In Focus: Why This Van Is Still Among Filipinos’ Most Preferred Luxury Vehicles!

It’s fascinating to see how much transportation has evolved. What was once a mere need to get from point A to B, is now a matter of how comfortable and enjoyable car rides can be, virtually bringing the comforts of home into the confines of a vehicle. When it comes to accommodating guests or going on long road trips with family and friends, traveling in the right car especially makes all the difference!

Throughout the years, the Toyota Hiace Super Grandia has been a top-of-mind vehicle for enjoyable transport. For years, it’s shown its mettle as a tried and tested all-around car, while providing utmost comfort and luxury. As good as it already is, the Toyota Hiace Super Grandia shows that there is still room to get better, and lucky for us, we get to benefit from their recent improvements.

Durability and tasteful hospitability. For those who are unfamiliar with the technicalities of motor vehicles, what usually matters are how comfortable they are and how sturdy they can be. The Toyota Hiace Super Grandia is just that—a perfect balance between being one of the toughest vehicles available while providing the utmost comfort for its passengers. Not only does it have a strong exterior, but it also offers a roomy, multi-seater interior (with a hint of luxury, no less). No wonder the Toyota Hiace Super Grandia has been a go-to choice for group travel!

High-quality features. For the more discerning motor vehicle enthusiast, the latest Toyota Hiace Super Grandia model isn’t all aesthetics. Aside from its elegant chrome accents that seamlessly merge its grille as well as the bi-beamed LED headlamps that you can see on the front part of the car, the Toyota Hiace Super Grandia’s Elite variant comes with power sliding doors that provide easier access to its luxurious cabin. On top of that, it’s fuel-efficient thanks to its 174 horsepower diesel engine, intercooler system, and EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation).

A cruise-like ride. Ride experience is quite possibly one of the most important qualities to look for in a car. No matter how sturdy it is, if the ride isn’t smooth, it isn’t worth hopping on. What makes this van more comfortable than its predecessors is that it’s equipped with a McPherson Strut front suspension that provides excellent handling and stability, as well as a 4-Link Coil Spring rear suspension. That means you experience less cabin noise and vibration, and get an overall comfortable and smooth ride!

Advanced safety features & Toyota Safety Sense (TSS). It goes without saying that safety is paramount. Our safety as passengers, of other vehicles, and pedestrians on the road shouldn’t be compromised. That said, every Toyota Hiace Super Grandia is loaded with advanced safety features such as an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Emergency Locking Retractor, Vehicle Stability Control with brake assist, hill start assist, clearance and back sonars, a back monitor, and nine (9) SRS airbags for the driver and passengers, to name a few. The Super Grandia Elite variant, in particular, comes with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS)—the first in Toyota Motor Philippines’ lineup! TSS basically works to identify outside factors that may cause accidents and aids the driver to avoid these factors through features such as the Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and Automatic High Beam (AHB).
