The Popular Car information about 2013 Toyota Hilux Price , Redesign , Specs, MPG, Changes and Picture.
It was back in 1968 once the Toyota HiLux came into existence and not till 1979 that it even got a 4WD system. thus it’s been through the past forty three years of improvement that the HiLux has earned its name as a correct, unbreakable workhorse or sensible family vehicle.
As of these days over fourteen million Toyota HiLux vehicles are sold-out worldwide, of that a staggering 700,000 have come back to Australia (1/20). It’s no marvel then, that the HiLux remains the dominant player in its class and one among the popular vehicles in Australia normally.
Nonetheless, times square measure dynamical and despite its indisputable credentials, growing competition from low cost Chinese utes, a relentless effort by Volkswagen’s Amarok, the Ford Ranger and Mazda BT-50 has meant that Toyota has had to reply.
To give it a additional competitive advantage, the updated seventh-generation Toyota HiLux possesses its share of recent options. From the skin everything from the A-pillar forward has been updated (new bonnet, grille, headlamps and front bumper) and also the rear gets new combination lamps (for pick-up models).
The diesel engine is noisy and not very refined, but the 3.0-litre capacity propels the Hilux to 62mph in 11.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 109mph. It develops 171bhp and 253lb ft, which isn’t earth shattering but is more than enough to make the Hilux quick enough to be able to keep up with the rest of the traffic.
Fuel consumption is likely to be around 25-30mpg, which isn’t too bad given the Hilux’s capacity for hard work. Sadly, the CO2 emissions figure is 246g/kms, which isn’t great these days.
It’s a bit “dreary” in the cabin but it’s durable and should last as long as the rest of the car, which in the case of the Hilux, is a very long time. There are three versions available: a Twin Cab, with two seats; a Double Cab, with two rows of seats and five spaces in total; and the Extra Cab, which has two fold-down occasional seats in the back.
There are only two airbags, an indicator of the Hilux’s essentially commercial position in the vehicle market. Further proof comes in the shape of a non-height adjustable driver’s seat and the provision of just a lap-strap in the middle seat in the back of the twin-cab version. Don’t expect luxury inside this vehicle.
Safety remains a point of concern for the Toyota HiLux 4×2 range, with no standard side or curtain-shield airbags on offer. It’s only on the 4×4 SR and above variants that the life-saving technology is added as standard equipement. In comparison, all Amarok variants come standard with a full compliment of airbags and safety features.
