No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is a Toyota Hiace with an Alphard grille. But before you say that it’s a special one-off, it’s actually available locally via Atoy Customs 4x4 and Bodykits.
If you happen to have a previous-generation Hiace and are looking to really make it stand out from the sea of other Hiace vans, this conversion kit will fit.
From the distinct grille, LED turn signals, foglights, foglight bezels, and even the LED headlights and daytime running lights, the Hiace has essentially been turned into what we like to call the ‘Alphace’. Even the rear was given attention as it now gets a new pair of LED taillights, a roof spoiler, and even a different rear bumper.
Some of you might be saying that they had to sacrifice an Alphard in order to make this conversion happen. In reality, however, it’s actually a complete kit that’s imported and makes use of new parts - meaning no Alphards were harmed in the making of the conversion kit.
Thinking of getting one for yourself? The Alphard conversion kit for the Hiace will set you back PHP 195,000. Pricey it may be for some, but at least you can have yourself a Toyota Alphace... or Hi-phard.
What do you think of the Alphard conversion kit? Does it suit the Hiace or is it overly-styled?
