Toyota Hilux Pickup (2020 - )

The Toyota Hilux has a rock-solid reputation for reliability and dependability and is a previous winner of the 'best pick-up' prize in the Auto Trader awards, qualities that make it one of the most popular vehicles in markets where driving and working conditions are tough. Conditions here may be less demanding but for commercial users and a growing number of ‘lifestyle’ owners pick-up trucks are increasingly popular, Toyota catering to the latter with wide-ranging updates for the 2020 model year to improve on-road refinement and a bigger 2.8-litre engine to keep pace with rivals like the Volkswagen Amarok and Ford Ranger.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Given its heavyweight reputation the starting price for more basic, utility versions of the Hilux are impressively keen and only a fraction more than the likes of the Isuzu D-Max, Mitsubishi L200, Nissan Navara and Ford Ranger. This is good news for commercial operators, who value affordability as well as reliability. CO2 emissions and fuel economy have never been a Hilux strong point and the 2.4-litre doesn’t compare well with the smaller motors most rivals at this level use, though.

The new 2.8-litre engine is available in the higher trim levels only and costs about £1,000 more like for like. With 204 horsepower it finally gives Toyota a foothold in the lucrative over 175 horsepower market that accounts for nearly three-quarters of pick-up sales but the Hilux hasn’t had a presence in until now. These higher output trucks are popular with lifestyle users attracted to pick-ups as a ‘statement’ purchase and alternative to a regular family SUV . Cheaper fixed-rate Benefit In Kind is another attraction of running a commercial vehicle as a company car compared with those designated passenger cars – just remember if you’re comparing costs that pick-up prices are often listed before VAT so private buyers need to account for that.
