RECIRCULAING ball and nut, power-assisted steering is standard across the range. The three-spoke steering wheel has a comfortable grip and the vehicle takes 12.2 metres to complete a full circle, with the steering wheel requiring 4.1 turns lock to lock.

Two control stalks are fitted to the HiLux - the one on the right of the steering wheel is indicators and headlights on/off and high beam, and on the left is window wipers and wash. Toyota offers a driver and passenger airbag as an option.
