Toyota HiAce set for rear barn doors

A rear barn door arrangement will be offered on the Toyota HiAce later this year.

Toyota Australia made the recent announcement following what it called strong customer demand.

The wide-opening rear barn door option is expected to provide customers with a new ergonomic solution to suit user needs.

With all versions of the HiAce now powered by Toyota’s 2.8-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engine and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the leading OEM has added extra safety and security features to the latest HiAce vans following the introduction of its Toyota Connected Services initiative.

Toyota was the market leader in passenger vehicle sales in March 2022.

It had 38 per cent of the market in the 2.5t to 3.5t light commercial category having sold just over 800 units.

The upcoming arrival of the rear barn door option can be expected some time in the second half of 2022.

Toyota have promised more details will be revealed closer to the model’s arrival in Australia.
