The award-winning Toyota Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) line-up is getting bigger! The all-new Toyota PROACE City compact van range will be joining the Hilux pick-up and the Land Cruiser Utility Commercial after it has made its world debut at the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre on Tuesday 30th April.
The new PROACE City models are said that they will give Toyota a strong entry into the key compact segment and increase the breadth and appeal of its light commercial vehicle range.
PROACE City will be available with a range of petrol and diesel powertrains offering a power spread from 75 to 130 DIN hp, and a choice of five or six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions. It has also been announced that Toyota will introduce BEV (battery electric vehicle) versions of the PROACE range, including PROACE City.
The PROACE City range meets a wide range of business needs, with different loading and seating configurations and powertrain options. The compact van is available in two different lengths: short (4.4m) and long (4.7m). The PROACE Verso City offers 5 or 7 seats on both the short and the long version.
Clever and capacious storage points are featured throughout the cabin (according to model). The van is available with either 2 individual front seats or a 3-seat bench, the latter additionally offering a Smart Cargo option, like that seen on the larger PROACE model.
The PROACE City Verso offers flexible passenger accommodation, with the option on 3 individual seats or a 60:40 split-folding bench in the second row. A third row can be added to both the long and short body versions. All passenger seats fold flat, including the front seat, to maximise load capacity and convenience.
The safety features provide high levels of active safety, meeting customer requirements in three different packs. As standard, these include a Pre-Collision System, Road Sign Assist, Lane Keep Assist and Cruise Control.
PROACE City is also packed with the latest comfort and connectivity technologies such as: Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, rear view camera and a head-up display presenting presenting key driving information directly in the drivers eye-line.
NB UK specifications and equipment availability will be confirmed nearer to the time of launch.
