Safety first in the Toyota Hilux Legend 45


RC Myburgh

The Toyota Hilux is world-renowned for its safety and no matter the challenge you put it through, you can rest assured that the bakkie will keep you and its occupants safe.
Limpopo’s terrain is the ideal habitat to the Hilux and rough surfaces a piece of cake to conquer. A specially engineered frame structure increases rigidity without compromising on strength or durability. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) regulates the hydraulic pressure of the brakes and a load sensing proportioning and bypass valve optimises the effectiveness of the rear brakes. The front seat belts have a three-point ELR pretensioning system and seatbelts are supplied for all passengers in the back seat. Front, side and curtain shield airbags add extra peace of mind along with a wireless door lock, an immobiliser with built-in alarm, a tailgate that locks and a spare wheel with an anti-theft lock.
Just one look at the Hilux’s exterior on Limpopo Toyota’s showroom floor and you quickly come conclusion that the muscular design of the bakkie has been shaped and evolved from over four decades of toughness. The powerful Hilux body is held together securely with bold, modern lines. The stylish grille, headlights and tail lights grab attention and the no-nonsense rounded, colour-coded front bumper is perfectly integrated into the body of the bakkie.

The Hilux is a legend through and through. It is the complete package with brawn and brains. Smart features make handling tough tasks a pleasure – power steering, air conditioning, electrically adjustable windows, a Multi-Information Display and an audio system complete with Bluetooth, USB and iPod input.
The interior stores all your gear easily and securely with smart storage solutions like push-open overhead console and handy storage space underneath the rear seat of the double cab. The Hilux also sports a modern designed steering wheel, LED lit instrument panel and optitron instrumentation.
When it comes to performance the Hilux stands out from the crowd. The powerful 2,0 litre, 2,7 litre, 4,0 litre V6 petrol and 2,5 litre and 3,0 litre diesel engines are built to stand the test of time. And with great power comes great agility. The Hilux range has built a name of excellent manoeuvrability, handling and stability. The 4×4 models deliver high capacity part-time transfer, shaft and Artificial Intelligence (AI) – SHIFT control on the 4,0 litre automatic models enables comfortable driving by automatically switching the shifting pattern according to any road condition and your intent as a driver.
Even when the going gets tough, the Hilux remains smooth and stable. The 4×2 models have a front suspension with a double-wishbone with coil spring and the 4×4 models have a high-mount-type upper arm front suspension. The rear suspension has a combination of leaf springs and twin tube shock absorbers to handle the toughest of terrains and road conditions.
