Cape Town - It's no secret, the Toyota Hilux is popular vehicle. The Japanese automaker has sold thousands of its flagship bakkie since it was launched 10 months ago.
In November 2016, its SRX model recieves a change from the ‘narrow- body’ design to the new ‘wide-body’ construction.
Toyota says its SRX is now wider and taller due to the re-profiled exterior which adds 55mm to the width of Single-cab and Double-cab SRX derivatives (up to 1855mm).
In addition, 17" alloy wheels replace the steel wheels and they use bigger 265/65/R17 all-terrain tyres.
The model line-up remains the same with a multitude of configurations, engines and body-shapes.
Minor upgrade for Fortuner
Toyota has also given its 2.8 GD-6 and 4.0 V6 Fortuner models 18" alloy wheels. Replacing the previously employed 17-inch version, the new alloys are fitted with 265/60/R18 rubber.
