The Toyota Hiace 2020 handles well and its standard AWD gives off-road ability as well, though only the turbo model offers spirited performance.

According to documents seen by CarAdvice and images sent in by a CarAdvice reader, the new HiAce will not only lose its trademark flat front-end, but will also pick up a petrol V6 option, along with the current-generation 1GD 2.8-litre diesel engine from the Toyota HiLux and new gearbox options.

In a bid to increase the safety offering, Toyota is understood to have moved to a body with an elongated front end (similar to the Hyundai iLoad and Renault Trafic), which is aimed to improve its crash rating and increase leg room in the first row.

To accommodate the increase in length, measurements of both the short- and long-wheelbase versions of the HiAce have grown.

Short wheelbase:

Length: 4695mm (old) / 5265mm (new)
Width: 1695mm (old) / 1950mm (new)
Height: 1980mm (old) / 1990mm (new)
Weight: From 1620kg (old) / From 2150kg (new)
Long wheelbase:

Length: 5380mm (old) / 5915mm (new)
Width: 1880mm (old) / 1950mm (new)
Height: 2285mm (old) / 2280mm (new)
Weight: From 1810kg (old) / From 2325kg (new)
The HiAce will now be powered by one of two engine options: either a 3.5-litre petrol V6 engine that produces 206kW of power, or a 2.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel that produces 132kW of power.

The petrol V6 engine was most recently used in the Toyota Landcruiser Prado for the Chinese market. It includes D-4S, combined injection system and dual VVT-i.

Each engine can be optioned with either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox.

Depending on the engine, gearbox and body configuration, towing capacities range from 1400kg (braked) to 1900kg (braked) and it appears Toyota is aiming for a leading safety rating with the inclusion of side and knee airbags across the entire range.

While the HiAce represents only a small portion of sales for Toyota in Australia (just under 7000 units in 2018, compared to over 200,000 total sales), it commands a 34 per cent market share and regularly outsells the Hyundai iLoad.

We have reached out to Toyota for comment, but they’re not ready to hand over the goods just yet.

The best value in Toyota Hiace 2020 is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
