When real issues matter, when you’re off the beaten track and disconnected from suburbia, there are probably only two vehicles the average citizen would want to find themselves in. One is the new Ford Ranger, of course, de rigueur in South African metropoles right now, and justifiably considered to be a great off-roader, which it is. And then there’s the Toyota Hilux 4×4, a vehicle that comes with a wealth of history, vetted performance, and even some affection from South African motorists.
No matter that there are rivals to the throne, a Hilux comes into its own when getting there matters –and there are no roads! A staple of off-road tracks everywhere in the country, few other vehicles come with the reassurance factor of a Hilux 4×4. Having built a solid reputation for reliability and performance, a Hilux remains the quintessential vehicle for discerning off-roaders. Consistently ranking as the top or almost top performer in global annual trials, the Hilux’s reputation explains the predominance of Toyota 4×4 hires South Africa sees each year.
Suits All Off-Roaders, for Good Reasons
Indeed, a Toyota 4×4 hire comes with some unique benefits. First off, you know this vehicle will have to be struck by a missile before it lets you down–and even then – it’ll probably make it to the nearest garage! Secondly, you have the benefit of ergonomic comfort designed over decades, especially important when you’re off the road. Thirdly, a Toyota 4×4, is a combination of great performance and fuel efficiency. It is certainly no gas guzzler grinding through the Bush. Its consumption and low emissions are important considerations when you’re living the green life. If you’re doing the wilderness, do it as politely as possible.
True to South African machismo, many novice off-roaders downplay the need for comfort when “roughing it”, but seasoned trailers know only too well that the ideal vehicle to be in when off-road is one that will provide great performance in the saddle, over rocks and through rivers, but comfort on the journey home is important too. No one wants to sit in discomfort for the hours it normally takes to get to and from the trail or campsite. If you opt for our 4×4 hire, you won’t have to. Toyota’s ergonomic comfort regardless of distance or terrain is one of the features that have made the brand famous.
