The Toyota HiAce is a motor vehicle van produced by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota. First launched in 1967, the HiAce has since been available in a wide range of configurations, including minivan and minibus, van, pick-up, taxi, and ambulance. The HiAce and its variants are currently not offered in Europe or North America. The fifth-generation HiAce appeared in 2005 as a wide long-wheelbase wagon, wide super-long-wheelbase high-roof, long-wheelbase van, long-wheelbase high-roof van and a wide super-long-wheelbase high-roof van. In this generation the gear lever has been moved to the dashboard to enable easier movement in the cabin. Five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions are available. Most models use a four-cylinder DOHC engine, in a variety of forms, a 2,700 cc petrol engine and 3,000 cc turbo diesel engine. In Japan, Toyota's internet-enhanced GPS and vehicle telematics service called G-Book was made an option on all trim packages for both private and commercial uses. The fifth-generation HiAce was launched in the Philippines on June 13, 2005. On Japan's list of the most commonly stolen vehicles the HiAce currently resides in first place. Because of a lack of a theft immobilizer, it is fairly easy to steal a HiAce, as opposed to much more valuable SUVs and sports cars, which have more sophisticated theft deterrent systems. HiAces are also popular forms of transportation used by members of the entertainment business in Hong Kong. The exterior of 2004 Hiace features a boxy van-like design. The front end house rectangular side swept headlights, a rectangular grille and dual air intakes. The rear houses stacked trapezium styled stacked vertical side swept taillights and a standard case tailgate. The interior of the 5th Generation Toyota Hiace compromises of dark grey plastic trim pieces. The seats are covered in fabric. Standard features include air conditioning, power steering, power windows, tachometer and a stereo speaker system. Options include satellite navigation and cruise control.
