Even if you blink, you cannot miss it. With the South African flag emblazoned on its side, the Toyota Hiace Ses’fikile is one of the most popular people carriers in the country. A vehicle rarely occupies such a unique position, but our model is one of the preferred methods of transportation in the land. It is responsible for transporting thousands of commuters to and from work and is easily identifiable on any motorway.

The latest range of Ses’fikile’s from Toyota has been upgraded to enhance its reliability and safety. Due to the high demand for this model, it is only natural for Toyota to focus its attention on these elements. The new range is available in two different variants:

  • Toyota Hiace 2.7 Ses'fikile
  • Toyota Hiace 2.5D-4D Ses'fikile 16s

One of the most impressive aspects of this new range is the focus on safety features. This is most notable when we observe the addition of the COVID Driver Safety Guard. This addition is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it enhances the safety of drivers and passengers, especially with the regulations put into place when it comes to distance. Some recognizable safety features have also been included, such as emergency exits, safety belts, and central locking.

The Toyota Hiace Ses’fikile also comes equipped with a spread of driver-assist technologies, which ensure a safe and smooth ride. These include Traction Control, which enhances the stability of the vehicle. There is also the important inclusion of Brake Assist and Anti-lock Braking System functionalities, as well as Hill-Assist. These additions greatly assist in the instance of any precarious driving situation.

The Toyota Hiace Ses’fikile has also enjoyed some light touches to its exterior design. The radiation grille and front bumper have been given a facelift, as have the rear combination lamps and headlamps. The effect is a more dominant and visually appealing taxi and ensures that your passengers can see you coming.

Depending on the chosen variant, motorists can choose between either a 2.7l four-cylinder engine or a 2.5 diesel engine. Either will keep passengers safe and secure on the road. Another highlight of the range is the affordability factor. Prices range from R512 700 - R544 700. Models in this range must remain as affordable as possible, and Toyota has ensured that. Let’s explore this model's accessories.
