sold to a large extent in Asia, Middle East, Africa, Oceania, Latin America and Mexico. Interestingly, the JDM specification model will not make the transition to the next generation, with Toyota deciding to maintain the old model as it is, citing “a different local market environment “. The initially renovated model will be put on sale in the Philippines before. Being gradually introduced in other regions of the world.
