Toyota Hilux SRX models get ‘beefed-up’
A beefed-up version of the new Toyota Hilux SRX is the result of the company’s extensive market research indicating that this, among other things, is what customers want.
The most notable change is from the narrow-body design to a wider configuration, with bold integrated over-fenders (as seen on existing Raider models) paired with a wider, front bumper design. This re-profiled exterior adds 55mm to the width of Single-cab and Double-cab SRX derivatives (up to 1855mm).
Other changes are to the external mirrors that gain turn signal lamps and the 17-inch steel wheel have been replaced by alloy wheels of the same dimension, shod with 265/65/R17 all-terrain rubber (to replace the current 225/70/R17). The new wheels are shared with the Raider grade.
