2015 Toyota HiLux SR5 Dual Cab Car Review

Overview

WHILE it finished last year as the king of the new vehicles sales market, the Toyota HiLux’s reputation for market dominance is less of a dictatorship than it once was – its opposition has closed the gap.

Ford’s Ranger rattled its cage with only 4x2 sales getting the HiLux over the line; Volkswagen has since stepped into the ring with a beefy V6 to top its twin-turbo four-cylinder Amarok range and Mitsubishi upgraded its Triton line-up without a massive change in price.

Holden has also charged back into contention with a Colorado that competes on more than just price, with notable opposition remaining from Mazda, Nissan and Isuzu, all of which means the pick-up segment is even more competitive than ever.

The vast majority of sales are automatic but if you want 3500kg braked towing capacity in a new HiLux you’ll need to operate three pedals, so we did just that.
