2024 is clearly a year of transformation for the Toyota Professional range of light commercial vehicles. Coming hot on the heels of the reveal of the new Verso editions of the Proace and Proace City, we can now reveal the launch of the new commercial vehicle versions of the same vans. Let’s get right into it.

New Toyota Proace

Roll-out of the new 2024 Proace range will begin with the diesel-powered Proace medium van. Customers will have a choice of formats: medium or long body lengths, a Crew Cab version with an extra row of seats, and a Platform Cab serving as the basis for specialist body types.
Power will come from the existing 2.0-litre diesel engine with output of 142bhp (145 DIN hp/106kW) and six-speed manual transmission. The Sport models will feature a powerful 174bhp (177 DIN hp/130kW) unit with eight-speed automatic transmission. Completing the powertrain line-up is the 1.5-litre 118bhp/120 DIN hp/88kW engine with six-speed manual transmission, featured in Active and Icon versions of the Proace van. The van will feature a maximum load volume of 6.6 m³, up to a best-in-class 1,400kg payload and 2,500kg towing capacity. The 1.9m height means Proace can enter standard car parks, while a 12.4m turning circle between kerbs (for medium/L1-length models) makes driving in urban environments nice and easy. At the entry-level Active trim, the equipment specification includes a 10-inch multimedia touchscreen, digital driver’s instrument display, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, rear parking sensors and a ply lining in the loadspace. Safety features include Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Assist, Automatic High Beam and automatic emergency braking with forward collision warning. The Icon spec introduces the Smart Cargo loadspace extension system, satellite navigation, a wireless phone charger and 16-inch wheels with full wheel caps. Moving up to Icon Premium adds automatic air conditioning and 17-inch alloy wheels. The new Sport grade offers 17-inch black alloys, black door handles and body-coloured bumpers, plus keyless entry and LED front fog lights. Toyota’s warranty package of up to 10 years/100,000 miles – provided on all passenger cars and commercial vehicles – offers real peace of mind. Prices start at £29,921 OTR.

2024 Proace City

The 2024 Proace City will come in two versions – medium or long body lengths – with respective load volumes of 3.8 and 4,4m3 and a one-tonne payload. All new Proace City vans will be equipped with Toyota’s Smart Cargo system. This uses a folding outer passenger seat and a hatch in the bulkhead to extend load length by 1.3m, and the passenger seatback next to the driver can also be folded to form a desktop. In addition to its interior capacity, Proace City can tow braked loads of up to 1.2 tonnes. Prices start at £23,496 OTR.
The core powertrain is the 101bhp (102 DIN hp/75kW) 1.5-diesel (badged 100hp) with six-speed manual transmission. The new Sport version will use a 129bhp (130 DIN hp/96kW) version of the same engine (badged 130hp) with either six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. At the entry-level Active grade, available exclusively in the medium body length, the vehicle comes with a 10-inch multimedia touchscreen and digital driver’s instrument cluster. Safety and assistance features include Automatic Emergency Braking with Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Road Sign Assist, Automatic High Beam and driver attention monitoring. An electric parking brake and rear parking sensors are also part of the standard package. The cargo area comes with a ply lining as standard. The Icon models (medium and long) add a navigation system, front fog lights, 16-inch wheels with full covers, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, power-folding mirrors with piano black casings, one-touch power windows, front parking sensors and a rear camera. The Sport versions add extra styling details to the Icon specification, including body-coloured door handles, bumpers, side mouldings and sliding door rail, plus 16-inch alloy wheels.
