The European spec Toyota Proace is set to make its debut at Birmingham Commercial Vehicle Show from 26-28 April
All new light commercial panel van Proace and the Proace Verso MPV are making their debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham at the end of this month.
Toyota unveiled the people carrier at Geneva Motor Show this year along its siblings like the Peugeot and Citroen Space Tourer.
What is it?
The all new Proace is not a van to carry cargo boxes to deliver from one place to another but it is more than a delivery van now, it is more like a car, more concrete people carrier and has been turned into the workhorse.
Toyota has pushed the Citroen Peugeot out of the ring with its Proace.
Practicality of Proace
The all new Proace van has very strong and clear ambitions and targets to capture the panel van market by offering the range of variations from different wheel bases to body sizes. But it should be aware of Ford Transit in the UK which has more than 350 variations in the panel van.
Toyota Proace engines
Toyota Proace will be offered with five Toyota engines and each will further be offered with a variety of transmissions and gearboxes. There will be a nine-seater shuttle offered in the market for larger families.
There will be two diesel engines offered with 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre sizes. The power output will range from 94bhp to 180bhp according to the need of the customer. Fuel economy will be the strong point of these engines where the lowest fuel efficient engine will return around 48 miles per gallon. The van will be offered in several trims from Base or Comfort.
