a segment share of 21.6 % 2.

The Toyota Hilux is the only pick-up available with a separate ladder chassis on all three

body types - Single Cab, Extra Cab and Double Cab..

With a choice of 2.5 litre, 144 hp and 3.0 litre, 171 hp D-4D diesel engines mated to

manual or automatic transmissions (only with 3.0l), the Hilux offers customers the widest

model line-up in the European pick-up segment.

Toyota is continuously improving the Hilux line-up in response to the requirements of

customers in the work, leisure and adventure arenas.

To that end, the towing capacity of the 2010 Hilux 4WD has been increased by 250 kg to

2.5 tons.

Already available on the 3.0 litre D-4D, the high, SR+ grade was made more accessible

through its availability with 2.5 litre D-4D models. SR+ incorporates automatic airconditioning,

sports seats, side and curtain airbags, 17" alloy wheels and Vehicle Stability

Control.

The Hilux also features a comprehensive range of accessories, which increase the pick-up's

comfort and practicality in both work and leisure environments. This range includes side
