The shape and body of Toyota Hiace has changed in every generation. Until today, Toyota Hiace has a pretty shape due to the advancement of technology and materials.
Toyota Hiace was produced for three main purposes like carrying passengers, carrying luggages and for hospital use(ambulance). The advancement of technology brought big changes in commercial vehicles which arrived bit by bit across the early versions, but usually in a bold shift for individual version. Toyota Hiace is available in automatic and manual transmissions.
