Toyota Proace City Parkers Small Van of the Year winner 2021

Toyota Proace City review (2020)

The smallest entrant in the Toyota Professional light commercial vehicle range is the Proace City small van, launched into the UK in 2020. Like the larger Proace (no City) medium van, it’s essentially a rebadged version of a PSA Group model – in this case, it’s a Citroen Berlingo / Peugeot Partner /...

  • Toyota Hilux review - single cab, silver, 2020

    Toyota Hilux review (2020)

    The Toyota Hilux is one of the most recognisable pickup names on the market. The first one went on sale in 1968, and the Hilux quickly established an enviable reputation as a durable workhorse and capable off-roader. This review covers the eighth-generation Hilux, which dates from mid-2016 and is...

  • Toyota Land Cruiser Commercial 4x4 review (2020)

    The Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the toughest, best-known 4x4s in the world, and now for the first time UK buyers are able to order a van version. Launched in 2018 in basic Utility specification, the Land Cruiser Commercial is available as a short-wheelbase (SWB) three-door model and a...

  • Toyota Proace - runner up in the 2020 Parkers Medium Van of the Year Award

    Toyota Proace review (2020)

    This Toyota Proace medium van was launched in September 2016. If it looks vaguely familiar that's probably because it's basically the same van as the equivalent Peugeot Expert and Citroen Dispatch, and the latest Vauxhall Vivaro. Toyota's version features a unique face but a similar...

    Toyota Proace review (2013-2016)

    High R&D costs and limited market volume mean joint ventures are commonplace in the van industry. The Toyota Proace, which replaced the Toyota Hiace in 2013, shares exactly the same chassis, driveline and body panels as the Citroen Dispatch, Fiat Scudo and Peugeot Expert. There are a lot of...

  • Toyota Hilux review on Parkers Vans - exterior

    Toyota Hilux review (2005-2016)

    Sixth-generation Hilux aimed to double sales in the UK and take advantage of the growing number of customers who use double-cab pick-up trucks as their only vehicle. The 2005 model offered standard air conditioning, alarm and remote central-locking, while the top grade double cabs have rear privacy...

  • Toyota Hiace review on Parkers Vans - exterior

    Toyota Hiace review (1983-2012)

    The Hiace is Toyota's largest panel van and is perhaps a cheaper alternative to more modern rivals like the Volkswagen Transporter and Mercedes-Benz Vito, as well as the Vauxhall Vivaro and Renault Trafic. It comes with a choice of engines and wheelbases, and with three trim levels. Fridge and...

  • Toyota Hilux review on Parkers Vans - exterior

    Toyota Hilux review (1976-2005)

    The Toyota Hilux is one of the world’s most popular 4x4 trucks and was the archetypical 4x4 in Britain until the emergence of the Mitsubishi L200, which is now the market leader. Single and double-cabs were available until a facelift in 2001, which saw the addition of an extra-cab version with...

Toyota Proace City dimensions (2020-on)

The Toyota Proace City is available in two body lengths: the short-wheelbase (SWB) L1 and long-wheelbase (LWB) L2. Both come with twin sliding doors and twin rear doors, offering plenty of options for loading. Unsurprisingly, the load area and capacity exactly mirrors its sister vans - the Citroen...
