Toyota UK released pricing and specs of its new PSA-sourced Proace van. The mid-size commercial vehicle has something for everyone, offering the choice of nine panel vans in two vehicle lengths and heights, payloads of one or 1.2 tonnes, and three diesel engines.
The engine lineup, all Euro 5-compliant, comprises an 89bhp and 180Nm 1.6-liter, and two 2.0 liters with output of 126 and 161bhp and peak torque figures of 320 and 340Nm respectively. Even the 2.0 liter engine, which is what you want, can manage over 44 mpg, which means with a full 80 liter tank you can cover a distance of 770 miles before refuelling.
Now let’s talk some numbers because that’s what vans are all about. The standard wheelbase (L1) models measure 4,805mm overall, with a 3,000mm wheelbase; the longer versions are 5,135mm long with a 3,122mm wheelbase. The standard height (H1) is 1,942mm, with a higher roof (2,276mm) available with the L2 wheelbase. In L1H1 specification, total load space is 5m3; in the L2H1 vans this increased to 6m3, with the L2H2 offering 7m3.
The Proace comes as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels with wheel caps, fog lamps, daytime running lights and heated electric door mirrors, and you can also specify plain or glazed double steel rear doors, heated rear window, and wash-wipe system. Driver and front passenger airbags, ABS and Vehicle Stability Control are also fitted standard.
