Prices are up but fuel consumption is down in the updated Toyota HiAce range.

The 3.0-litre turbo-diesel scores improved fuel consumption by as much as 4.6 per-cent (Long Wheelbase and Super-Long Wheelbase vans with the five-speed manual transmission on the urban cycle) thanks to a recalibration to meet Euro 5 emissions standards.

There’s also a diesel particulate filter with manual and automatic regeneration.

Two new Toyota HiAce commuter buses have been added to the range and there is now a no cost option for 12 seats instead of 14 – the 12 seater legal for drivers with a car-only licence.

And, responding to customer feedback, Toyota HiAce Long Wheelbase van (diesel only) offers a choice of standard steel panel or a window on the left-side (pictured below).

The Toyota HiAce range covers four body styles – Long Wheelbase Van, five-seat Long Wheelbase Van, Super Long Wheelbase van and commuter bus. While the Crew Van and bus models are exclusively 3.0-litre turbo-diesel, all others have the option of Toyota’s 2.7-litre petrol engine which was updated to Euro 5 standards last year.

HiAce buses with automatic transmission can fit a remote-control sliding side door.

Toyota Service Advantage provides capped price servicing for the HiAce - $180 per service for petrol or $240 for diesel (for up to six standard services for the first 3 years or 60,000kms – whichever comes first).

The weakening of the Australian dollar to the Japanese Yen sees a price rise for Toyota HiAce of 2.0 per-cent for vans and 3.8 per-cent for buses.



LWB Van - $33,650
SLWB Van -$44,870 (automatic transmission)
Commuter Bus - $58,640 (automatic transmission)

LWB Van - $36,710
LWB Crew Van - $38,750
SLWB Van - $45,890
Commuter Bus - $59,660
