Toyota has confirmed pricing and specifications for its long-awaited new-generation HiAce.

The HiAce will be available in five spec levels with the choice of two engines, either a 3.5-litre V6 or 2.8-litre turbo-diesel, with price (before on-road costs) ranging from $38,640 to $70,140.

This represents a mild price jump over the outgoing HiAce, with the discontinuation of the previous entry-level 2.7-litre petrol engine and five-speed manual combination.

Kicking off the range is the LWB van 3.5-litre V6 six-speed manual at $38,640 (MSRP). Included is a height-adjustable driver’s seat, telescopically adjustable steering column, air-conditioning, cruise control, and a 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen supporting DAB+ digital radio, built-in nav and Bluetooth connectivity.

All HiAces now benefit from Toyota’s 'Safety Sense' suite, which includes auto emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keep assist (LKAS) with lane departure warning (LDW), ‘road sign assist’ and auto high-beam.

All HiAces also come with front & rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

The new-generation HiAce benefits from passenger-car style multimedia and connectivity. The new-generation HiAce benefits from passenger-car style multimedia and connectivity.

The LWB can be had as a six-speed manual 2.8-litre turbo-diesel at a $3500 premium. A six-speed auto can be had on either engine at a cost of $2000.

Stepping up to the LWB Crew Van adds a second row of seats with extra airbags to cover them, opening rear windows, a rear air vent, and ISOFIX child seat mounting points.

The Crew Van also comes standard with an (otherwise optional) $1000 pack which adds chrome trimmings, body-coloured bumpers & door handles, fog lights and an auto-dimming rear vision mirror with a feature that displays the reversing camera’s view when the mirror is obstructed by cargo.

The Crew Van is only available with the 2.8-litre diesel automatic option and is priced at $47,140.

Next in line is the Super Long Wheelbase (SLWB), available as a six-speed auto only with either the 3.5-litre V6 or 2.8-litre turbo-diesel (priced at $48,640 and $52,140 respectively) the SLWB has 9.0 cubic metres of storage capacity and a cargo floor able to accept an Australian standard pallet.

SLWB variants will take a standard Australian pallet. SLWB variants will take a standard Australian pallet.

At the top of the range is the automatic, 2.8-litre diesel-only Commuter and Commuter GL. Both are based on the SLWB floorplan, and have 12 seats with reclining backs and their own air-vents, more thorough interior lighting and carpet, as well as a total of nine airbags.

The Commuter GL gains all the features of the Crew Van, but adds 16-inch alloy wheels, LED DRLs, power sliding doors, premium seat trim, USB charge outlets, independent air-conditioning controls and reading lights for passengers, increased sound insulation, and acoustic glass.

Passenger variants are available with up to 12 seats. Passenger variants are available with up to 12 seats.
