There is good news for Toyota fans. The company has announced that Toyota Hilux is going to be launched in India on January 20. Toyota is going to enter a new segment through this powerful vehicle. Actually, the Toyota Hilux will be a pickup truck. This segment is not very popular in India at the moment. Before Toyota, ISUZU has been selling its premium pickup trucks in India.
Let us tell you that Toyota Hilux is being sold worldwide for many years, but it will be brought to India for the first time. The Toyota Hilux is based on the IMV-2 platform which is also found in very popular models like Innova Crysta and Fortuner. However, in terms of other features, it will be completely different from other models of the company.
