Indus Motor Company (IMC) has launched the 2019 Toyota HiAce, called as HiAce Deluxe in Pakistan.
The all new 6th generation HiAce made its debut earlier this year replacing the 5th generation that spanned for over 15 years. The new HiAce is built on a platform specially developed for this model. This is the first time that the HiAce gets a protruding bonnet, allowing new engines to be fitted. In addition to bonnet, the new HiAce gets angular headlamps, bolder grille with thick chrome bar, compact lower air intake and sportier bumper with vertical LED DRLs above the fog lamps.
The most noticeable difference between this model and the previous one is that the engine has been repositioned to the front, giving it a protruding bonnet. This has been done with safety features in mind as in the event of a collision, the bonnet will soften the blow.
The added bonus is that this will allow a far more comfortable ride; alongside a new dashboard in the interior and will make life easier for the mechanics.
The model also features angular headlamps, a departure from the old model and a broader grille with a large chrome bar. In an attempt to spruce up the van, it has LED lights below the headlamps – another first. Interestingly, the new model in another departure from the old double door approach – this one only has one door.
