Unleashing the 2018 Toyota Hilux TRD Sportivo

Muscat: Imagine the benefit of owning a beast that is tough enough to handle any job with ease whilst also helping you get all the attention as you push the limits!
That is the advantage only a 4.0 litre V6 Toyota Hilux TRD Sportivo can award you with.
Specially developed by highly spirited engineers at the Toyota Motor Corporation, the Toyota Hilux TRD packs the legendary Hilux ruggedness along with high-end features that start with the mighty 4.0 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.
The Hilux TRD Sportivo is uniquely versatile – it can be used as a rugged, all-terrain pickup and 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.
The current generation Hilux models are stunning in design and amenities. Their performance and 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 and feel. The distinctive grille renders the Hilux instantly recognisable. Tough tray bodies protect cargo and increase carrying capabilities, while alloy wheels are 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 the family require comfort and safety along with toughness.
The Hilux TRD Sportivo comes equipped with a number of active and passive safety features like ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill Assist Control (HAC), Active Traction Control (ATRC), Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), SRS Airbags for the Driver and Front Passenger and Knee Airbag for the Driver.
Safety kit includes fire extinguisher, warning triangle, tyre pressure gauge & first aid kit.
In Oman, the nationwide parts and service network of Saud Bahwan Automotive support Toyota’s outstanding product quality. No wonder that today, Toyota is one of the most trusted and well-known brands.
