Toyota South Africa has made a number of changes and upgrades to their Hiace and Quantum model ranges in order to meet current requirements and customer needs.


Upgraded driver shield for Hiace Ses’fikile

South Africa’s most loved people mover has received an upgrade in response to the prevailing COVID-19 operating conditions. In support of the local taxi industry and to ensure the safety of drivers and commuters, Toyota South Africa has introduced an upgraded driver shield to the Ses’fikile commuter. This shield provides additional protection for the driver against possible COVID-19 transmission and ensures added peace of mind for both drivers and passengers.

All Hiace Ses’fikile models produced from October 2020 onwards are fitted as standard with the COVID-19 driver guard.


Added convenience for Quantum

The Quantum range now sports added comfort and convenience features along with exterior upgrades on selected models. The GL bus inherits 16-inch alloy wheels shod with 235/65-R16 tyres, replacing the previously employed steel versions, while also standardising the wheel size between 11 and 14 seater models.

An upgraded rear-view mirror incorporates an auto-dimming function as well as a reverse camera display on all models including the panel van and crew cab. The newly added reverse camera provides drivers with a clear view behind the vehicle, offering improving visibility while also promoting safety.


Model line-up rationalisation

Based on market response and customer feedback, Toyota SA has reduced the number of derivatives within the panel van and crew cab ranges. The non-air-conditioned models have been discontinued while the crew-cab line-up has been simplified by deleting the rear air-conditioned version from the line up.
