Hiace Box 7l Auto Petrol
In the Toyota product line, the Hayes model is one of the most demanded. Since 1967, the Japanese auto maker has produced over 3.6 million of these vehicles. Toyota Hiace is very popular in Russia and all over the world. The machine attracts consumers with its excellent quality-to-value ratio. For many years it has remained the most popular commercial vehicle in the CIS.
Toyota Hiace is one of the oldest minibuses. The first versions of this model appeared on the market back in 1967. Externally, the car resembled the domestic UAZ “Loaf” and was intended for the domestic market. The car was also delivered to African countries. Ten years later, the second generation of Toyota Hayes appeared, built on the H20 platform. A diesel engine has appeared in the line of power units. In 1982, the third generation of the model debuted. Its main difference was the many body versions. In 1989, the model underwent a facelift that affected the front and rear optics, grille and bumpers. Externally, the car looked like the Volkswagen Transporter of that time.
In the same year, the premiere of the fourth generation of the model took place. It was based on the rear-wheel drive platform H100. All-wheel drive was optionally offered. With the advent of this modification, Toyota Hiace gained worldwide fame. It is noteworthy that it was this generation that made its debut in the Russian car market. The car’s design has been revised. A massive bumper has appeared in front, the radiator grille has decreased in size, and the shapes have become smoother. At the same time, the features of its predecessor have been preserved in the model. Thanks to this, the demand for the Toyota Hiace IV has increased significantly, and the car production has opened in Africa, Southeast Asia and South America. The popularity of the model is evidenced by the fact that three brands at once bought out a license for the production of similar machines (Jiangnan, BAW and Foton).
The engine range has expanded markedly. Now it included gasoline and diesel units with a volume of 2-3 liters. They worked in tandem with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The model has established itself as a reliable passenger bus, and it can still be found on Russian roads.
By 2004, the demand for Toyota Hayes began to fall. The design of the car was outdated by that time, and the archaic design became obsolete. The result of the long-term work of Japanese specialists was the fifth generation of the minibus, which was fundamentally different from its predecessor. The H200 platform was chosen for the model. Toyota Hiace V featured improved safety system and increased interior space. The car was still offered in several versions.
The external changes turned out to be colossal. In the fifth generation, the model acquired a modern design with a short hood with 2 raised lines that form something like a shield, and a U-shaped radiator grille, horizontally divided by a wide “rib”. The headlights remained rectangular, and the front bumper received a rectangular hole in the central air intake, covered by three thin “blades”. Fog lights are located in the side niches.
Subsequently, Toyota Hayes V has gone through several restyling. The most significant took place in 2010. The manufacturer has completely revised the front of the car. The headlights, grille and bumper have been redesigned. The appearance of the minibus has become more strict, but has not lost its dynamism.
The scope of the car is very wide due to the many available modifications. In Russia, the number of versions of Toyota Hayes is limited, and the main direction of use is passenger transportation over medium and long distances. The minibus is often used as a tourist transport or intercity taxi.
The car has 4 doors. The number of seats can vary – 8 or 11.
