Hilux Invincible-07

The compact hatchback may be the European car of choice, but everyone needs their workhorses. And when it comes to one-tonne pick-up trucks, the Toyota Hilux is the default choice, whether as a rugged ute in Australia or a low rider with cargo twice its height in Thailand. Success doesn’t come overnight – its reputation has been bulit over 46 years, with sales now totalling around 15 million units.

Today, lifestyle sales are of growing importance to the pick-up market. In Europe, of the current DLX, DLX+, SR and SR+ Hilux variants, the range-topping SR+ versions represent over 40% of the mix in many leading markets. And in recognition of the pick-up’s role to dual-usage customers, the European Hilux line-up is being extended to include a new range topping ‘Invincible’ grade.

The Hilux Invincible Sport adds chrome hi-bars, and the optional availability of a new hard-top, chrome side bars, new 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels and full leather seats in black.
