TOYOTA HILUX gets a new variant in Malaysia
For the Toyota Hilux range, a new Hilux 2.8 Black Edition replaces the Hilux 2.8 L-Edition. This new Black Edition has a bolder appearance with an exterior colour theme of black and dark grey. A glossy black finish is applied to the door handles, fog lamp covers, wing mirrors and on its 18-inch alloy wheels, while dark grey is used for the bumper guards. Dark grey is also used for the grille with contrasting black to make it even more outstanding.
The Hilux 2.8 Black Edition sits the top of the pick-up range with a selling price of RM139, 888 in Peninsular Malaysia for private registration, without insurance. Other Hilux ranges which includes the 2.4 Single Cab M/T, 2.4 STD M/T, 2.4 G M/T, 2.4 G A/T and 2.4 L-Edition A/T are priced between RM90, 000 and RM124, 888.
The new Hilux 2.8 Black Edition now gets a new infotainment system with 6.75-inch display for a clearer view and easier operation. With Android Auto and Apple CarPlay available as standard, seamless connectivity is possible for all current smartphones (provided the required software is installed). This will enhance motoring as the driver will have access to all their favourite apps right on the dashboard.
Introducing also as recommended is Vehicle Telematics System (VTS), with 3 years free subscription fee by purchasing the Toyota insurance package. In addition, the Rear Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is to supplement the one installed at the front. With this additional DVR covering the back of the vehicle it will be a useful evidence in the event of a rear-end collision.
Customers can also include with their purchase optional Advanced Safety & Security features such as the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) on the wing mirrors and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) to detect vehicles approaching from either side as it is reversing out.
