Toyota Hiace in the performance of "Standard" is designed for 13 passengers. But the versions of "superior comfort" in the cabin put only eight seats: the driver-the ninth, while the seats for passengers are made according to the "captain" scheme, that is, separate (though on the second and third rows).
At the same time, the length of the bus itself decreased by 615 mm (wheelbase-650 mm), but the developers managed to keep a roomy trunk, which can be increased by shifting the seats of the "gallery".
Externally, the novelty will differ from the standard Hiace by a more status decor of the body with the original grille, 17-inch wheels and fully led optics. Body colors are offered only strict: black, gray, white and silver metallic.
"Captain" chairs in the interior are equipped with armrests and individual adjustments and can be finished with leather both black and beige. The passenger capsule has atmospheric lighting, independent climate control, individual lighting lamps and USB ports, as well as electric drives on the side door and trunk lid.
The top version of Hiace VIP for the first time received a proprietary complex of active security systems. In addition, the equipment list includes seven airbags, a multimedia system with a rear view camera, light and rain sensors, tire pressure sensors and a Keyless access system.
Status Toyota Hiace appeared in Russia in two versions – "elegance" and "Prestige Safety". Both will be equipped with a 2.8-liter diesel developing 150 HP and 420 Nm paired with a 6-speed automatic, as well as a spring-loaded rear suspension instead of a spring on a standard bus.
