Toyota launches a Hilux once in a decade. Waiting 10 years for one of the favourite cars in the market is a long one but it also adds to the buzz around it. The Toyota Hilux 4x4 2016 Dual Cab is expected to be an upgrade at many levels because of the advancements made in the technology over the past decade.
It is one of the best buys simply because of Toyota's name being associated with it.

The 2.4-litre engine is more powerful, while the 2.0-litre engine is available only for rear drives. The petrol version comes with 2.0-litre and 2.7-litre engine options.
Safety is another important feature and this vehicle's entry in the market will keep the competitors on their toes.

The first box that Hilux ticks is that of looks. In a time where dual cabs no more look like the traditional trucks, Hilux has managed to stand out. The Hilux has been given a sleek contemporary look that can be a trendsetter for the future.
It sharp lines, striking finish and elegant design make it one good-looking truck, both on and off the road. You can drive through the busy street roads and can also hit the country back roads with equal ease.
The good work done on the outside continues inside the automobile as well, with a design that looks up to trend and apt for the real world. The cabin is much taller and wider and is easy on the eyes. There is a multi-function screen on the dash board, which is easy to use and can be used to view maps or the reversing camera.
Since it is a larger car, there is enough space both to relax and to load luggage. The style also leaves its mark on the buttons and door knobs. Attention has been given to make sure that they are within your reach. Not to forget, the seats are comfortable too.
