Toyota Hilux wins Total 4X4 Pick-Up of the Year

The Toyota Hilux has received another accolade, taking top honours in the pick-up category of the Total 4x4 awards.

Renowned for its rugged go-anywhere performance, Hilux was the first car to be driven to both the South and Magnetic North Poles and has been tested in the world’s most extreme environments.

Famed for its ultra-tough quality, Hilux is much more than just a workhorse. Today’s sixth generation of Toyota’s pick-up combines traditional robustness and excellent load-carrying capacity with comfort, safety and equipment features to make it a vehicle that ably bridges the divide between work and everyday driving needs.

Alan Kidd, Editor of Total 4x4 magazine said, “Hilux has always stood out in what is a very fiercely fought category. It's incredibly capable in every area and comes at a very appealing price.

“The updates Toyota has made to it are subtle, but they're enough to nudge it back in front of the pack. In particular, its interior is much more modern and, without sacrificing anything in the way of refinement, the vehicle is tougher than ever. There's a lot of talent in the pick-up market, but once again Hilux is the one to beat.”
