Auto Express Test Team on Hilux:
“The Hilux has forged its reputation for unbreakable reliability, toughness and off-road ability in the harshest environments, although the current production model is classier, more comfortable and nicer to drive than ever before. But Toyota hasn't forgotten practicality, as the latest model has the widest load bay yet and an improved payload capacity. Yet it still retains the legendary rugged durability that makes the Hilux so famous around the world.
“Reputation isn’t everything, but Toyota has been known as a maker of very durable products, and the Hilux in particular has always been an extremely tough and reliable vehicle. It’s really safety where things have improved for the 2016 Hilux, though. All models now come with seven airbags including curtain airbags and one for the driver’s knee. All models except the most basic single cab receive front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners, while all double cab models get ISOFIX child seat mountings.”
