Toyota South Africa has upgraded its Quantum range, adding comfort and convenience features along with exterior upgrades on selected models.
The Quantum GL bus now includes 16-inch alloy wheels fitted with 235/65 R16 tyres, while the wheel size is now standardised across 11-seater and 14-seater models.
“A new upgraded rear-view mirror incorporates an auto-dimming function (electrochromatic), as well as reverse camera display,” said Toyota.
“The newly-added reverse camera provides drivers with a clear view behind the vehicle, offering improved visibility while also promoting safety.”
Toyota said the Panel Van and Crew Cab models will receive the auto-dimming rear-view mirror and reverse camera upgrade, too.
The company went on to state that based on “market response and customer feedback”, it has decided to reduce the number of Panel Van and Crew Cab derivatives.
“The non-air-conditioned models have been discontinued, while the Crew Cab line-up has been simplified by deleting the rear air-conditioned version from the line-up,” said Toyota.

Hiace Covid-19 guard
In addition to the Quantum upgrades, Toyota has implemented a “Covid-19 driver guard” on its Hiace Ses’fikile vehicle.
“This enhanced driver guard provides additional protection for the driver against possible Covid-19 transmission – thereby providing enhanced peace of mind for both drivers and passengers,” said Toyota.
All Hiace Ses’fikile models produced from October 2020 onwards are fitted with the Covid-19 driver guard as standard.
