Toyota HiAce 2021

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: It’s an unenviable task trying to determine a podium order here, because the accumulated scores from the 10 judging categories resulted in a final tally which had only a four-point gap between first and third.

Toyota HiAce 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota HiAce here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does my 2007 Toyota Hiace make a whistling noise?

    I’ll take a stab in the dark here and suggest that your van is a turbo-diesel (there was a petrol version offered as well, but the diesel was much more popular). If that’s the case, you could be dealing with a turbocharger that’s showing wear. Specifically, this is likely to be in the turbo’s bearing which will become noisy (and potentially emit a whistling noise) as the bearing starts to degrade. Turbochargers often spin at speeds of up to 250,000rpm, so the bearing really has its work cut out.

    The clue to all this is that the vehicle starts whistling when you press the throttle; that is, when you place a load on the engine and ask the turbocharger to start providing boost. That’s when the worn bearing becomes loaded (and noisy). But you could also be looking at something much simpler such as an exhaust that has collapsed internally and is offering a whistling soundtrack, or even a loose piece of intake plumbing that is also allowing the air passing over it to whistle. Perhaps there’s something in the gearbox that is making a high-pitched noise as well. You really need to have the vehicle looked at by somebody who knows their HiAces and take it from there.

  • Toyota HiAce 2003: Which variant is the best?

    There’s no real difference in reliability or maintenance, but the SBV is more comfortable and feels a little safer with a little more sheetmetal ahead of you. I would prefer to be driving the SBV. It’s value would be $6000-$8000.

  • Toyota HiAce 2018: Whistling sound

    It’s unlikely to be in your engine as such; rather it’s probably associated with the engine’s intake system. As it’s new take it to your Toyota dealer and have them fix it under warranty.

  • Toyota HiAce 1987: What's it worth?

    A HiAce of that period is generally worth between $1000 and $2000, but being rusty and unroadworthy yours is not worth that much. It could be worth a couple of hundred dollars, but I reckon you’ll struggle to give it away.

Toyota HiAce 2021 Seats

The Toyota HiAce Crew Van has a good driving position with ample seat adjustability. With seating for the driver and one front passenger the HiAce is only a five-seater, where key competitors can seat six. There's rear seating for up to three passengers, each with three head restraints, three full lap-sash belts and ISOFIX on the two outer positions.

Toyota HiAce 2021 Interior

The Toyota HiAce Crew Van features opening side-door glass, but lacks the robust moulded polycarbonate bulkhead found in key competitors (which insulates their crew zones from cargo bay noise and double as sturdy cargo barriers). There are numerous bottle/cup holders and storage bins for driver and front passengers, but the absence of these conveniences in the sliding rear side-doors is a significant oversight of rear passenger comfort that should be addressed.

Toyota HiAce 2021 Speed

The Toyota HiAce Crew Van weighs more than two tonnes, and despite a relatively modest engine displacement has ample torque which provides excellent throttle response and relatively brisk acceleration. Expect 0-100km/h acceleration in the 10- to 12-second zone.
