The Toyota HiAce van and light bus range has been upgraded for 2014 with subtle styling tweaks and an expanded list of comfort, convenience and safety features.

Reshaped headlights with daytime running lights, a new trapezoidal radiator grille with larger openings and a revised bumper with sharper edges freshen the look of the 2014 HiAce at the front.

The cabin trades its front bench seat for an individual passenger seat and a centre console box, and also benefits from the introduction of cruise control, a new four-spoke steering wheel with audio switches, and an LCD multi-information display screen showing the time, odometer and outside temperature.

New safety features include seatbelt warning buzzers for the front-row occupants and a seatbelt warning lamp for the front passenger.

The Toyota HiAce continues to be offered in three body styles: long- and super-long-wheelbase vans and 14-seat commuter bus. All are available with 2.7-litre petrol and 3.0-litre diesel engines, and with the option of five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions.

The price of the HiAce vans carries over unchanged, while HiAce bus variants increase $500.
