Toyota Motor Philippines completed their Hiace lineup on August 19, 2019 with the launch of the all-new Toyota Hiace Super Grandia. “The Hiace Super Grandia is a preferred van of companies in various industries and is quite popular as a family vehicle.

Precise chrome accents add elegance to the large front grille which merges with the defined bi-beam LED head lamps. The rear chrome garnish mirrors the front design and is also complemented by the distinctive shape of the LED rear combination lamps. The low center of gravity and wide stance is accentuated by the chrome lining that runs along the side to the bottom of the rear bumper.

Upon entry, the interior illumination sets a relaxing mood which can be adjusted to the passenger’s preference. Illumination can be set to blue, amber, or white for the Elite variant. Passengers enjoy luxurious personal space with the captain seats that occupy the first and second row.
