Updated: Specification Alignment and Upgrades for Toyota Hilux

Specification Alignment and Upgrades for Toyota Hilux

The Toyota Hilux remains South Africa's most popular vehicle, often topping not only the light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales charts but the overall one too. Offered in four bodyshape configurations; single, xtra, chassis and double-cab - there is a Hilux to suit everyone's needs.  

In August 2020, the new 'face' of Hilux was introduced alongside the new flagship Legend grade, while the long-running SRX-grade made way for Raider. This change also introduced the premium leisure Legend RS models complete with electric roller-shutter deck lid.

Based on market feedback and customer response, some notable specification tweaks have been brought to the Hilux range which will be outlined here:

Legend Grade Alignment - Double Cab

When introduced last year, the Legend 4x4 Auto models received additional specification features as the flagship of the double-cab range. While all Legend models boasted the same exterior design and visual treatment - only the 4x4 models received the full-house treatment which included a leather interior, JBL premium audio system and Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) active safety system.

For 2021, ALL Legend models (including Raised Body 4x2) now boast the following features:

  • Power-adjustable driver seat
  • Leather interior
  • Toyota Safety Sense (Pre-crash system, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control)
  • Upgrade to dual-zone climate control
  • Enhanced Smart Entry system

The JBL premium 9-speaker audio system, remains exclusive to 4x4 Legend models.

Legend Grade Alignment - Xtra Cab

Based on customer feedback, the Xtra-cab Legend models' interior is upgraded to more closely align with that of the Double-cab, with the addition of the following:

  • Leather Interior
  • Power-adjustable driver seat

Raider Spec Additions

The mid-tier Raider models represent sound value, striking a balance between utility, comfort and convenience. For 2021 they now offer even more:

  • Change to alloy spare tyre (all variants)
  • Height-adjustable driver seat (all variants)
  • Meter illumination control (all variants)
  • 60/40 rear split seat (2.4 D/Cab variants only)
  • Rear Armrest with cup holders (2.4 D/Cab variants only)
  • Seat back pockets with shopping hooks (2.4 D/Cab variants only)
  • Upgrade to dual-zone climate control (2.8 D/Cab variants only)

Deletion of Navigation System

Due to the inclusion of Android Auto/Apple CarPlay on all models fitted with an audio system, the on-board satellite navigation previously offered on selected models has been removed in lieu of customers using smartphone apps such as Google Maps, Apple Maps and Waze.

New Colour Choices

For the first time on Hilux, customers can opt for a pearl-white finish in the form of Platinum White Pearl. Based on popular demand, a limited run of Sand Beige units will also be produced between October and December 2021. Customers are requested to enquire at their nearest Toyota dealer on the availability of Sand Beige units.
