The Americans have mastered the art of turning a pick up truck into a passenger vehicle and it's catching on here too. The latest Hilux is basically a two- or four-wheel drive pick-up used by builders - with lots of extras bits. And competition is fierce, with the Mitsubishi L200 4Life and best-selling Ford Ranger leading the way. The five-seat double cab Hilux is most practical, although interior trim is a bit downbeat even on the higher specification models. All come with a beefy 2.5 turbodiesel engine that performs well but can be noisy when extended on a long journey.
