Van review: Toyota Proace

The cost of developing a commercial is such that even manufacturers such as Toyota to pool resources with to make it economically viable.

Toyota needed a new light van to the hugely respected Hiace, it to PSA (Peugeot Citroen). chiefly the Japanese company was 
already in a split with them, city cars.

Proace is short of a rebranding of the Peugeot/Citroen/Fiat van and is built at the same Northern factory. On paper it’s a move and a fair result – but is it previous Hiace owners

They know only too that, along with (Vito) and Volkswagen (Transporter), the in its heyday, was a cut above the rest in of civility and build quality, it ideal for owner-operators seeking a rest and play vehicle. is one reason why Ford recently the stylish Transit Custom for a market.

Unlike Mercedes, who it lent a hand in refreshing the Kangoo before it would put its star on the front, Toyota has rebadged the French van, did include a comprehensive five-year as part compensation for paying the cost of owning a Toyota than the more common trio.

The Citroen Dispatch/Peugeot Expert, still a good van, is now its age compared with more rivals. Its good points the excellent diesel engine especially the higher-tune variants, an designed load bay boasting opening doors and ample lashing points, and pure and driving ease where sure-footed handling and a comfortable cab quickly make you feel at

What it isn’t is the type of light van that made the stand out. Don’t get us the Proace looks and feels OK, but a smoothness and upmarket feel you got a Toyota. On the other hand, at Toyota can now can offer a fuller which includes a selection of lengths and roof heights a crew cab variant.

Comparisons with the lower PSA alternatives are inevitable, and don’t Fiat with its near and even cheaper Scudo. In the buying decision rests the individual dealer deals – and how much you want a Toyota-badged of course. It’s no better than its in-house counterparts but may better resale values to the badge.

But in our mind, the Proace is nobody, least of all Hiace and we’d opt for a Peugeot, Citroen or version instead and pocket the – to put towards the real Hiace we hear Toyota is already
