Brand New Toyota Hiace Panel Van Debuts In Malaysia

An all-new panel van is strutting to shake up the world of commercial vehicles in Malaysia. Reservations (check here) are now being accepted for the brand-new Toyota Hiace Panel Van 3.0L at UMW Toyota. With its advanced features, the newest model in the manufacturer’s inventory promises to certainly give rivals a run for their money.

The highly-anticipated Hiace Panel Van 3.0L redefines the cargo space standards with a load length of 2900 mm. The van also features an enhanced 3.0-litre 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve turbo-diesel engine, representing a substantial upgrade over its predecessor, which was equipped with a 2.5-litre engine.

This beefy powerplant can easily handle just about any load thanks to its 136 PS and torque of 300 Nm at 1200 – 2400 rpm. It also conforms with strict Euro 4 pollution regulations. According to the carmakers, the van offers excellent fuel efficiency and fits with Toyota’s aim for a greener future when paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. For companies looking for economical solutions, the new Panel Van is the best option due to its performance and sustainability combination.

The van is equipped with all the safety equipment such as reverse sensors, load sensing proportioning and bypass valve, high-mount stop lamp, and an anti-lock braking system. Together, these features guarantee a secure and safe driving environment for the driver and any accompanying passengers.

In addition, the Hiace Panel Van 3.0L has an optional 7.0-inch touchscreen music system with Bluetooth connectivity, a reverse camera, and seamless connectivity.

“Built to ‘Move Your World,’ the Hiace Panel Van 3.0L embodies our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and delivering vehicles that meet our customers’ evolving needs,” Toyota said.

Customers in Malaysia who are interested in purchasing the all-new Hiace Panel Van 3.0L can now make reservations by visiting their preferred authorised Toyota dealership.


This is big news for the commercial vehicle market as Toyota’s Hiace is the segment leader. And from what we see here—with that new gutsy 3.0-litre turbodiesel and enhanced interior appointments—it will continue to hold that top spot for many years to come.
