The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Available new from £28,370
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.
Reasons to buy:
- More civilised on the road
- New engine improves performance
- Feels built to last
