This new Black Edition features a bolder appearance with a black and dark grey exterior colour theme. Glossy black treatment is applied to the door handles, fog lamp covers, wing mirrors and 18″ alloy wheels, while dark grey finish is used on the bumper guards, as well as the grille to contrast the black.
The Hilux 2.8 Black Edition sits the top of the pick-up range with a selling price of RM139,888 in Peninsular Malaysia (private registration, without insurance). The other variants of Hilux i.e. the 2.4 Single Cab M/T, 2.4 STD M/T, 2.4 G M/T, 2.4 G A/T and 2.4 L-Edition A/T are priced between RM90,000 and RM124,888.
At the same time, UMWT also provided upgrades to the Toyota Hilux, Fortuner and Innova ranges. The updates for each model range is detailed below:
The new Hilux 2.8 Black Edition gets a new infotainment system with a 6.75″ display for a clearer view and easier operation. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are available as standard to allow for seamless connectivity (provided the required software is installed). These connectivity functions allow for your apps to be accessed via the infotainment unit for extra convenience.
UMWT has also introduced the Vehicle Telematics System (VTS), which is free for 3 years when you purchase the Toyota insurance package. Additionally, the Rear Digital Video Recorder (DVR) supplements the recorder installed at the front. The footage from the additional DVR that covers the back of the vehicle will be useful as evidence in the event of a rear-end collision.
Other optional safety features that can be installed in the Hilux are the Advanced Safety & Security features such as the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) on the wing mirrors and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) that detect vehicles approaching from either side as you are reversing out.
The Fortuner 2.7 SRZ and 2.4 VRZ also gets an update to the infotainmnt system, with a large 9″ display and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. The large display makes viewing of information as well as operation much easier.
The Fortuner 2.4 variant now includes seven airbags as well, for added occupant protection. The additional airbags cover the side windows, enhancing protection in side collisions. The side airbags also help reduce the possibility of occupants being ejected from the cabin.
The prices of Fortuner 2.7 SRZ A/T and 2.4 VRZ A/T have not change. However, the 2.4 A/T is now priced at RM171,500 for Peninsular Malaysia (without insurance).
You can also opt to add the rear Digital Video Recorder to complement the standard front-facing camera with the new Fortuner. Having this professionally installed by UMWT’s own trained personnel means that workmanship quality is ensured.
Just like the Fortuner, the Innova 2.0X and 2.0G variants also get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard with a new and larger 9″ display for the infotainment system.
There are 3 variants of the latest Innova i.e. Innova 2.0X A/T, Innova 2.0G A/T and Innova 2.0 E A/T, to choose from, all powered by an efficient and proven 2.0L engine. There are no price changes for Innova.
Optional features for the Innova include the Blind Spot Monitor system (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert system (RCTA). These two active safety systems can help to reduce collisions with other vehicles which may not be visible to the driver in certain circumstances.
Further, you can also opt to install Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) at both the front and rear of the vehicle. By ordering them prior to purchase, installation can be done at UMWT’s own Accessories Centre to ensure quality of installation.
