If you grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, chances are your family or someone you knew had a Toyota Hiace for a family car. True enough, this long-running Toyota offering celebrates its 50th birthday this year. And it has a special 50th anniversary model to mark this auspicious occasion.
The Toyota Hiace 50th Anniversary Limited gives the erstwhile van a host of special touches that celebrate its half century existence. Available in long and short wheelbase as well as standard and high roof, the Hiace gets goodies like LED headlights flanking a dark chrome grille. On the side, sliding doors get electric motors for greater convenience and pinch protection for added safety. Out back, a 50th anniversary logo adorns the tailgate while all this is finished off by a commemorative badge on the key fob.
