New and Used Toyota HiAce for Sale Philippines | Toyota HiAce Price List
It was in the 1960s when Toyota decided that ‘HiAce’ should be the name of its new light commercial range. The name is based on the two distinct qualities that the Japanese car maker wanted the vehicle to possess. According to its original designers, ‘Hi’ represents ‘high performance’, while ‘Ace’ signified ‘hard worker.’ Toyota successfully made sure that these qualities exist in every HiAce iteration, and as such, even after over half a century of different HiAce versions, the vehicle line continues to retain the same essential characteristics. The beauty of the HiAce is its high resale value- a second hand Toyota HiAce for sale will always return a tidy sum.
Since its first generation, the Toyota HiAce van was mainly designed as a commuter vehicle capable of transporting up to 8 people. With this as the primary goal, the earliest HiAce vans’ dimensions followed a shape that could accommodate the most passengers. This was made possible by the cab over body style, with the engine installed underneath and between the front passengers.
The Toyota HiAce is the Philippine’s top-selling van by a mile. Though it doesn’t have much in the glamour department, the trusty HiAce has nevertheless outsold high-profile passenger cars such as the Mitsubishi Montero Sport and the Ford Ranger. It has been in the Philippine market for decades and is easily recognized by many, with a widespread popularity that has helped it rank no. 4 in the list of the “Top 10 Best Selling Cars in the Philippines” for mid-2015. Not much needs to be said about the vehicle except that it is a family or service car that is sure to provide you with reliability, durability and value. The Toyota HiAce is a top contender if you are browsing through 2nd hand cars for sale in the Philippines.

Toyota HiAce Review in the Philippines
Toyota HiAce Specs and Performance
The latest models in the Philippines (particularly the Toyota HiAce 2015 and Toyota HiAce 2016) are equipped with the 2KD-FTV engine—a 2.5 liter diesel D-4D DOHC engine which supplies 102 horsepower and 260 Nm of torque. This engine can accelerate from 0-100 kilometer per hour (kph) in 18 seconds. A 3.0 liter version of the same engine is now available for the 2016 Toyota HiAce, specifically the 3.0 liter 1KD-FTV turbo-diesel engine that produces 170 horsepower and around 343 Nm of torque.
The Toyota HiAce suspension employs a double wishbone system at the front and a rigid leaf spring system at the back. These elements lend the HiAce a skittish ride without load, and the cabin tends to bob about more than it should. However, refinement is not the reason the HiAce sells in vast numbers, but because it is a largely trouble-free workhorse that can endure decades of use.
Toyota HiAce Fuel Consumption
The HiAce’s new 2KD-FTV is a more powerful and efficient diesel engine than its predecessor. Toyota says the updated engine matched with the new automatic transmission helps reduce fuel consumption by as much as 16 percent, while those paired with manual transmission variants have seen fuel use reduced by up to 13 percent.
