Muscat: Unleash the Power with the new 4.0 litre V6 Toyota Hilux TRD Sportivo, a truly exciting mean machine that’s been developed by Toyota to get your pulse racing.

Every Toyota Hilux TRD Sportivo comes with high-end features that start with the mighty 4-litre V6 Engine packing a mighty punch with 235 HP & 38.3 Kg-m torque. It has an auto disconnect differential to keep the tempo going. Its stylish, head-turning cues include a handsome TRD Front bumper spoiler, daytime running lights, macho sports bar, swanky 17” TRD alloy wheels with centre cap, capacious a type deck, glistening chrome side steps and auto headlamp levelling.

According to an enthusiast, “As well as building on the legacy of the legendary Hilux, the new Hilux TRD Sportivo is uniquely versatile – it can be used as a rugged, all-terrain pickup but also as a vehicle for urban lifestyles and families. The Hilux TRD Sportivo pushes the boundaries of the classic pickup. It complements the prized strengths of a mid-size pickup with comfort, design and safety for driving to a fun destination as well.

Hilux TRD Sportivo is built on the lines of the legendary Hilux, which has carved a special niche for itself in 180 countries and especially in the Middle East. Having led the segment for a long time, it commands a very wide and popular appeal. According to an enthusiast, “The Toyota Hilux is one of the best pickups on the market, with a dynamic presence integrating advanced power and quality. In fact, Hilux blends new sophisticated design, setting the standards and leading the way for a new generation of versatile utility vehicles.”



The current Generation Hilux models are stunning in design and amenities. Their performance & safety parameters are amongst the best and the strong frame and suspension impart toughness for any demanding task. Apart from this, high-quality materials are used to ensure an attractive look & feel. The distinctive grille renders the Hilux instantly recognisable. Tough tray bodies protect cargo and increase carrying capabilities, while alloy is fitted with wide tyres for a better grip.

The Hilux is the product of a meticulous customer feedback & terrain research by Toyota. Until now, a vehicle’s value was determined by how ‘tough’ it was. However, in developing Hilux the original meaning of ‘tough’ was revisited. Opinions were obtained from people who depended heavily on the Hilux for their daily lives. For whom, it was an indispensable tool, a part of their families, and so on. By getting to know the roads and the people, Toyota learned that a different kind of “tough” was needed. Under rough road conditions, of course, the vehicle should be tough. In addition to that, sometimes long-hour drives with family also require tough which means keeping it comfortable and safe.

The Hilux TRD Sportivo comes equipped with a number of active and passive safety features like anti-lock braking system, electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, vehicle stability control, hill assist control, active traction control, trailer sway control, tyre pressure monitoring system, SRS airbags for the driver and front passenger and knee airbag for the driver.

In Oman, the nationwide parts and service network of Saud Bahwan Automotive support Toyota’s outstanding product quality. No wonder then that today, Toyota is one of the most trusted and well-known brands.
