How do you make an extremely popular model even more popular? Give buyers more choice.

That’s the mantra that seems to have been behind the Toyota HiLux 2018 update, which saw the big-selling pick-up gain a few new items and a couple of extra model grades across the line-up, including this new model, the Toyota HiLux SR+.

This new variant takes the work-focused SR model and adds alloy wheels and satellite navigation, and essentially fills the spot of the old SR5 - but unlike that model, the SR+ keeps vinyl flooring instead of carpet, and it still has the more work-oriented tub design, with twin levers rather than a central handle to open up the tailgate, and exposed tie-down hooks because this ain’t no show pony.

The big seller remains the SR5, and now there’s a slightly more luxe version of that model, the SR5+, which adds leather-accented seats and electric adjustment for the driver’s seat.
