The 2017 Toyota HiLux can be described as a rugid and smartly designed SUV. Gear transitioning is smooth overall handeability is great. It is great for traversing over rugged terrain with enough agility to get over almost anything in its path. It has many features some of which are Bluetooth connectivity, a rear view camera, cruise control, daytime running lights, 7 air bags, electronic traction control as well as an electronic stability control mechanism. It also has an integrated vehicular sway control tool which is very handy for hauling or towing over uneven or wet surfaces and the steering wheel comes with tilt and telescopic adjustment options. The four wheel drive vehicle is powered by a 2.8L four cylinder Diesel engine and a fuel consumption rate of about 8 L /100km. The chassis is solid and easily supports heavy loads and is aided by a long-travel rear suspension to dampen the effects of, rough, off-road driving conditions.
