Toyota Hilux, Fortuner and Innova upgraded

To kick off the second half of 2019, UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) has upgraded several features of the Toyota Hilux and added with a new variant. The Toyota Fortuner SUV and Toyota Innova MPV have also received enhancements.

Order-taking for the new models will begin at all authorized Toyota showrooms nationwide from 16 August, 2019.

For the Toyota Hilux range, a new Hilux 2.8 Black Edition replaces the Hilux 2.8 L-Edition. This new Black Edition has a bolder appearance with an exterior colour theme of black and dark grey. A glossy black finish is applied to the door handles, fog lamp covers, wing mirrors and on its 18-inch alloy wheels, while dark grey is used for the bumper guards. Dark grey is also used for the grille with contrasting black to make it even more outstanding.

The Hilux 2.8 Black Edition sits the top of the pick-up range with a selling price of RM139, 888 in Peninsular Malaysia for private registration, without insurance.  Other Hilux ranges which includes the 2.4 Single Cab M/T, 2.4 STD M/T, 2.4 G M/T, 2.4 G A/T and 2.4 L-Edition A/T are priced between RM90, 000 and RM124, 888.

The new Hilux 2.8 Black Edition now gets a new infotainment system with 6.75-inch display for a clearer view and easier operation. With Android Auto and Apple CarPlay available as standard, seamless connectivity is possible for all current smartphones (provided the required software is installed). This will enhance motoring as the driver will have access to all their favourite apps right on the dashboard.

Others recommendation is the Vehicle Telematics System (VTS), with 3 years free subscription fee for purchasing the Toyota insurance package and the Rear Digital Video Recorder (DVR).

Customers can also include with their purchase optional Advanced Safety & Security features such as the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) on the wing mirrors and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) to detect vehicles approaching from either side as it is reversing out.

The Fortuner 2.7 SRZ and 2.4 VRZ now comes with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as a standard feature, together with a large 9-inch display for its infotainment system. These provides seamless connectivity with most smartphones that have the required software installed. The large display makes viewing of information as well as operation much easier.

The Fortuner 2.4 variant now have 7 airbags as well for added occupant protection all round. The additional airbags cover the side windows, enhancing protection during side impacts as well as reducing the possibility of occupants being ejected from the cabin.

Customers can add a rear Digital Video Recorder (DVR) to the standard front unit with their purchase of a new Fortuner. They are professionally installed by UMWT’s own personnel who have been specially trained to ensure that the quality of workmanship is as high as the rest of the vehicle.

Like the Fortuner, the Innova 2.0X and 2.0G variants also gets Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard with a new and larger 9-inch display for its infotainment system.

The Blind Spot Monitor system (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert system (RCTA) are available as an optional. These two active safety systems can help to reduce collisions with other vehicles which may not be visible to the driver in certain circumstances.
