Toyota HiLux 2021

The 2021 Toyota HiLux range of configurations is currently priced from $23,590. Our most recent review of the 2021 Toyota HiLux resulted in a score of 8.6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: It’s a sign of the ever-increasing popularity of 4x4 dual cabs that Toyota would offer a more upmarket version of a body type traditionally reserved for base model grades. The SR5’s generous standard equipment list and high-grade interior trim could have considerable appeal for tradies and adventurers alike in this new cab-chassis configuration.

This is what Mark Oastler liked most about this particular version of the Toyota HiLux: Build quality/upmarket style, 3500kg tow rating, 150kW/500Nm

The Toyota HiLux Ute competes with similar models like the Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton and Isuzu D-Max in the Under $30k category category.

The 2021 Toyota HiLux carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

The Toyota HiLux is also known as the Toyota Pickup (US) in markets outside Australia.

Toyota HiLux 2021 Accessories

If you want a 2021 Toyota HiLux, you probably want to accessorise it to suit your particular use case. And if you’re not interested in exploring aftermarket options - maybe you can get a friendly Toyota dealer rep to bundle a bunch of accessories in for a good price - then you will be happy to know there are plenty of things to choose from.

Options range from a steel or alloy bull bar (which is guaranteed to work with the HiLux’s safety systems), nudge bar, winch, bonnet protector, LED light bar, driving lights, snorkel, side rails, recovery points, side steps, tub liner, tonneau cover (hard lid cover or soft), tow bar, weather shields, sports bar, roof rack system, heavy duty rear step bumper, and even a new Tub Step that is mounted to the rear corner of the chassis to help you jump in and out easier. There’s also a clever Bed Slide system, which allows you to roll out your gear from the tub and access it without climbing in.

In the cabin you might want to choose canvas or fabric seat covers, rubber or carpet floor mats, a first aid kit or you might want to secure your tub with a canopy - there are a few different options to choose from.

If you’ve got the need for a cab-chassis ute rather than a pick-up, there is also a range of tray body options available including aluminium or steel, and just remember the choice you make will affect your payload capacity. There's even a new trundle tray option for additional secure storage under the table-top tray.

Toyota HiLux 2021 Interior

The 2021 Toyota HiLux interior hasn’t changed all that much compared to the previous models. Well, at a glance it hasn’t - but delve a little deeper and you’ll uncover some welcome adjustments to the cabin of the facelifted HiLux.

All models now get a digital speedometer and redesigned instrument cluster, which helps if you’re keeping an eye on your licence. The new trip computer also makes its easier to watch your real-world fuel use, too.

The other big change is the new media system - an 8.0-inch touchscreen with smartphone mirroring tech by way of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. That means you can mirror your phone’s main apps to the screen, and thankfully there are also knobs for volume and tuning rather than buttons, as Toyota says it copped grief from customers about the previous model’s screen and controls.

Toyota HiLux 2021 Seats

The model you choose will determine how many seats you get in the 2021 Toyota HiLux.

Single cab versions have two seats. Simple enough - there’s no bench seat in this ute anymore, and that could be good after a long day on the tools.

Extra cab versions of the HiLux have four seats. The rear ones in the extra cab models are accessed via ‘suicide’ doors (rear-hinged back doors that are about half the width of a regular back door). A lot of extra cab buyers instead use this space for secure storage, or for pet transport. The back seats aren’t comfortable, and there are no child seat anchor points fitted in extra cab models either.

The dual cab or double cab models have five seats for all trim lines. The rear seats are reasonable for the class, but certainly not the most spacious. The seat base can either fold up in one piece or in a 60:40 fashion, depending on the variant. Dual ISOFIX child seat tethers and two top-tether hooks are fitted, and the top tethers feed to a centre secure lashing location - you can’t fit three child seats in the back.
