Used Toyota Hilux 2016 - present review

What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota Hilux pick-up?

Our favourite pick-up truck right now is the Volkswagen Amarok; not only does it have a very practical bed, but it drives really well and has a gutsy 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine. You won’t find soft touch plastics in the interior, but the design is classy and the infotainment system is light-years ahead of the one offered in the Toyota Hilux.

If bed length is your biggest concern, you’ll need a Nissan Navara for its massive load bay. What’s more, the Navara has a powerful engine and a commanding driving position, which will be great for filtering through traffic and picking your route while going off road.

Great if you need a dependable workhorse that’ll always get you out of a muddy building site, but has highly compromised on road manners

  • Highly accomplished off road
  • Great reliability
  • Practical load bay
  • Underpowered
  • Bouncy ride with empty bed
  • Poor infotainment
