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.

As an additional bonus, the 2.7 VVTi and 2.4 GD-6 Fortuner derivatives are furnished with leather interior trim.
