Cape Town - In late October 2016, Wheels24 reported on a video showing the Toyota Hilux bakkie failing a handling test (called the Moose Test).

In the video, created by Swedish motoring publication Teknikens Värld, the Hilux can be seen travelling at 60km/h as a test driver attempts to navigate a 'Moose Test''. The publication demonstrated that the Hilux performed worse than several of its rivals.

Earlier in 2017, Toyota said it would release a "package of measures" to remedy the issue. 

New video test results

The swedish publication posted a test of the "revised" Hilux in action. According to the publication: "The new Toyota Hilux now handles an evasive manoeuvre in the so-called moose test. The pick-up truck has been updated by the Japanese car manufacturer."

We've included how the Hilux's rivals fared in the original video at the end of this article.
