Toyota HiLux in Hyderabad
Was passing through 36 Jublee Hills and saw a parked Toyota and was wondering must be a modified SUV, then saw its Toyota HiLux (AUV). Itís a giant AUV.
I wonder if HiLux is a common sight to see on the roads, nevertheless thought of sharing with you guys.

Older Hiluxes had the butch look. This one looks tame and un imposing.

@AMATMO: Buddy, why do you feel it can't be imported to India?

Dunno about the looks but you should see the Top Gear polar special to see what this "tame" truck can do.

I have seen an older version at Road No.12 on Banjara hills. This one looks pretty milder than Tata Xenon XT.

I think this is the same thing on which the Fortuner is based upon.
just as the Sumo Grande has a pickup version in the Xenon..
Fortuner has one in this Hilux..
THe Hilux Surf model is more better looking presence wise.
