Hiace is another word for reliable in New Zealand. Built tough, but with stylish, modern looks, it has the kind of versatility other vans can only dream about. From couriers to schools, builders, to large families, small businesses to sports teams, the high-capacity Hiace range can help you do what you want, when you want.
The latest layout of the Hiace range includes 2-seats in the front row. This leaves ample space for a larger central console area – perfect for laying out your work, leaving your clipboard or scanner, or just having a bit of lunch.
Now as standard in all Hiace models VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) helps you correct a loss of control by detecting if the vehicle is starting to skid or slide. By comparing the vehicle's direction of travel with your steering, acceleration and braking inputs it can tell if you are deviating from the intended direction. VSC then warns you, reduces engine power and controls the brakes to help you correct the situation.
The Hiace ZL’s interior is as cavernous as it is clever. The intelligently designed layout helps you to maximise the number and size of items you can carry, while making short work of deliveries, drop-offs or removals. And the combination of a wide opening rear and sliding side door means you can easily reach any items you’re moving.
No two loads are the same, which is why Hiace allows you to rearrange the seating in a number of easily-swappable configurations. The 2-seat option automatically maximises your cargo area – ideal for those who are on the job 24/7 and need as much carrying capacity as possible. The 5-seat option provides ample space when you need it, and seating for passengers when you don’t.
The average busy Hiace driver looks in their rear view mirror hundreds of times a day. That’s why Hiace has its full-colour reversing camera where it feels right – at eye-level where your electrochromatic rear view mirror already sits. This image is activated the moment you put the Hiace in reverse gear, allowing you to get on with the driving without worrying about where to look.
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) is there to assist the driver when starting on steep hills, and is particularly helpful on low-traction and off road surfaces. HAC prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards by applying the brakes for a short time after the brake pedal is released. The driver can then move their foot from the brake to the accelerator pedal without worrying that the vehicle will roll back.
