Many vehicles can indeed boast about everything from specifications to performance, from innovation right down to pricing. Toyota does not assemble just any vehicle, however. Many of them have taken up a special place in South African culture, and the taxi is one of them. Our landscape is simply not complete without the sighting of a Hiace on the road.

Hitting the nail on the head when it comes to assembling these vehicles is important, as it is not just done with the individual in mind. People carriers such as the Toyota Hiace Ses’fikile need to tread the line between remaining innovative but still as practical and comfortable as possible.

The Toyota Hiace Ses’fikile is currently available in two different variants:

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

It is important to note that the range has been designed with practicality and safety in mind. There are plenty of safety features to observe here such as the recognizable anti-lock braking system (ABS) and brake assist innovation. Given that this is a people carrier, placing emphasis here is paramount. One of the standout features is the addition of vehicle-stability control. It is a useful innovation that aids the taxi if it needs to navigate corners.

The exterior design of the Ses’fikile is not simply for the sake of aesthetics. Consumers keen on catching the 6 am ride into the CBD will be able to see it coming from around the corner due to the redesign of the headlamps. A unique standout when we peruse the interior of the taxi is the addition of PVC flooring. This addition is important as it assists passengers in the instance that they may slip.

The latest range is a strong performer with the choice of either a 2.7l or 2.5l turbo diesel engine. There is also the option of either a 14-seater or a 16-seater. It is great to observe that Toyota has placed as much emphasis on safety as it has on space.
