The most-enquired-on Toyota Hilux on AutoTrader this year is the 2018 Hilux 2.4GD-6 Xtra Cab SRX with an average of 92,118km on the clock.
This model, listed at an average price of R368,782, generates a lot of interest from local motorists.
Below, we see what you get when buying this second-hand Toyota Hilux.
This Hilux SRX was launched as the “mid-tier” offering in August 2018 and offers a black-themed grille, mirrors, and side steps – along with 17-inch alloy wheels.
The Xtra Cab body style then allows a longer cabin with more space than the traditional single cab, while not impeding on load-carrying capacity as much as the double cab’s passenger cell and four doors.
While on the topic: this particular Hilux supports a maximum load capacity of around 800kg, while also being able to fit up to five passengers.
This mix of versatility is likely one of the main reasons that it is currently being considered by so many local bakkie buyers.
Inside, this Hilux offers a healthy list of features – despite its mid-range status.
The front fascia incorporates a large touchscreen system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, playing through a four-speaker sound system.
In addition, the SRX grades are fitted with “durable fabric” seats, all-round electric windows, manual air conditioning, remote central locking, front fog lamps, a multifunction steering wheel, and a multi-information driver’s display as standard.
Powering the SRX-badged bakkies of later 2018 is a 2.4-litre, turbo-diesel engine that generates 110kW and 400Nm between 1,600rpm and 2,000rpm.
The most-enquired-on pre-owned Hilux in South Africa then comes with a six-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels, while six-speed automatic and four-wheel-drive derivatives of this trim are also available.
The motor is good for a 0-100km/h sprint of 13.2 seconds, a top speed of 175km/h, and a maximum braked towing capacity of 2,750kg for the Xtra cab.
A relatively high ground clearance of 279mm further assists in making this Hilux a versatile daily driver.
According to AutoTrader, the average list price of the 2018 Toyota Hilux 2.4GD-6 Xtra Cab SRX bakkies in 2021 is R368,782.
This is a R17,918 (4.6%) discount on the bakkie’s original starting price of R386,700 in August 2018.
