The Chrome on the wheels are not Wheel covers but are proper Wheels. I saw the disks through the gap.
@Sohail, The volvo ones are different and alot smaller.

Looks like one for sure

For some reason I am not able to find any information about a Toyota Tourister.

It is just a Hiace, known locally as another name. Hiace comes in various configurations, including the Hiace Touring, high roofline, panel van et al. This is probably one of those variation with a little customisation.

This the long wheel base version of the Toyota Hiace Commuter, with top end features for the luxury hotel commuter business.
Though the Alphard is considered the top end MUV from the Toyota stables.

Spotted this a few days back. The chrome quality looked quite cheap. It would have looked better if it was black and chrome.

Guyz one doubt.
The customs duty for vehicles seating 13 and more have a duty of only 10%.
So ,if importing an Hiace, sat for about 10 lacs,then we have to pay a duty of 1 lac only?
