    Riding & Control

    In order to provide comfort to the driver, the Toyota Hilux is equipped with a double whisbone type front suspension and a leaf spring rigid axle rear suspension. This type of suspension is very popular and is widely used by car type vehicle trucks or pick ups. With these two suspensions, Hilux will provide comfort and safety when driving on rough terrain. In addition, the Toyota Hilux is also designed to have a fairly high ground clearance or distance to the ground, so that this car can be relied on to bulldoze terrain with uneven land contours or water fields that have a certain depth.

  • Ride Comfort

    Steering and Handling

    The steering response of the Hilux is predictable and the hydraulic assisted power steering is not that heavy. Despite having a remarkable turning radius, its overall length makes it tricky when negotiating tight turns.

    Passenger Comfort

    Overall ride quality is pretty much what could be expected from a pickup although Toyota has tweaked it to offer a balance between comfort and load carrying capacity.
