Toyota Hilux Dual Cab (2013 7th generation N70 Double Cab)

Toyota Hilux

5 Pros

  1. The Toyota Hilux has been a regular top five seller in Australia for many years. The main reason for this is the view that it is “unbreakable
  2. For a pick up, they actually look ok (good macho looks are another reason they have been so popular)
  3. Decent rear seat space
  4. Quite good off road ability
  5. The Diesel engine is pretty fuel efficient (but much worse than most SUV’s)

5 Cons

  1. 4 out of 5 star safety – not good enough
  2. Lap only rear centre seat belt – not good enough
  3. Not that good on road, the petrol engine is not very efficient and unsurprisingly it is difficult to drive in town due to its size
  4. Towing capacity is less than competitors
  5. Generally more expensive than its peers and the Volkswagen Amrok probably has more badge value

Concluding personality type: U2: Not for everybody, but hard to argue with the popularity
