Are you one of several that have already ordered for an all-new Super Grandia? It won't be long now until you finally get your hands on one as Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has officially launched the 2020 Hiace Super Grandia.
Bigger, grander and plusher than before, the 2020 Super Grandia comes with four captain seats, optional leather with power ottomans, dual sliding doors, as well as a suite of safety features that will keep the occupants safe while on the road.
While the Super Grandia may look like a typical Hiace, the plusher variant gets a more upmarket look than the standard GL. A fancier-looking front grill makes its way on the Super Grandia and is accompanied by a new set of LED headlights.
There are also additional taillight garnishes and chrome trim pieces at the back which give the people carrier a sleeker and shinier appearance. Also, instead of having just one sliding door, the Super Grandia comes with dual sliding doors for easier ingress / egress. The top-of-the-line Elite version will even come with dual power sliding doors. Finally, stylish 17-inch alloy wheels complete the exterior look of the Super Grandia.
Like the past models, the 2020 model will come with captain seats in the second and third rows. Entry-level models will have fabric upholstery while mid-grade variants will be fitted with leather-trimmed seats. Elite versions, on the other hand, will have the benefit of Alphard-like seats with power ottomans, and quilted leather upholstery.
As far as cabin aesthetics are concerned, the 2020 Super Grandia gets a grander look and feel. Heaps of faux wood trim, along with dark-trimmed material provide an air of sophistication inside the plush people carrier. And, depending on customer preference, the interior of the Super Grandia can be specified with a beige finish (black comes as standard).
Aesthetics aside, the 2020 Super Grandia also rides on a fully-independent double-wishbone rear suspension with coil springs.
A touchscreen infotainment system, along with an automatic climate control with rear vents will keep occupants cool and comfortable while inside this new van.
Under the hood, all variations of the Super Grandia are powered by a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel inline-four. It produces 176 PS at 3400 rpm along with 450 Nm of torque at 1600 - 2400 rpm. Power is then sent to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual select.
Standard safety features available across all variants of the Super Grandia include: anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, stability control, traction control, hill-start assist, reverse camera with parking sensors, as well as a host of airbags.
For the first time, Toyota’s high-tech Safety Sense package is now available and will see active duty in the Elite version of the Super Grandia. With it, active driver aids like lane-departure alert, pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beam will help keep the driver and passengers safe while on the road.
