Hiace Commuter Overview

The Toyota Hiace Commuter is the biggest people mover from the portfolio of Toyota which is available in the Singapore market. While the Hiace has received a significantly renewed model in many parts of the world, the Singapore market continues to get the older version, which still makes sense a lot for the practicality and reliability it offers.

The Singapore-spec Toyota Hiace Commuter is available in three different variants – Standard Roof Manual ($63,900), Standard Roof Automatic ($64,900) and High Roof Automatic ($69,900). The colour options available for the Toyota Hiace Commuter are White, Silver Mica, Light Yellow, Deep Red Mica and Dark Blue Mica.

Toyota Hiace Commuter Interior & Features

The Toyota Hiace Commuter mimics its basic appeal of the exterior design on the inside as well. The cabin is immensely spacious and can seat multiple people in utmost comfort, however, the layout of the all-black cabin has been kept way too simple and frills-free, with limited features on board as well.

The dashboard carries a theme of rectangular panels, including for the instrument console, centre console which has provision for a music system and glove box and storage spaces on the passenger side. The three-spoke steering wheel might not be a multifunctional unit, but is aligned very ergonomically, and so is the dashboard-mounted gear lever.

All the four rows of the Toyota Hiace Commuter have generous levels of space and do get individual AC vents for all of them.

 

Hiace Commuter Exterior

While this Singapore-spec Toyota Hiace is different from the latest gen Hiace available overseas, it lacks the freshness and modernity of the latter, and has a somewhat bland design language. The boxy appearance of the vehicle makes it look purposeful, but not visually appealing.

The front look of the Toyota Hiace Commuter looks proportional with a sloping theme for both the front windshield as well as the bonnet designed just below it, the latter of which gets nice contours on the sides which flow sideways. The two slat grille on the lower portion of the bonnet looks decent, however, the block themed front headlamps look boring.

From the sides, the Toyota Hiace Commuter means business, with a basic and no-frills design, having large window panes and door panels, the rear ones of which open in a sliding manner. A crisp line flows sideways gives a sense of continuity, but still, it doesn’t look much appealing. Like the front bumper, the door handles, and side rearview mirrors are finished in black.

The rear profile of the Toyota Hiace Commuter is as simple as the front and side, with no major focus on styling whatsoever. The vertically laid tail lamps on the sides and large rear windshield complete the look of the van at the rear.

Toyota Hiace Commuter Ride & Handling

The Toyota Hiace Commuter is not a car with great handling prowess, for the boxy design does give it a high center of gravity, translating into significant body roll. However, the double-wishbone setup at the front and rigid leaf springs at the rear is good enough to absorb all kinds of rough stuff on the road.

Hiace Commuter Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Toyota Hiace Commuter sources its power from a 3.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine, which can be had either with a 5-speed manual gearbox in the basic variant or with a 4-speed automatic gearbox in the other two variants. The engine has the capability to churn out a maximum power output of 143 PS, while the peak torque output is rated at 300 Nm.

Toyota Hiace Commuter Braking & Safety

In the name of safety, the Toyota Hiace Commuter is tad too basic, with the people carrier getting only a driver airbag, ABS, and reverse parking sensors only.

Hiace Commuter Verdict

The Toyota Hiace Commuter might seem to have a limited desirability when it comes to visual appeal, which is boring in this case, and the lack of modernity and creature comforts make it look even more old school. However, for carrying people from point A to point B in utmost comfort, it surely is one vehicle to vouch for, with a generously spacious cabin and reliable engine and suspension working in its favor.

    For the last two months I have been riding on this mid size van. My verdict about my newly owned possession would be this is quite an expert load carrier other than being an impressively comfortable machine. Practicality is also present in its vein. The car is readily available both in long wheelbase as well as super long wheelbase variations. Read More

    The Hiace Commuter is a competent people-mover that is good enough to get the job done, albeit without any hint of luxury. I have been using this MPV as my family car and I am quite content with its performance. Even though the Hiace Commuter does not have a great design, it is the cabin of this vehicle that deserves Read More

    I am in an absolute win-win situation since I have opted for Toyota’s Hiace-commuter. A perfect epitome of practicality and luxury this medium-sized van is. For the load-hauling purpose, this may prove to be the best deal. The car is a refreshing option with all-round window setup. I can easily use this for commercial reasons as the van is well Read More

    It has been half a year since I bought the Toyota Hiace Commuter. I have been driving this commuter for both personal and commercial purposes and I am quite impressed with the kind of performance it has been delivering.

    From its size I thought the HiAce to be a very expensive vehicle. But was surprised to find it affordable. The HiAce is an extremely spacious van. In fact it’s so spacious that you feel like being in a small house. The 3.0-liter diesel engine produces 142bhp power and that’s just what you need for a large vehicle like this. Read More

    The entire Toyota HiAce commuter van focuses on passenger comfort. You won’t find any other van that matches the HiAce here. It has five rows of seats with enough room to stretch your legs. You can manually adjust the bucket seats as per your comfort. The seats don’t have lumbar support but the backrest is fully adjustable. Even with all Read More

    I have seen a lot of people using this Toyota Hiace commuter as a private car which is not a bad thing at all. This car is super cheap and since I am using it for commercial purpose, it fits the purpose perfectly. I had to pay a final price of around $70000, which is like the price of hatchbacks. Read More

    Many people feel that the Toyota Hiac Commuter is very pricey for what it offers. However, when it comes to sheer comfort, seating capacity and space on offer, there is no other vehicle which feels a well-rounded package as brilliant as the Toyota Hiace Commuter. The complete package scores high on comfort and practicality, and at the same time, being Read More
